I hope your week has been filled with good things. If you are back at work after the Christmas break – aren’t you glad it’s the weekend? For those of us on holidays, isn’t it good to have that time to just chill out and enjoy some time with the family and some much needed relaxation time. I’ve been enjoying late nights watching movies and also catching up with friends, shopping days and some day activities with my family and of course the much loved sleep ins.

This stamp set has got these lovely lilies and sentiments suitable for thank you, get well, sympathy and others. The beauty of the lily stamp is that it’s one stamp but it gives the lovely 3 dimensional look to the flower.
Attach a layer of Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper onto Night of Navy Cardstock. Stamp the lily in So Saffron and the stem in Lemon Lime Twist.Stamp the sentiment over the image and then attach the panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This is a very quick card to create. The lily is just lovely on it’s own and you could do a variety of these in different colours.
Using the small blotchy stamp in the same set to add a border around the Whisper White panel with Cajun Craze which has been stamped off twice. Stamp the lily in So Saffron first. Then ink around the edges of the stamp in Cajun Craze and stamp over the first image. This will give you a two-tone effect. Do the same with your stem and leaf using Lemon Lime Twist and Mossy Meadow.
Add extra dimension by stamping the two-tone lily and stem on another piece of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cutting them. Then attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Cut the circular die from the Beautiful Layers set. Cut this in half and trim off a bit of the middle section to create a smaller image. Attach this to the back of your sentiment which has been die cut. I loved the lacy feel this added to the card.
