Thanks for joining our Create with Connie and Mary Saturday blog hop!
Our theme this week features Easter / Spring Themed cards.
What a great theme!
It’s finally getting pretty, sun-shiny, and looking a lot like spring here in the Houston area.
Great inspiration for creating a spring card –
If you follow me on a regular basis, you know I love to use things in various ways beyond what they were designed for. No different here.
I am referring to the tulips. Any guesses as to what I used for them? Think about it.
I used the More Than Words stamp set for the Easter sentiment. I stamped that in Highland Heather, which is also what I used for card base.
I pulled out the lovely, Beautiful Bouquet stamp set for the stems and leaves.
I added the tulips on Dimensionals. That makes them really stand out.
Anymore thoughts on what I used to create the tulips??
Ok. Ok. I used the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch!
I punched two of the shapes for each tulip, then inserted each in a 1/2″ Circle Punch to remove the light base. I glued them together sort of askew and a sweet little tulip has been easily created!
I’d love to hear what you think about my card! It’s fun, bright, and springish.
