SFYTT Happy Easter Tulips
Good Monday Morning Peeps!!
Today's card is one I made with Jen's Sketch For You to Try.
I have been seeing these tulips all around that are made with the wing from the large two step bird punch and I wanted to give them a try myself. They are so much fun and cute. Just punch three wings and sponge the edges and layer together to make the tulip. I used the leaf/branch from the same punch for the stems and leaves. Now, I know, in nature the tulip does not have this kind of leaves, but I took a bit of artistic license with this because I wanted to use the punched leaves.
I used pretty in pink, so saffron, certainly celery and almost amethyst for the colors on my card. The DS paper is from the "Tea Party" paper pack. I had really overlooked that pack in the past, but I finally ordered some and I really love the colors, very springy!!!
The sentiment comes from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set. I wish I had a "Welcome Spring" or something like that sentiment in that set, this card really needs a Happy springy sentiment, but it could be a pretty spring birthday card or a Mother's Day card or whatever.
I used the scallop trim edge punch and added some pretty pink checked ribbon at the base of the tulips. The sketch had an accent in the top corner of the circle element so I added some of the pretty in pink satin ribbon on a spiral clip for that.
Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
