The challenge for the Cuttlebug Spot Design Team this week was to work hat pins into your card. I love working pins into my cards whenever I can.

Lucky for me I just got new rubber in the mail from Prickley Pear and I got this really pretty doily. Man, doily's are so hot right now. I see them everywhere.

As you can see I used mine as a flower. I think it really worked well.
I stamped it in Versamark on pink paper, embossed in clear and then used concord grape distress ink over the embossing.

Do those leaves look familiar? They are the butterfly punch from Stampin' Up.

Dies— Scallop Circle nestibles
Stamps—Doily Prickley Pear, Sentiment PTI
Paper—Solid SU and PP French Paper
Ink—Versa Magic and Distress ink
Punches— Martha Stewart grass, SU scallop border and SU butterfly
Other—Foam tape, Mark Richards pearls, Pearl pins and clear embossing powder

Don't forget to stop by The Cuttlebug Spot Blog and play along with the DT


  1. This is so pretty! What a clever idea to use the butterfly punch for the flower leaves!

  2. This is such a good idea, I sort of misunderstood this week, I actually thought we had to make a hatpin...luckily Kerry pointed me on the projectbit, LOL. Still never made a hatpin in my life and now I can say I have!!
    Love this months theme!


  3. jennifer...how are you these days? hope good.

    i finally made time to stop over my team mates blogs.

    i have to say i love your idea for this challenge.
