Lia Stampz May Blog Hop!

Sending Lots of Love_3

 

Hello! I am so happy you have stopped by for the Lia Stampz May blog hop!

Today we are celebrating the release of the new flower digi stamps, which are available for purchase over at the Lia Stampz shop, and I have a few cards to share with you that I created using the new digis being released this month.

Because they are my favorite flower, my first card features the three beautiful daffodil digis, which I have clustered together, printed out, and colored with Copic markers. I used stamps from the Simon Says Stamp Sending Happy Thoughts set for my sentiment, and added some pink and cream dot details with Viva Paint Pens and Copics.

The daffodil panel is layered onto a black card base and a yellow ribbon is tied around the card as well. For a final finishing touch, a bit of Wink of Stella glitter is added to the daffodils.

For my second card, I used the Lily of the Valley stamp to create a sweet card for mom. Even though Mother’s Day has past, this card could be used for any type of reason for sending a card to your mom!

I colored the flower with Copic markers and fussy cut it out. I created the background panel using Simon Says Stamp Mint cardstock, a lattice stencil and Cracked Pistachio distress ink. I also flicked on some ink splatters using white paint and gold Heidi Swapp color shine.

The ‘mother’ die cut is created inside my Silhouette Studio program using the font Sweet Tea by Sweet Elsie, and is cut out four times from white cardstock. I layered the four die cuts together and covered the top layer with Glossy Accents.

I put the card together and added a scattering of pearls and some ribbon and twine to finish off the design.  I love how this one has such a feminine look about it, perfect for a card for mom!

For my final card I used the Peonies digi stamp, and created a scene by copying and pasting it a few times around the drawing area of my computer design program.

I printed my scene out and colored it completely with Copic markers. I also created the background of my scene with Copics, by using a stippling technique and multiple shades of pink, yellow and green.

Because I had so much detail on this card, I wanted the focus to be on the artwork, so I went for a clean and simple layout. I scored a double frame around the edges and did some paper piercing inside the frame as well. I layered the panel onto some scalloped cardstock and my vellum card base, before finally adding some Wink of Stella glitter and Glossy Accents to parts of the image.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my inspiration for this new stamp release for Lia Stampz! Be sure to continue along on the hop, as all my fellow design teammates each have some amazing creations to share as well!

    Very pretty cards! I’ve never seen pink Lily of the Valley before. I am intrigued! I think I will have to change my mind on my favourite flower after seeing your cards! I choose Lily of the Valley.

    All three are just beautiful!! but if I had to pick one it would be the Daffodils!!!! I just love them with their bright yellow color, some of the first to bloom in the spring. Thanks for the chance to win.

    You made three absolutely stunning cards!! I am just in love with the peony one, love your background too!! While hopping this blog hop, it is just coming more and more clear that I need to get more copies… You made the peony look so awesome, I still have soft spot for those poppies though.

    New To your blog and love your colouring style. I think I love the tulips most but you have made it hard, each flower has been represented so beautifully.

    Your cards are beautiful, poppies are my favourite, but I could easily change to daffodils after seeing your effort

    What a beautiful card your daffodil card is. My favorite is the tulip with the daffodil second because I have not used digital stamps and think that tulips would be easier to use.

    Beautiful art work! It’s amazing that this stamp set has all my favorite flowers; as if one read my mind. My favorite will have to be the Lily of the Valley, though it’s so unfair to have to chose one :)

    Lily of the valley caught my eye as it took me back to my grandmother’s garden. Then when I saw your card – yep, lily of the valley is my favorite for sure! Thanks for the beautiful inspiration.
