Simply Sunday ~ A Little Hello

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a cute card that may bring the feel of a warm sunny day … what the heck, they were threatening snow yesterday!!  Ha, Ha … left my shovels out, just in case!  My card share today features the beautiful Lillypad Lake bundle, and I wanted to create that “lake” feel … I hope it takes you to the warmth and wonder of the lake.

I started with the worn wood look with one of the designer papers from the Wood Textures DSP.  I cut out my background in Whisper White with the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies … it 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, then we laid the die cut (which I’m using as waves/water) onto the piece … then we dipped it into the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and WOW!!  We just pushed the glitter down onto the Snail to hold it better … It looks so cool.

I finished off my card with “a little hello” and some pearls which I colored with the Soft Suede stamping blends … it really looked nautical!  Most of the time when I make “glitter designer paper” … I use the Adhesive sheets, but this was such a small area and the Snail worked perfectly for this quick technique!!  Easy and looks great, you can’t get simpler than that.

Thank you for joining me at the lake today, I hope you enjoyed our little journey into nature.

Have a wonderful day ~

On the Road Again … Lillypad Lake

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m hitting the road and heading to OnStage – April 2019!! I’m so excited, especially after that nasty attack of snow we just had!! YIKES.  It’s pretty much gone around my area and my thoughts are for warmer days and sunny skies.  Today’s card will take you there … Lillypad Lake.  To me, there is nothing like sitting by the water at watching the sparkles as the sun dances across the water. On a boat wouldn’t be bad either!!

I began by sponging a little Balmy Blue onto the front of the card. We then stamped the water with Bermuda Bay … adding a little of the Balmy Blue into the water!  Using a clean sponge … dab a little Crumb Cake near the bottom to create your sand.  Now you have your sky, sand and water. Nice.

Next we stamped the sail boats, colored with the Night of Navy and Real Red Markers, and then they were die cut with the coordinating Lakeside Framelits Dies.  You can bundle these to save 10% on your purchase.  We finished off our day at the beach with the adirondack chair from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and my friend … Wink of Stella.  Stella gives us that sparkle that dances across the water … oh, I can’t wait for summer!! lol

Thank you for joining me today on my road trip to warmer days.

Come back and visit tomorrow, till then, enjoy your day.
