Welcome and I’m glad you have had a chance to visit me at my blog, Stamping Flair today. The Joy of Sets Blog Hop participants are showcasing Easter and Spring projects this month so I’m sure there’ll be lots of pastels, bunnies and other cute projects.
I combined both themes by creating flowers for spring with a sentiment for Easter.
The two-tone tulips from Timeless Tulips were created by inking up the stamp in Mango Melody. Then I used a sponge dauber to ink around the edges in Lovely Lipstick. The leaves used the same technique with Granny Apple Green and Call me Clover,
The Country Home stamp set is a favourite of mine and I think this tin can makes a really great vase for the tulips. I stamped the can in Smoky Slate and then coloured it in Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. A panel of black and white striped Honey Bee Sale Specialty DSP from the Sale-A-Bration range adds a nice contrast against the scalloped frame.
Extra texture was added by embossing the larger panel of Whisper White cardstock with the Tin Tile embossing folder. The Smaller panel was embossed with the Subtle folder. As I didn’t have any ribbon to match the colours on my card I created my own by colouring it with the Pool Party Stampin’ Blend. I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set and cut out the ‘Happy Easter’ section as the rest of the sentiment which said said ‘happy spring’ didn’t quite work for us Down Under!
