Minty Lace

When I saw the latest Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Trigger:

I knew immediately that I'd use my Hero Arts Lace Background somehow, but I needed more inspiration to give me a push. In my world, inspiration = a sketch, so I chose the current Paper Players sketch:

I decided the background would be the lace, and the circle would be a doily, and I made this:

I kinda like how this turned out, a LOT. The lace background stamp was embossed in white onto a Hero Arts pool note card. I cut it apart to make the layer and rounded the corners with a 1/8" corner chomper to soften it a bit.

The doily and banner are cut from the same linen paper as the card base, and I opted for some ancient PSX detail platinum embossing powder for the sentiment. I thought it still needed something else, so I embossed a piece of the linen paper with the platinum EP and die-cut some hearts from it. You can almost see some of the detail and shine here:

I love it when a plan comes together!

Okay, now I might actually venture OUTSIDE. I want to go to The Container Store and see what I can get to help me get more organized in The Captain's Quarters. The overflow situation is getting on my nerves.

Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: PSX detail platinum embossing powder, and the following:


  1. I absolutely love this inspiration photo as well as your beautiful card. What I can't seem to get past though is how tiny that woman's waist is (in the inspo photo). Is that even possible? Where do her organs go?

    Seriously, though. That's a stunning card.

  2. Fabulous CAS design for this Tuesday Trigger! You're embossing is so intricate and yet came out so well. Great work Leslie!

  3. I was gonna start working on this challenge but now maybe I better not. Lol great work!

  4. Hey Leslie! Thanks for linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)

  5. i had many nice things to say about this lovely card generally and how well if fits the MFW brief, specifically, but then you mentioned THE CONTAINER STORE and i kinda swooned a little. even a VICARIOUS mention of that fine emporium does that to me! :) :) :)

  6. Absolutely beautiful! I love the gorgeous background paper. A perfect clean and classy card. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  7. This is absolutely beautiful, Leslie!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
