Happy Tuesday!!! You all know that means I have a fabulous technique to share with you! Today, I am playing with the 2-Step Tranquil Tulips Hostess Stamp Set! Aren’t these flowers amazing?!?!?!
Aren’t these flowers so amazing and real looking?? The best part is I got this stamp set for FREE with Hostess Benefits! The other best part is they are super simple to 2-step stamp. There is no remembering to stamp off or lining up every side and curve. It’s amazing!!!
I started with a Pool Party card base (11″ x 4-1/4″). Then I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 3-1/4″) to stamp the tulips on. I used the Tranquil Tulips Hostess Stamp Set with Berry Burst Ink and Old Olive Ink. Starting with the stems, I stamped those around the middle of my paper so that my tulips weren’t falling off the top. Next, I stamped the leaves. Then it was time for the tulips and I did the large solid image first. Next I did the more detailed smaller image right on top.
Both of these images are in full strength ink so no worries on remembering to stamp off. Since the second image is smaller, all you have to look for when stamping it is that it is close to the bottom of the solid stamped image. If it’s not, that’s okay too! The variation in color on these stamps is the texture in the stamp. How cool is that?!?! So don’t worry that your image isn’t coming out smooth or dark and solid, it’s suppose to look like this. There are 2 different sizes of flowers to play with! I love it! There are also little dot images for the center of the flower. I stamped those in Basic Gray Ink for a softer look than black.
Now that I am done with the focal point, I added it to the card base on the left side. Next I tied some Berry Burst Finely Woven Ribbon around the card, right over the edge of the cardstock. For the greeting, I used the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set and coordinating Pretty Label Punch. (Bundle & Save 10%) First, I stamped the decorative edge in Pool Party Ink and then the greeting in Berry Burst Ink. Next, I punched it out and added to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals! 🙂
I love this set so much because there are 22 images in there for just $10 in Hostess Dollars which is earned with a $150 order or party! It’s fabulous!!! Also, the ease of not having to remember to stamp off is super amazing!! Don’t forget about Bonus Bucks this month for every $50 you spend too!!! It’s a great time to order and have a party (in home, virtual, or catalog).
