MC Apr/15 - Quill Water Lilly - Hello - A Smile - HB started carving rubber stamps again... I needed a big lily pad leaf BIG GRIN, so carved it from Clear Carve Lino. It's good stuff, love that its clear and I can see where I'm stamping.

Also using water droplet stamp from Designs by Ryn. She's got really nice stamps.

The Water Lily was a take on one my quilling friend was trying to make, so I thought I'd try making one too. Love the way it turned out, although I don't see myself making too many of them. Takes quite a bit of quilling paper and time, plus it's 5/8" high...

I'm using one of Suzanne's (Quietfire Design) newest dies "Hello". A birthday sentiment stamp ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7pce set). And parts of 2 other stamps for the quote ("A Smile is the Best" & "Always Be My Friend" 3pce set);

Anyway to see all the details and descriptions for this easel card just click on any image. Enjoy
