Today I’m sharing with you some cards made using the Lovely Lily Pad reversible photopolymer stamp set and coordinating die cuts from the Sale-A-Bration flyer. These stamps and die cuts are so great! There are so many different looks you can achieve using these products. I decided to keep it fairly simple and use just the lily images with a bit of splatter in the background and sequins dotted around.
I think the largest lily on the lily pad is probably my favorite. The way the reversible stamps work lends the image a very “rough” artistic element, which I quite enjoy. I used Flirty Flamingo, Mint Macaron, and Pineapple Punch on these cards, because I thought those colors coordinated pretty well with the sequins I used.
I first stamped the solid image from the smooth side of the photopolymer stamp in my main color. Then using Stazon Jet Black ink, I flipped the stamp over and stamped the textured side on top of the solid image to get the outlined effect. I really like how these stamps lay down the detail on top of the color. It really makes the colors stand out and pop!
I wasn’t sure if I wanted to put all three lily’s on to one card, but in the end I decided to make three separate cards as part of a “pack”. Before putting my stamped images down on my card base, I took an aqua painter and dipped it into a pool of Pineapple Punch ink, then using the cap of the aqua painter, I flicked the brush tip towards the paper to get the splotches. I used the same technique with a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush in Clear for a bit of extra sparkle.
I glued down the sequins by taking some Multipurpose Liquid Glue and dotting it around the main image. Then using my Take Your Pick Tool and the putty tip, I picked up some of the sequins and placed them down onto the glue spots and held them in place for a moment so they would adhere.
Once all of my elements were in place, the cards looked a little too bare for me, so I decided to add some sentiments from the Painted Poppies Suite of products in the Stazon. I really love how these sentiments pop against the colorful elements on these cards. Be sure to pick up your Sale-A-Bration goodies while you can! Once these beautiful stamps and coordinating dies run out of supply, they are gone forever! Ask your demonstrator for more details, and if you don’t already have one, I would be happy to help!
