Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table! I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
I pulled out my gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP (which, OBTW – you can get for FREE in the Sale-A-Bration flyer with a $50 purchase) and paired it up with (also FREE) the matching Lovely Lily stamp stamp set ($50 level reward) and Lily Pad Dies ($100 level reward). To those pretty images, I added a So Sentimental sentiment on a Stitched So Sweetly die cut label. Take a look-see:
Here’s our color palette!
And – since a good sketch challenge is a great way to get some inspiration, I borrowed mine from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches!
It also fits perfectly with the photo inspiration from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge!
I started with a mostly-Bermuda Bay piece of the Lily Impressions DSP that I embossed in the Stone 3D Embossing Folder (also FREE during Sale-A-Bration, bundled with the Power of Hope stamp set!) and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.
Using my Stitched Shapes dies, I cut two squares from another design in the pack and adhered them with Liquid Glue.
From a third design – mostly in Lovely Lipstick – I cut a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle and adhered it with Liquid Glue.
With an Oval Stitched Shapes die, I cut a Basic Black oval, embossed it in the Stone 3D Folder and popped it onto the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment, from the So Sentimental set, is stamped in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and cut with another label die from Stitched So Sweetly.
I cut two short lengths of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon and used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere them to the black oval. Then I popped the sentiment on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Then it was time to pull out the Lovely Lily stamp set and it’s matching Lily Pad Dies. HINT: the Lovely Lily stamp set is a photopolymer REVERSIBLE set. Which means that one side of the stamp is the detailed side – and you just have to flip it over on your block to stamp the “fill” image! Cool, huh? 🙂
I created a flower by stamping the small flower detailed image in Lovely Lipstick on some of the Lovely Lipstick Lily Impressions DSP and cutting it with the die in the Lily Pad Die set. I used a second die to cut a detailed flower from Lovely Lipstick card stock. Finally – I made a leaf by stamping the leaf in Granny Apple Green on Granny Apple Green card stock and cutting it out.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the three pieces together to form the flower!
Before adhering the flower to the card front – I wound some Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine around my hand several times and twisted it into a figure eight. Then I used Glue Dots to adhere it to the card front.
Then I used Liquid Glue and a couple of Black Dimensionals to adhere the flower over top.
A single Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dot finished off the card front!
On the inside, I first stamped the detailed flower image in Lovely Lipstick in the corner of a Whisper White panel. I cleaned the stamp and turned it over, inked the “solid” side in Lovely Lipstick and stamped it one time on my scrap paper. Then I stamped it into the flower image for the “fill”. I made a sticky note mask by cutting the flower die from the top of a sticky note – and laid it over top. Then I stamped the detailed lily pad image in full strength Granny Apple Green and the fill in stamped-off-once Granny Apple Green.
Phew – that was a LOT of words for 4 stamps, huh?? 🙂
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another flower and lily pad on the front…
And a bit more Lily Impressions DSP on the envelope flap!
Et Voila! The So Sentimental stamp set and bundled Stitched So Sweetly dies are a wonderful complement to the Lovely Lily images, Lily Pad die cut flowers and beautiful Lily Impressions DSP, don’t you think? And – it doesn’t hurt that all the Lily goodies are FREE during Sale-A-Bration! I hope you like!
