Yes, it's sad but true. Lily Pad is going away. They will be leaving their site up but no more new news. I for one am so sad to see them go. It was a great highlight to my weekend when the news feed would arrive in my e-mail and I would see that link to the video tutorials. I couldn't leave home until I'd sat through that groovy tune and watched some card making yummies. But as the ladies said, it's time to move on. So to celebrate the happy times we've all shared at the Lily Pond, Deborah is giving away some stamping swag. Visit Deborah's Blog and get in on the draw!
For my card I used the Vintage Santa stamp from Stampabilities. The sentiment is a die from Peachy Cheap. To add some color to my stamped image I used Distress Oxide inks on a cotton swab.
The stamped background is En Francais from Stampin' Up!
This card was created using a varied array of supplies.
I started with SU! Whisper White cs. Using a dauber I applied TSUKINEKO pigment inks -- Toffee, Imperial Purple, Deep Lagoon and Spanish Moss. Then placing a few different stencils in the bottom right hand corner I applied Imperial Purple and Blue Lagoon. Then with Staz-On Black I stamped Textures Water Droplets (CM-T3) from Designs by Ryn. I added white gel pen to highlight the droplets. I used a stencil from Layers of Color Natural Flourish and daubed on Spanish Moss.
Then on another piece of cs I stamped the little seahorse from Pink Paislee's Nantucket stamp set. With my daubers I rubbed on the TSUKINEKO inks. Then I took my Stickles and added some glitz. Lastly I added some rhinestones and call it done. Hope you like my little trip to the ocean. It's been mighty chilly here in North Central Texas for the past week. I was just envisioning some warmer temps.
Designs by Ryn has a challenge going on right now. So if you…
