Lovely Lily Pad Sympathy Card

Today’s card is made with the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set. The real stars of this card are the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper and the Lily Pad dies. These products can be found in the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration catalog which runs through March 31,2020. To quote the catalog, this DSP is full of impressionistic images in rich colors.

Card recipe:

* Cut a piece of thick Whisper White cardstock at 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” and score at 4-1/4”.

* Cut a piece of Lily Impressions DSP at 5-1/4” x 4”.

* Use the Lily Pad dies to cut the “petals”. I used Poppy Parade cardstock and went over the top with Wink of Stella to give those flowers a little sparkle. Once that is dry, match up your images and adhere to the DSP. I always put a dot of glue on a scrap of paper and use a toothpick to apply the glue to the small areas.

*While you have the Poppy Parade out, punch out a piece using the Timeless Label punch. Add a touch of Wink of Stella to that punched out piece.

* Wrap a strip of Whisper White 1/4” Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the DSP and adhere to the back (this is the one time I always use snail). This ribbon looks beautiful in it’s soft white, but can also be dyed using your Stampin’ Blends! (Page 25 of the mini catalog).

* Stamp your sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock (the regular kind), punch that sentiment out using the Timeless Label punch and adhere that to the Poppy Parade punched out cardstock.

Now—put the card together. Adhere the DSP to the card base, pop your sentiment up on dimensionals, and add the bling of your choice. I used the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card. If you are interested in joining the Stampin’ Up! Team, I am happy to assist you. If you would like any of these products, please click on “Shop Now”.

Colleen Light Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and DIY Crafter I love all paper crafting and I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! Independent demonstrator since 2018. Not only do I love the Stampin’ Up products but I am also working towards my quilling accreditation through the Quilling Guild. You will see some of those cards pop up every now and then. I started this latest paper crafting hobby of mine following an accident. I use it as my own form of occupational therapy (we nurses can get creative with our therapies.. haha). What I found was a great admiration for my fellow creative demonstrators and a great sense of community. I especially enjoy sending out my hand-crafted cards. It makes me happy when people tell me they save the cards!! If you are in the United States, I would love to be your demonstrator or have you as a member of my team. Check out the details of becoming a demonstrator at my on-line store (the discounts are definitely helpful). Feel free to drop me a comment! I look forward to working with you.
