Doilies Everywhere!

This is the second post for today.  Please scroll down for this morning's post 'Kitchen Diva'.
(please click on each photo to enlarge the photo, so you can really see the detail)

As most of you have seen on the internet, Doilies have really made an impact this year in paper crafting.  I don't really know why.  But, just take a look around, and they are everywhere!  I don't mean that in a bad way.  I have been using them, or their likeness on my paper crafting items myself.   I just want to emphasise their popularity!

The creative folks are Stampin' Up! have come up with some super fun projects and cards!  And here are a few photos of those items!

The first photo is a simple holiday gift box.  The large stamp is heat embossed on the top of the package and tied with some crochet trim.  Not alot of work, and not alot of product, but just look at the visual impact!  WOW!  The next 3 photos are cards.  They all use a various sized doily stamps, but they all have their own creative style!  So, no matter what your style is, you can surely use a doily stamp!  Even if you stamp the doily and use a circle punch to punch out the image and use it as a tag!

The collection is called, 'Flirtatious' and I think it is just that!  Very fun, fresh, and flirty!  This collection has two stamp sets in it, also.  The large doily stamp is actually one of the background stamp sets, called, 'Hello, Doily'.  There is another stamp set, that has 4 various smaller doily stamps in it, called, 'Delicate Doilies'.  The wonderfully creative folks @ Stampin' Up! have also created a matching specialty pattern paper, Flirtatious Designer Series Paper.  The colors used in this collection are: Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White.  These totally girly colors are crisp, and clean.  You also get two sheets of laser cut doilies!  How fabulous is that?
But that's not all!  The folks @ Stampin' Up! have also designed some fabulous fabric by the same name (Flirtatious).  Here are two photos that showcase their fabric.  This first fabric photo, uses the Flirtatious fabric that is sewn onto flour sack towels as ruffles!  The last photo, is of a toddlers cardigan sweater with the fabric used as ruffle accents (again) sewn to the front.  (this item is also showcased in the Big Idea & Catalog, page 127)  Thank you for looking!  I hope these photos have given you some fabulous ideas! and have gotten your creative juices flowing!
