How many people love Tulips?  I do!  During the end of winter and the first tulips pop through the ground I know that Spring is on it’s way.  Tulips have always made me think of spring and bright cheerful colors.  For today’s card I am using the hostess set Tranquil Tulips for this reason.   You can only get this stamp set by either hosting a party or by placing an order with sales (before taxes and shipping) of $150 or more.  This set is a host/hostess only stamp set, and let me just say thins there are some great sets in that section this year.  I also used the Lots of Love stamp set found on page 89 of the catalog for the sentiment on my card today.  Here’s a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks:

The tranquil tulip stamp set is a two step stamp set that is extremely easy to do.  I have found that some of the two step stamp sets were not very easy to do, but this one is very easy and lines up nicely.  I was very happy with the outcome.  This stamp set produces some wonderful realistic watercolor tulips that are to die for.

To create the shadows at the bottom of the leaves you will need a baby wipe to wipe off the ink at the top of the leaves.  You will ink the them up like normal and remove the excess ink with the baby wipe.   Then just stamp it as normal.  This will create a second layer of ink which will be just a shade darker and give the illusion of a natural shadow.

For my card today I used Peekaboo Peach, Tangerine Tango, Basic Gray, & Wild Wasabi.  Here’s a look at the colors I used one this card.
