Razzleberry Lilies




Good Thursday Morning Peeps!

Today I am sharing a card I made a while back and hadn't posted yet. I begin this card with a base of kraft aka crumb cake card stock. I followed with a layer of rich razzleberry that I embossed with a the Swiss Dot EF and my cuttlebug.

I stamped the lily flowers from the Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set onto the kraft card stock with versamark and then used some white embossing powder on them. I then used my aqua painter with razzleberry ink to color them in. I used a bit of summer sun on the middles.

The sentiment comes from the Thank You Kindly stamp set. It was stamped with black stazon. I added three white brads under the sentiment. I then pierced all around the edge using my mat pack and piercing tool. I recently got an e-mail (Hi Pamela) asking how I keep my piercing straight and lined up. I have a little tip and maybe you all already know this but since I had some one ask I thought I would share. I start my piercing in one of the corners and work out a little less than half way and sometimes I just pierce 5 to 6 holes and then go to the opposite corner and do the same. I keep working toward the center and if I see the holes are not going to meet, {match up} I adjust the piercing a little each way to make them line up. I do that on each side. Hope that helps anyone who might struggle with this.

I matted the main panel with razzleberry and then white and mounted to the base with some dimensionals.





Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

This is gorgeous, Vicki!! Love the white embossing of the flowers and you have coloured them fabulously! Great tip on the piercing. I just eyeball mine for the most part, but this is a good idea I need to try out. Have a fabulous day :D
