Hi! It's Therese and I have a fun Take 2 With Therese video sharing the same card design but with two different versions. But first, I am thrilled to announce the latest in our popular layering stamp and die series with our Build-A-Flower: Queen of the Lilies Layering Stamp & Die Set Release Blog Hop.

Want 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 layout.
