Welcome to week 37 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Poppy Parade from the Brights family.
One of my favourite things in the world is receiving a bunch of flowers. Any flower, any colour, any combination … I really love them all! This week I needed to make a belated birthday card for a very special friend who is also a paper crafter, so I decided to make her a paper bunch of flowers with the Flowering Tulips Bundle.
My colour combination was inspired by some of the colours from the gorgeous Flowering Fields DSP: Poppy Parade, Petal Pink, Pear Pizzazz, Basic White and Basic Black.
I haven’t yet seen any cards that combine both types of flowers in the Flowering Tulips Bundle: the 3D folded tulips (made with the Tulips Dies) and the stamped and die cut open tulips (made with the Flowering Tulips Stamp Set and the Tulips Dies,) so I decided to give it a go.
I’m must say I’m really happy with the exuberance and dimension of this card – it’s definitely not one to pop in the post, though!
The soft Petal Pink cardstock layer has been embossed with the Timeworn Type embossing folder to match the type on the Vellum Layering Designs that I’ve wrapped the bunch of flowers in – it really does look like a bunch of flowers wrapped in newspaper!
The tips of the Petal Pink pieces in the 3D tulips were lightly sponged with Poppy Parade before I assembled the 3D tulips. The bone folder and my fingers added dimension to the tulips in the bouquet.
By adhering the tulip to the envelope with a Stampin’ up! dimensional just below the envelope flap, the tulip works as both a decoration and an envelope closure mechanism, allowing the envelope flap to be easily opened and closed many times without damaging the DSP!
