Stamping Around the World Blog Hop, Lilypad Lake

Welcome to the Stamping Around the World May Blog Hop.  For the May tutorial, I used the stamp set Lilypad Lake.  Today I have a very different card using this stamp set and the Lakeside Dies.  You might have just come from Sue's blog.  Great project!

Here is my card.

Lilypad Lake by Jo Anne Hewins

I have a video that I will add near the end of my post.

Start with a card base of Night of Navy.  It is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Pool Party base is 4 x 5 1/4.

Next is a layer of Whisper White.  It measures 3 3/4 x 5.  Stamp the waves from Lilypad Lake in Night of Navy.  I started at the bottom of the layer and worked up.  I stamped this 3 times.  Now sponge over the entire layer with Pool Party.  I had places that were a little heavier than others.  It doesn't matter because the sky and sea have variations.

Use the Lakeside Dies to cut a sun from Daffodil Delight.  The clouds are cut using the Up & Away Dies that are retiring.  Cut three clouds from Whisper White.  Glue the sun and clouds to the layer.

Use the Layering Squares to cut two squares from this layer to form a frame.

Adhere all of the layers including the outside part of the sponged layer.  Lay the frame so that it fits inside the hole.  Now add adhesive to the inside of the square and adhere.  Remove the frame and add Foam Adhesive Strips and adhere so that everything is aligned.

Stamp two sets of the boats on Whisper White with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Color these using the Light Mango Melody, Light Night of Navy, and Dark Real Red Blends.  Cut out with the Lakeside Dies.  Add to the card.

The saying is stamped on a 3/4 inch strip of Whisper White.  Use Night of Navy ink.  Notch the ends and add to the card.  Add a boat with a dimensional.

oh, that was quite nice when it popped on my screen. I love the colours and the beautiful scene. I feel calmer just by looking at it!

I love this idea Jo Anne. You could use this idea for so many different stamps. Another great idea to file away. Thanks for sharing this.
