Who’s ready for Spring to arrive? I know I am! Nothing says Spring more than tulips blooming! I used the Flowering Tulips stamp set along with the coordinating Flowering Fields DSP to make these gorgeous Flowering Tulips Cards.
- Flowering Tulips Stamp Set
- Flowering Fields DSP (cut at 4 3/4” x 3 1/2”)
- Mango Melody Cardstock (5 1/2” x 8 1/2” card base scored in half)
- Soft Succulent Cardstock (cut at 5” x 3 3/4” plus 1/2” x 3 3/4” for sentiment)
- White Cardstock (2” x 5 1/2” and a 5 1/4” x 4” piece for inside the card)
- Ink Pads – Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen, Mango Melody, So Saffron & Pumpkin Pie.
- Evening Evergreen 3/8” Check Ribbon
- Gold Bumblebee Trinkets
- Adhesive & Glue of choice
- Tag Punch (of choice)
- Banner Punch (or scissors)
- Optional: VersaMark Ink, white embossing powder and heat gun
First, I cut all my paper pieces (see measurements in supplies list). I then cut the top of my white cardstock piece with my tag punch and then stamped the tulip images before cutting the bottom with my Banner Punch (but you could also use scissors if you don’t have the punch).
I used Soft Succulent ink for the stems and leaves and Mango Melody with Soft Saffron and Pumpkin Pie with Mango Melody to stamp the the two part tulips (using the lighter colors for the background).
On one card I used VersaMark embossing ink with white embossing powder for the sentiment (I used a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set). On the other card, I used Evening Evergreen ink. I like how they both turned out.
I finished the card off by attaching the bow to the tag, taping all the layers down, and using dimensionals to attach the sentiment and glue to attach the bee. You can also stamp tulips and a sentiment inside the card if you wish.
