Hello, Crafting Friends! Today I have a fun card for you. It was created by my friend Christy. Whenever we have a challenge or Christy is in a swap, she often makes me a card as well, just because. I loved the one she gave me for our recent color challenge. The challenge was to use Blackberry Bliss, Poppy Parade, and Calypso Coral. I got a few groans when I added Calypso Coral, but everyone did a beautiful job! Here’s Christy’s entry for the color challenge. .
Christy used the colors beautifully! She used the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Stamp Set from the January-June Mini Catalog, stamping the flowers in Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, and Blackberry Bliss. The leaves are Pear Pizzazz. (Ok, I’m guessing about that. But it looks like Pear Pizzazz, or a darker green stamped off.)
She took a strip of Poppy Parade Cardstock and ripped the bottom, then layered the Poppy Parade to a Blackberry Bliss Card base. Then she layered the stamped Whisper White layer over the top.
The sentiment, also from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set, is stamped in Poppy Parade on Whisper White. A couple of Rhinestone Basic Jewels frame the sentiment.
I didn’t take a picture of the inside, but it’s Whisper White with a couple more Poppy Parade tulips peeking out from the side. So cute! This is such a fun, yet relatively simple card. This just may show up again in classes next month!
Here’s a little FYI. The Timeless Tulips Stamp Set has a coordinating Tulip Builder Punch with a tulip flower and a leaf. If you bundle the stamp set and punch, you can save 10% through June 2, 2020.
Don’t forget to check back on Friday for another StampOff with Susan, Jackie, and me. And thank you for all the well wishes and prayers for my family. Mike, Amelia, and I are much better – although I have a bump on my arm where they took blood and put in the IV last Friday. It’s sore, but my Jonathan assured me it will be gone in a day or two. Dad has good days and bad days. We decided to have hospice care, so they had to remove the feeding tube. He has been eating “real” food ever since. We’ve also been told that it’s not unusual for patients to leave hospice care because they’re better. My dad is a little stubborn (ok, a lot stubborn), so it wouldn’t surprise me to see him get strong enough to go back home. We’re taking it a day at a time.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
This is a very pretty card – I can’t wait to see ‘real’ tulips in my garden! (cold weather – enough is enough!) I’m so glad to hear that you’re all feeling better, Buffy. I hope that your Dad continues to improve, as well. 🙂
