Lilypad Lake for Sweet Suite Saturday

Hello stampers. I have a wonderful surprise on Saturday when I opened up my Lilypad Lake stamp set. Inside were three beautiful cards already made. I had forgotten that I had put these cards inside the case. All I had to do was make one more card and then I was all set for my Sweet Suite Saturday class. I shared that card with you yesterday. Thanks to my team member Alison Reid for making these cards for me many, many months ago. Let’s take a look at them.

 

Beautiful dies from Lilypad Lake make this stunning background.

 

Don’t you just love the background of this card? There is a fantastic die in the Lilypad Lake bundle that cuts this beautiful wavy background. I find it such a calm and peaceful card, perfect for the sentiment that it expresses.

 

Three introspective herons from Lilypad Lake.

 

I love this gathering of three herons contemplating the horizon. What a serene card. This last card is more funky and vibrant. I love all the different images and sayings in this set.

 

Lilypad Lake goes bold and nautical. Framelits make it easy.

 

In this card Lilypad Lake goes bold and nautical. Framelits make it easy to create a fun card like this. No endless fussy cutting! The last project I am going to share with you is from another Canadian demonstrator, Elizabeth Green. I just love the sayings and what she did with it. This goes to show you that stamps are not only for card making! If you want to read all about her project, you can visit her blog here.

Isn’t this just a fabulous stamp set? I hope these projects brought a smile to your face, I know I am smiling. I can’t wait to make Elizabeth’s project, I have some art fairs coming up and this might just fit the bill perfectly. Have a super day and let me know if you want to join in on Sweet Suite Saturday. The class will be on June 1 at 1pm. The cost is $25 for four cards or FREE with the purchase of the bundle.

Brusho and Lilypad Lake

Hello stampers. On Saturday I had my monthly Sweet Suite Saturday class and two of the cards used Brusho. What a lot of fun it was! Everyone’s cards were unique and beautiful and I was inspired to keep creating. So when everyone went home and it was time to clean up, I kept the Brusho out and I made this card. We had already decided that for next month’s Sweet Suite Saturday we would use Lilypad Lake and I had three cards all ready to go but I needed one more. I decided that it would be another Brusho card. After a quick peek online I found some inspiration from Becky Jensen. You can see her card here. It is such a treat to have an idea to build on.  Do you want to see what I made?

 

The heron from Lilypad Lake looks striking against the Brusho background.

 

I think the white heron from Lilypad Lake looks striking against the Brusho background. Now the question is does it look better clean and white like this or with a saying? Here is the one with the saying. I look forward to hearing what you have to say about it.

 

Here is the Lilypad Lake card with a sentiment

 

The front of the card was cut out using the stitched rectangles framelits. So easy and so elegant! The brusho background was done on shimmery white cardstock but you could also use watercolour paper. I used Prussian Blue and Yellow Brusho for the background. The sentiment is also from Lilypad Lake. Right now you can still save 10% on the Lilypad Lake bundle, but in the new catalogue it will no longer be a bundle, so keep that in mind when you order.

 

Here is the brusho background before the layering.

 

In this next photo I show you how I layered the rectangle frame overtop of my Brusho layer.

I used regular dimensionals to pop up the frame over my brusho background but you could also use dimensional strips. That got me thinking that this could also be an amazing shaker card!!  I hope you enjoyed today’s technique card. Brusho is going to be retiring and I just want to encourage you to get it because it really does bring out your inner child. As adults we don’t take enough time to play and this product actually does just that. It gets you to play and forget bad weather, difficult circumstances, pain, whatever. I’m so happy I discovered it!
