CCBH Old Olive: Thank You Flowering Tulips

CCS Logo 2021-22

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 32 – Old Olive

Tonight’s card features the Flowering Tulips Bundle [Flowering Tulips stamp set & Tulips dies].

My card base is Old Olive with a layer of Harvest Meadow DSP (oops it’s retired), but you could use any patterned paper. The next layer is some of the new Vellum Layering Designs but I didn’t glue this down until I had the tulips etc adhered on top of it, so I knew where to add my adhesive so it doesn’t show through.

The tulips are die cut with the Simply Marbleous DSP (free item during Saleabration with qualifying order), and the leaves with Old Olive card.

The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive ink onto Basic White card and die cut using the Give It a Whirl dies, and popped up on dimensionals.

Again, I have added my favourite Brushed Brass Butterflies, as they are the perfect embellishment, especially for a garden scene!

I also made a second card using the Count on Me stamp set and the Inspiring Canopy dies to create this pretty scene. The Thick Basic White card base is coloured using Blending Brushes with Old Olive at the base. I die cut the clouds using the Basic Borders dies and used it to create the clouds at the top with Pool Party ink.

The trees were initially die cut in Thick Basic White card, so I had to colour the trunks with the Crumb Cake Blends Combo Pack. The leaves were die cut in Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive and adhered with glue and black dimensionals. The Sun is coloured with Daffodil Delight ink and a Blending Brush before die cutting and adhering with glue.

The koalas are stamped and fussy cut with Paper Snips and coloured using the Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pens. The fox is stamped and coloured using Blender Pens with Cajun Craze ink (a colour I hardly ever used, but is perfect for my fox!).

  1. Wow to your first card, Kate. The Sale-abration Marbleous DSP looks amazing as the tulip heads – oh my goodness! And I’m loving the new patterned vellum. Such a gorgeous card. Card 2 is so very cute. I love the canopy of trees and the sweet little animals living amongst them.

  2. Oh I hadn’t noticed the vellum layering designs in the catalogue. looks like another order coming up. what a great idea to use the Marbelous DSP for the tulips. It works perfectly. Your second card although completely different is super cute.

  4. Lovely cards Kate. Your first card with the Marbelous tulips is delightful. I love your use of the vellum too. Old Olive and Pear Pizazz on your second card work so well to create the foliage. Love the way you have combined the Count on me stamps with the Inspiring Canopy dies. Xxx

  5. Both of your cards are lovely, Kate. I really like the boldness of the Old Olive sentiment on your first card (and those tulips are gorgeous!). Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz go so well together, to create the gorgeous tree canopies on your second card. 🙂

  6. Ok you genius you! Those tulips look fantastic die cut in the Marbleous DSP! and I love the Layering vellum on your first card too it just adds that little bit of extra dimension and softness all at the same time. The second card is so cute and how good does Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz look together for the leaves! Great to combine that stamp set with that die set as well!

  7. Kate, you are a genius to think of using the simply marvelous DSP to create your tulips! Your second card is simply adorable – what a perfect combination of different stamp sets and dies to create your forest scene!
