A Touch of Tulips with The Joy of Sets Blog Hop

March 2020

It’s time once again for a super fun blog hop with my fellow The Joy of Sets hoppers! Scroll to the end to see the complete list of hoppers. Our theme this month is anything Easter or Spring. What a perfect time for tulips! My mother has always loved yellow tulips, so she is the inspiration for this card.  I adore this fun fold and thought it was perfect for the flowers. I used the Tulip Builder Punch with a sticky note to create a mask so that I could have some of the flowers in the background without stamping over the foreground.

Gingham Easter Lilies

I had to wait to share this until after Easter so that the people receiving them wouldn’t see them ahead of time. Even though Easter is over, you can still make these cards…just change the sentiment to whatever you need. Even though some of these products are from Sale-a-Bration and are no longer available, I know several people that have these items. If you weren’t able to get your hands on them, you can always substitute with products you already have.

Gingham Easter Lilies
I have always loved the look of vellum on cards. So reminiscent of the cards I used to receive as a child from my mother. She knew how much I loved the crinkly sound of it. These cards use the soft, pretty colors from the Gingham Gala 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper Stack (available in the Occasions catalog) as my inspiration. I glued the lilies and sentiment onto the vellum, then placed adhesive onto the back of the vellum on the spots where the lilies and sentiments are. This way, when gluing the vellum layer onto the DSP, no adhesive shows through. I hope everyone liked the colors I chose for them!

Lasting Lily Wishing You Well

Tomorrow is the big day! All the items I’ve been sharing with you from the 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Brochure will be available to you! Today’s sneak peek is the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Lasting Lily. This 16 piece photopolymer set is part of Stampin’ Up!’s DistINKtive stamps line, which have the unique ability to apply color in differing degrees so one stamp shows many shades. They are so pretty! Most items in the Sale-a-Bration brochure are free with a $50 product purchase. But because this is a larger stamp set, you can earn it with a $100 purchase. It is so worth it – there are two different lilies with stems and leaves as well as 10 sentiments! I will be using this set for my Easter cards this year.

Easter Blessings

I recently held a card making class for some super fun ladies at my church. We made two cards – one Easter and one Birthday. Today I’ll be sharing the Easter card. I can’t believe it’s almost upon us! I will admit that I struggled with this card. I knew I wanted to use the floral cross from the set Blessed by God and the Easter sentiment inside from the current Occasions Catalog called Suite Sentiments. My dear Hunter came to my rescue for everything else – she picked out the color combo, layout, embossing folder and embellishment!

Easter Blessings

Stamp Sets: Blessed by God, Suite Sentiments
Cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Bermuda Bay, Wisteria Wonder
Lovelies: Subtles Enamel Shapes, Bermuda Bay and Very Vanilla Thick Baker’s Twine
