Gingham Easter Lilies

I had to wait to share this until after Easter so that the people receiving them wouldn’t see them ahead of time. Even though Easter is over, you can still make these cards…just change the sentiment to whatever you need. Even though some of these products are from Sale-a-Bration and are no longer available, I know several people that have these items. If you weren’t able to get your hands on them, you can always substitute with products you already have.

Gingham Easter Lilies
I have always loved the look of vellum on cards. So reminiscent of the cards I used to receive as a child from my mother. She knew how much I loved the crinkly sound of it. These cards use the soft, pretty colors from the Gingham Gala 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper Stack (available in the Occasions catalog) as my inspiration. I glued the lilies and sentiment onto the vellum, then placed adhesive onto the back of the vellum on the spots where the lilies and sentiments are. This way, when gluing the vellum layer onto the DSP, no adhesive shows through. I hope everyone liked the colors I chose for them!

Daffodil Delight Sympathy

It’s never enjoyable when you need a sympathy card. And, unfortunately, it’s been very difficult these past couple weeks as I’ve lost one family member and two church family members, along with a friend who also lost a close family member. I’ve had several cards to make, including this one that I made for my mother. She loves yellow and I thought this would bring a little love in her mailbox.

Lasting Sympathy in Mango

As promised, here’s another color scheme with the same basic layout as yesterday’s card. This stamp set is so pretty and I’m so glad I gave in and got the suite.  Hunter said she liked the Gorgeous Grape card from yesterday more, but I feel drawn to this pretty Mango Melody flowers.

Lasting Sympathy in Heather

The more I use the Floral Romance suite on pages 10-11 in the Occasions catalog, the more I adore it. It was made for Stampin’ Blends. I decided to use Vellum cardstock for the backdrop and wanted it to have a little texture, so I ran it through the Big Shot in the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder both directions – once vertically, then horizontally. I really like the aged look it gives. I’ll have another to show you tomorrow in a different color scheme.

Lasting Lily Wishing You Well

Tomorrow is the big day! All the items I’ve been sharing with you from the 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Brochure will be available to you! Today’s sneak peek is the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Lasting Lily. This 16 piece photopolymer set is part of Stampin’ Up!’s DistINKtive stamps line, which have the unique ability to apply color in differing degrees so one stamp shows many shades. They are so pretty! Most items in the Sale-a-Bration brochure are free with a $50 product purchase. But because this is a larger stamp set, you can earn it with a $100 purchase. It is so worth it – there are two different lilies with stems and leaves as well as 10 sentiments! I will be using this set for my Easter cards this year.
