Hi Stamping Friends!

Last Call!  We've got deadlines coming up tomorrow for two classes: the "Last Thursdays" card class and the March Stamp-of-the-Month class featuring Painted Petals.  Class-To-Go kits are available for both!

Today, I'm sharing the final two cards from the Painted Petals class, but first…

The last two cards from my 5-card Painted Petals class both feature pretty, miniature tulips!

Amazing Tulip Border Card—Isn't this card cute & quaint?  I stepped out of my comfort zone and kept this one very clean and simple. I wanted to highlight the mini tulip trio image and show how adorable it looks as a focal point!

Twinkling Tulips—I stamped the 3-stems image all the way across the edge of a 5-1/2" x 1-3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock in Pear Pizzazz ink.  Then I added multicolored blooms by coloring on the flower stamp with Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Markers. 

I used my 2-Way Glue Pen to add some Dazzling Diamonds glitter over the blooms.

TIP: I highly recommend the photopolymer style for this stamp set for accurate alignment.  I purchased the clear stamps and it's not as easy to get perfect positioning.  See how my tulips are overlapping my stems a little?  I wouldn't have had that if I was using the see-thru photopolymer.  Bottom line: If it's a two-step stamp set, photopolymer is better (and cheaper, too)!

Finishing Touches—I added a Hello Honey Sweet Dreams Washi Tape border to the top of my Whisper White stamped piece, then adhered it to my Crushed Curry card base.  I finished it by wrapping some Whisper White Painted Blooms Cotton Twine around the card front and tying into a bow.

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Painted Petals greeting in Coastal Cabana onto Whisper White card stock, then punched out the words with the Decorative Label Punch. It's popped up with Dimensionals over the twine.

TIP: Don't forget to stamp first, then use the punch upside-down over the top, so you can center the image inside the punch!

A Field of Painted Blooms Card—My last card from the Painted Petals class is filled with colorful and cheery flowers…like a spring meadow!

Background Basics—I featured my favorite Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper design for the background.  The 5" x 3-3/4" piece is matted on a 5-1/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Wild Wasabi card stock. 

Lovely Layers—I added a 5" x 1-1/2" piece of Soft Sky to create a foundation for the focal point.  The vertical lines are stamped with the stripes image from the Painted Petals set. Oooh! What a fun background pattern!  Love it! 

I accented the layer by tying some Wild Wasabi Cotton Twine around it, then I adhered it to the Rose Red card base.

I also added a 1" x 3-3/4" strip of Crushed Curry card stock for a vertical layer under the focal point.

Focal Point—I created the two-color blooms by inking the image first in Daffodil Delight and then coloring the center of the flowers on the stamp with a Tangerine Tango Stampin' Write Marker.  After it's all inked and colored, I huffed on the stamp to re-moisten it, then stamped it on a Whisper White 2-1/2" Circle punched shape. 

The Painted Petals sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I popped up the element with Dimensionals.

Bitty Butterfly—I couldn't resist adding a double-layer Rose Red Bitty Butterfly to the edge of my focal point.  I bent the wings up a bit and adhered some Pearl Jewels for the body.  So cute!
