Lovely Tulips in Two Designs

Hello Junkies!
Karen McAlpine with you today.  And hopefully I will bring a little Spring into your day.  I have been stamping and stamping with this March new release large stamp, Tulips.  The stamp is so pretty on its own, I wanted it to be the focal point of the projects.

Stamp: Tulips from Technique Junkies
Ink: Sea Breeze Versa Magic; pink and taupe pigment inks
CS: White; pink, aqua, taupe
Clear Embossing Powder
Extra Wide Ribbons

Make It:
  • Make a card from pink, aqua, and/or taupe CS
  • Stamp Tulips on white CS with pigment ink
  • Heat emboss with clear powder

  • Add the Tulip embossed piece to the card base 
  • Add a extra wide luscious bow
  •  I am using the cards for Easter and have added an Easter Sentiment on the inside.  Some good choices from Technique Junkies are: Simple Sentiments 1a and 1b
********In the second design, I punched squares from the Tulips.

Materials List:
Stamp: Tulips from Technique Junkies
Ink: Summer Sky Memento
CS:White; Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, and Pacific Point from Stampin' Up
Edge Punch

 Make It:

  • Make a card from Marina Mist CS
  • Stamp the Tulip with Summer Sky ink on white CS
  • Use a punch to punch out squares

  • Layer each Tulip square on a rectangle of Pacific Point CS
  • Punch a strip of Bashful Blue CS along one edge and add to card base
  • Add the large rectangle with the Tulip squares to the card
  • Add ribbon and pearls

So, two very fun ways to use this lovely new Tulip stamp.  Hope you enjoyed the Spring projects!  Check out all the March New Releases here.  See you next time.
