Waltzingmouse February Blog Party


Gotta tell you I just love playing along every 17th with the Waltzingmouse Blog Party.  I enjoy seeing all the different ways everyone uses their Waltzingmouse Stamps to fit the theme and it gives me lots of ideas on ways to use my own.  Well this month's theme is Doilies!   So it's an obvious choice  I guess to go straight for the Large Doily and Dainty Doilies sets.   For me these ones don't get the proper attention they deserve.  They wind up as a background or a frame for a different image.  Today they are taking center stage in all sorts of pretty colors. 
I will keep this short so you have lots of time to hit all the other blogs today.  I just inked up the dollies in lots of pretty colors, die cut them and then stacked them to appeal to my eye.  Maybe it sounds silly but these perfectly placed repeating patterns always get me thinking about math so a numbers background seemed  right to me.
To see all the other blogs who have joined the party you can click here.  And it's not too late to get your own design linked up too!   Hope I see you there!

You officially are the doily layering queen! You used your doily sets to the utmost today, love the pretty colors and the great layering. I also really love that patterned paper behind the doilies with all those numbers, reminds me of the lottery!

SOOOO beautiful, Jeanne! Like a spring doily garden! My fave is the quadruple stacked one :) It's so fantastic layered that way and in those COLORS! I love how you have them placed off of the page, too. And the little pearls, and pin, and sentiment banner! A feast of color for my tired winter eyes ;)!

I agree I dont think these stamps get the attention they deserve. I have really taken notice of them at this hop. Love them! You are the queen of doilies in my book.
Your card is gorgeous and showcases these stamps beautifully!
I ordered a doily you used a few cards ago I had to have it after I saw it on your card. Tea time

I don't know anyone who does doilies better than you, Jeanne! This is incredible! Beautiful use of colors and repeating shapes, and I love how the numbers ground the design (makes sense to this science geek!).
