Here's a simple way to use my new Lily Stamp Set. Here's what you will need:
Cardstock in white and pink
The Speciall Lily stamp set from MSRS
Glacier White embossing powder
Versamark Inkpad or similar pigment inkpad
Paper Soft paint in Rose and a foam brush applicator from Viva-Decor (a dye inkpad in a similar color and a stipple brush will work well as a substitute).
Craft knife and cutting mat
double sided tape or glue
foam mounting tape or pop dots
Cut the white cardstock to make a 5"x7" folded card, cut a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece and a 3 1/4" x 5" piece.
Cut the pink cardstock into a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece and a 5 1/4" x 3 1/2" piece
Layer the pink 5 1/4" x 3 1/2" and the white 5" x 3 1/4" cardstock on the front of the folded card as frames.
Stamp the background stamp onto the 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" white cardstock using the Versamark pad. Emboss using the Glacier White embossing powder. Cut out around the outer frame of the stamped image.
Stamp the large Lily onto the pink 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" cardstock using the Versamark inkpad. Emboss with Glacier White embossing powder.
Color the Lily before you cut it out. Open the Paper Soft and tap the foam brush gently on the foam insert inside the jar. Color the Lily by applying the loaded foam brush flat against the paper surface and in a round and round hand motion work the color from the center outward.Cut the Lily out with scissors. Use a craft knife and cutting mat to cut away the inside areas as shown in the finished card.
Color the background the same way as the Lily making the background panel dark pink at one end and light pink at the other.
Attached the colored background to the front of the card inside the frame pieces. Attach the cut out Lily using foam tape or pop dots for a 3D effect.
