Lilies and Lace

The theme at “A Place to Start” for May is Lilies and Lace. I love the beautiful artwork on Scrapandme papers! I had thought I would never get to use them, since they seem to be based in Poland, but got lucky, and found a shop in S.Carolina (Crafty City) that had a few of their collections. So this is my very first Scrapandme Card!

This card uses the Aquarelles paper collection, and of course, my favorite flower die company Heartfelt Creations for my hand crafted lilies and blossom. I sort of cheated, and used the dies for the daffodil, narrowed the petals a bit, and then used the leaves from the dahlia collection. (The fern leaves are from an unknown designer.)

I just love stamens that I used for the centers, don’t you? I had to hand die the purple ones, I had completely run out, but the ones I had were very pastel anyway, so (believe it or not!) I used the teal ones, and died them to purple you see here. The lace is from my stash, and I literally have only about six inches left of it!!

The inside was cut from the paper pack as well as the sentiment, using an old oval cutting device I have had for years made by Creative Memories.

Thanks for stopping by, and please leave me some feedback!!

  1. Wow this card is awesome. Those flowers are gorgeous and they’re perfect for the papers you’ve chosen. And that lace on the center is very elegant. María, xx
