Timeless Tulips Cards

Darkroom Door - Tuesday, April 09, 2019

Hi! Suzz Czosek here with some beautiful spring tulips just for you!  

I was making my own spring garden with the lovely Collage Stamps - Timeless Tulips. I made a series of cards with varying colors and layers. 

For my first inspiration I used a lovely pink with some layers to highlight the beauty of the images.  

 

1. Stamp Timeless Tulips Collage Stamp with black ink on white cardstock. Repeat.  
2. Paint flowers on both images with distress oxide ink. 
3. Cut flowers out from one image after dry. 
4. Ink up craft mat with pink ink and spritz with water.  
5. Lay stamped image onto pink ink and pick up spots of color over background. 
6. Stamp butterfly with black ink on white cardstock. Paint with ink. 
7. Cut out butterfly. 
8. Attach background image to layer of white cardstock. Distress edges. 
9. Assemble layers. 
10. Attach flower pieces at bottom of petal to card front. 
11. Stamp sentiment and cut out. Attach to card front.  


Next I created a similar card stamped in a lovely muted blue violet. 


1. Stamp the Timeless Tulips Collage Stamp on white cardstock using Blue Violet ink. Repeat. 
2. Stamp Butterfly Garden Collage Stamp on white cardstock using Blue Violet ink. 
3. Colour the butterflies and flowers with a hint of pink. Color the stems with green. (I used watercolor pencils) 
4. Cut out one set of flowers and the butterflies.
5. Attach tiny pearls to center of butterflies bodies. 
6. Attach stamped image to two layers of white cardstock and attach to front of the card. 
7. Attach butterflies and flower petals to front of card. 
8. Stamp sentiment with black ink and attach to card front. 


Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Collage Stamp: Timeless Tulips 
Darkroom Door Sentiments Stamp: Sympathy

I was thinking about masking my flowers and ended up cutting out a set of tulips. They were so lovely that I used them on another card with a hint of script in the background. 


1. Stamp Timeless Tulips using brown ink on white cardstock. 
2. Colour with pink and orange and green accents.  
3. Cut out flowers. 
4. Ink up flowers with versamark or embossing ink. Heat emboss with Vintage Beeswax. 
5. Stamp French Script using brown ink on white cardstock. 
6. Attach flowers over stamped script. 
7. Cut front panel. 
8. Layer front panel on white cardstock and attach to cardbase. 
9. Stamp sentiment using brown ink onto main panel. 
10. Attach twists of twine to front image.

Well that Vintage Beeswax gave such a lovely effect I decided to do a whole image embossed with the soft aging.

2. Ink up the entire image with embossing ink (Versamark) 
3. Cover with Beeswax embossing powder. Heat emboss.  Repeat the process. (2 layers of beeswax) 
4. Cut image to size. 
5. Mat image on white cardstock and then on a black card base. 
6. Color image with alcohol markers. 
7. Add highlights with a white gel pen.
