Tulip Greetings

Hello my dear stampers! Today’s card is a bit different and it’s actually made with the Bird Builder Punch which is retired. ūüė¶ Don’t forget…if you want a retired item, contact me…maybe, just maybe I can find someone selling it.

 

To make the tulips I used the wing of the Bird Builder Punch. I cut long strips of Cucumber Crush to make the stems. The actual card base, some of the tulips and the ribbon are all in Daffodil Delight.

 

This sentiment is a sneak peek at a new die for 2017-2018. I LOVE it!!!

You may notice a little sparkle to the tulips…I brushed the accents with Clear Wink of Stella. It almost makes the tulips look like they have a bit of dew on them.

 

Here’s a close up of that awesome new die! Can you imagine how stunning it would be if you built it up with several layers using another new product…Multi purpose Adhesive Sheets.

We made this card in a class and it was very well received. In fact, one of the gals wanted the Bird Builder Punch to make more of this style card and I found one for her at a very reasonable price.

Inside the Lines 2

Hello Stampers!¬† As promised, here’s another look at the phenomenal Inside the Lines DSP¬†and Watercolor Pencils. I did use the same paper but I’ll also try some others and different¬†layouts.

It was a beautiful day so I took this photo outside in our lemon tree. You can see the lemons peeking through. Love, love, love this paper!

Here’s a close up of the large flower and bee. You can see where my water coloring went out of the lines a bit and I just realized I have a white water color pencil. I’ll see if I can touch it up with that.

I used Wink of Stella on this card to give it some sparkle. I used it on the wings of the bee and all the flowers. Really adds some pizzaz, doesn’t it! Because it was photographed in full sun to get the sparkle it may look a bit washed out.

I love it, especially placed on the black card. Any other color card would have detracted from the vibrant colors of the design.

The products used are very basic…Inside the Lines DSP (free Sale-A-Bration), Black Cardstock, Water Color Pencils, Wink of Stella¬†and Aqua Painters.

This is a short and sweet post! Until Monday…

Happy Stamping!

Easter Lamb

It’s that time again when we¬†celebrate¬†Easter. I just had to use this adorable little lamb from the Occasions Catalog.

Easter Lamb 1

I made this card first and since then several others in different color combinations. I made a couple Easter cards in Blushing Bride and Perfect Plum – they came out darling. Then I used that same combo without the “Happy Easter” and made them into baby cards. Be creative with your stamp sets – don’t get stuck on one theme.

Easter Lamb 2

Of course, we always need to decorate the envelope. Wink of Stella Clear was brushed on the lamb to give it a bit of sparkle. The Cajun Craze marker was used for the “hand stitching” around the frame with a bit of sponging also in Cajun Craze. I actually cut the ribbon in half to make it thinner so as not to overwhelm the lamb.¬†

 

Products Used:

Stamp Sets – Easter Lamb, Botanical Blooms on the envelope

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black, Cajun Craze, Wild Wasabi, Hello Honey

Paper – Whisper White, Cajun Craze, Botanical Gardens DSP

Accessories – Deco Labels Framelits, Stampin’ Write Markers in Wild Wasabi, Cajun Craze & Pink Pirouette, Clear Wink of Stella, Hello Honey Satin Stitched Ribbon

 

This lamb is just so cute and I’ve had such fun using it on different cards. Please send photos¬†your Easter creations and I’ll post them here on my blog.
