Timeless Tulips for The Spot Color Challenge #103

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the card that I made for this week's Color Challenge over at The Spot.  This week we have a super fun color challenge for you to play along with and it's perfect for Springtime.  I used the Timeless Tulips Bundle to create my card for today's colorful challenge.  I thought it matched perfectly with the colors that were put together.  Here's a look at my card.


And here's a look at this week's color challenge that inspired my card today.  You can click on the challenge image to play along or (click here) just to see what all the other design team members came up with.

Tips & Tricks: 

I picked five of the six colors to create my card with today.  I went with Blushing Bride, Grapefruit Grove, Rococo Rose, Early Espresso and Soft Sea Foam.  I wanted to create something that was very springy in feel so I thought those colors would be fun to play with.  I also picked the Timeless Tulips Bundle to feature on my card because I thought it would lend itself to a very spring filled card.  
Once the colors and stamp set were picked it was pretty easy to move forward


Then it was just a matter of figuring out how I wanted to use the items.  I decided that I would make a springtime bouquet on my card and make it an encouragement card.  I thought it was a great time for a card like this with everything going on right now.  So I started out my stamping all my stems in a grouping to mimic a bundled bouquet.  Then I needed to stamp my tulips.  I stamped three on them directly on the card and then two I used the matching punch to punch them out.  For the triumph tulip I stamped the leaf in the that matches the punch twice.  One I did mirror stamping and then punched it out.  On that tulip I actually inked it up first with Blushing Bride and used a sponge dauber to go around the outside with Rococo Rose to create a darker area as well.    I repeated the inking process on the other tulip that I punched as well.  I just changed the starting color to Grapefruit Grove instead of the Blushing Bride.  I kept the Rococo Rose around the outside to create the two tone.  


I popped those two tulips up on a couple Stampin' Dimensionals to add a little height to the card.  Next I needed something to bond the bundle together so I decided to use the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon but died it with a little Early Espresso ink, a clear block and a baby wipe.  Once I had the ribbon die I tied it into a bow and added it to the card front.  I added my sentiment in Early Espresso Classic Ink at the bottom left of the card front.  


I added the card front on to a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock cut at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  And, then added the entire thing to my Soft Seafoam Card base.  I decided at this point that I did a little more dimension to the card so I stamped one more leaf in Soft Sea Foam and punched it out and added it to the card with a little liquid glue and a dimensionals behind.  


Thanks for dropping by today, and I hope that you will play along with use this week over at The Spot.  We have fun cardmaking and paper crafting challenges every week.  So make sure you go and check it out and have a little fun.  If you need any of the supplies you have seen today you can pick them up in my online store 24/7 by clicking on the items in the shopping list below.

Stampin’ Up! Pleased As Punch Get Well Soon Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card I made during my Facebook Live yesterday using some of the new Coordination Product Release that will be going live February 4, 2020.  These products are only around until March 31, 2020 or While Supplies Last only.  Once they are sold out they will be sold out.  For my card today I used the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper and the Timeless Tulips Bundle to create my get well soon card.  Here's a look at my card.

Dress up your paper crafts with the flowers, hearts, raindrops, and other patterns from the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper. Great card making paper, scrapbooking paper, and more. This pack of designer series paper was designed to coordinate with  stamps, punches, and other products from the January-June Mini Catalog.  The exact products that this pack of DSP coordinates with are as followed; Tulip Builder Punch, Heart Punch Pack, Umbrella Builder Punch, and the Small Bloom punch (Saleabration), and their coordinating Stamp Sets.
I used the Timeless Tulips stamp set for my sentiment on my card and the Tulip builder Punch to punch out the leaves and tulips from the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper.  I will tell you that to get the perfect punch out with some of the designs you may have to cut around them or cut them out smaller.  The designs are not arranged as the builder punches are laid out.  To dress up my card a little bit I add a bow made from the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels.  I thought that the polka dots was a fun match for the striped background of the designer series paper.
