Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends Happy February!!! A new month already. We’re halfway through the week and on our way to the weekend. I’m still trying to wrap my head around it being February already. Winter usually goes very slow for me since I hate the cold. We’ll see tomorrow what the ground hog has to say about winter staying or spring around the corner.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge from The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo #188 is Floral Valentine.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Flowering Tulips 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet Photopolymer Stamp Set and the 2021-2023 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered card today. I was inspired by the colors, the tulips in the photo and the overall theme this week.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge 188.  How are you inspired by the photo?

Stampin' Up! Flowering Tulips 2

I started by adhering a panel of 2021-2023 In-Color DSP to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Sweet Sorbet card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the tulip stem from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink 3 times and the leaf image 3 times. I stamped the smaller tulip image from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Polished Pink Ink. I stamped the details image full strength and the fill image stamped off once on scrap paper. I stamped the larger tulip image from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink, stamping it the same as I did for the smaller tulip. I cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Country Bouquet stamp set on the top of the die cut panel in Tuxedo Black Ink.

I adhered the artwork to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Polished Pink 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon around the layered panel and tied a bow. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Country Bouquet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the tulip image from the Flowering Tulips stamp set on the bottom of the panel stamping the stem in Parakeet Party Ink and the tulip in Polished Pink Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Polished Pink mat then to the inside of the Sweet Sorbet card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tulip images from the Flowering Tulips stamp set on the envelope front in Polished Pink, Sweet Sorbet and Parakeet Party. I adhered a panel of 2021-2023 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your Demonstrator. Just click HERE to go directly to my online store or drop me an email if you have any questions. 


Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately, packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials.  Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.

Please remember to use my current Host Code and make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me, and you’ll get my rewards! 

Happy Stamping, Karen


In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.
