Stamping and Blogging with Tulips & FREE Shipping!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back. I hope you all had a delightful Easter. Kind of hard to let it go just yet as I love-love-love this Tulip Set from Stampin’ Up! called Blessed Easter. So pretty and just so easy to work with.


………..and here is the sketch


The card base is Shimmer White Card Stock and the mats are Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe. Pretty combination for sure. The is Vary Vanilla Seam Binding but colored with my Calypso Coral Marker to it would match. That’s so easy to do.

The images were colored with Markers in Blush Blossom, Calypso Coral and Cajun Craze. I used a Blender Pen to move the color around and did a little Marker Layering. Same with the leaves…..done in Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz.

I then added some Basic Pearls to the Ribbon to finish it off. Hope you like it.

If you don’t have a Demonstrator…I’d love to fill those shoes. Just let me know.

Here is the supply list for this card and don’t forget we have FREE Shipping until Friday night!!! Just click here to get to my store!

Make sure to hop on over to the other Design Team Members and see what they have done with this sketch.

Stamping and Blogging is For the Birds! lol

Okay Sandi I had to…..(You know Stamping and Blogging is a fun place to be and so much to see and learn….you need to stop by!!!)

Welcome back to another sketch challenge from Stamping and Blogging. I really enjoyed this little sketch and it came to me quickly what I would do with it. I know it’s simple…well very simple….but I like it…hope you do too!!


…and the sketch….



The card is built around this cute little image found in the “For the Birds” Set. I cut the greeting off so that I could use just the birds. That way I have two stamps as well. I used the Labels Collection to cut the Image Piece and then ran it through the Big Shot again using the Designer Frames which created that cute little oval effect. I then stamped and colored the Bird Image and punched out with the XLarge Oval Punch which happens to fit right into that oval frame. Love it!!!


The Designer Paper is from the Polka Dot Parade Pack and is Marina Mist. I painted the Birds the same color. I finished it off with a Double Bow using my “Magic Bow Maker” (available at the top of my blog) to give it a little more whimsey.

If you would like to order any of the supplies used to make this card or one of your own here is the Supply List.

I hope you will visit the rest of the design team as they have some awesome things in store for your today!!!

Stampers Dozen Previous Arrow
I used the Blue Ribbon Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! for the little tag and cut it out using the Chalk Talk Framelit. I actually cut a 2nd one in Real Red and cut it in three and taped to the back to make the border. I colored it with a Black and Red Markers. 
The “Congratulations” Stamp is from the “Sweet Essentials” Set and I made the background paper using the single word….”Congratulations”….stamped randomly!!
I mounted that on black Cardstock and strips of Silver Glimmer Paper around the edges for a “faux” layer.
I made the cute little bow using my “Magic Bow Maker” found at the top of my blog. Fast, Cute and Easy Bow Making!!

I hope you’ll move on down the tour…the fabulous Jan Wakeland awaits you……
