The Stamp Review Crew: Timeless Tulips

Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop: Inspiring you one stamp set at a time

Welcome to another Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop!  We share our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday of the month.  This week's hop focuses on another Jan-Jun Mini Catalog set, Timeless Tulips, which has a coordinating Tulip Builder punch. If you are following the hop in order, you have just arrived from the blog of the very talented Jay Soriano.

I had wanted to do something different with this set, so I created a bouquet of tulips.  I was inspired by a couple of Facebook posts with flowers (tulips specifically) being anonymously dropped off at several of my friends' houses.  What a great gesture!

I used a paper bag to cut the paper to wrap the flowers.  This card uses Freshly Made Sketches #428.  And bonus, this weekend Splitcoaststampers is having their Virtual Stamp Night event, and this card qualifies for challenge MAR20VSNB, Bouquet of Flowers.

Stamps: Timeless Tulips; Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Peaceful Poppies DSP, Paper Bag; Ink: Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Versamark; Accessories: Peaceful Poppies Sequins, Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding, White Embossing Powder, Tulip Builder Punch, Subtle Embossing Folder, 3-1/2" Circle Die, Rectangle Stitched Dies, Die-Cutting Machine, Dimensionals.

ICYMI, here's a previous card I've created with Timeless Tulips.

Hop on over to Cindy Elam's blog to see what amazing creations she has put together with this week's set.

SSC227 Gingham Bunnies


Hi Everyone!  I hope you are all staying safe during this pandemic.  If you've found yourself with some extra crafting time, we've got another Sunday Stamps challenge for you.

I've had the little bunny table favors on the brain.  I wanted to make these little guys for the Hudson Valley Shoebox Swap, but as you can imagine, that event has been postponed.  So I'll make a few to share with you here.

I created a cut file on my Cameo Silhouette, approximate size 1-1/2 x 5-7/8", scored at 2-3/8" from each end.  They are sized to hold a Hershey's nugget, with "Easter Wishes" on the front, and cute little bunny tails, created out of cotton balls, on the back.

Here is this week's color challenge; use a minimum of 3 colors and a neutral of your choice.

Stamps: Something to Celebrate; Paper: Gorgeous Grape, Gingham Gala DSP; Ink: Versamark; Accessories: Braided Linen Trim, White Embossing Powder, Banner Punch, 1/8" Hole Punch, Cotton Balls, e-cutter.

SSC225 Fat Tuesday Tulips

Hi All, Time for another Sunday Stamps color challenge.  With Mardi Gras around the corner, we are thinking about some New Orleans-themed celebration colors.  The purple, green, and gold colors trace back to the 1872 Rex parade, with tradition stating purple represents justice, green represents faith, and gold represents power.

I've had fun creating a mardi gras-themed mask card in the past; this time I chose to apply the colors to flowers.

This card uses CAS(E) this Sketch #358.  And here is this week's colors; use a minimum of 3 colors and a neutral of your choice.

Stamps: Timeless Tulips, Happy Birthday To You; Paper: Daffodil Delight, Gorgeous Grape, Whisper White, Peaceful Poppies DSP; Ink: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Gorgeous Grape, Versamark; Accessories: Peaceful Poppies Sequins, Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, White Embossing Powder, Tulip Builder Punch, Brayer, Watercolor Brush, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Die-Cutting Machine, Dimensionals.
