Stampin’ Up! Pastel Timeless Tulips CAS

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I did enjoy my weekend off.  It was nice not to have to get up and have to leave for work for a few days.

I have a Clean and Simple spring card for you today.  I’m not sure if I want to use this for a Birthday or Mother’s Day, so I left the sentiment pretty open.  Here’s today’s card.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #365.  These colors just said springtime to me as soon as I saw them.  Here are their colors.

I joined in with Always Fun Challenges #158.  Their theme is “CAS (clean and simple)”.

I started by stamping the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set 5 times on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Mint Macaron Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the stems and a couple on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The leave on the scrap cardstock I cut out using the Tulip Builder Punch.

I stamped the medium tulip image and the small tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on the stems in Highland Heather and Petal Pink Inks.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the punched out leaves to the stems using Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the left side of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to a Thick Whisper White card base using Snail.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Highland Heather Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel 4 times.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on either side of the stems.  I stamped the medium and small tulip images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Highland Heather and Petal Pink Inks on the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set 3 times on the envelope front in Mint Macaron Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on the stems in Mint Macaron Ink.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Highland Heather and Petal Pink Inks on the stems.  I adhered a panel of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Easter

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  Yesterday was such a strange day weather wise here.  It was sunny, then it snowed, sunny again, then the hail came down strong, sunny again, then rain.  All this with heavy gusts of wind all day.  It did not feel like spring at all.  I was able to get one of our traditional Easter dishes made and my niece and nephew stopped by for some.  I handed it out the door to them, keeping a distance.  I can’t wait till this Social Distancing is over, but until then I do what I have to do.

I was all done with Easter cards, mailed all that I had out on Tuesday.  My son’s girlfriend asked me Thursday night if I could make her 3 Easter cards, of course I couldn’t say no.  Here’s one of the cards I made for her.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #588.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Just Add Ink Challenge #500.

I joined in with Inspire. Create Challenge #066.  Here is their Theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink 3 times.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on either side of the stems in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I stamped the largest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set 3 times on the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 1st tulip in Daffodil Delight Ink and sponged the edge using my Sponge Dauber with Melon Mambo Ink.  The 2nd tulip I stamped in Melon Mambo Ink, stamped it off once, then sponged the edge with my Sponge Dauber in Melon Mambo Ink.  The last tulip I stamped in Pumpkin Pie Ink and sponged the edge in Melon Mambo Ink using my Sponge Dauber.  I cut all the tulips out using my Tulip Builder Punch and cut the stem images out using my Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I adhered the tulips to the stamped stem images using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut the sentiment out in Daffodil Delight cardstock using my Word Wishes Dies and adhered it on the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink 3 times on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set twice on the stems in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie Inks on the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Daffodil Delight mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink 3 times on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie Inks on the stem images.  I adhered a panel of Perennial Essence DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Easter

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are having a great weekend.  It’s been raining here all weekend, so it kind of makes staying home easy.  I did have to work for a few hours yesterday and everyone that came to the store was very understanding and patient.

For today’s card I made you an Easter card using the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Bundle and some pretty pastel colors.  Here’s my card for today.

My sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #428.  Here is their sketch.

I played along with Just Add Ink Theme Challenge #498.  Here is their challenge. My “E” is Easter.

I was inspired by “Just Us Girls” Photo Challenge #529.  Here is their photo. Nothing says spring more that a pasture of tulips.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base using Snail.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set 3 times in Mint Macaron Ink.  Using the largest scallop circle die from the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White circle to the scalloped circle using Snail.  I cut a small portion of the circle off to make a straight edge.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the largest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set 3 times in So Saffron Ink which I edged in Petal Pink Ink using my Sponge Dauber.  I punched all 3 tulips out using my Tulip Builder Punch.  I adhered the 2 end tulips to the circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the center tulip using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the edge of the DSP on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow, which I made from the Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon, using a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint macaron Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink a couple times on the stems.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in So Saffron Ink and edged it using my Sponge Dauber in Petal Pink Ink on the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope with the stem and leaf images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink 3 times.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in So Saffron Ink edged with Petal Pink Ink, using my Sponge Dauber, 3 times on the stem images.  I adhered a panel of the Pleased As Punch DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Just a reminder, the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper which is part of the Coordination Products, will only be available until March 31st.  If you are liking this DSP, don’t wait to order it.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and are making the best of the social distancing and quarantined situations by doing some fun crafting.   Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Have you all recovered from the holidays?  I’m still trying, but it’s hard with not having much down time.  I’ve been running around all weekend in between working to pick things up and pack for vacation.  We are finally going on vacation as a family for the 1st time in 18 years.  We leave tomorrow morning for my favorite place, Disney World.  I feel like such a kid all excited.  I think it will be a lot of fun going with 4 adults.  Last time we were there, my son was 6 and my daughter was 3.  I’m not a big ride person, but my husband has booked me with quite a few fast passes on rides.  We’ll see what happens.

For today’s card I used one of the new sets from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog from page 43, the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Bundle.  Here’s my card.

I started by embossing a Seaside Spray card front using the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a strip of Silver Foil Sheet down the middle of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 3 stems from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped 2 of the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the stems.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set twice in Calypso Coral Ink and once in Petal Pink Ink.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the strip of cardstock also.  I punched the tulips out and the leaf out using the Tulip Builder Punch.

I adhered the punched out tulips to the stems on the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Calypso Coral tulips using Glue Dots and the Petal Pink tulip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a small bow using the 1/4″ Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon and adhered it to the stems using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Clear Epoxy Droplets to the artwork.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image and 2 leaf images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on the side of the panel in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the large tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the stem.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped 3 stems and leaves from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the smallest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set on the stems, 2 in Calypso Coral Ink and one in Petal Pink Ink.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
