Pot of Tulips to Help You Heal

How I love a punch that coordinates with a stamp set! And tulips! And teaching you a fun fold card! It all comes together with my pot of tulips to brighten the day of someone who is recovering from a health challenge:

The flowers pull out so you can write a message below, and still fits inside an envelope:tuliploni

Tip: As you are adding the tulips to the top of your white card stock, lay it on top of an envelope so you adhere the flowers within the dimensions of the sides of the envelope.

When placing an order in my Stampin’ Store, please don’t select “no contact”: I want to send you a hand-stamped thank you card and can only do that if I can see who ordered!

Will you try making this card? Let me know in the comments!

A Bright Welcome to Magnolia Lane

There are iconic sights all over the world: The Eiffel Tower in Paris, the pyramids of Egypt, a great wall in China and now, the Magnolia Lane Suite by Stampin’ Up!

This collection of products has made such a mark on the crafting world that it’s becoming instantly recognizable on the shelves of discerning makers around the world! It’s certainly one of my all-time favorites.

I wanted to use the dies to create something a little different: A piece of home decor that is bright, animated and welcoming!

This was also a masterpiece we created at my Stamp Club in July. It was worth all the cutting (and the fact that I finished season 6 of “Call the Midwife” as I was cutting out hundreds of flowers for my club members).

If you want to make your own, you’ll need to cut two of the large and medium flower pieces for each of the flowers and one of the smallest flower pieces from the Magnolia Memory Dies, then simply curly them with your bone folder and layer using multipurpose liquid glue (the best adhesive for these flowers). The leaves are punched using the crafters essential Leaf Punch and the Stampin’ Up! card stock colors used are: Lovely Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green I finished it off with two of the center starburst die cuts and a “welcome” from the Well Written Dies 

We put the flowers in a frame with a 4″x7″ opening so it bursts forth with joy:  I’m setting it on my piano by the front door for the rest of the summer!

Thanks for ordering the supplies for this project from my Stampin’ Store~ I appreciate your support of my business and hope I’ve inspired you to make one of your own.
