Thanks a Bunch Lilies Day 2 Hop

Hi friends!  We're back for Day 2 of our Anni-VERVE-sary spotlights, where the Divas and our special guest, Monika Davis, are previewing the stamps and dies that will release this Saturday, August 30.  We're giving away a $50 gift code to the Verve store each day to a lucky commenter along the hop, so be sure to give the gals a shout out as you hop along!

I'm the first stop on the hop, so if you're just popping in, settle in for some fun!  :)


Today's set is a set called Framed Lilies, illustrated by Chaitali Narla.  It's got a little bit of everything... all occasion sentiments, a beautiful frame and floral images that can be colored traditionally or with a little two-step stamping.

For my card, I stamped the floral frame onto cream cardstock.  I then stamped the solid lilies in peach parfait to color them in.  I then took the stamp with just the two lilies and masked off one so I could stamp the other one in the corner.  Used the same technique to fill it in with peach parfait using the solid stamp, then sketched in a stem and leaf to match the stemmed image and colored with Copics.  The sentiment is stamped in black in the center of the frame and then I rounded the corners of the panel and matted with early espresso.  I stamped one more lily and cut it out by hand, then coated all four lilies with glossy glaze and set them aside to dry.

The soft sky panel is stamped tone on tone with the outlined lily duo stamp, then sponged with Walnut Stain and matted with espresso.  I accented with a ribbon using the Polka Dot Basics Collection, then glued my single lily to the center.  Two of the larger coffee colored sequins from the new Signature Sequin Collection accent the corner and I embellished them with itty bitty orange rhinestones.

That's it for me today!  Next up on the hop is... Teresa

  3. The Bow, stamping, coloring are beautiful of course but what impressed me the most are your color choices, the matting of the blue and sentiment panel and the edge inking and layout. Very inspirational. (Which means I am going to do a little bit of lifting, right?) Thanks so much. I loved this card. Did you need my address so you can send it to me? LOL. Just kidding.
