Lasting Lily Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Free with $100 Purchase Sympathy Card Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2019 Artisan Design Team

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″. 
  2. Use the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and two largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits DIes to crop a frame of Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Adhere with snipped to size Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the following images from the Lasting Lily Stamp Set onto Crumb Cake Cardstock: Two large and two small lily petals in Gorgeous Grape Classic Ink.  Two large stems, two small stems, and three leaves in Old Olive Classic Ink.  Crop with a Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, and coordinating Lily Framelits Dies (Available March 1st – March 31st, while supplies last).  Assemble, wrap the stems with Old Olive Linen Thread,  and adhere as shown with regular and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Use the Stamparatus to position and stamp the “Heartfelt” sentiment (Well Said Stamp Set) in Gorgeous Grape via the upper left corner as shown. 
  5. Crop the “sympathy” (Well Written Framelits) in Gorgeous Grape Cardstock using the Big Shot.  Adhere with tiny bits of Snail Adhesive.

I admit, I don’t grab for Gorgeous Grape enough for my creations, but when I do, I am so happy that I did!  Gorgeous Grape and Old Olive were meant to be together! I love the combination on this card.  What is your favorite go-to color?

The Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies are one of my favorites from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions catalog! They pair well with so many things and the fact that they layer within themselves is an added bonus.  I love that I can easily and quickly make a frame for any card or creation.

The Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins are a great addition to add just the right touch to any creation.  The Highland Heather has a shimmer that helps them pair with the Gorgeous Grape without looking off in color.

    Beautiful! You are definitely convincing me to get the framelits since I already have the stamp set. I also love the colors of paper and ink. Great job!

    This is a great color to use for a Sympathy Card. A beautiful work of art with the stitched frame.

    I don’t understand how you are getting a double stitched area on your frame. Can you explain please?

      Hi Lora,
      You get the double stitched area by “nesting” the 2nd largest rectangle stitched die inside of the largest stitched die. You run them through the Big Shot both at the same time and use the piece from the middle of the two dies…make sense?
