Lotus Flowers

 I used the beautiful new Lotus Frame die from Simon Says Stamp's latest Blossoms and Butterflies release and made a couple cards to share with you today...
 The first one, I die cut three frames, adhered them together and then adhered them to a watercolor panel that I stamped, clear embossed and watercolor painted.  I used the new Sketchy Lines background stamp, stamping with versamark and clear embossed.  I added some Tonic Jewel drops to give some extra pretty to the lovely lotus flowers.  Here's a close up...
The second one, I filled in the flowers with non other than paint chips. 
I used three shades of pink  paint chips.  The pics I saw of some lotus flowers showed some with darker tips at the ends of the flower petals, so I used the darkest pink at the tips where I could.  I stamped a "happy birthday" on vellum and white embossed.  I adhered it around the frame, then adhered to a card panel that I had simply stamped the very pretty new Floral Mix background stamp with versa mark and let dry.  Here's a close up...
I love this frame, and although I love them all, this frame is probably my favorite of all the framed flowers in this new release!  Such great fun!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. Wow, they are both so beautiful and inspiring! Love so much the sweet background of the first card and such amazing lotus frame!

  2. Gorgeous creations, Lisa!

  3. Double WOW!! They are both very beautiful. Love the two different looks with the Lotus Frame.

  4. I have a picture in my head of you over at Home Depot picking out paint chips. The conversation behind the counter: "I wish she'd make up her mind and buy some paint already, she's been looking at chips for years." I have often oohed and ahhed over your paint chip shading! Both of your cards are wonderful! The die cut looks so different, but beautiful on both cards!

  5. Beautiful cards! Love the flower frame & your gorgeous backgrounds! I have a couple shoeboxes full of paint chips & you always inspire me to use them!

  6. Awesome cards Lisa!

  7. Hello, how do you get the pink pieces in the second card to stay in place please? They are both lovely cards!
