Double-Lined Doodles... Tips and More!

Love those Petals

It has been a few days since I posted a sample... I have been extremely busy finishing up deadlines etc. This is the first card I have created using my Cuttlebug and folders that I recently purchased... love it and I am so glad I purchased one.

Tips: I love the look of the flowers in this set when they are cut out and popped up, it adds a lot of dimension and detail to the cards quickly. Some may frown on cutting because it takes so long, others have trouble cutting due to issues with hands etc... I wanted to share some tips specific with this set that will help the cutting process go faster. With the help of one of the Stampin' Up! punches you will wonder why you weren't cutting these out all along.

Supplies Needed: 1 1/4 " hole punch, paper snips and flowers

Fast Cutting: Start by stamping and coloring in images, it is easier to do it now than later. Once you have completed that you going to center the flowers inside the 1 1/4" hole punch and pop them out. Then use your paper snips and create triangle cuts to finish cutting out the flowers.

Card Details:
Stamps: Double-Lined Doodles
Ink: Basic Black, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac and Certainly Celery
Cardstock: Whisper White, Almost Amethyst, Rose Red
Other: Cuttlebug Spots and Dots folder, 1 1/4" hole punch, Rose Red Brads

Kyla - I was lucky enough to attend regionals as a guest this past Spring. I wasn't nuts about this set (not sure I like the whole doodles thing), and had even considered selling my set to a loving home. I have to say that I have LOVED every single card you've made with this set, and you've changed my outlook entirely! So, I'll try my hand at a few cards :) TFS!

I have to admit, when I first received this set I wasn't too excited! But since I've played with it, and seeing your creations, this set has been growing on me! Can't wait to play with it some more!
