Would you like to add a rare royal touch to your projects? Well, you're in luck!
This stamp set features 8 layers to create gorgeously detailed Queen of the Lilies flowers. You will also find a couple of leaves with an outline layer, a full-color layer, and a color shading layer for beautiful stamping possibilities. Stamp one of the sweet sentiments to finish your card or scrapbook layout.

I created 2 cards using this stamp set.

For this first pink card, I stamped the various layers using firstly jet black dye ink ( for the outline layer, then the Spring Bouquet 6 mini ink cube set ( then die cut the images using the coordinating dies. I cut down a white panel to 4" x 5 1/4" to layer over another A2 panel. In order to create a pink border on the A2 panel which matched the pink, I used the darkest colour magenta from the ink set and swiped the ink pad directly onto the outer portions of the panel and then adhered the smaller panel to that to create the border.

I added some black splatters using the jet black ink. The images were arranged and adhered with Instant Dimension Tape  ( The sentiment comes from the Essential Sentiments Strips Die Set, die cut from iridescent card stock with a strip of black behind it for definition. A few silver embellishments from my stash finished off the card nicely.

For the second card, I used the Basic Plaid 3D embossing folder to emboss a black cardstock panel. The flowers and leaves were stamped using the Golden Sunset Mini Ink Cube Set  ( and the green inks from the Spring Bouquet 6 Mini ink cube set. The sentiment comes from the stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by to view my blog post. I hope I have inspired you?

See you next time.

  1. Your black embossed card with the yellow lily is my favourite of all the cards I have seen in this blog. Thank you so much for sharing and inspiring me.

    1. You are so welcome! I am glad you got some inspiration. Thank you for stopping by.

  2. Loved the way you used the black plaid background -- the black set off the lilies beautifully and the embossing adds that little bit of extra embellishment (without taking away from the lilies).

  3. Beautiful cards. You did inspire me!

  4. Love both! Especially the yellow and black!

  5. Nice project shares for the set. I like the color combinations for the layers.

  6. Both cards are beautiful. I like the second card a bit more. Really love the die-cut background.

    1. Thank you. The black background is made using an embossing folder which gives a subtle but textured background!

  7. Noticed another commenter mention the background and had to take a closer look. I love the embossed background. Lovely card.

  8. Love the cards. The pink outline sets off the card beautifully on the first card. Thanks for sharing
