Stampin' UP! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop- Display Stamper Day 2

Hello there!  Welcome back to day 2 of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Display Stamper blog hop.  I'm so happy you've joined us!  As we are sharing our beautiful Display Stamper projects from all around the world- please be sure to download Google Translate so you don't miss out on any of the fabulous details!

The samples I have to share today were all created using the brand new In-Colors and the Tranquil Tulips Hostess stamp set.   For me- this stamp set was love at first sight!  I just knew it would create fabulous cards!

For my project- I created a set of four 3" x 3" cards and an adorable little box to hold them.  Each card is for a different occasion.  This set would make a great little thank you gift!  The picture below is the box that holds the cards.  It's just a simple box with a belly band to hold it closed.

As you can see from the close up pic- the tulips were stamped multiple times and fussy cut in order to make the tulips appear 3 dimensional.  Unfortunately the pictures don't really show just how beautiful these projects are.  All tulips were colored with the Clear Wink of Stella to add a bit of shimmer.

The first card is a pretty simple card.  I sometimes think that less is more so I wanted to keep it simple.  I inked the flower in Berry Burst and stamped it off onto a scrap paper before stamping on my card stock.  This allowed for a lighter shade of Berry Burst.  I then used Berry Burst again only instead of stamping it off- I used it fully inked to add the floral accents.  The centers of the flowers were given some dimension using the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

My second card is one of my favorites!  I embossed the Lemon Lime Twist background with the Softly Falling embossing folder.    Two tulips were stamped onto the Whisper White layer.  Then I stamped another set of tulips and cut them out to make the tulips "pop" off the card.  

As I was looking at the different images in the Tranquil Tulips stamp set- 2 images in particular stood out to me.  The first one was the larger tulip and the other was a set of teeny tiny dots.  The first thing I thought of when I saw them was a butterfly!  So that's exactly what I made!  

The picture below is a close up.  To create the buttterfly- I stamped 2 of the top tulip layer in Pool Party.  Then I stamped the series of 3 dots along the points in the tulips.  Next- I cut the tulips out and layered them together using glue dots.  The dragonfly body from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set makes the perfect body for the butterfly!
I love how the butterfly landed on the tulip.  So cute!

Last but certainly not least is the 4th card from my set.  I love the pretty Powder Pink blooms!  They pop off the card!  The background was created by stamping the floral accents all over the Fresh Fig card stock in VersaMark ink. 

I hope you have enjoyed my projects for today!  Be sure to check back tomorrow for more beautiful Display Stamper samples!
