Dress Form Framelits and a Delicate Details Lace Tip.

OK so I know I have been on a bit of a Dress Cardmaking Roll at the moment but I had to just show you what you can do with the Dress Form framelit on it's own.

I just loved using the dress form on this card.
I used the Designer series paper from Print Poetry and this piece is actually a sewing guide print would you believe! I got right into the "sewing" theme and attached some stitched grosgrain ribbon and a fabric trim flower for added interest. I love those words from Loving Thoughts, don't you?


I also did a vintage style card using this dress form. Come and have a look.

I have used Rich Razzleberry for my base card. Ink used was Rich Razzleberry, Choc Chip and Early Expresso.
 The designer paper is First Edition Specialty paper from the main catalogue and Tea for Two Designer paper from the mini.
The pink pirouette scalloped oval is cut in half and embossed with Lacy Brocade Emboss Folder.
I stamped the two butterflies and layered them to give a nice 3d effect.



 Here is a close up of the dress form. Can you see I have had fun stamping on it with Established Elegance Stamp Set and adding a little fabric flower trim for good measure.






 If you look closely you can see a pattern down one side of the dress form. Would you like to know how I did that? 
Well....

Yes! I have used some Delicate Details Lace Tape. (page. 3 of the mini catalogue)
 This stuff is great for masking as it has a plastic finish. It can easily be removed when finished with and wiped clean. The ink comes straight off.

This piece has been used at least 6 times already and it looks as good as new! It doesn't tear the cardstock either when you remove it.


I just sponged some ink over with a sponge dauber like so.





Then remove lace tape. Voila!
Add some extra detailed stamping if you require and ink around edges.

So that is my little tip for the day. Hope you liked it.
Come again soon. I have some Mother's Day Cards to show this week.

  1. Both these cards are stunning Vicki. I love them both, but would probably lean slightly toward the vintage pink & brown card.
