Today, I am sharing Tranquil Tulips, one of the Host Exclusive stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! Beginning on page 220 in the Annual Catalog, you will see all of the sets just for Hosts. When your sales reach $150 or more, you can purchase the stamp sets found on pages 220-223.
I started by spritzing a panel of Whisper White with a little water to break down some of the fibers, then dry embossed it with the new Layered Leaves Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Next, I adhered a strip of the Berry Burst pattern from the Fresh Florals Designer Series paper onto my embossed layer.
I stamped the stems and leaves from Tranquil Tulips in Lemon Lime Twist onto a panel of Whisper White. The tulip flowers were stamped individually onto another panel of Whisper White and fussy cut with my Paper Snips. (Each tulip flower is a two step stamp, so I have 2 parts cut out for each one)
After cutting the tulips, I dry fit them on the art panel and decided on their placement, then stamped the smaller pods in Berry Burst ink right onto the art panel. I chose a sentiment from So Many Shells, and stamped it in Soft Suede ink. Once all of the stamping was complete, I adhered the art panel to a panel of Lemon Lime Twist card stock with glue. Normally I would have then popped it onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, but decided to glue it to the embossed panel.
The tulip flowers were popped onto the front with dimensionals and then the whole panel adhered to the Whisper White card stock base with more dimensionals. I tied a small bow with the Berry Burst 1/2″ Fine Woven ribbon and attached it with Glue Dots.
The tulip on the inside is just one layer, in Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist. My sentiment is another one from So Many Shells and is stamped in Soft Suede ink. Enjoy!
