Hello friends. Today is all about flowers, and tulips at that! I am using the Stampin' Up! Flowering Tulips bundle from the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue. In Australia we are now into Autumn and I will soon be planting my tulips and other bulbs for my Spring and Winter flowers.
The Flowering Tulips bundle includes a stamp set and a set of dies which cuts out images, but also includes some dies to make 3D tulips, including layering petals for three different tulips, the flower stem and leaves.
On this card I have also used the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper. When a paper is quite bold as this one is, I often use vellum to soften some of the paper. That provides me with a focal point for the flower. To adhere the vellum, I used a cotton bud to smear a really thin layer of Multipurpose Glue on the paper until it was just tacky, and then placed the vellum on top. It adheres without the glue being visible through the vellum.
My flower is cut with Petal Pink cardstock and the petals sponged with Poppy Parade, to coordinate with the colours in the paper. My base card is Pool Party. To embellish my card I have used Linen Thread and Artistry Blooms Adhesive Backed Sequins.
If you like this card, you can still get my Flowering Tulips class as a PDF purchase anywhere worldwide on my Stamp at Home Classes page. It contains step by step instructions and measurements for this card and 5 other Flowering Tulips cards.
The Flowering Tulips stamp set has some great greetings, including the circle greeting I have used.
