Good morning buttercups – or is that tulips?
I’m hopping with my international stamping friends and I know you’re going to love the inspiration to follow! If you’ve hopped from Cindy’s blog – welcome!
Today’s chosen stamp set for the Stamp Review Crew is Timeless Tulips and the coordinating Tulip Builder Punch.
For a little bit of whimsy (in a time when we can’t let life get to serious), I made my flowers into rainbow tulips.
You won’t find these growing in nature – they are dyed with split stems to create this effect, but oh-so-pretty nonetheless! Our local farmer’s market often sells roses with this gorgeous colour pattern.
The tulips were easy to make using the Stamparatus. I added each ink one colour at a time with Sponge Daubers, pressing down between each ink so the colours didn’t blend. The colours are Gorgeous Grape, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight & Melon Mambo for the flowers and Granny Apple Green for the stems.
This stamp set has a coordinating punch – no fussy cutting required and super quick to get all those tulips ready for a cute little bunch. I’ve added some Old Olive splatters on the Whisper White behind the tulips for a touch of texture and tied all the tulip stems together with Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. I’ve left it white , but this ribbon takes colour so easily using Stampin’ Blends or your ink pad.
The DSP for this card is from the Honey Bee Specialty pack which was a reward choice during the 2020 Sale-A-Bration. It was so popular that it’s all gone now, but until Tuesday evening, there’s heaps of other products you can add to your order when you spend $90 or more.
I’m finding myself using hello sentiments a lot lately. Timeless Tulips has a beautiful font and this ‘hello’ looks great heat embossed in black.
To see more tulip projects, please keep hopping. Next blog to visit is my friend Charlet Mallett.
I hope your week is full of pretty colours!
