doily blue tag - Kianel

Morning CLD friends!
Kianel here with you today to show you that a doily is not just a doily but that you can use it in many ways. I made a blue tag on which i used no less than 3 different CLD doilies: 1 to make Tilda's wings (oriental butterfly doily), 1 to make the border at the bottom of my tag (english doily) and 2 to make the big flower ( french doily and what was left of the english doily). I painted everything with ink and shimmer paints, embossed the tag and painted and inked it, finally add some embellishments and my Tilda stamp from Magnolia's last collection and voilĂ !
And here is a picture showing you all the shimmer and the "oriental butterfly doily" from CLD of which i cut the middle part to give Tilda those beautiful wings:
Here is a close up of the border i made cutting out the edge of the "english doily" CLD die:
The flower is made from what was left of the "english doily" CLD die (i.e piece of edge that i flipped and circle of the center which i used as a base) and the edge of the "french doily" CLD die that i flipped ang glued.
Picture of the same flower but showing you the shimmer and layers:
And finally here is a close up of the tag's background which i embossed using the CLD embossing plate called "hearts and rose leaves" (to get a better embossing, i also used the XL embossing mats and metal adaptator that CLD does for Cuttlebug users like me):
And picture of the same background showing you the shimmer:
Here are the products i've used so click on the pictures to come directly to the product:

I also wanted to show you this little basket i made with the fantastic "Big wicker" that CLD released for the CHA. So clever to flate (is that the correct word???) and i just love it!!! Ideal to put some candies on a birthday party table or just to offer some chocolates to your beloved ones!
Here are the CLD products i used for this mini basket:
Big Wicker 1/4" Strips Butterfly Bundles

That's all for me, have a beautiful sunday and see you next week! And don't forget to pop up here everyday to see the masterpieces of my DTmates!
Love from France, Kianel.

  3. Kianel, I am amazed at what you created with the doily dies! I love Tilda's wings and the flower you created out of the doilies. Your tag has so much creativity. Very beautiful!! Your Mini Basket is also very clever!!

  4. Beautiful card. I never even thought of using the doilies to make flowers with. Thanks for the idea. Did you make the white flower also? If so, with what. Colors are so pretty. Edna

  5. Amazing project! I love how you used a butterfly to make the wings it opens so many possibilities! Thank you for sharing!

  6. Kianel, these projects are just fabulous, very inventive ways to use the doilies. And your basket is just adorable. Wonderful work!

  7. Thanks girls!
    I am glad you like the projects.
    Answering to Edna here: the white flower in the middle is a ready made flower from my stash. But i am pretty sure it will be possible to make one smaller with the doilies as you can the edge to whatever size you like!
    Love from France, Kianel.

  8. Wonderful projects, Kianel! love the texture and the way you used the butterfly doily!
