Floral Friday: Timeless Tulips Card Duo

For today’s Floral Friday post I’m highlighting the Timeless Tulips stamp set. Tulips are one of my favourite flowers but I actually don’t like red ones. So today’s cards are featuring red tulips in Poppy Parade.

I’ve paired my red tulips with the Stitched Nested Dies and the Forever Greenery Designer Paper.

Timeless Tulips 1

This first card is just simple stamping on the largest Stitched Nested Label with just the centre tulip popped up on some dimensionals. I’ve left sentimetns off this card so it can be used for any occassion.

Timeless Tulips 2

For the second card I added in the one of the new Greenery Mini Embossing Folders to add some texture to the background.

I like these cards but I’m still not a fan of red tulips.

Two Ways With Triangles

I didn’t think I’d love the Stitched Triangle Dies as much as I do but they are amazing and definitely one to add to your collection. I love how you can link them togther to create a patchwork effect, create bunting of many sizes or just use them in a random pattern seperatley like I have here.

5 Triangle card

For both of these cards I use a card base measuring 13.9cm x 10.5cm, slightly smaller than my normal cards bases, so the largest Stitched Rectangle Die fits comfortably on the card front. I then cut out five random triangles out of my rectangle. I used the thick Whisper White cardstock to do the triangle to add some stability to this layer. I then stamped the greeting from So Senitmel in Memento Tuxedo Black, using washie tape to cover half the greeting so only Thank You was stamped.. To finish the card I filled in my triangle windows with 2020-2022 In-Colour Designer Paper.

Triangle Lines Card

For the second card I used the die with the long line of triangles and cut five rows. I colour each one with a strip of In-Colour cardstock on the back, I secrured the strips in place with tear and tape. I added the same sentiment, stamped in full on the largest of the Tasteful Labels Dies.

I really love how these cards turned out and can’t wait to play more with the Stitched Triangles.

Floral Framed For You Card

I love stamp sets that have little flowers and leaves so you can create quick and simple backgrounds just by randomly stamping. Thats one reason the Framed For You stamp set has been one of my first cgoices from the new catalogue, alongside the floral images there are some great sentiments and that great frame image which works perfectly with our Layering Squares Dies.

For this card I used a bold colour combination of Gorgeous Grape, Just Jade, Pool Party and Cinnamon Cider and I love how these colours look together.

I love how this turned out and think its a great design you could mass produce easily to build your card stash, its also one where you could change up the colours easily.

Dandelion Wishes Watercolour Card

This card is a mix up of many techniques, I’m not 100% sure I like the end result but I had fun playing and thats whats most important.  For my main image I stamped one of the dandelions from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set in Versamark and embossed with Silver Stampin Emboss Powder, the image sunk a little into my card which was the Fluid 100 watercolour card, so maybe I need to this with the Shimmery White cardstock instead. I then created a Highland Heather wash with diluted reinker and washed this over the image, I do like how this turned out.

For the background I ran some Highland Heather cardstock through the Old World Paper Embossing Folder. I added a greeting on a label created from the Ornate frames dies and to finish the card a ruffled a length of ribbon from the Playing with Patterns combo pack.

Cabana & Calypso Under My Umbrella Card

I’m hoping today’s card will chase away the rain and bring us some sunshine as I’d love to wear something other than wellies when I’m outisde. Hopefully the bright fun colours of Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral will tempt that sunshine out.

Under My Umbrella Calypso Card (1)

Some punching and a little fussy cutting and you have this cute little card, perfect for sending to someone you haven’t seen for awhile to let them know you care.
