Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets in Grace’s Garden

Well.  Here we are. Friday!  And – for some of you – today’s a holiday!  Cuz tomorrow we celebrate the birth of our nation!  I hope everyone has some plans – we’re going to TRY to go to our friend’s on Sunday for some social-distanced socializing!  Fingers crossed we get our taxes done by Sunday so we can make that happen!  I feel the need for a hamburger on the grill with friends!  And deviled eggs!  Yum!  And I’ve been collecting some dessert recipes that I’m itching to make when I have more-than-one-mouth to feed!

Speaking of taxes (look back a few sentences – I DID mention taxes!) – I am SO sorry that I wasn’t able to get together with y’all yesterday!  But – the COVID-push-back is almost over and…yep.  The taxman cometh!  So…gots to do what we gots to do!

My friend Jan – also one of the newest members of my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team! – came over on Wednesday and we made the card that I was going to make for you yesterday.  In fact, she was going to come over and sit in!  Maybe next week!

The card is a pet-sympathy card – using the Grace’s Garden stamp set and coordinating Garden Gateway Dies, plus the Pampered Pets bundle and a perfect sentiment from Peaceful Moments.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Remember Peaceful Painted Poppies Thank You

Hey y’all – happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is going well!  We went out to do a little shopping yesterday – all masked up and sanitized.   We got needed stuff, but…it’s exhausting.  Guess I’m out of shopping-shape! 🙁 I’m going back to my quiet social isolation.  It’s much more relaxing! 🙂

My card today is a thank you – using the wunnermus Peaceful Moments bundle with a little help from the Painted Poppies stamp set and Peaceful Poppies DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout – and really the colors and flowers and…okay – most of it! – was inspired by the sketch and photo at this week’s FUSION challenge.

And I played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge! I went down the middle and right column – but…one could probably make the case for a full-card BINGO!!

I started with a piece of the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP and cut the largest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die from the middle.  I matted the remaining paper on a Basic Black panel.  Then I popped the die cut piece back in place using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used SNAIL to adhere a length of Poppy Parade 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon across the panel. I used two more shorter pieces and adhered them in a sort-of-remembrance-ribbon-shape with Glue Dots.

I stamped a Peaceful Moments sentiment in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and cut it with the next to smallest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I used the Poppy Moments Dies to cut a large, solid flower from a piece of Poppy Parade Peaceful Poppies DSP.  Using the small splotch stamp in the Painted Poppies stamp set, I stamped around the flower with Poppy Parade ink.  I cut the detailed flower – and two flower centers – from Basic Black cardstock.

I adhered the detailed flower die cut to the solid flower, using Liquid Glue on just the middle of the flower, and gently curled the petals.

 

Then I adhered the larger flower center with Liquid Glue and popped the smaller center on with a Black Stampin’ Dimensional.

I popped the flower on with more Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the poppies image from Painted Poppies in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the flowers with my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend Combo pack.  Colored some in Light and some in Dark.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Painted Poppies on the front…

…and more of the Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How much do you love the Peaceful Poppies DSP?  It’s just stunning, isn’t it??!  Well – it will be GONE soon!  It’s not carrying over –  and it’s only available while supplies last, so…get some (more!) now!   Fortunately – the Peaceful Moments and Painted Poppies bundles are carrying over so…..whew!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Painted Poppies Gate Fold Card with Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday!!  Hope you’ve had a good week – and are looking forward to the weekend! Which I hope will be different in SOME way from the week!  Oh – hey!  You could spend part of your day tomorrow with us on our Ornate Garden FB Live Event!  Check below for the deets and a link to join the event page!!  It’ll be fun – I promise!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

I used the wunnermus goodies from the Peaceful Poppies Suite – the DSP and both the Peaceful Moments bundle (the Poppy Moments Dies are BACK!!) and the Painted Poppies stamp set to make this fun Gate-Fold Card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the CAS Colours & Sketches sketch challenge.

And the pretty color palette is from the Inspire. Create. Challenge.

And it works great with the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge,too!  Right down the left column!

The gate fold is really easy.  I started with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Pool Party and – along the long edge – used my Simply Scored board to score at 2 1/4″ and again at 6 1/2″.

I matted two pieces of Peaceful Poppies DSP on Blackberry Bliss card stock and adhered them to the two gates with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a 1″ x 12″ strip of the Peaceful Poppies DSP around the card, securing it in the middle with Liquid Glue – not TOO snugly, okay?

The Peaceful Moments sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade on an angled Whisper White rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.  Then I adhered it to the belly band with Liquid Glue.

I cut two solid flowers from a piece of Poppy Parade paper in the Peaceful Poppies DSP.  Using the splotches image in the Painted Poppies set, I added Poppy Parade texture (aka splotches!) to each flower.  Then I adhered a detailed flower die cut in Basic Black to each one (only using Liquid Glue in the middle of the detailed die cuts – letting the edges remain loose).


I cut a few flower centers from Black Foil and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

With the leaf die in the Poppy Moments, I cut three Old Olive leaves.  With the berries die in Frosted Bouquet, I cut three Blackberry Bliss berries.  These are adhered to the sentiment panel with Liquid Glue.

I lightly curled the edges of the larger flower and used Liquid Glue in the middle to adhere it over the leaves.  Then I tucked the smaller flower up under the edge, adhering it with Liquid Glue.  And that was it for the card front and belly band!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Poppy Parade on a Whisper White panel. In the corner, I added the smaller flower image from Painted Poppies in Tuxedo Black, then stamped the large fill image in stamped-off-once Poppy Parade.  I added a few Poppy Parade splotches for some texture.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Painted Poppies flower on the front…

…and a little more Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!!  This Peaceful Moments stamp set is so wonderful – and I am really glad that the bundled Poppy Moments Dies are back in stock and available to you!  Paired with the Painted Poppies images and gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP – it’s just a WOW combination!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Sometimes there’s doubt about the parentage of animals.

Do they look and act more like their mother?  Or their father?

Well – with Finn, there is little doubt.

He is EXACTLY like his father.

No – not THAT father (although…yea.  They’re pretty similar!!)

The OTHER one.

I am frequently complaining to Wayne that he can – with no aid from tools of any sort – not a compass, nor a laser tape measure, nay – not even survey equipment – park a vehicle (or 3) right. Smack. In the middle of any road – anywhere.

And his son (my sweet Finn-y) – apparently inherited the trait.

Case in point.

 

He’s got the entire kitchen floor.  Or – gosh – the entire HOUSE!

But no.

With the precision of a NASA engineer…with his trusty slide rule…he places himself in the “aisle”.

Right. Smack. Dead. Center.

So I get to step over him – or go around the island (the looooong way!)

As his father looks on proudly!

That’s-ma BOY!!

Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Poppies for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!

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!

When I saw the color palette for the challenge this week, I thought of the Peaceful Poppies DSP right away.  And then, I saw a cool sketch challenge and…boom!  So Sentimental and the awesome bundled Stitched So Sweetly Dies came off the shelf.  Take a look-see:

Here’s our color challenge.

And this is the sketch that gave me the “boom!” moment.  It’s from the Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started with a design in the Peaceful Poppies DSP and matted it on Old Olive for the card front.

I wrapped some of the Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack (get the whole suite on 1 April 2020!!) twice around the card front – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the flowers from the Painted Poppies stamp set in stamped-off-twice Poppy Parade on a piece of Poppy Parade paper from the Peaceful Poppies DSP.

Again with the Stamparatus, I stamped the So Sentimental sentiment in Tuxedo Black – stamping the image multiuple times to get it good and dark.

Then I cut the image/sentiment with the next-to-largest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.  I also cut the same size from an Old Olive piece of the DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere both die cuts to the card front – keeping the sentiment panel straight and angling the “mat” die cut.

I pulled out the Peaceful Poppies Elements and chose a couple of vellum flowers and some vellum leaves.  Using Glue Dots (under the embossed portions of the velum) – I adhered the flowers.  Then I used little dabs of Liquid Glue to tuck the leaves in under the flowers.

I tied a double-loop simple bow from the Old Olive Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Finally, I added some Peaceful Poppies Sequins with little dabs of Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White, using the Stamparatus.  Over the top, in stamped-off-twice Poppy Parade – I added those pretty poppies again!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Blackberry Bliss card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Painted Poppies on the front…

…and some more of the Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love it when several sets and bundles can come together as well as the So Sentimental bundle, Painted Poppies and Peaceful Moments sets have done in this card.  The Peaceful Poppies DSP is the perfect tie-er-together-er, don’t you think?!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Parisian Poppies Double Flip Fun Fold!

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  Another week – done!   Did it feel shorter (and hence…better!) with the Monday holiday??

If you were able to join me for my YouTube Live Video yesterday –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I saw this Double Flip-Fold card on France Martin’s blog and thought it was so fun and easy….which it totally is!  I decided to use the Peaceful Moments Bundle and Painted Poppy stamp set – combined with gorgeous Parisian Blossom Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

The front of the card was already close to the FUSION sketch challenge this week – I simply modified the position of the flip portion (sliding it to the rigth instead of centered like a “normal” double-flip).  That gave me more room to collagify!

I started with the “first” card base – Basic Black at 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ and scored and folded it at 5 1/2″.  The “Flip” is Basic Black, 3″ x 8 1/2″, scored and folded at 4 1/4″.

I used the gorgeous Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the front short panel of the first card base and on the inside back – both pieces are matted on Pool Party and adhered with Liquid Glue.

On the flip card base, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiments from Peaceful Moments in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on two Whisper White panels.  On the inside panel, I also stamped two of the flowers from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Basic Gray – then I colored them with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo.   I matted each on Pool Party and adhered them inside the smaller flip card base.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the small card inside the larger card base.

For my collage, I used multiple dies from the Poppy Moments Die set to cut my flower and a bevy of leaf parts.  The flower has a solid piece of Petal Pink (I used a Sponge Dauber to ink the edges with Petal Pink ink) then I adhered a Basic Gray detailed flower with Liquid Glue. I cut a large flower center from Champagne Foil and adhered it with Liquid Glue, then I popped a smaller Black Foil center on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the leaves, I cut solid and detailed leaves in Pool Party and Champagne Foil, and also in Pool Party vellum from the So Very Vellum Specialty DSP (coming on 3 March in the second Sale-A-Bration Release!).  I glued the leaf parts together and then…started doing my dry-fit on the front of the card (which is the front of the smaller flip card base!

When I was happy – I took a picture with my phone…

Then I picked up the flower and took a second picture.

I adhered all the leaves with Liquid Glue.

Using Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine, I made a loose double-loop figure-eight (I show this in the video!) and stuck it in the middle of the leaves with a couple of Glue Dots.  Then I popped the flower over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewel – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Painted Poppies flower in Basic Gray and Petal Pink on the front…

…and a little more Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Double-Flip Fun Fold is crazy easy so I hope you’ll try it soon!  I also wanted you to see how well the Peaceful Moments and Painted Poppies Bundles work with other papers like this Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP!  The Peaceful Poppies DSP is gorgeous but…don’t be afraid to mix-and-match!  I hope you like! 🙂

On Wednesday, we picked up a new toilet.

Yes – the life of a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is glamourous, indeed.

We’ve needed a new toilet for a minute – in our second bathroom.

By minute, I mean…well.  A MINUTE!

FINALLY broke down and paid for a “special order” toilet.  Meaning – we wanted it in bone.  Seriously?!?  BONE is a “special order”?!?

Why yes.  Yes it is.

Anywho – we finally got it.

So the menfolk put it in on Wednesday evening.

Gettin’ that old one out’s gonna be a booger, Dad.  You’re prolly gonna get wet!

Wiggle it, Dad – you gotta get it down on that wax thingy!

Doya need a tool or anything??  I’m a little thirsty…..how much longer were ya thinkin’??

Hmmm.  Those’r some complicated directions.  Why we reading directions??  We MEN!  Don’t need no stinkin’ directions!

Mary’s note:  that last picture is probably Pulitzer worthy.  Rare sighting of y-chromosomes reading instructions!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppy Moments Sympathy Card

Happy Happy Hawwmp day, y’all!  We’re here in the south with just a “little rain” this week – LOL.  Which is to say – we’re soaking here.  I actually put a rain jacket on this morning to go out to the barn.  Yes – it’s been THAT wet today.  Bleh!

I took a meander thru my card stash this week and realized that I don’t have any sympathy cards.  We don’t like it, but…we all know that the need for a sympathy card is always looming, right?  I decided that I’d best get busy.  Which is exactly what I did today, using the Peaceful Moments stamp set and just a splash of color from a little Peaceful Poppies DSP.  Take a look-see:

I love this layout and it came from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge!  I’m so glad this challenge was re-invigorated by Julee Tilman!  🙂

I started by cutting the second-to-largest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Die Set from a Whisper White panel.  I used the same die to cut a Basic Black rectangle.  Then I put the black rectangle in the hole in the white panel – and ran the whole thing thru my die cutting machine in the Stone 3D Embossing Folder (which…comes with the Power Of Hope stamp set as a $100 reward from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration First Release!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Whisper White Panel to a Basic Black met – then adhered the black die cut into the negative space.

I cut the same size rectangle from a piece of the Peaceful Poppies DSP and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out my Peaceful Poppies Elements and, on a black circle die cut, stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Poppies in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.

I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere another die cut from Peaceful Poppies Elements – the scalloped-edge strip – across the card front.  Then I popped the circle sentiment on with Dimensionals as well.  And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment in Tuxedo Black to a Whisper White panel.  On the bottom, I adhered another Peaceful Poppy Element die cut with Liquid Glue.  I also used Liquid Glue to adhere a single Peaceful Poppy Sequin by the sentiment.  With my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker – I carefully filled in the little hole in the middle of the adhered sequin! 😉

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Poppy Parade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Peaceful Poppy Element die cut on the front…

…and a little more Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I do so love this gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP, don’t you?  The colors are simply stunning and they can do ALL the work for you!  Add in the sentiments with their beautiful fonts from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and…boom!!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Just Us Girls Guest Designer Peaceful Nature’s Positive Thoughts

Good morning, peeps!  Well – today is the last week in my  “term” as a Guest Designer at the Just Us Girls Challenge! Which is why I’m in your Inbox so early!  Next Saturday we’ll be back on our normal posting schedule.  I’ve really enjoyed working with the fun folks at Just Us Girls – and am really honored that they asked me!

This week is a theme challenge – with butterflies taking a front-row-seat.  So – I pulled out the Positive Thoughts stamp set with the matching Nature’s Thoughts Dies (which YOU’LL be able to get on 4 Feb!).  I used a couple of sentiments from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, too.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Just Us Girls Guest Designer – Peaceful Painted Poppies Birthday Card

Good morning, my peeps!  I’m back early on a Saturday morning for week-two as a Guest Designer at the Just Us Girls Challenge!

When I saw our challenge, I took it as a clear sign that it was time for a good ole collage card.  So, I decided this would be a good week to go all-in with the Painted Poppies and Peaceful Moments bundles.  And I do mean…ALL in!  Take a look-see:

And – here’s the challenge we’re bringing you this week!

I hope my card will inspire you to get crafty and come on over to play with the Just Us Girls challenge!  Looking forward to seeing what you create!

I also used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches for some inspiration!

I started with some of the pretty striped paper from the Painted Poppies DSP and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.  I used a different – solid green – pattern for the vertical stripe – also matted on Basic Black and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I matted a piece of Whisper White on Basic Black and added the sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Poppy Parade ink.  Then I adhered the panel onto the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next, it was time to “grow” some flowers!  First, I used the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo all over a piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock.  Then I cut two solid flowers from the stamped card stock using the Poppy Moments Dies (which is bundled with the Peaceful Moments stamp set).  I cut two outline flowers from Poppy Parade and adhered them to their flowers with Liquid Glue.

I cut several solid leaf shapes from Old Olive vellum – found in the Perennial Essence Vellum Pack (annual catalog).  The detail leaves are cut in Mossy Meadow.  I again used Liquid Glue to adhere all the pieces together.

I cut a few rosebuds from the stamped Flirty Flamingo and their stems from some of the dark green paper in the Painted Poppies DSP (same paper that I used on the vertical strip).

With all the pieces and parts built – it was time to build the collage.  So…I laid it all out…

When I was happy with it I took the photo (above), then I picked up the “top” flower – and took another picture.

From there, I assembled the collage using Liquid Glue.  I adhered the bow – which is two lengths of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine – with a Glue Dot.

Then I added the final flower with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Basic Black flower centers (cut with the dies in the Poppy Moments Dies) with Liquid Glue and some gold sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequin Assortment and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second Peaceful Moments sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Whisper White panel.  I added the Painted Poppies two-step flower images in Poppy Parade and Flirty Flamingo.  A single gold Peaceful Poppies Sequin finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Poppy Parade card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Painted Poppies flowers on the front…

…and more of the Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Okay, y’all – how gorgeous is this double-bundle Suite?!  The colors and the dies and and and…. simply stunning!  Painted Poppies – with its Painted Labels dies – provide the images and the Peaceful Moments set with its Poppy Moments Dies adds sentiments and a plethora of die-cut florals for all your projects!  I hope you like!

So – PSA!  I’ll be live tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’re going to make a fun little card using the new Beautifully Braided bundle.  Take a sneaky peek!

Hope you’ll be able to join me!  🙂

Tonight.  Right here.  7pm Eastern!

Finn Fan Fix


On Fridays – a thing happens that both Finn and I LOVE.

For very different reasons.

Finn – because of the treats.

Me?  Because of the clean, fresh-smelling house that happened without my help! 🙂

Yep – Friday is….Miss Sonya-Day!

And – Finn absolutely knows -“Miss Sonya is here”.  He flies to the house from wherever we are to say hello and get the treats she always brings!  🙂

The downside – for him – is that he (I) has to pick up his toys on Friday morning, where they have to stay until she’s done mid-afternoon.

They go in the “toy bed” and he patiently-ish waits until it’s okay to start pulling them back out!

He peruses them all.  Paws at them a bit – to seperate them and remind himself of how many he has (it’s a lot!).

Then – with one last pass – he picks THE one that will do for a few minutes.

Looks like Mr. Zombie made the cut today!

Won’t be a minute – they’ll all be strewn hither and yon across the living room.

Exactly.  Like.  A.  Toddler. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad Peaceful Moments Sneak Peek

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!

So…check out my Special Bundle #3 – The Flower-dy Bundle.  You’ll get the Painted Poppies Bundle and the Peaceful Moments bundle – plus even more great goodies!  AND – you’ll be able to select three $50 level SAB gifts OR one $50 and one $100 level gift.  You could pick the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and Lily Pad Dies!   😉
