Good Morning! April Showers Bring May Flowers! I have been saying this every year since I was a child. We had some rain last weekend and it’s still cool here in Pennsylvania, so I’m grateful it wasn’t snow. But daffodils are blooming and soon the tulips will be as well, so it’s time for tulip cards. I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips bundle for a thinking of you card in my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon to make this card. You can find the supplies I used in my video at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
Here is the link to the Facebook Live video from yesterday. I also posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel and you can view it here if you prefer. I’ve included it in this post:
I cut a Basic White panel with the second largest Scalloped Contours dies and adhered a panel of the beautiful Flowering Fields designer series paper to the front. I cut a Poppy Parade panel with the three tulip dies – the wide triple panel petals, the medium double petal panel and the small single petal pane. I adhered the small single petal panel to the inside of the triple panel with liquid glue. I put bits of dimensionals on the top of the medium panel and liquid glue on the bottom and adhered it to the middle and folded over the side panels of the large panel, securing the bottom with liquid glue.
I cut the skinny stem and adhered it to the DSP with the fine tip glue pen. I adhered the tulip flower on top of the stem with glue dots and cut one of each of the leaf dies from the Tulips dies in the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips bundle and adhered them on either side of the stem with glue dots. I adhered the panel to the front of a Pool Party card base with dimensionals.
I punched the ends of the Petal Pink panel with the curly side of the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips stamp set in Poppy Parade on top. I adhered the sentiment to the card front with dimensionals and made a bow with sheer Pool Party ribbon. I adhered the bow to the stem with a glue dot and finished the card with Pool Party Rhinestones.
For the inside of the card, I stamped two tulips from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips stamp set in Flirty Flamingo on the sides of a Basic White panel. I stamped the detailed stamp over the stamped tulips in stamped off Flirty Flamingo and added Memento Tuxedo Black flower centers and Pear Pizzazz stems and leaves. I trimmed the bottom with Flowering Fields DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
Both the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips bundle and Flowering Fields DSP are beautiful items that are perfect for spring cards. And they’re so versatile, and result in beautiful hand crafted items.
For my Facebook live, I had a sample card with a Basic White flower that was sponged with Petal Pink for a very light pink card. Here it is with the card I made in the video. I think I like them both.
