Good morning! Okay. So – after my video on Saturday night – someone left a comment that made me sort of take a step back.
I’d mentioned that it was the “last FB live of the year”. Well….it was the last FB Live of the DECADE. Last WEEKEND of the DECADE.
This. Is. The. Last. Monday. Of the 2010’s! 🙂 So…enjoy it!
My card for today is comprised of so many FREE goodies…I can’t believe it! Y’all know that Sale-A-Bration is coming up – and three of the five “non-staple” Stampin’ Up! products are IN the Sale-A-Bration flyer! We’ve got the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set (Free at the $50 level), the matching Lily Pad Dies (Free at the $100 level), the coordinating Lily Impressions DSP ($50 level) and the Metallic Baker’s Twine and Sequins Combo Pack ($50 level)! Yikes! Now – I pulled a couple of sentiments from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (in the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog). Take a look-see:
The layout for this one was inspired by the challenge sketch over at Inspire. Create.
I started with some of the gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP for the card front.
Then I started making lily pads and flowers! The Lovely Lily Pad stamp set is a “reversible” set. So – ink and stamp the “detailed” side – clean it off and flip it over on the block to stamp the fill in solid image!
So – that’s what I did! I stamped the large flower in Grapefruit Grove – then flipped the image and stamped the fill in stamped-off-once Grapefruit Grove.
I did the same thing with the smaller flowers – in Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo.
I cut the flowers out with their Lily Pad Dies. Then I cut some solid leaves from Granny Apple Green and Vellum Card Stock – as well as a few flowers from Vellum.
The last element is a Garden Green Lily Pad – stamped and cut just like the flowers.
I didn’t start this as a collage card – but…it ended up that way! I layered all the pieces onto the card front – starting with the actual Lily Pad. I made sure to let some parts “fall” off the edge – so I could trim them later for the sketch!
When I got to the large flower – I first tied a big ole loose bow with two pieces of So Saffron Baker’s Twine from the SAB Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack – and adhered it with a dot of Liquid Glue.
Then I popped the large flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
At that point, I trimmed the excess off the side with my Paper Trimmer and matted the panel on Grapefruit Grove.
The sentiment, from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (part of the Peaceful Poppies Suite), is stamped in Melon Mambo on Grapefruit Grove card stock. I fussy cut the sentiment and adhered it with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A few So Saffron sequins from the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Combo Pack adhered with Liquid Glue finished off the card front.
On the inside, I stamped a second Peaceful Moments sentiment in Melon Mambo on Whisper White. Over the top, I added the large Lovely Lily Pad flower in Grapefruit Grove. I added a tiny So Saffron sequin next to the sentiment.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another of the Grapefruit Grove Lovely Lily Pad flowers on the front…
…and more of that gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Wow! I love this whole group of Lily Pad goodies – from the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set to the gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP. And – it’s all FREE! Get the Peaceful Moments stamp set – with its wonderful sentiments – as the perfect complement! I hope you like!

Sunday is garbage day.
Well – technically, it’s Monday. But we pull the can down to the road on Sunday evening!
So – it’s all-hands-on-deck. We make sure we’ve picked up all the garbage – and the danged spam-snail-mail.
You know…those silly flyers that fill the mailbox?
Even Finn helps!
Good boy! Now….bring it here so I can put it in the garbage!
Well – half way, right?? 😉
