The prefab pistil and stamens certainly are a timesaver, but if you're so inclined it's easy to make your own: http://theicedqueen.blogspot.com/2012/04/stargazer-lily-pistil-and-stamens.html

Thank you so much! It makes me very happy to hear feedback like that. Motivating! I'll try to have another type of lily up soon. I keep running out of one material or another… ;)

Hi icequeen, your petals and leaves are beautiful, but the pistil and stamen are very incorrect (as are the ones sold by Wilton though); The pistil is much thinner with a little glob on top, and the stamens are almost T-shaped at the ends. Should be simple enough to also make DIY though. I've attached a pic of a real one for reference.

I do like your blog! Lots of very helpful info there--keep it up!

This ws made according to the book directions that come with the flower cutter set. It is a lot of work and beautiful. Here's my version.

I love how you had the closed bud on your stargazer! That's a really nice touch.

I LOVE the bud! It's one of the easiest things you can make, but it really adds a lot, huh? I think it would look really cool on a tiger lily (orange!)
