Stampin’ Up! Tranquil Tulips Happy Day!

Well.  Here we are again.  On Friday.  I don’t know whether to give a big “whoo-hoo” or…worry that I’ll wake up and be 90 tomorrow!  I mean…time is sorta flying by!

Heck – next thing we know…Sale-A-Bration will be over.  Bummer….  The Occasions Catalog will be caput.  Bummer again.

But – the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog will be making an appearance!

And I’ll be getting on a cruise ship to Alaska!

Okay.  I’ve convinced myself.  


But – seriously.  Don’t let Sale-A-Bration get by you, y’all – come join my team – get that crazy good discount!  Earn extra Stampin’ Rewards!  Get all the free SAB goodies!  

Do Not Waste Time!

Okay.  That’s it.  On to the card for today!

It’s a super simple CAS card that I made with the pretty Host-Exclusive set called Tranquil Tulips.  And a quick sentiment from the Happy Birthday Thinlits and the Sale-A-Bration set Happy Wishes (free in Wood or Clear with a $100 purchase). Take a look-see:

For the layout, I borrowed from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Sweethearts and Tulips for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  Although a few ladies are off on vacation, we’ve still got some fun projects for y’all.  

We had a color challenge this week – and here ’tis.  Pretty!

My card is the result of more mind changing and dithering.  I had a sketch in my head – but when I started actually making the card…about all I stuck with was the Sweetheart TIEF and the Tranquil Tulips.  When it came right down to it – I used a sentiment from the Lovely Words Thinlits and some Eastern Palace Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of the Lemon Lime Twist paper from the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP as a mat (yes – a paper mat!).  The card front itself is a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock that I embossed in the new Sweetheart TIEF.  Using a Sweet & Sassy Framelits die (it’s the one that cut the entire un-embossed heart out of the panel!), I cut the heart out of the panel and SNAILd the whole thing to the Eastern Palace DSP.

Stampin’ Up! Marbled Tranquil Tulips

Happy Hawwmp day, y’all, from sunny/rainy/cloudy/sunny/breezy/humid/pleasant/rainy Florida.  The weather has been changeable at best!  Humid almost always.  Much more so than I like, to be honest.

And the no-seeums are everywhere! And –  I can totally see-um.  So why the name?  It’s kinda dumb.

My card for today is very springy-summery.  And uses a lovely new Host Set – the Tranquil Tulips set.  On top of that – or on the bottom, as the case my be – I used the new Marbled background stamp.  I love background stamps!  Take a look-see:

My layout – and the tulips –  are inspired by the sketch and photo at the Fusion Challenge.

And the color scheme (even though it really works with the Fusion picture, too!) is from The Paper Players challenge.

I started by sponging Pool Party and Daffodil Delight ink onto the Marbled Background stamp using my Sponge Daubers.  I didn’t do a lot of planning on where I was putting color – just kind of randomly sponged it on.  Then I stamped it onto a Whisper White panel for my card front.  It’s a very soft color scheme!

I SNAILd the Marbled panel to a Daffodil Delight mat.

For my art work, I cut a smaller piece of Whisper White card stock and used my Paper Trimmer to create the angled bottom.  

Then I started stamping flowers!  Both the tulip and the small blue flower are two-step images.  I stamped the Tranquil Tulip tulip in Daffodil Delight and the smaller flower in Pool Party – both steps in the same color.  The stamps themselves create the shading!  I did use my Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker to darken the small flowers a little!

I stamped the stems in Lemon-Lime Twist and called it good on the flowers!

To make the “lace” border, I used the new Decorative Ribbon Border punch to cut out a few strips of Whisper White.  I snipped them to size and used Liquid Glue to adhere them on the backside of my panel.  Then I popped the whole thing over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it off,  I tied a little bow from the new Lemon-Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon and attached it with a Glue Dot.  I dithered a little about adding another embellishment of some sort, but decided to leave it clean.  So, that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I added a few more Tranquil Tulip flowers in Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Lemon-Lime Twist on a Whisper White panel.  And I added a sentiment from the Feather Together stamp set – stamping it in Lemon-Lime Twist.

I matted the panel on Daffodil Delight and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more Tranquil Tulip flowers on the front…

…and a little more of the Daffodil Delight and Pool Party Marbled Background on the envelope flap.  Plus a few more Pool Party flowers (I gave each of them a quick “stem” with my Lemon-Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker)!

Et Voila!  I think the Marbled Background stamp, done in Daffodil Delight and Pool Party is a beautiful, soft base for the pretty Tranquil Tulips, don’t you?  Hope you like!
