Timeless Flowering Tulips – Happy Easter

Continuing to play…

…the Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge (#463), the Tic Tac Toe Challenge (#152) for Theme, Color and Tools, the Flower Challenge (#66) for Subject and the Happy Little Stampers Challenges (March) for Tools – Stencils and Dies.

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Highland Heather cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (4⅛” x 5⅜”) retired Purple Posy cardstock.
  • Accent Panels: (1¼” x 3¼”) Gorgeous Grape cardstock die-cut three (3) times with a rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies set.
  • Stenciled Panels: (⅞” x 2⅜”) Basic White cardstock.
    • Highland Heather ink was applied with a Brayer to a quarter sheet (4¼” x 5½”) of Basic White cardstock.
    • On a waterproof mat, the Floral stencil from the Butterflies and Flowers Layering Decorative Masks set was laid over top of the colored sheet.
    • With the Stencil in place, the panel was sprayed with water using the Stampin’ Spitzer.
    • The panel was then covered with a Paper Towel to absorb the excess water, creating the stenciled pattern.
    • This technique was recently illustrated by Melody over at the Facebook group: Stampin’ Through the Catalog.
    • Once the panel was dry, the three (3) smaller focal panels were die cut with a rectangle die from the same Dies set.
  • Sentiment Cross Strip: (4⅛” x 1⅜”) Purple colored scrap piece of patterned paper from the now retired Sale-a-bration Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper pack.
    • The sentiment, Happy Easter, Happy Spring…, from the Timeless Tulips stamp set was stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink.
  • Focal Image Shape – Tulips: Scrap Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper and Pear Pizzazz card stock from my bin.
    • Several of the Tulip Builder pieces from the Tulip Dies set were die-cut from left over pieces of Simply Marbleous patterned paper.
    • The dimensional Tulips were created by folding the die-cuts and adding the other die-cut pieces in place.
    • The Leaves and Stems, from the Flowering Tulips stamp set were stamped with Pear Pizzazz ink on to Pear Pizzazz paper scraps.
    • The Leaf and Stem images were die-cut with the coordinating dies from the Tulip Dies set.

All of the elements were adhered to the card base to match the sketch.  The stenciled panels were cut at (1¼”) and adhered to give the illusion that they were longer and the split was covered with the sentiment cross strip.

Purple is not one of my go to colors.  Yet, I really like how this card came together.  I think I have fallen in love with the Tulip Dies.  Those flowers are so pretty!
