Lovely Lily Pad Catalog Card CASED

Hello and welcome to my blog; today we are going to be CASEing the 2020 Saleabration Brochure.  We are using one of the Lovely Lily Pad Cards as our inspiration today and we are going to change it up a little using the Tropical Chic Stamp Set and the 2018-2020 In Colors from the Annual Catalog.  These are the In Colors that will be leaving us soon, and I can say I will be very sad to see them go.  If you have any of the in colors currently now's the time to stock up on your favorite cardstock ink refills etc.  If you don't have them you need to get them, because once they are on the retiring list they will more than likely sale out quickly they usually do.   Enough of the jibber jabber here's a look at the card and the inspiration card.


I received the Lovely Lily Pad card from my friend Kay Cogbill when I took part in her team's CASE the Catalog Swap.  You have seen many of those cards shared here for my Case the Catalog Series each Sunday.  So I thought since Sale-A-Bration will be ending soon it would be a good thing to share taking inspiration from the catalog and Kay's card and doing a little Copy And Selectively Editing.  So I used her card from the Catalog Swap as my jumping off point.


So for my version of Kay's card I used the Tropical Chic stamp set and matching Tropical Dies to stamp and cut out the palm leaves and tropical leaves from that set.  I used Call Me Clover ink to stamp all three on to whisper white cardstock.  I stamped each leaves in either 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation stamping to create the three different ink shades you see here.  On the card that Kay made you can see the ombre look in the cardstock that was used; I picked the generational stamping as my ombre element.  I did keep the vellum circle behind the elements but I went a little larger then the inspiration piece.


I then used the Lily Pad Dies and cut out my elements using scraps of the 2018-2020 In Colors.  I cut each of the same die in Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, and Blueberry Bushel.  Each of these were glued to my card front in the same way as the inspiration card.  Slightly off setting them to one side each time, and alternating how they went with the point up or down.  I then added the sentiment.  I picked the Congratulations from Lily Pad Lake and punched it out using the Classic Label punch.  I added this to the leaves with dimensionals and then added a bow from the Lovely Lipstick ribbon with a mini glue dot.  My entire card front was then added to a side folding thick whisper white card base.

Lily Impressions DSP Card - Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a fun way to make a card using Designer Series Paper as the card base.  I picked the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper that's one of the Sale-A-Bration offering this year.  I also used the Lovely Lily Stamp Set and the matching Lily Pad Dies both of which are also Sale-A-Bration items and can all be earned for free with qualifying orders.  During the video I also share how to get a four color blend using two sets of Stampin' Blends.  Doing a four color blend is a little more advance coloring technique and it gives a more realistic coloring look.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out my card design by cutting my designer series paper down to the correct size.  It's cut to 4 1/4 x 12, and scored at 1" & 5 1/2".  Once it was scored I then used my bone folder and burnished each score line.  The 1" score line gets folded back to the front so that you can see both sides of the paper on the front of the card.  This is one of the reasons I love Designer Series Paper cards, because you don't have to decided which side of the paper you want to see, you actually get to see them both.  


One thing depending on the designer series paper that you pick make sure that you have the paper turned in the right direction.  For this one it really isn't noticeable that I had it flipped upside down.  It still worked out just fine.  To decorate the front of the card a little I used both a 1/2" x 4 1/4 piece of Gorgeous Grape Cardstock for the this card as you will see in the video to add a little stability and to add just a little more color.  But, one the first card I used a piece of the Lovely Lipstick 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon instead.  I also used the detailed die from the set and cut out a piece of Green foil from the Noble Peacock Foil pack.  I added this to the center of the card front with a little liquid glue behind.  


Once I had the foil die cut a large stitched whisper white circle and scalloped circle to layer behind.  I stamped the lily and lily pad from the stamp set twice in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  Once the ink dried a little bit I started the coloring process.  I started out with Dark Lovely Lipstick in the deepest shadow areas of each petal.  I worked one petal at a time so that I could get a good blend.  Next I moved the Light Lovely Lipstick and blended the dark out; next I moved to Dark Flirty Flamingo and then to Light Flirty Flamingo.  When blending flowers I do a very light handed flicking motion.  I also go in the direction of the flowers petals.  For the Lily pad since they are rounded I color in a circular motion.  This coloring method makes a round object appear rounded.  Once all the coloring was completed I used the matching die and cut everything out.  I added the colored images to the stitched circles with liquid glue and stampin' dimensionals.  


Once everything was added to the front of the card I stamped the inside and colored the lily on the inside and added a sentiment.  For the card in the video I choose not to add anything to the inside yet because I wasn't sure what occasion I may want to use the card.  I also added some of the designer series paper to the flap of the envelope.  This way I have a perfectly coordinated card and envelope that's ready to go.
