Doodle Borders on pages and cards?

Hello Crafty Friends, 

When you doodle, how do you do it? With a journaling pen, with stamps or both? I typically use my pen. I often just add a little line and call it a day. However last fall, about November I started adding additional details to my lines with mini and micro stamps. So starting today, Close to My Heart introduced a new stamp set focuses around doodles and borders, called.... Doodle Borders!

HUGS Card: 

With Valentines day upon us (13 days away) I whipped up this cute card, and added the Doodle Borders heart stamp in Peach and the only sentiment in black at the bottom! A little wispy embellishing thread behind the sentiment draws your eye in. The itty bitty (they truly are itty bitty) sparkles gives off the right amount of, well, sparkle. I finished embellishing my card with a doodle border with my black journaling, and adding some shimmer to my squares. Super cute, right? 

Say What? Layout:

Next I have a 12x12 page to show off, using this new stamp set, Doodle Borders. Again this stamp set is CHUCKED full of doodles and border stamps. Before I forget, my layout is made with only scraps. On the lagoon piece (top) you can see a very cute loop stamp repeatedly stamped from left to right. The Bluebird piece (center left) you can see all of these tick like mark doodles. This stamps set is a small square and with some careful placement and repeated stamping the entire piece was covered in no time at all.  To wrap up my doodle stamping, I used the sentiment included in the stamp set, to repeatedly stamp all over the clover cardstock. For each one of these pieces, I used tone on tone stamping, or I used the same color of ink as the paper in which I was stamping. Lagoon ink on Lagoon cardstock, Clover ink on Clover Cardstock and Bluebird ink on Bluebird Cardstock. I love the look of this so much.

I stamped blank White Daisy  with the quotable words stamps. The fun title comes from the NEW Marquee Alphabet stamp set! 

I hope I have inspired you with the new Doodle Borders stamp set to get crafty!
