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!
Well, it is the end of March and there are no tulips to be seen anywhere around here so I decided to make my own. I used the stamp set called Timeless Tulips which is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2020 January – June Mini Catalog. This stamp set has a matching punch called Tulip Builder and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle until June 2nd. If the stamp set carries over into the 2020/2021Annual Catalog then you will still be able to get the products. You just won’t get the discount. If they don’t carry over then they will be gone for good!
To make this card, I first cut out the frame in Petal Pink cardstock using the Heirloom Frames Dies & 3D Embossing Folders. You first cut out the frame and then you emboss it. There is an oval one too and they are both so pretty.
Then I stamped the tulips in Petal Pink Ink and the stems in Mossy Meadow onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. I layered this onto a piece of Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. Then I popped up the frame using Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow Ink and cut it out using a die from the set called Ornate Frames Dies. These are in the Annual Catalog.

Last weekend I attended a Stampin’ Up!® event called OnStage in Hartford CT. It is a one day mini convention held in various places through the world. I love attending these events. My favorite part is seeing all my Demos friends from all over the USA. Of course, Buffy was there who is my favorite faraway Demo. I was also so happy that two of my Downline came with me too. It was Karin’s first OnStage event and Karen’s second. We all had a great time.
One of the other things I love about these events is we get a copy of the next scheduled Stampin’ Up!® Catalog. In this case we got a copy of the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Occasions Catalog) and a copy of the 2020 Sale-a-bration Catalog. Plus we get free products and can order some of the other products early.
This card uses a new stamp set called Timeless Tulips. There is a matching punch called Tulip Builder and I got both of these products for free while attending OnStage, The card I made was a Make ‘n Take at the event but I didn’t make it there. I brought it home with me and of course, I had to change it up just a bit. Timeless Tulips is a DisINKtive stamp set so it shows more depth than a regular stamp set. The colors I used are Rococo Rose and Pear Pizzazz. I added a piece of Nature’s Twine in Crumb Cake.
