Hi, Stampers. Welcome to a new week! When I first opened up this Flowering Tulips bundle, I wished the dies came with instructions. Therefore, I’m making sure that YOU (as my customers) have the directions for assembling these dies. (See the guide under the photos and pin it to Pinterest, so you don’t lose it).
Here is one of the cards I made using the Tulips Dies. This card starts with a Highland Heather card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next up is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS that has been dry embossed using the Gingham Embossing Folder.
I tied a knot in two pieces of the Evening Evergreen Windowpane ribbon and wrapped it around this layer. It’s attached to the back with mini glue dots – before it was attached to the card base.
I assembled the tulips, based on the image below and glued them to the card front and added a few of the Brushed Brass Butterflies. (On this card I used the Simply Marbelous DSP from Sale-a-Bration, but there are many DSPs or CS that would work just as well.)
Inside the card is another 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS. I stamped the sentiment in Highland Heather ink, in the center. In the lower right corner I stamped the leaves and stem to the flower in Garden Green. The tulip is done in 3 steps (3 stamps) in Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape inks.
This is an alternate version I did using Pear Pizazz, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape and Fresh Freesia cardstocks. The leaves have been sponged with Pear Pizazz ink. Did you notice the detail on the tulips? That was done by sponging ink onto the CS before removing the dies – like a stencil. How fun is that?!?
