Tranquil Tulips Card Tutorial

Hi Friends! The "Tranquil Tulips" host reward set is truly stunning. This set is a gift you can choose as part of your host rewards with a qualifying order or party of $200.

Two-step stamp sets, like this one, do all the work for you, with the shading and layering. 

I made this card for my mom and my honey's mom - both who have birthdays in March (my mom's is March 10th and his mom's is March 9th). With Spring on my mind, and knowing how both our mom's enjoy flowers, "Tranquil Tulips" was the ideal set to use on their cards.
I accidentally got a big smudge of ink on the front of this card, so I covered it up with a strip of Wood Textured Designer Series Paper!

  • Real Red Card Base: 11" x 5 1/2", folded in half
  • Whisper White: 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Whisper White scrap pieces for flowers and leaves
  1. Stamp stem image from Tranquil Tulips onto the Whisper White layer, using Garden Green ink pad. Stamp leaves, also with Garden Green ink - repeat on scrap paper and cut out the leaves.
  2. Stamp tulips onto Whisper White card layer using Real Red, Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight ink pads. Stamp the stamen image with Basic Black Archival ink in the middle section of each tulip.
  3. Using Real Red, Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil ink ads, stamp the 'second' tulip layers onto scrap pieces of Whisper White card stock. Cut and adhere to front of card using Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  4. Place the cut out leaves onto card, as desired, with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp sentiment from "Perennial Birthday" set using Black Archival ink.  
  6. Wrap linen thread around Whisper White card stock layer twice, securing in the back with adhesive. Make the bow (video technique for this bow can be found here) and add to card with glue dot.

Here's how I stamped the inside of the cards:
