Floral Friday: Goodbye Tranquil Tulips

Today for my Floral Friday feature I’m saying goodbye to the set Tranquil Tulips, this has been my favourite host stamp set from the 2017 – 2018 Annual catalogue as tulips are one of my favourite flowers. I’m still waiting for mine to appear in my garden but in the meantime I’ve enjoyed making these two cards:

berry burst tranquil tulips

This first card uses shades of Berry Burst and Old Olive. The first layer was done with second generation ink from the Berry Burst. A simple greeting from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and some background paper from the Color Theory DSP Stack finish off the front of  this simple card.

On the inside I added another stamped tulip and a matching strip of paper just  to add an extra touch.

For the blue version I used Dapper Denim and Old Olive and stamped on the crackle glaze paper. To add some extra dimension to this card I stamped the second layer of the tulip petals on a separate piece of paper and layered them up with Dimensional’s. The greeting and label image on this card come from the Rose Wonder stamp set another of my favourites which is retiring.

Hope you enjoyed todays project.

Happy Crafting

Masculine Birthday Card with Eastern Beauty stamp set

Today’s card was inspired by challenge #089 over at Global Design Project which was to use the colours Basic Black, Old Olive and Calypso Coral, sadly I didn’t manage to enter as I struggled with this combo but here is my card:

I really didn’t want to make a floral card so it took me a while to come up with an idea and it was Eastern Beauty to the rescue. I just started stamping and came up with this pattern.

I used the new Ticket Tear Boarder punch to an interesting edge to the stamped panel and I used the Old Olive ombre paper from the Colour Theory DSP stack as a background on the Basic Black card base.

The greeting comes from the Rose Wonder stamp set and was cut out with the Rose Garden Framelits.
