Today’s card features three of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items you can earn with qualifying orders. They are the first three items in my Product List below, which gives you more details.
Isn’t this lily gorgeous? The rich colors are so pretty in the Lily Impressions Designer Paper. The background for the lily is Pretty Peacock, the leaves are Garden Green, and the flower is Melon Mambo. Pictured, are the Lily Pad Dies I used for cutting.
The card base is Bermuda Bay, topped with Whisper White, that I embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.
Prior to embossing, I used a Lovely Lily Pad stamp with Bermuda Bay ink to make the waves. I also stamped “sending prayers” from Itty Bitty Greetings.
For a touch of shine, I added three dots of Noble Peacock Foil.
My layout is from CAS(E) this sketch.
I was so happy to find the “doodad” strip in the Lily Pad Dies!
I appreciate you visiting today. If you look at my Product List, you’ll notice the price of the first three items is $0.00. That’s because they are Sale-A-Bration items, and FREE with a qualifying order of $50.00 or $100.00.
Keep in mind, if you use my February Host Code (U463KNM3) with a minimum order of $50.00, I will send you the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder in March.
Thank you, and have a wonderful day!
The Beautiful Moments Stamp Set has wonderful, sketched, images for a focal point. They can be colored, or simply stamped, as shown here.
I stamped the backward lady in Old Olive Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and layered her on Pear Pizzazz Cardstock, giving a 1/16″ border. The floral paper is Best Dressed Designer Paper, trimmed to 2″ X 5 1/4″.
After gluing the Best Dressed DSP to Whisper White Cardstock, I embossed it with the Scripty Embossing Folder. Before gluing this 4″ X 5 1/4″ layer to a Thick Whisper White card base, I wrapped Mossy Meadow Linen Thread around it.
The sentiment, “Thinking of You,” is also from the Beautiful Moments Stamp set, stamped in Old Olive Ink.
To complete the card, I frayed the ends of the Linen Thread, and added three tiny Pearls.
The layout is from Freshly Made Sketches.

How do you like my Patent Leather Painted Poppies?
Patent Leather Poppies
I’m calling the poppies “patent leather,” because I cut the “frames” from Black Foil that looks just like patent leather. I used the die from the Poppy Moments die set for cutting, which made it very easy to do.
I wanted the sentiment to be shiny like the “frames,” so I used VersaMark and Black Embossing Powder. “Hello” (Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set) was stamped on Whisper White Cardstock, sprinkled with the powder, and set with the Heat Tool.
TIP: I stamped the sentiment first, in case it didn’t stamp just right, and used the Embossing Buddy to improve my chances. You can see in this close-up, there’s still room for improvement! Fortunately, the camera picks up more than the naked eye, so the stray powder won’t be seen by the recipient.
I used the “splotch” and “splatter” stamps from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set for the red and pink colors. The “splotch” is in Melon Mambo Ink and Lovely Lipstick Ink, which I stamped several times without re-inking. The “splatter” is Melon Mambo, stamped-off in two places.
After placing the poppy “frames” on Dimensionals, I added a few black jewels from my stash.
Today’s colors are from the Paper Players.
I’m also sharing with the “let it grow” theme at Global Design Project.
My store is open for business, and I’ve started offering a free gift to everyone who orders $50.00-149.00 within a month. If you use my Host Code, U463KNM3, February’s gift is the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder. I would love to send this to you in March.
