Featured Stamper Lillies

How excited was I to see this week's Featured Stamper is none other than my ODBD sister - Angie Crockett!!!  WOOHOO!!!!!  Congrats GF - you are so deserving of this honour!!!!  :)  I didn't have to go far when I decided to case her Lily of the Valley card.  I kept the same image, bow feature, piercing and similar green/white colours.  I modified the layout (I swear it started off more similar but morphed into something completely different!), added some layers, pearls and different sentiment.

I started with a base of Hazel Bazzill and layered with white (pierced edges) and some MME French Flea Market DSP.  Then I stamped both the Lily of the Valley and Sentiment from ODBD's Easter Blessings - which is being released TOMORROW!!!!  Make sure you pop on by for the blog hop starting 8am US EST or 11pm AU EST!!!  I coloured the lillies with markers and a blender pen (old olive, always artichoke, sage shadow and cut it out with Small Circle Nestabilities.  I pierced the edge and then matted it with a Label 1 Hazel Bazzill die cut.  Next I added the side flourishes (which are actually the ends from the largest tag out of Spellbinders Fancy Tags) and popped the whole panel up on foam tape.  Then I notched the sentiment and attached it to the bottom of the card, adding a May Arts White Satin Ribbon bow made with my Bow Easy to the end of the panel.  To finish I added some small Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to each of the corners of the feature panel.

Accessories - Small Circle and Label 1 Nestabilities, Spellbinders Fancy Tags, May Arts White Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls.

Totally gorgeous image and papers, Kathy! I have some of that DP (okay, a lot of that DP, lol!) in my stash that I forgot about. I love it and need to pull it out and work with it again. Love it with the image and that big white bow.
