Tulips for Mother's Day

Posting another card I made with the gorgeous Tulips from Power Poppy. I made this card for Splitcoast Stampers' Sketch Challenge SC487 from last week. Hope to post more promptly in the future! The card I made for my mother-in-law:
Stamps: Power Poppy's Tulips Digital Stamp Set
Dies: Spellbinders Classic & Scalloped Circles, Twisted Metal Tags & Accents
Paper: Ki Color Crush 6x6 Pad
Coloring: Copics
Faux Enamel Dots: Paper & Clear Embossing Powder
Other: cb ef: Swiss Dots, Letter Stickers. Signo White Gel Pen

This card was CASE'd from this beautiful inspiration by cathymac:

The image ended up to be too big to fit inside my circle, so I attempted to do the 'Out of the Box with Nestabilities' technique but I accidentally cut too far, so I just cut the whole flower out & adhered to a complete circle. Going to have to try that technique again, though...stay tuned!

One thing I did try out was to make my own 'faux enamel dots'. I spend hours learning new things to try and I almost never get around to actually DOING them. This was a little tricky, but I'm definitely going to try it again. You use paper circles so your embellishments match your project perfectly. Instructions from The Frugal Crafter are here:

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh they’re so pretty in pink too! Such a lovely design!

  2. How beautiful your tulips are! Pink tulips are some of my favorites! Nice save on your "out of the box" technique....I can't tell you how many times I have accidentally lopped something off doing that! :) A truly beautiful card!
