Lilypad Lake Special Birthday Card – Large and Small. My brother celebrated his birthday on Tuesday and I made him a special, large, card for it. He has always enjoyed sailing, so I pulled out the Lilypad Lake Bundle to make his card.
I am really enjoying using this set and feel that I have only started to scratch the surface of what I can make with it. There are so many options and I have yet to ink up the Lilypad itself! The stamp I am going to use the most has to be the waves, which are fantastic in an ombre for the sea, but I have also seen them used for simple backgrounds too.
All of the Colours I used are new, either InColors, or part of the Colour Revamp. The sea is Soft Sea Foam, Balmy Blue and Blueberry Bushel. The Sun is Pineapple Punch and the boats are all coloured in using the new InColor Stampin’ Write Markers. I coloured the Sun with Pineapple Punch and a Blender Pen, to get the slightly hazy effect. I used more Blueberry Bushel for the sentiment, which is also from Lilypad Lake.
The main image is layered on some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper to add a ‘little something special’. This can be a little challenging to adhere to, but I find Multi Purpose Adhesive is the best to use, unless you want to add dimension, with Dimensionals. The finished effect is White on White, which is fast becoming one of my favourite looks. I think it is really clean and classic, and the Glimmer Paper and Dimensionals take it to a special level.
I am hoping that my brother enjoys his larger version of the card and that you enjoyed this more classic size. Why not give it a go!

Today is the very last day to make the most of the Retiring List and also to enter my May Prize Draw. If there are any retiring items you still need, or you want any of the current Bundles, then hop over to my OnLine store NOW. Remember, just because a stamp set and matching dies/punch are carrying over, does not mean that the Bundle price will be too. In fact I can tell you IT WON’T. So get it NOW!
For every £25 you spend in May AND use the Hostess Code, you will be entered into a draw to win the Color Caddy and all four of the Core Color Family Ink Pads (as shown in the 2017-18 Annual Catalogue) worth in excess of £200! If you place orders of £50, you will get 2 entries, £75, you will get 3 entries etc. BUT if you place a single order of over £150 and opt to be your own Hostess (which means you pick how to spend your Rewards) you will only get ONE entry into the draw. Please note that this is a gift from me, and is non-returnable. The usual Customer Gifts will not be effected by the Prize Draw, so if you use the Hostess Code you will get a share of the Rewards, as usual. EVERYONE who shops with me will receive a handmade card and gift in the middle of the following month, regardless of how much you spend.
If your order is over £25 (plus P&P), please use the Hostess Code:
