I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators’ Blog Hop, this month featuring Sale-A-Bration items, brought to you by fellow demonstrators from all over the world. You may have landed here from Shirley Merker’s blog.
I am always looking at everyday items that will give me inspiration to make a card. It can be a colour combination on a dress in a shop window, the design on a coffee cup, or in this case, something in my garden!
While it is winter in the northern hemisphere, in Australia we are enjoying the warm weather of summer. I have a bed of lilies at my front door that bloom from the beginning of December. They flower one at a time in a variety of colours, so every few days, a new beautiful flower greets me as I enter or exit my front door – it always makes me smile!
One particular lily started out a creamy colour with dark pink edges when it first appeared, and then as it matured, the colour changed, ending up a lighter pink.
Perfect inspiration for a card, and the Lasting Lily was the stamp set that I needed! This set has lilies, leaves and stems and a selection of useful and meaningful sentiments. These are the three cards I made that reflect the different stages of my lily.
Below are the products that I used to create these cards.
I hope my cards inspire you to use this stamp set.

All these supplies can be purchased through my online store.
The Lasting Lily is one of the sets available through Sale-A-Bration. You can choose this as a free item if you spend $180 before shipping.
If you live in Australia and don’t have a demonstrator, I would love to help you with any Stampin’ Up! products that you would like to purchase.
