Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For my card today, I’ve used a lot of Sale-A-Bration Products, including the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set, Lily Pad Dies and the Lily Impressions designer series paper.
We have a color challenge this week, and here is the bold and beautiful color palette I am using for my card:
I started by adhering a panel of the Sale-A-Bration Lily Impressions designer series paper on a Bermuda Bay Card base with snail. I cut the large label from the Stitched Label Dies in Bermuda Bay card stock. I cut two large outline lilies and one small outline lily from the Sale-A-Bration Lily Pad Dies in Lovely Lipstick card stock. I cut two medium solid flowers and one small flower from the Lily Pad Dies in Petal Pink Vellum. I cut two large leaf clusters and one small leaf cluster from the Lily Pad Dies in Granny Apple Green card stock. I trimmed the stems from the large leaf clusters.
I stamped the large lily pad from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad Sale-A-Bration stamp set in Granny Apple Green ink on Granny Apple Green card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Lily Pad Dies. I adhered the lily pad to the large stitched label with multipurpose liquid glue. I made three flower clusters by layering the Lovely Lipstick outline flower on the Petal Pink vellum flower and topping it off with a leaf cluster. I adhered them together with multipurpose liquid glue, being careful to keep the glue behind the cardstock. I accented each flower with a Lovely Lipstick enamel dot and adhered them to the label with dimensionals. Again, I was careful to place the dimensionals behind the cardstock, and ended up cutting small, skinny pieces. I adhered the label to the card base with dimensionals.
I cut the decorative die cut strip from the Lily Pad Dies in Bermuda Bay card stock. I trimmed it to 4″ and adhered it to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the A Little Lace stamp set in Versamark Ink on Lovely Lipstick and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I heat set the sentiment and cut it out with the die from the Stitched Label Dies. I adhered it to the card base over the decorative strip with dimensionals. I finished it off with a Lovely Lipstick enamel dot.
On the inside of the card, I stamped the small lily bud from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set in Lovely Lipstick ink, after stamping off twice, on the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the small leaf cluster under it in Granny Apple Green ink after stamping off once. I added a strip of the Lily Impressions designer series paper and adhered it to the inside of the card.
