Lili of the Valley Stamps & Spellbinders Lacey Oval Dies

Lili of the Valley Stamps Spellbinders Lacey Ovals Dies

Stamps: Best Dress, Milly Just For You, Rosie Posy, Emma Presents & Swing Time

 I received these stamps as gifts and have to say…they are not only adorable but very versatile.  Just for kicks, I  designed a cameo of each of these stamps—adorable as they are without any applications.  But, by using the Spellbinders Lacey Ovals dies-I created an altered variation of a stamp.  I love to do this with my Spellbinders dies which is to create the appearance that the image is running off the die.  If you are not careful, you can end up with a hole in the head of one of your cutie stamped images, and if that happens…’tis only paper—do over!

So, I stamped, embossed, colored (with Copics) and cut out each image leaving no original white background paper.  Then, I glued the images to a clean piece of  cream colored card stock. {No special glue needed very just a few zips of permanent tape runner.) I fit the image into the best size Lacey Oval-taped it with removable tape, ran it through my Grand Calibur (once to cut and once to emboss) and Pop!—this is a new variation of the same image.  It may seem like extra work, but if you stamp and color on basic white card stock—this gives you another alternative to apply the image on any background color you wish! Plus, with it going through the Grand Calibur process, it adheres the image without any loose ends.


  1. Awesome card Susanne. I love LOTV images and love to color them. You did a great job on this beautiful card.
