This was a photo from two years ago - I love tulips and orange ones in particular!
I was delighted when my daughter sent me a tulip stamp for Mothering Sunday last weekend!
I immediately set to and made her a 'thank you' card...
I stamped the image with Versafine and coloured it with Zig real brush pens.
I then trimmed the image and distressed around the edges with 'mowed lawn'.
I simply then added it to a white card base matted with green.
I stamped 'Thank You' directly onto the green card.
Sophie received it the next day!
I then used the stamp again to make some tags. This time I stamped it with Versamark and added green and gold embossing powder roughly to the leaves and flowers.
After heat setting I used a punch to cut oval snippets of the image.
I added scraps of green card onto kraft tags, added the tulip and then the heart strips. This is a digi from LeighSB Designs that I had printed with a green filter and then trimmed to size.
Finally I added the ribbon...
I will add this to Pixies Snippets Playground #321
The final thing I did with the stamp is a set of ATCs for a pocket letter swap:
Again I used 'mowed lawn to distress each of the elements. I used snippets of the tulip image coloured with Zig pens. The clover paper is a digi from Imagine that Digistamps.
I added a scrap of ribbon and the sentiment (a sentiment I once got from From the Heart Stamps)
And now for something completely different - and just to finish off this post...
Another ATC ...
I am a member of the UK Stampers Network - I am looking forward to a Retreat with them next weekend - woohoo!
Anyway one of the challenges we set each other is to use a freebie in some way
- usually 'out of the box'
This freebie was a dog and boots die from Tattered Lace.
I used the larger boot as a 'candle'!!
