Casablanca Lily

Today I visited Valita's website (Valita's Fresh Folds) and watched her video on how to make a 3-D Lily.  After watching the video, I had to give it a try.  I used some pearl "stamens" that I purchased from Cherish the Thought in Coquitlam, rather than making the stamens in the video.  I also added a few Cajun Craze dots at the center of the flower so that it looks just like my Casablance Lilies that I grow each year.  This was fun and easy to make and would be a beautiful embellishment on a gift.  Hope you like.

"Casablanca Lily"

Paper:  Whisper White
Ink:  Certainly Celery, So Saffron; Cajun Craze Stampin' Write marker
Accessories:  Medium Oval punch, pearls stems, sponges, bone folder, glue, and sticky strips

I followed Valita's instructions on how to make the 3-D lily - click here to view.


Yesterday I had two friends, Liz and Patt, over for a "High Tea".  We enjoyed tasty treats and had a wonderful visit.  Thanks Liz and Patt for coming over - it was so much fun!!

Here's a few pictures I took of our High Tea.

Oh, Loll, I love high tea and yours looks fabulous! You must be one fabulous cook and talented baker! My favourite high tea in the Vancouver area is The Secret Garden in Kerrisdale - if you love high tea, you should try it some time.
