Timeless elegance with the Nature’s Garden Lily Collection

Crafter's Companion – 18/02/20

Lilies are an elegant, timeless classic that are a crowd favourite for a whole variety of occasions and you can bring a touch of sophistication inspired by this flower into your projects with the Nature’s Garden Lily Collection! With dies, paper pads, stamps and even brand new shades of flower forming foam, this is a range that has been designed to provide you with a wide variety of products to add a sumptuous look to your pieces.

For today’s blog post, we thought we’d give you a bit of an introduction to the range and share a little bit of inspiration to help you get those creative cogs turning. Take a look at all of the beautiful photos below and our hints, and see where your creativity takes you!

As the name would suggest, the Nature’s Garden Lily Collection is centred around the lily flower and features stunning florals, soft watercolour images and gorgeous sentiments that have all been designed to work together to help you create completely cohesive projects.

One element of the collection that would be ideal for bringing a touch of 3D charm to your projects is the Beautiful Lilies Stamp and Die set. By creating the petals and leaves included in the set, you’ll be able to build up layered flowers for the front of your cards, like the one that you see above! This is such a simple design that features patterned paper, sequins and a sentiment, but it’s the flowers that steal the show.

If you want to take your 3D flowers one step further, you can use the new shades of Flower Forming Foam to create realistic petals that simply bloom from the page. With pastel pink, green and white that’s ideal for colouring, these shades are ideal for springtime projects.

For those of us who love to collect pretty paper pads, you’re going to love this one. As well as patterned papers, it also contains printed vellum, which is perfect for using on a variety of projects like the abstract and mystical shaker card above. The sequins are slightly hidden by the vellum, making the shaker effect a bit more ethereal.

Of course, an essential part of any of our collections is the dies, and you can expect lots of feminine designs as part of this range. Take a look at the card above, which has the Fancy Butterflies and Lace Border die-cuts in action. The overall effect is so stunning, but so simple, which is exactly what the Lily Collection is all about!

To add extra depth and dimension to your papercraft projects, you need to give the Decadent Lilies 3D Embossing Folder a go! The design features punchy lily flowers laid over a cross-hatched background, so it’s perfect for using as a panel. The space with no lilies is just crying out for a sentiment or embellishment! As it’s a fairly neutral design, it’s also perfect for a variety of occasions, so try it out on wedding stationery, birthday cards and more.

If pink isn’t your thing, you can try delving into the other colours within this palette. How stunning is this yellow and earthy coloured gift bag in the image above? We love the look of the frame die-cut on top of the abstract art background, especially paired up with the khaki ribbon handles!
