Tranquil Tulips Birthday Card
(Inside: Happy Birthday. May today be the start of a wonderful year.”
This card features stamps from the “Tranquil Tulips” set (retired?) by Stampin’ Up. The background was made with the “Dictionary Background” stamp (retired?) also by Stampin’ Up.
I used Tim Holtz “Antique Linen” and “Victorian Velvet” distress inks along with Gina K Designs “Dark Sage” ink. Water color paper added texture to the focal and background panels and was matted on Gina K Dark Sage card stock.
The greeting on the front is from the “Celebrate” stamp set (#SC0752) by Hampton Arts, and the inside sentiment is from the “Birthday Sentiments” set by Honey Doo Crafts.
For my first attempt, I used GKD “Honey Mustard” ink for the dictionary background and had done some sponging around the edges for a more distressed look. A greeting panel could be added later.
Thanks for checking out my card project!

Such beautiful coloring of these tulips. I really love the no line look of them.
The tulips are actually 2 step, solid stamps so I didn’t need to color them. I just stamped the two images over each other for each flower; the stamps and ink did all the work!
Both versions are so pretty!
