Stampin' Up! Timeless Tulips Stamp Set

"I love tulips better than any other spring flower; they are the embodiment of alert cheerfulness and tidy grace, and next to a hyacinth look like a wholesome, freshly tubbed young girl beside a stout lady whose every movement weights down the air with patchouli.  Their faint, delicate scent is refinement itself and is there anything in the world more charming than the sprightly way they hold up their little faces to the sun.  I have heard them called bold and flaunting, but to me they seem modest grace itself, only always on the alert to enjoy life as much as they can and not be afraid of looking the sun or anything else above them in the face."   
-- Elizabeth von Arnim, Elizabeth and Her German Garden

She said it so well, I have nothing more to add but today's sample card made with the Stampin' Up! Timeless Tulips Bundle from the new January-June 2020 Mini catalog


Today's card uses a basecard of Petal Pink Cardstock.  Then a layer of Rich Razzleberry.  Then a print from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper.  For the image layer I used the Layering Oval Dies and cut a scalloped oval out of Petal Pink Cardstock.  Then I cut a slightly smaller oval out of another print from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper.              

To create the tulips, I stamped the largest tulip from Timeless Tulips Stamp Set in Petal Pink ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  I stamped two of them.  Then I punched them out using the Tulip Builder Punch.  I used sponge Daubers and Rich Razzleberry ink to lightly add a Rich Razzleberry tint to the bottom edges of each of the tulips.     

Then I stamped the leaves and stems in Pear Pizzazz ink onto the oval print.  I popped the Tulip heads up on Dimensionals.  After assembling my layers, I added a bow using Petal Pink 14" Metallic-Edge Ribbon.          

To complete my card, I selected a sentiment from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set and stamped it in Rich Razzleberry ink onto a Whisper White Rectangle die cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.   

I love the color combinations in the print from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper  You'll want to take a look at the entire Timeless Tulip Bundle on page 43 of the catalog and then flip to see more samples on page 67 of the  January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.

All Occasions Card Class - January 19,2020 

Everyone loves to receive a greeting card, either through the post or personally presented by hand.  In this crazy fast, faster, fastest instant world that we all live in, its worth remembering that the greeting card is still considered by most as a truly effective way of telling someone you really care.  

Time is the most precious thing we have to give, so if we spend time making and writing and sending a card, we are helping people feel valuable and worthwhile.  Celebrations happen all year long and you know you'll need greeting cards for many different special occasions. Join us to make these projects.

All Occasions Card Class #16
Start this year by creating these 6 cards, which you can use as samples or templates to make more cards on your own. We're using new sets from the Stampin' Up! current catalogs along with a cute purse treat holder. You'll finish this class with a collection of beautiful projects you'll find useful in letting others know how much you care.   

In this class, we'll make the projects in the photo below.  Six projects where you'll use stamp sets, papers, and embellishments from the latest Stampin' Up! catalog, the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and one of the Free with $50 or $100 order Sale-A-Bration selections. For one card, you'll learn to create your own designer paper that looks just as good as professional paper. These are great handmade projects to use when you want to send a special message to friends, or family.

Join us for a relaxing Sunday afternoon to create these 6 beautiful projects. New stampers, experienced stampers, and other Stampin' Up! demonstrators are always welcome. It's a great way to create samples, share ideas and learn from each other. We have a great bunch of stampers who enjoy joking and laughing while stamping the afternoon away.     

We're using an assortment of Stampin' Up! stamps sets, die cuts and foils on these cards, and you'll want to take a closer look at each of the cards we're making in this class.

Sale-A-Bration...The Best time to Join Stampin' Up! 

Is your imagination dreaming of the wonderful cards you'll create with sets from the new catalog?  I know I can hardly sit still when I'm waiting for my first catalog order to arrive. I keep fidgeting, checking Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook to see who's already posting new card ideas.  I feel like a tiny, little, compact kernel of popcorn, with magic trapped inside that when agitated, bursts to create something marvelously desirable. "Just get me my new catalog order!", I whisper to no-one under my breath.  I straighten my craft room--a little...well, very little-- and, desperately check the progress of my Stampin' Up! shipment with UPS.  

When it arrives, I feel light and smiley and too full of excitement as I know I'm going to enjoy every minute unboxing and using my new items.  Every stamp set is the beginning of a new journey, and my heart races.  My craft room claims me as I immerse myself in a temporary feeling of bliss.
