Remarkable Paper Pieced Calla Lly

This was my favorite card from class last month - I love the sharp contrast of colors and how that calla lily just pops off the paper.  You get the look by stamping the lily image on your card face (the blue sheet) and then stamping again on white and cutting it out of the white and gluing to the blue.


Card made with the Calla Lilies from Stampin'UP!'s Remarkable You Stamp set.

Calla Lilies are white (these are from a set called Remarkable You) so I felt they needed to be on a colored background. In this photo you can see our steps to create this look

  • First we stamped the Calla Lilies, to get the general placement on the paper
  • Then we overstamped with the leaves - wow, what a mess!
  • Then we stamped the flowers again on white paper, cut them out and glued them to the blue piece
Voila! Stunning, really makes them "pop" doesn't it.

And see here what a difference it makes when you use a marker to color the leaves.

The finishing touches:  The Baker's Twine and Pearls are a couple of nice finishing touches. And there's one more thing that doesn't show up well in the previous photos but you can see it a little better below. I used Shimmery White Paper for the flowers. It gives a subtle but very effective sparkle to the Callas.
