Sweet Music and Lilies

Good afternoon everyone, how are you all ?  well and happy I hope but maybe a little cold.  It is very cold here today, maybe snow is on its way, I do hope not lols.  A night by the television and the log fire is on the cards for us tonight, snug and warm.

Today's card is a reminder of the warmer weather we had earlier this year, although it now seems a long time ago lols.  I made this card using one of Imagination Craft's decoupage stamps, Lilies which I think is very pretty.   I decided not to decoupage this one and just did a stamped card.   I hope you think it looks ok,   I was quite pleased with the result, even if I say so myself !   OK let's  begin.   Below is a picture of the card we are going to make today.

Make a base card from cream cardstock.   Cut a piece of green card slightly smaller than the cream card and punch all four corners using the EK Success Corner Punch.   Matt this onto the cream base card using d.s.s.tape.   Cut another piece of cream card smaller than the green and again, punch all four corners with the corner punch.
Take a piece of white card snaller than the cream and colour it using Distress Inks and blending tool by Ranger.   Onto the centre of this card, stamp the main image of the lilies using a Versamark Pad and heat emboss using gold embossing powder and a heat gun

Colour with mica powders and brush using water.   Stamp around the edges of the stamped design using the swirl stamp from the set, using the Green Encore Metallic Stamp Pad.

Fix this panel into the corners of the cream card and fix to the base card.   That's it finished folks, hope you like this one.   Take care of yourselves until I blog again.   Thank you for visiting.

                                                                Love and Rainbows,

                                                                  Hugs Jennifer xx

    1. Hello Linda thank you, it is a lovely stamp. That is so...strange that you have just used the very same stamp, great minds think alike lols !!! Hugs Jennifer xx

  3. Lilies are my favourite flower and I love this stamp. I bought it the other day and have yet to use it. Love the way you have coloured this with Mica.

    1. Hello Mags, thank you very much. The mica powders give a lovely delicate sheen, just like silk, I love them and you use so...little, they seem to last forever ! Hugs Jennifer xx
