Spring Tulips

Happy Spring!

This basket full of Spring Tulips would have taken forever if I had tried to mask all the flowers and leaves.

Instead, I stamped the leaves and stems one over the other (no masking). Then stamped cut out tulip flowers and extra leaves and arranged them on top of the stamped layer of leaves and stems. This made it much easier to “arrange” my bouquet. Adding pop dots to some of the flowers and leaves also added lots of dimension to the card. Below are some photos of how I created this card.

Basket-of-Tulips by Kitchen Sink Stamps

I started this card by stamping Step #1 of the basket. This gave me a base/area to build my tulip bouquet.step-1 With masking tape, I taped off the sides and bottom of the basket. step-2

Stamped overlapping stems and leaves. step-3

Removed the masking tape and filled in empty spaces with more leaves that had been cut out. Once I got all the loose leaves in place, I taped them all down below the top of the basket. Then stamped the brush stroke “shadow” at the bottom of the basket.
step-4

Finally, I added a fully stamped cutout of the basket on top of all the tulips, leaves and stems for a finished bouquet.step-5NOTE: I realized after I finished the card, I should have cut away the “back side” of the basket so the tulips would look more like they are in the basket instead of behind the basket…oh well! LOL!Basket-of-Tulips-CLSUPThanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

Gold at the end of the Rainbow

Happy Monday!

Have another “Pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow” card to share. This one took its inspiration from Splitcoast Sketch Challenge SC581.

I didn’t have any pattern papers with a St. Patrick’s Day theme, so I created my own using Plaid Plus and Multi-Step Paint Splatters
