Lovely Lily Pad
Hello Everyone and Welcome,
I have a card I want to share with you using the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and the coordinating Lily Pad dies. First off all of these products are available for FREE with a qualifying Sale A Bration order placed. The stamp set is Free with a $50 purchase and the Lily Pad dies are FREE with a $100 purchase. The sentiment was from the So Sentimental stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Spring Mini Catalog.
Now to make this card I started with a base of Pretty Peacock cardstock and cut it to 5.5 x 8.5 and scored it in half at the 4.25 mark. I then used a piece of the shimmer paper trimmed to 4 x 5.25. On it I laid down some ink using my aqua painter and three colors. Pretty Peacock at the bottom, Pacific Point in the center and Balmy Blue towards the top. I just did a light wash across the paper from side to side gently blending where the colors came together. I set that aside and let it dry.
Next I stamped the Lily image and the lily pad image onto watercolor paper with some Memento Black ink and once it was dry I colored them in with stampin' blends. I used Granny Apple Green light and dark for the lily pad with a little bit of mossy meadow dark on the outer edges. I colored the lily in with Lovely Lipstick light and dark leaving some white areas near the tips of the petals. I then went over the white areas with some Flirty Flamingo light. I cut both pieces out with the matching lily pad dies and arranged them on my card with stampin' dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink and added a few of the Champagne Rhinestones around. I finished it off with a bow made with the Lovely Lipstick 1/8 in ribbon and glued it down with a mini glue dot.
