Introducing Lily of the Valley stamp set! This set is a 4×6 size and retails for $15. One of our favorite flowers, the lily of the valley is an extra large stamp measuring 4 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches.
First up is Evgenia sharing a shabby chic card featuring one of the sentiments from this set. We adore how she made the sentiment one of the focal points on her card. She cut out this sentiment from our new Fancy Labels 3 Die too! More on our new die on Friday! Here are a few inspiring photos from Evgenia.
“Hello dear friends! Its a new release week on IBS blog, we are all so excited and cant wait to share with you new sets and our projects from them.
I have made another shabby chic inspired card.
And here are 2 close ups of it: I have bended a little bit the banner die cut and adhered it only on the edges to give it more dimension.
Next up is our super talented designer Vicki sharing a gorgeous card featuring this lovely set! Her coloring is so fabulous! We especially love how she used one of the sentiments with the new banner die too! Here’s Vicki sharing her beautiful card!
Hi everyone, Vicki here. Today I get to help kick off the May Release! I can say, you are in for a treat this week with the fabulous stamp sets Joanna has created. Today, I am showcasing Lilly of the Valley.
I just adore this image — and the best part is it is easy to color! [Yes, I struggle with coloring ;)]
Remember, everyday this week the Design Team will be showcasing a different stamp set!
See you later~
Next, it’s my turn to share some inspirations from this set! I LOVED drawing this flower. It is one of my all time favorite flower. It also is a blast to color! You can use it as a focal point or use just sections of the flower as shown below. The sentiments are true and dear to my heart too. This set will be a great addition to your stamp collection!
I was so excited to pair the new set up with our Garden Seed Packet stamp set. I couldn’t create a smaller version of the lily of the valley without losing the beautiful details of this stamp set. So I stamped the lily on two pieces of white card stock and cut the top of the flower creating a beautiful lily of the valley bouquet.
Next, I stamped the Garden Seed Packet in brown ink and cut it out. I then cut out the oval shape using our new Fancy Labels 3 Die! Can I just say LOVE when it comes to this new die! You will see why throughout the week!
I lifted the seed packet and my flowers up with foam dimensions. You can see in this photo how great they look with a little more dimension to my card.
This sentiment comes from our new set and pairs up perfectly with the banner from the Garden Seed Packet. I then added some stitching and a white seam binding bow.
My next card shows just how beautiful and large this stamp actually is. You can create it as your focal point and have lots of fun coloring!
After stamping and coloring with Copic Markers, I then cut it out using a Die. We are also offering Cut Files for this stamp set at our store to be used with any cutting machine.
After stitching on my paper, I added some Victorian Crochet Trim and a pink triple bow.
We hope you loved today’s new stamp set! We are so excited to be sharing new product this week! A special thank you to Vicki and Evgenia for creating lovely cards today.
