Lilypad Lake Retirement Cards

Hi there! Where I work retirements are most common at the end of June every year, so retirement cards are always needed during this month. I decided to use the new Lilypad Lake bundle to make a couple of them:

I love this bundle! It is so easy to build a pretty little scene. Above, I used the squiggle line die to replicate water that the heron is walking in. So easy and effective. I sponged Mango Melody ink on some Whisper White card stock and cut out a sun with the circle die in the bundle. A simple little sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings and I’m done!

For the second card, above here, I used the squiggle lines stamp to create a water scene – stamping it several times. So easy and looks great! I added some little stamped and colored sailboats and another sponged sun. This sentiment is from the Petal Palette stamp set.

Two great retirement cards! And don’t you love the pretty summery, beachy colors I used for the card bases – Coastal Cabana and Mango Melody!

The sailboats were colored with the original Stampin’ Blends. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new Stampin’ Blends colors at Stampin’ Up! so I can order them. I need more colors to play with! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
