Today I used a stamp set I just received for my birthday. I love the Gina K Designs Spring Tulips mini set, so I chose that set for a gift.
I saw this idea on Pinterest where the originator places the tulip set above and below the greeting, so I wanted to try her method. I love the outcome. I colored the tulips and leaves with Spectrum Noir markers. After coloring, I placed the colored layer back in my MISTI and stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink embossing with clear powder. It brought the lines back and gave it a bit of shine. I used Spellbinders dies to cut the image and black layer, then mounted on a white card base.
I am adding this to the fourseasons: April Spring Challenge. Tulips are Spring Flowers so it fits that challenge. I am adding this to Seize the Birthday, Signs of Spring.
I made this card for the Gina K Designs Monthly Mix Challenge.
Stamp sets used: Tropical Blooms, A Beautiful Life
The paper is Lawn Fawn, Gotta Have Gingham (retired). I added the black layer when it the frame looked odd on the blue background. The black made a difference. The card base is My Favorite Things card stock. I have a set of many colors and just flip through till I have a match.
Here is the card I made last year with this stamp set.
I used two Dynamic Duos on this card. The first is Peonies and Tulips and the second is Foxglove and Ranunculus for the sentiment. The Kraft cardstock is from Gina K Designs, the white and pink are both SU- Naturals White and Pink Pirouette, and the patterned paper is Flower Market from Carta Bella. I added sparkle to the pink cardstock and the tulips with a Crafter’s Companion sparkle pen. I colored the tulips with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.
