Timeless Tulips Flower Challenge

Hello everyone.  It is time once again, for another Stamp Off Challenge.  This time out challenge is “flowers”.  This has to be the easiest challenge ever because if Stampin’ Up!® has anything, it has flowers.  Lots and lot of flowers!

I decided to go with the Timeless Tulips Bundle for this challenge.  After playing with this I ended up making a card that didn’t use the Timeless Tulips stamp set.  I only use the Tulip Builder Punch.  This punch cuts out the main part of the tulip and some leaves.  I was punching out some and realized that the leaves could also be used a tulip petals making them look more 3D.

To make this card I first punched out the tulips in Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  Then I layered the petals on top of the main tulip body using Dimensionals to add a little depth to them.  I cut the stems out using the Lily Pad Dies in Granny Apple Green cardstock.  I apologize ahead of time because I know Sale-a-bration is over and I just realized as I was writing this that I had used those dies.  As you know, I had to put all my stamping supplies away in mid February in order to stage our house for sale so all the cards I have been posting were made back then.  Things are still put away so I can’t fix it for you.   Sorry about that.

The sentiment I used is from the stamp set called Kindness & Compassion.  This stamp set is in the 2019/2020 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog.  The little Granny Apple Green heart is from the Dog Builder Punch.

Now let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made with their many, many flower sets!  Those two are so inspiring to me!

You Are My Sunshine

Good morning everyone!  Today is another Buffy, Jackie and Susan Stamp Off Challenge.  This time our challenge has to be something to do with sunshine.  Of course whenever I hear the word sunshine I automatically start singing “you are my sunshine, my only sunshine” 🎶  That is because it is one of Madelyn’s favorite songs!  Now I just wish I would see some of that elusive sunshine soon!

I decided to go with the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and the matching dies called Sunshine Wishes.  I also used the stamp set Merry Christmas To All which has the words “Wishing” and “You” in it and the Dog Builder Punch that is in the 2019 Occasions Catalog for the little heart that dots my “i”.

To make this card, I first cut out three sets of the flowers in Mango Melody.  I cut off the stems and then layered them together on a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock.  I punched out the flower center using my 1″ Circle Punch and then ran it through my Big Shot using the Subtle Embossing Folder.  I cut out the butterfly in Poppy Parade card stock and the word sunshine in Basic Black.  I embossed all the words by stamping them in Versamark and then using White Embossing Powder with my Heat Tool.  All of this is layering on top of a card base of Poppy Parade.

Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made.  I am sure their creations will make me happy while skies are gray!
