Technique Junkies Tulips Background

Hello Everyone,
Well, it really seems like Spring is here in good old Michigan, USA.  About 6 weeks early too.  Lots of rain and warmer temps.  A couple daffodils are poking through.  Today's project is all about Spring.  I used a March new release Technique Junkies stamp to make three cards. The stamp is so pretty on its own that I really wanted it to be the focal point.

Stamp: Tulips from Technique Junkies
Ink: Sea Breeze Versa Magic; pink and taupe pigment 
CS: White; pink, aqua, taupe
Clear Embossing Powder
Extra Wide Ribbons

Make It:

  • Make a card from pink, aqua, and/or taupe CS
  • Stamp Tulips on white CS with pigment ink
  • Heat emboss with clear powder

  • Add the Tulip embossed piece to the card base 
  • Add a extra wide luscious bow

  •  I am using the cards for Easter and have added an Easter Sentiment on the inside.  Some good choices from Technique Junkies are: Simple Sentiments 1a and 1b

Here are the pieces before being made into cards.  Isn't that Tulip stamp awesome!!?  I could not stop stamping!!  I also made another card where I punched squares from the background of tulips.  I will share that card with you later.

Hope the projects brought a little Spring into your day.  Check back for the fourth tulip card and I also have a fun flamingo card coming up this month.  See you next time.  Have a super nice day! Love ya
