Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I have two cute cards that may bring the feel of a warm sunny day … and for me, a touch of sadness as I seeing a stamp set and dies retire. It’s the beautiful Lilypad Lake bundle, and I wanted to create that “lake” feel … I hope it takes you to the warmth and wonder of the lake.
I cut out my background in Whisper White with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (also on the retired list) … This will create the focal point, and was sponged with Balmy Blue. The sun was cut from the dies included in the bundle.
Our bird was stamped and then cut again with the coordinating dies. the water is also a die that we cut in Balmy Blue … before we attached it we covered that entire area on the sponged white with our Snail adhesive.
The bottom 1/3 of the piece was coated with the Snail (retiring but being replaced with something better!), then we laid the die cut (which I’m using as waves/water) onto the piece … once secure, we dipped it into the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (another item on the retirement list) and WOW!! We just pushed the glitter down onto the Snail to hold it better … It looks so cool.
Here are the core / retiring items that I have used on my cards today. You can click on any item to check it’s availability … Order through me and I will pay the tax on your order during April.

My second card, also a sparkling water image, is how I’d like to social distance. Actually … I should be saying goodbye to my retreat attendee’s instead of training at work, but I felt it was socially responsible to cancel my stamping retreat 😦 I am missing my ladies … and this view!
The water was simply stamped onto our card front, the boats were stamped die cut and colored. Our shimmery lake comes from the assistance of the “Wink of Stella”.
The beach was sponged on to make it look like sand … and the relaxing Adirondack Chair comes from the Seasonal Layers die set (again … retiring!) You should get a good feel of what you can create with this beautiful stamp set.
Thank you so much for joining me today. Make sure you come back each day this week as I will be featuring some very special cards and projects!
Have a beautiful day ~
