Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Mother’s Day Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a video tutorial that I made yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. I made a Mother’s Day Card with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips bundle. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used. Here is my card:

And here’s the Facebook Live video:

I also posted the video to YouTube and you can view it here if you prefer.

I started by embossing a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder. I adhered it to a So Saffron card base with snail. I trimmed the bottom of a strip of Perennial Essence designer series paper with the Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the card with snail.

I stamped one of each tulip flower from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink on Whisper White. I cut out the largest flower with the Tulip Builder punch and fussy cut the other two. I stamped three stems and two leaves using Pear Pizzazz ink on Whisper White and fussy cut them out. I cut a Whisper White Circle using the largest circle in the Stitched Shapes dies and a Soft Sea Foam scalloped circle using the Layering Circles dies. I adhered these together with snail.

I arranged the flowers and stems on the circle and adhered the stems with glue dots. I adhered the small tulips to the circle with multipurpose liquid glue and the large flower with dimensionals. I adhered the stems with multipurpose liquid glue and trimmed the ends. I attached the leaves. I stamped the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz ink on a Stitched So Sweetly die cut Whisper White label. I adhered the circle and label on the card front with dimensionals, including skinny ones under the stems. I finished the card with a Daffodil Delight ruched ribbon bow and a pearl colored with the dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blend.

I stamped another tulip, stem and leaf on a Whisper White panel for the inside of the card. I added a strip of the Perennial Essence DSP to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card with snail.

I love bright yellow tulips in the Spring and I think they’re perfect for Mother’s Day! What will you make for Mother’s Day?

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Love You Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. When I saw all the tulips showing up in the grocery store flower shop, I immediately thought of the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp bundle. But I had to make it a Valentine’s Day Card because it’s just around the corner, so I decided on red tulips with heart designer series paper – the new From my Heart specialty designer series paper.

Here’s the Facebook Live video showing how to make this pretty card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

I started by stamping the tulip flowers on thick Whisper White card stock in Real Red ink. I cut them out with the Tulip Builder punch that comes in the Timeless Tulips bundle. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt stamp set in Real Red ink on a small Whisper White Panel. I stamped the stems and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set in Granny Apple Green. I adhered the panel to a Real Red mat with snail and adhered the Tulips to the card with dimensionals. I finished the panel with a Real Red bow.

I adhered a panel of the Heart DSP from the From My Heart specialty designer series paper to a Real Red card base. I popped the decorated tulip panel on with dimensionals.

I stamped the large tulip flower in Real Red ink on the left side of a Whisper White panel for the inside of the card. I stamped the stem and leaves in Granny Apple Green. I adhered a strip of the Heart DSP to the bottom of the panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail.

Valentine’s Day is less than 4 weeks away and the products in the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog create the cutest cards to say Love You Lots!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Happy Birthday Card

Good Morning on the last day of 2019! Today I have another sneak peek of the pretty Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips bundle that will be available on Friday when the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog becomes available. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence designer series paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base. I cut a panel of Balmy Blue card stock with the Stitched Rectangle die. I stamped three stems and some leaves in Mossy Meadow ink on the die cut panel. I ran it through the Scripty embossing folder.

I stamped 3 of the large tulips from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a panel of Whisper White. I cut out the flowers using the Tulip Builder punch and then colored them with the Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush. I attached them to the embossed panel with dimensionals. It’s too bad the shine from the Wink of Stella doesn’t show very well because the effect is dramatic!

I stamped the happy birthday sentiment on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with another Stitched Rectangle Die. I adhered it to the embossed panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed it with a pink Noble Peacock rhinestone gem. I adhered the panel to the card base with dimensionals.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the tulip flower from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a panel of Whisper White. I brushed the Wink of Stella over it like the flowers on the card front. I added a stem and leaf in Mossy Meadow. I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Perennial Essence DSP. I adhered the decorated panel to the inside of the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I also stamped the tulip, stem and leaves on the left side of a Whisper White Medium Envelope to coordinate with the card.

I love the dark purple tulips in the Springtime, but sadly, there are deer nearby, so I can’t grow them very well. So instead, when the snows melt, I will be greeted by the happy yellow daffodils instead. Can we just skip the snow part?

Have fun and be safe if you are celebrating the New Year’s Eve tonight!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I have another sneak peek of the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set along with the Parisian Blossoms specialty designer series paper and the Parisian Flourish embossing folder. Here is my card:

We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the sketch we are using:

I started by embossing a Petal Pink panel with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder. This embossing folder does cause a little shrinkage, so I trimmed the embossed panel to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ after it was embossed. After trimming, I adhered it to a Petal Pink card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

Next I stamped the 3 medium tulip flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set across a Whisper White panel using Petal Pink ink. Then I stamped the stems and leaves using Pear Pizzazz ink. I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles die. I cut out a panel 0f Parisian Blossoms specialty designer series paper using the two-step die cutting technique with the next larger size Stitched Rectangles die so that it was 1/4″ shorter. I cut a panel of Thick Whisper White paper the same size using the same technique and adhered it to the back of the Parisian Blossoms DSP to make the DSP stiffer. I adhered the DSP to the card with dimensionals.

I stamped a strip of Petal Pink cardstock with the happy birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set in Versamark ink. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I cut it out with the small long label die from the Stitched Rectangles die. I made a bow with the Petal Pink metallic edged ribbon and adhered it to the label with glue dots. I adhered the label to the flower panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the flower panel to the DSP panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I finished the card off with three petal pink sequins.

I decorated the inside of the card by stamping a tulip and stem on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the tulip in Petal Pink after stamping off once and I stamped the leaves and stem in Pear Pizzazz after stamping off twice. I added a strip of the Parisian Blossoms DSP to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The new Mini Catalog has so many beautiful new products to make pretty cards for all the special birthdays coming up! And I love the Champagne metallic touches in the Parisian Blossoms DSP and ribbon – they are so soft and pretty!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Hello Sneak Peek

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. At Stampin’ Up! On Stage a couple of weeks ago, we made a pretty card with the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips bundle that will be available in the new January – June Mini Catalog next month. But my card did not come out very well because I stamped the stems of the tulips before the flowers, so I ended up with a mess. So this project’s purpose is to fix my card. And my card came out much better than the initial one I made at Stampin’ Up! On Stage.

Here’s the Facebook Live video:

I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

I started by stamping the large tulip 3 times in Rococo Rose on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock. Then I stamped the medium tulip 3 times across a Whisper White panel with the bottoms of the flowers about 1/3 the way down from the top. I then stamped the stems for the flowers in Pear Pizzazz. I stamped the last 3 stems for the large tulips, positioning them so that they large tulips would have room on top of the stems. I stamped some leaves to fill in the bottom of the card. Finally, I stamped two leaves in Pear Pizzazz on a scrap piece of Whisper White to be punched out later. I tied linen thread in a bow around the panel and adhered the large tulips and extra leaves with dimensionals. I stamped the hello sentiment on a panel of whisper white and cut it out with paper snips. I adhered the sentiment to the panel with dimensionals and the panel to a Pear Pizzazz card base with dimensionals as well. I finished off the card front with 3 adhesive sequins.

For the inside, I stamped a tulip, stem and leaf on a Whisper White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

Here’s the card I originally made at Stampin’ Up! On Stage. At least the flowers are attached to stems, but they cover each other up and they’re all clumped in the middle, leaving too much white space on the sides. And What’s up with those leaves? Oh Well!! I’m going to make this bad picture small so it’s harder to see.

This one’s much better.

The Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Bundle will be available on January 3 when the new January – June Mini Catalog comes out. It comes with the Timeless Tulips photopolymer stamp set and the Tulip Builder punch. And it has lots of pretty sentiments to celebrate a variety of occasions.
