I hope you are all doing well. I can say when we are busy time has a way to run away quickly too. I am realizing that more and more I need a list to get me through most days otherwise I don't get as much done. I have been making a lot of cards in the passed 10 days and today is my last day to make them. We are travelling for a few days but I wanted to let you see one of the cards I made this weekend. I was so anxious to get my idea of a tulip card on paper when I received the punch I needed for it. So here it is:
My tulip card
Bazzill card stock (white) & Green CS from stash. Memento ink (Bahama Blue) & SU Ink (Pretty in Pink) and some Tim Holtz Ink (Crushed Olive). Punch Bunch (Ovoid petals) leaf punch and a vase punch. A rectangle shape rubber stamp (from stash). Glass imitation sheet (gotten this at a Craft show). Foam pad & stylus of different sizes. Dimensional tape.
I started with my tulips. I shaped my ovoid shapes on the foam pad in a cupping way, after using a sponge with ink to do all the ovoid edges. I trimmed some green CS in a very thin strip for my stems and punched out some of the leaf punches which I also added ink on the edges to give more dimension.
To assemble the Ovoids which will resemble more of of a tulip you need to put the two pointy ends together spreading the two like a fan. Glue together, then the last ovoid petal will go to the top middle with a pop up dot. Then I curled the side edges of the tulip to make it look fuller. I then put a dab of glue in the back and added my stem with the leaves already on.
Punched out my vase from the fake glass sheet and set aside. Prepared my card then I stamped my rectangle shape in Bahama Blue, made sure it was dry before adding my tulips on to it. Positioned the tulips the way that was pleasing to me, adhered the vase on top with some tacky glue. Then adhered the tulips with some glue dots to secure it. Adhered my center piece to the card and Voila!
Have a fantastic week! I will post more flowers of mine and more cards this week.
