TULIP TIME

2015.04.07 Tulips 2Our 4th and final card for April Stamp Camp is Tulip Time using the new single stamp “Love is Kindness.”  The message on the stamp reads:  “The essence of love is kindness.  Robert Louis Stevenson”  Tulip Time can be stamped with the message as shown here, or the message can be matted out as I have done in my second sample.  The colors on the beautiful Painted Blooms DSP include Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Rose Red, Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi.  I used the Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities to color my tulips, but other colors could certainly be used.  The card is actually Daffodil Delight with a layer of Blackberry Bliss, and a frame of Rose Red around the tulips.  Cotton Ribbon in Daffodil Delight frames the Blackberry.  Note the Large Scallop Edgelits usage on the one end of the DSP.  This adds interest to the card and allows the Blackberry Bliss to peek thru.  I did emboss the right end of the Blackberry but I’m not sure it is needed as only a small portion of the rich dark color is actually seen. 

April Stamp Camp does a great job at welcoming spring!  4 cards for $12.00 with lots of flowers and butterflies.  May Stamp Camp is scheduled for May 7, 8, and 9 at the normal times.  As this is right before Mother’s Day, I will make sure our cards can be used for Moms and also for other special people and occasions.  If you can let me know when you are coming, or if you will need a kit, it is helpful but not required.  Don’t forget to take advantage of the free shipping offer thru Friday, April 10th.  Give me a call with any questions or concerns.

Springtime Blessings, Rosemary – 630/759-3089 – paperrose01@aol.com
