Clean and Simple Peruvian Lily Cards
Hello Crafty Friends! And, welcome to another blog post.
For today's blog I would like to share with you how I made these 2 Clean and Simple Peruvian Lily Cards. Also, I would like to share different examples of color combination that I have used to build the flowers. Even though I am only sharing 2 completed cards with the shades of oranges I thought that was a good idea sharing with you the other colors as you can see down below.
So, Let's Get Stared!
For the stamping I am featuring the BuilAFlower Peruvian Lily stamp and die set along with 2 different background dies by Altenew.
I started by stamping the Lilies in different colors. To stamp them I used 3 different inks from the same color family to stamp the petals. To keep it simple I stamped with the same color family of yellow inks the inside of all of them. And, I used the same Brown and Black for their stamens.
The inks that I used were all by Gina K Designs. I prefer the mini ink cubes ( although you can use any type of similar color inks of your preference) Here is the list of the each color family that I used to stamp their petals.
Orange- Peach Bellini, Sweet Mango, Coral Reef
Aqua- Sea Glass, Blue Lagoon, Tranquil Teal
Purple- Lovely Lavender, Wild Wisteria, Plum Punch
Pink- Innocent Pink, Dusty Rose, Passionate Pink (in this last category, I used them in different ways as I used the Dusty Rose to stamp 2 different layers of the flower for a softer look. And, same on the Passionate Pink I stamped twice and 2 different layers for a darker look.)
Also, here are the ink colors for the inside part of the Lilies and the Leaves.
Yellow- Lemon Drop, Wild Dandelion, Prickly Pear, Sweet Corn
Green- Jelly Bean Green, Grass Green, Fresh Asparagus
Black- Black Onyx
Brown- Charcoal Brown
Yay!! the list of the ink colors is big. But, I hope it can gives a reference of the color combinations used here.
For the first example. I started by die cutting with a die cutting machine the Leaf Frame Cover die in an A2 standard size Nennah Classic Crest 80lb solar white card panel. Then, I adhered the backed of the frame with liquid glue to a white card base. To adhere the Lilies I used a combination of liquid glue and foam mounting tape to add dimension in between them. And, to finish it up I gold heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set with Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing powder in a piece of white cardstock. Last but not least I adhered the backed of the sentiment with foam mounting tape to the card.
For the second example, I made a double gate card. And, for this all I did was to score a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb solar white card base that measured H 5.5'' X W 8.5'' at 2 1/8'' from one side I turned it 360 degrees and I scored once again at 2 1/8''. For the background I used the inside pieces of the Striped Leaf Cover Die than I adhered with liquid glue to 2 pieces of white cardstock that measured H 5.25'' X W 1 7/8 ''each. Then, I adhered those to the gates of the card. For the middle part of the card. I used the Hero Arts Oval Nesting Dies to die cut one green oval and one white oval for contrasting. Once I die cutting them I adhered half of the backed from the green oval to one of the gates then I adhered the whole backed of the white oval to the green. Last but not least I adhered the Lily and 2 leaves on top of it. To finish it up I stamped the Hello sentiment right on top of the white oval and I stamped the Stay Awesome sentiment on a piece of white cardstock.( both sentiments are from (Needlework Motif stamp set) along I with a few Jewels to add a little bit of sparkle.
