Easter Tulips – Center Step Card

Easter Tulips – Center Step Card

(inside sentiment: may joy and peace surround you this Easter season)

This 5×7 Center Step Card card features images from the Stampin’ Up “Two Step Stampin’ – Terrific Tulips” set along with a greeting from the SU “All Year Cheer I” set.  They were stamped on white card stock with Gina K Designs Wild Lilac, Lovely Lavender, and Fresh Asparagus Ink.  This panel was adhered to a piece of Gina K Wild Lilac card stock.

The patterned background paper on the front is called “Lavender Lines” by Recollections.  The card base was made with Gina K Heavy Base Weight White.  I used a panel of Gina K Lovely Lavender and white card stock for the inside.  The sentiment on the inside was computer generated.  (I need to get more Easter stamps!)

I thought I’d participate in The Paper Players Challenge this week which is “Clean-and-Simple: Celebrate Spring ” so I tried not to add too much to this card.  However, I will admit that I don’t really know what CAS is exactly since the card samples from their design team vary greatly in the amount of “stuff” on the cards.  Since I feared my step card wasn’t CAS enough, I decided to try an even simpler design using the same stamped panel on just a plain white card base:

I’m still not sure it is CAS enough since the card base is so small (this is an A2 sized card) and the stamped images are so big, but this is the version I decided to submit.  I do love CAS card designs when others make them and wish I were better at them; this is something I will definitely keep working on.

Thanks for checking out my card projects!

  1. Love your tulip card. I was looking through my stamp sets and found my All Year Cheer I set, like you used, and used the Happy Easter stamp as well. I will have to look and see if I have the tulip set or one close.


  2. Nothing says spring to me like tulips and these double-stamped ones are gorgeous! Beautiful colors and I love the subtle background paper–just enough color and texture but still CAS…Thank you for sharing with us at The Paper Players!
