Stampin’ Up! Tranquil Tulips for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Tranquil Tulips host exclusive stamp set to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  We’ve got a color challenge this week and this is what I created for it.

Here are the colors that we’re using this week:

My card design was inspired by The Paper Players #346.

I started by adhering a panel from the Delightful Daisy DSP to a panel of Rich Razzleberry card stock with SNAIL.

I embossed a panel of Rich Razzleberry card stock with the Fluttering Embossing Folder and I adhered it to the card front.  I adhere a strand of Old Olive Mini Chevron 3/8″ Ribbon around the panel with SNAIL and then wrapped a strand of Linen thread around it and tied a bow.  I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink on the DSP and then adhered the layered panel to a Rich Razzlberry card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the tulip images from the Tranquil Tulips stamp set (host exclusive item) in Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive inks on a panel of Pool Party card stock.  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Rich Razzleberry card stock with SNAIL and then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel next to the sentiment to finish the card front.

I stamped the tulip images from the Tranquil Tulips stamp set in Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.

You can see a complete list of supplies, including card stock cuts, used to create this card at the very bottom of my post.

  1. This Dutch girl is still pining for this stamp set. Wish I could find some fellow stampers here in GR to share an order with. Do you know of anyone? Judy

  2. Your tulips are amazing with the color. It almost looks like you watercolored them. I didn’t think I wanted this set but now I’m having second thoughts! TFS.

  3. Well, this is not a color palette I would have ever thought to put together, but it totally works with these beautiful new tulips! Thanks for joining us this week at The Paper Players, Amy! Crystal, DT

  4. Marsha, what a fab backgound! I’m actually taking my first class in two weeks on oxide inks and I’m quite excited because I’ve seen some gorgeous creations, like yours, using them! Thank you for joining us this week at The Paper Players! Crystal, DT

  5. Beautiful card Amy. Actually, all the cards are great this week. And I wouldn’t have thought of that color combo, but it really works well.

    • Thanks Julie! I pulled the colors from one of the new DSP packs…wasn’t sure how well they’d work together when I started, but I think that it worked! 🙂

  6. Not a color combo I could envision but everyone has used it beautifully! I love those tulips. Will pin this so I can CASE it when I get that stamp set! love the hop every week and this is especially good one.

  7. So beautiful Amy ☺ I love all the details that you added, they really pop and bring the sketch to life 😉

  8. Such a lovely card and so perfectly made! As soon as I get the third day of jury duty behind me, I’ll be ready to place an order… can’t wait!
