Lovely Lilly Pad - Sale-a-bration Sunday

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card I made featuring the Lovely Lilly Pad stamp set, matching dies and a little bit of the matching designer series paper.  All of which are part of this years Sale-a-bration offerings.  This year Sale-a-bration starts on January 3, 2020 and there are a lot of great FREE items that you can earn starting right off the bat.  I wanted to take a little time today and showcase some of those items along with some items you can order to qualify for some freebies.  Here's a look at my card.

I picked my colors for my card from the Lilly Impressions Designer Series Paper: Impressionistic images in rich colors make the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper an excellent choice for elegant backgrounds and accents on handmade cards and scrapbook pages. I used the following colors for my card; Lovely Lipstick, Gorgeous Grape, and Granny Apple Green as the main colors for my card.
Stamp beautiful water lilies, lily pads, and more with the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set. This stamp set is a Reversibles** set, so stamps are two sided with an image on each side of the stamp for more creative options. Earn this stamp set FREE with a qualifying purchase January 3–March 31, 2020, during our Sale-A-Bration promotion! Ask your demonstrator about other coordinating products you can also get FREE. **Patent Pending.  I cut the lilies and the detailed die cut with the matching Lily Pad Dies which allows you to create custom die-cut water lilies, lily pads, and other fun paper cut outs for card making and scrapbooking.
My sentiment came from the I Say Hello Stamp Set from the 2019 Annual Catalog.  I thought it was just the perfect little sentiment for my bright and cheery card.  I did mat the designer series paper in Very Vanilla cardstock which mixed with the Whisper White are actually a fun little mix on the card.  I embossed the Granny Apple Green cardstock with the Beads and Baubles Embossing Folder.  I thought that the use of this embossing folder and the lilies was a perfect match.

Royal Peacock Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you may card using products from the Noble Peacock Suite.   Noble Peacock!  This suite has all kinds of shinny things in it.  It has foil, foiled specialty Designer Series paper by the way that's a great weight for 3d projects, rhinestones and a wonderful Peacock Stamp Set.  Here's a look at my card.

I started off with stamping the Peacock with Blueberry bushel and Pretty Peacock inks using the Stamparatus.  I stamped both colors at the same time.  I then added the second layer of the peacock image by stamping the second layer of feathers with versamark.  Then I added gold stampin emboss powder on top and heat set it.  This added just the right amount of texture to the peacock.  I then used my wink of stella to color the top part of the Peacock.  This gave the perfect watercolor look with a couple simple steps.  
I added the designer series paper to a piece of whisper white cardstock as a mat.  The I cut a piece of blueberry bushel and ran it through my embossing machine with the Beads and Baubles Embossing Folder.  I then added that to a piece of whisper white cardstock as a mat.  Since I did die cut the peacock out after stamping it using the matching dies I wanted to add a little white to the card and break up the Blueberry Bushel just a little.  
I heat embossed my sentiment on a piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock using versamark & gold embossing powder once heat set I punched it out using a 2" circle punch.  I added some of the Pretty Peacock Foil behind the sentiment.  I used the starburst punch to punch that out and mounted it with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added a knot made from the old olive/pretty peacock reversible ribbon with a mini glue dot.  To finish off my card I added some of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones around the card.  The rhinestones are currently on backorder but will be in stock soon.   
I hope that you like my Monochromatic card today.  If you need any of the supplies that I used you can pick them up in my online store 24/7 by clicking on the shop tab above or by clicking on the items in the Shopping List Below.  I look forward to working with you and being your demonstrator.
