Lasting Lily Hostas

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!  I thought I'd share with you what I made from the inspiration that I shared with you ten days ago!  Did I surprise you?!?

After making several die cuts of the Lily dies from Shimmery White cardstock, the lilies were off stamped in So Saffron ink and washed over with a clean Aqua Painter.  Pear Pizzazz ink was used for the actual coloring of the leaves and the stalks (later cut down to fit the width of the bloom bases).  Once dry the lilies and stalks were adhered with liquid glue onto the embossed Crumb Cake layer.  The Crumb Cake layer was adhered to an Old Olive layer with liquid glue.  The Old Olive Linen Thread was wrapped these layers twice and tied off with a bow.  The Good Morning Magnolia sentiment - a perfect fit for the Lily sentiment die cut - was adhered with Mini Dimensionals.  These  layers were then adhered to the Soft Sea Foam card base (4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2") with liquid glue.  The stalks were trimmed with paper snips across the bottom edge of the card base from the inside.

The inside sentiment allows for plenty of room for writing to a special friend.

I hope that this card inspires you to see stamps and dies in more ways that just the initial thought.  Happy stamping and have a blessed day!
