Svitlana is here. Today I will be focusing on the recently released Exotic Tulips Stamp Set. This set is packed with images to stamp three-layered tulips of different sizes and shapes, a stem and two leaves. There is also a couple of sentiments in this set.
I made three cards using this beautiful set.
For my first card, I went with a one-layer design, stamping kind of a floral frame around a horizontally oriented A2 card.
I made the card base out of a Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. The design was stamped using dye inks from the Deep Blue Seas Oval Set. Each flower of this set has three layers, I was alternating the colors from the ink set to make tulips of different shades. For some, I was skipping the bottom layers to achieve white flowers with a blue pattern.
When I stamped the flowers, I was placing them in such a way so they don’t overlap. So no masking was involved on that step.
Next, I stamped the stems and leaves, using Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake and Lagoon Crisp Dye Inks. These elements all have two layers each and I was alternating inks to get elements of two shades, darker and lighter.
To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment in the middle and added several clear droplets.
PINK TULIPS IN WOODGRAIN BACKGROUND
For my next card, I went a bit more layered and more complicated. To start off, I made a lot of tulips of the same design (the smallest one from the set) as well as leaves and stems. First, I die cut all elements out of white cardstock using the coordinating dies.
I did 8 die-cuts of the tulip head and about the same about of each leaf and stems. Next, I placed each element in a corresponding negative space in the paper piece they were cut out of, which was inside on my mini MISTI. Then I stamped each layer on all elements, replacing them in the negative space. After that, I moved on to the next layer.
This made producing such number of elements a pretty quick task. Die-cutting all of them didn’t require a lot of attention and I only was aligning each stamp once to stamp all the elements.
Then I cut a panel out of a Woodgrain Powder Cardstock and made wood planks onto it. I was masking off an inch-wide area using two pieces of a painters tape and blended between the tape strips with Sand Dunes and Rocky Shore Crisp Dye Inks. Then I masked off an inch-wide area next to it and did the same. And so on.
I adhered all stamped die-cuts onto the panel and then foam mounted the panel onto a white card base. Finally, I die cut a sentiment using the Simply Hello Die and popped it onto the card, which I finished off by adding several clear droplets.
TEAL AND ORANGE
My last card I made using a rather bold color combo of teals and oranges.
I stamped two tulip heads using Orange Cream, Autumn Blaze and Firebrick Crisp Dye Inks. Next, I “color” the area around the stamped images by blending Galactic Stream Crisp Dye Ink. I masked the flowers using the matching mask stencils. After that, I die-cut them using the matching dies.
For leaves and stems, I went simpler. I first blended the Teal Cave Crisp Dye Ink onto a white panel, die-cut the elements, and stamped onto them using the Teal Cave and Galactic Stream Crisp Dye Inks.
I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base and adhered the elements onto it using a liquid adhesive.
I die-cut a sentiment out of white cardstock using a die from the Script Words 2 Die Set and colored it using Firebrick and Autumn Blaze Artist Markers. After that, I foam mounted the sentiment onto the card using black adhesive foam.
Lastly, I added several white crystals onto the card.
