Lilypad Lake Cut Away Card

Hi Stampers,

I used the Cut Away Card Technique but with a twist--I turned it to landscape. Just a little experimenting with it, so I went with it. I also like the embossed end pieces for continuity of the "waves".

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #293-Lilypad Lake Diorama Tunnel Card

#293

Hi Stampers,

Welcome back for a DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. What a tongue twister in the title. Say that fast 10 times. LOL Today's challenge we are using one or more of the 10 new colors showcased in our Annual Catalog. I am using the gorgeous Balmy Blue.

Keeping with my challenge this week,  I used Lilypad Lake to make a fun fold card called Diorama Tunnel Card. The best part of making these types of cards you can embellish lightly or heavily. It justs depends on what you like!! I also love the sentiment for this card. It pairs well with a water scene.

I used an extra die cut of the herron to give it a shadow effect.

I used the beach and sand flecks stamps from the Waterfront stamp set.

I used the circle cut out from the inside for the front of the card

I can see myself making more of these cards in the future.

 


Lilypad Lake Shadowbox Card

Hi Stampers,

Going along with my challenge, today I made a shadowbox card with the Lilypad Lake stamp set. I also used the palm tree image from the Waterfront stamp set. You can't have an ocean scene without some palm trees!!!! This card goes well with the weather we are having here in Michigan--another 90 degree day and muggy. Hopefully the humidity will settle down and soon.

I did do a lot of masking with this card-sunset, water and sentiment. The sentiment was die cut even smaller than the framelit in the Lilypad bundle. You just die cut using the framelit, run it through the Big Shot, move the framelit over and run it through the Big Shot again.

I also used Whisper White for the "back panel" so you can turn the card over to write your message to the recipient.

Shadowbox Card

  1. Cut 2 pieces of cardstock 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inches. Score each piece along the 5-1/2" piece at 1/2, 1, 4-1/2 and 5 inches.
  2. Die cut or punch out your opening on the front piece.
  3. Stamp image on the back panel.
  4. Burnish all score lines.
  5. Using tear tape adhere your card together on both ends.
  6. Using scrap cardstock, stamp your sentiment and cut out.
  7. Embellish card if needed.

I hope you give this fun fold a try!!! Remember to add this stamp bundle to your shopping cart today!! If you spend $50 or more before shipping and handling, you will receive a $5 off your order for next month!!! No limits!!!

Lilypad Lake Acrylic Blocks

Hi Stampers,

Have you ever wanted to try something out of the ordinary? Well I did. I used my acrylic block as the stamp. I have seen many cards done this way and thought what the heck, I'm going to give it a try. I'm trying to step out of my comfort zone trying new techniques and such. I think I need some work but it isn't terrible. After all, I have to keep telling myself "it's only paper."
