Awesome Lilacs

Awesome-lilacs

Hello and welcome to the last day of our Memory Box Blog Blitz. So happy you have stopped by and I am hoping you have checked out all the new dies and stamps that are now available at you favorite retailer. This stamp set I am using today Spring Lilacs has soooo much to offer. Adorable flowers for Summer and Spring, pretty leaves to use now or in the Fall, and great sentiments to use year round.

 

Here is how I made this card:

 

Start with a white case card. I always make my base cards the same...cut white cardstock 4.25 x 11 inches, then fold in half.

Cut a white cardstock panel 4.25 x 5.50 inches. Ink this panel with Distress Oxide Iced Spruce and Cracked Pistachio...I know the color sounds awful together, but it really works. Now flick a little water across this panel and let dry. Adhere inked panel to card base.

Cut white cardstock 4 x 5.25 inches and die cut with Pinpoint Double Frame as shown.  Use a scoring board to emboss a few lines along the left side of card, then adhere to card base.

Stamp and die cut the Spring Lilacs. Color with Spectrum Noir markers VB1,  VB3 as well as AB1, AB3 and the leaves with YG1 and YG3.

Adhere to card front with foam adhesive.

Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment onto Vellum.

Add a bow to the flowers and drops of Glossy White Crystal Drops to flower centers. (white drops take on the color of the alcohol marker after they dry)

 

So.....which dies or stamps are your favorite?

Please leave me a comment before Midnight May 14th (that's today) and I will be giving away the Spring Lilacs stamp set to one very lucky person.

 

Happy Crafting,
