Altenew Build-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily

Happy July everyone! I'm super excited to participate in the Blog hop for Altenew's Build-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily The Build-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily set includes 1 6x8 stamp set (14 stamp images) and 1 coordinating die set (2 dies).
This special product is only sold as a set, not individually


Build-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily

Here is a snippet of info on the Peruvian Lily, also known as Alstroemeria, blooms in a variety of colors and is native to South America. Some petals are flecked with darker shades, resulting in a distinctive and beautiful look. This stamp set includes a realistic and incredibly detailed Peruvian lily, designed to be stamped in contrasting or coordinating colors. A lovely leaf and painted sentiment finish off the set.

And here are my projects:
This first card features the Peruvian Lily stamped with all the layers. I used the mini crisp ink sets Rose Petal and Tea Party. By mixing up the different inks, each bloom has it's own unique look, yet coordinate because of the similar color sets used.
The leaves are stamped with Frayed Leaf and colored with the Artistic Markers. The coordinating dies made cutting the images out a snap and then I layered them onto a panel cut from the Spring Shower Cover Die inked with Shades of Purple mini cubes.


Layering Guide


************************************
Creating the next card was a labor of love as I colored the Peruvian Lily  images with both Artistic Markers and Ziggys at my mother's bedside. 
(My Mom peacefully passed away, in her home, June 12th with her family by her side.  Ending a two year  bout with Lymphoma in victory, because there is no more pain or worry. Only new Life, with a New Body, rejoicing on the Otherside, in eternal Glory with our Creator:)

The final layer of the stamen is embossed with GOLD embossing powder for a simple pop of bling! I LOVE the sentiments that come in the set:)
**************************************
And my final project with the Peruvian Lily is a 3D home decor hoopart. So excited at how this turned out!!
I stamped several layers from the Peruvian Lily set onto a 7x7" piece of linen tablecloth of mom's. Then I added color and texture with simple stitches of embroidery thread.  Leaving some areas colored in with the Artistic Markers adds more interest to the piece. The BEAUTIFUL sentiment is from the Simple Flowers stamp set. My rusty embroidery skills quickly improved after a few minutes and I found that stitching was good therapy for a weary soul:) 
To finish off the back side of the hoop, I cut a circle from Pattern paper stamped with the special thank you set from Altenew, and glued it to the back for a clean and simple look.  
These two coordinating projects are my submission for the final challenge at AECP for Level 2.

Hello LauraJane I fell in love with your Peruvian Lily with the Spring Shower cover die. I shy away from creating so many layers and your card made me want to jump in and try. Thank you for a great inspiration. Now that I've visited your blog, I'm a big fan!!

Jackie said...

Wow! Your cards and hoop art are all absolutely gorgeous!! That second card is just stunning. Not sure what about it just draws me in. Maybe it's the colour combination of the deep pinks and greens. The little bit of bling is a nice touch too. The hoop art is amazing and so creative. Such a lovely keepsake of your mom using a piece of her linen tablecloth!! Sending my sympathy on the loss of your mom. It's hard for those left behind and yet we rejoice because she fought the good fight, she's finished the race. There's no more pain or tears for her. I pray that God will bring you peace and comfort during this time. Hugs!
