New to the 2018/19 annual catalogue is the Lilypad Lake bundle. A beautiful set with water, boats, heron and some lovely words and the co ordinating dies. It makes some stunning cards and we made two this morning at Coffee and a Card.
It was a pretty hectic morning with 7 people joining me, but as usual we had some fun and laughter and everyone went home with two lovely cards.
The first card used watercolour paper as the background, and after wetting the card three different colours using the ‘water’ stamp were stamped down covering all the card. I used Pumpkin Pie at the top, then Daffodil Delight and finally Night of Navy. This was then spritzed with water, removing any excess with kitchen paper. We then set this to one side to dry.
The heron was die cut in black card as was the reeds using the ‘water’ framelit. The water framelit then had its sides cut away, and the centre was snipped at random in half to give reeds.
The sun was die cut in Daffodil Delight and the flying birds were stamped onto the background in Memento. These were from the High Tide Stamp set. The card was assembled onto a black background before attaching to a whisper white card base.
The idea came from a card by Emma Goddard of Coastal Crafters.
The next card also used The Lilypad Lake bundle. But this time the card had a more nautical theme and perfect for the sailor in your family!
We started with Balmy Blue base and using the cloud design from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and Whisper White Ink, we sponged onto the Balmy BLue to give subtle clouded background.
The ‘sea’ was die cut in Pool Party, the ‘sun’ in Daffodil Delight, and the ‘yachts’ were stamped several times on Whisper White before colouring with a variety of pens (Stampin Blends and other) and then cut with the die.
The sentiment was from ‘Your Inspiring’ stampset, stamped in Balmy Blue on Whisper White card and die cut using one of the framelits from the bundle. The edges of the sentiment were ‘dabbed’ in the balmy blue ink to edge it.
