Happy Tulip Card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and different take on stamping tulips with the Timeless Tulips Bundle! When it comes to flowers, I usually use Google Images when I’m looking for inspiration, which did give my inspiration for today’s card! I didn’t want to just stamp a color WW or VV cardstock, so I thought I would try colored cardstock just to see if it would even work, and I really liked it! I first tried stamping Poppy Parade ink on Mango Melody cardstock and then stamped on Petal Pink and So Saffron cardstocks, which gave me the tulips for this card because I really liked how the Poppy Parade ink looked slightly different with each cardstock.

The base layer for this card is Crumb Cake cardstock, cut at 4” x 4 ¾”, and embossed with the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Stamp the large tulip in Poppy Parade ink on Mango Melody, Petal Pink, and So Saffron cardstocks and punch out with the coordinating punch.

2. Use the “straight” stem to stamp two times on Soft Sea Foam cardstock in Mossy Meadow ink. Fussy cut both out and then trim on stem down and cut the other one so that you have three stems at different lengths.

3. Use the leaf stamp to stamp on Soft Sea Foam cardstock in Mossy Meadow ink two times, once in Poppy Parade ink on Mango Melody cardstock, and then punch out with the coordinating punch.

4. Cut a 6” piece of Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon, color with the Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends, and then tie into a bow (use however much ribbon you need to tie into a bow):

5. Using the sentiment from the stamp set, use Petal Pink, So Saffron, and Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Markers only on the HAPPY, stamping on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, and then cut out with the second smallest Layering Squares Die.

On the embossed base layer, I first adhered two of the stems, the Mango Melody and Petal Pink tulips, the Mango Melody petal, and one of the leaves behind the Petal Pink tulip:

I then adhered the last stem, So Saffron tulip, and the last leaf:

Trim off the excess stems, adhere the bow with glue dots, and the sentiment with mini dimensionals. This completed piece is then adhered to a Soft Sea Foam cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside sentiment, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ½”, stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink, stamp the top of the stem in Mossy Meadow ink, and then stamp the medium tulip in Poppy Parade ink:

So, what do you think of the tulips? Do you like them stamped on colored cardstock or do you prefer Whisper White or Very Vanilla? Since tulips come in a variety of colors, you could even do tone-on-tone stamping with colored cardstock!

Timeless Tulips Get Well Card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which features the Timeless Tulips Bundle! This distinktive stamp set not only has some great sentiments for different occasions, but also has a coordinating punch! This is a great way for you to build up your tulips without a lot of work! I chose to make this card a “get well card” because who wouldn’t love to get a beautiful card when you’re not feeling all that great! For the bouquet, I did some “fussy cutting”, which is pretty easy with this stamp set.

The base layer is this design from the 2019-2021 In Color 6” x 6” DSP in Terracotta Tile, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Stamp the large tulip stamp in Calypso Coral ink on Whisper White cardstock two times and punch out with the coordinating punch.

2. Stamp the medium tulip in Terracotta Tile ink on Whisper White cardstock two times and fussy cut out.

3. Stamp the small tulip in Grapefruit Grove ink on Whisper White cardstock two times and fussy cut out.

4. Use enough Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to tie into a bow.

5. Stamp both stem stamps in Old Olive ink on Whisper White cardstock two times and fussy cut out.

6. Stamp each of the leaf stamps in Old Olive ink on Whisper White cardstock one time each, punch out the one coordinating leaf with the punch, and fussy cut the other two out.

7. Stamp the sentiment in Terracotta Tile ink on a ½” piece of Whisper White cardstock, snip off at the end, and use the Banner Triple Punch on the other end.

8. Use a ¾” x 1 ¾” piece of Old Olive cardstock for layering under the sentiment and use the Banner Triple Punch on one end.

First, I layered the stems where I wanted them and then adhered them with liquid glue:

Next, I adhered the two medium tulips with liquid glue and the small and large tulips with dimensionals:

I then adhered the other two tulips and one of the leaves with dimensionals:

Finally, I adhered the last two leaves with liquid glue:

The tulle bow is adhered to the “bouquet” with a dab of liquid glue, the sentiment pieces are adhered together, and then adhered to the base layer. This completed piece is adhered to an Old Olive cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Terracotta Tile ink, and adhere a ¾” strip of DSP along the bottom:

Don’t you just love this stamp set?? Especially since tulips come in a variety of colors, it is so easy to create a bouquet in your favorite colors! If you don’t like to fussy cut, it is very easy to stamp the stems and tulips and then build up with the punch for the large tulip and leaves! This bundle will be available for purchase starting January 3rd, so don’t forget to add this to your list for the 2020 Mini Catalog!!
