Tulip thank you!

   Well hello there! Hope you are doing well today.  I spent the morning playing around with the new hostess set Tranquil Tulips and I looooove it!  It is a two step stamp set with tons of possibilities.  There are so many stamps in the set that I had a hard time narrowing it down for my card.  I see lots of uses for this stamp set in my future (and I love a versatile stamp set!).  I needed a thank you card and the beautiful flowers from this set came to mind right away.  I paired it with Background Bits for the sentiment and my little card came right to life.  Take a peek-see:

 I built the bouquet of flowers by doing some two step stamping.  If you are not familiar with that process, it basically means you build up a 3d looking image by layering stamped images on top of one another.  You can use the same color or different colors for different looks.  I used the same color for the larger tulips and 2 different colors for the smaller flowers.  The stems all use the same color, but lots of different stamps.  The combinations are limitless.

I stamped the script from the Background Bits set three times on the large Very Vanilla piece to fill in some of the white space.  I added a punched 1" Circle and a tiny little piece of the new Copper Trim.  That is the neatest stuff.  You can use it like ribbon or spread it apart to get more of a netting look.  It has a beautiful copper shimmer to it.

Here is a close up view of the flower bouquet.

I also made a second flower just playing around with the different stamps.  Think I'll save this one for a tag!

Here are the products I used to make my card.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

I'll be back soonest with more to share wit you!   Have a great day!

Beautiful card! I haven't used my 2 step stamps in quite a while, but these are so pretty!
