Beautiful Lily cu 07267
Weekly-Favorite Best of 2015 SCSx 2
Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs Mid September Release! We have some gorgeous images & fabulous dies for you! You’re going to LOVE these

Beautiful Lily 07263For my first card, I put the lily image in my Misti & stamped it first w/ Memento, colored it w/ Copics then stamped over it w/ Versafine. I repeated this on a second image & fussy cut 2 sets of petals to pop up on top of the original 2 flowers. The lily panel was first die cut w/ a matting basics die, then I used one of the fabulous Leafy Edged Border dies to cut the lower edge. I had to do a little out of the box on a few of the petals to keep from cutting them off. The lower white portion was trimmed down some to allow the blue layer to show through.  I also trimmed around several of the petals on the right to insert the greeting ovals.

Beautiful Lily xcu 07270The blue dp was die cut w/ the largest Flourished Star Pattern die & I used a very narrow frame of the purplish dp I had left over to surround the white layers. The paper is actually not this fuchsia shade but I used a copic over it to make it match my flowers. I also die cut 2 strips to place behind the upper & lower curved edges.

Here’s a look at the inside using some leftover pieces & below it are the Copics I used.Beautiful Lily inside 07271

Beauty xcu 07288My second card uses the greeting from the Beauty set and die cut flowers from the Pretty Posies set.  I also used the vine from the Fancy Foliage dies.
Beauty 07280I did a negative/positive arrangement with the dies…the pink vine & top flower are negatives of the two die cuts & the background paper is showing through. The lower flower & top white flower are positive die cuts & were added on top. I started to shape them but changed my mind because I liked the clean, crisp look just the way they were. All I did was elevate the layers a bit.

  1. Both cards are beautiful. My favorite is the one with the new Pretty Posies die. Inside and out it’s just lovely. Nice papers that you used with it. The leaves turned out so pretty with the patterned paper.

  2. These two are just stunning – I particularly like the lily and what you did with it. It looks so real and the out of the box technique with the petals looks great.

  3. All your work is lovely, but I was especially impressed with the coloring of the lily; love how you manage to use two distinct colors and yet blend them so perfectly!

  4. Beautiful cards. Love the colors and details.

  5. GF, you have knocked me out once again!!! Super creative, gorgeous cards!!! LOVE them both!!!!!!! HUGS!!
