Tulip Birthday Card | Beautiful Bouquet | Aussies Who Love Stampin' Up! Challenge #009

Hi and thanks for visiting :)

Today marks the start of our latest fortnightly challenge over on the Aussies Who Love Stampin' Up! Facebook Group.

Our ninth challenge #AWLSU009 is a CASE the Catty challenge.

Take any inspiration you like from the cards below. Could be layout, colour scheme, stamp set. Your choice.

Myself and the other group admins will share our creations to start off each challenge and hopefully help kick-start and inspire your creativity.

For my cards, I took inspiration from the card layout of the Bunch of Blossoms Thank You card in the top left of the above image.

Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight & Garden Green colour combination

To create my cards I stamped the leaf & flower stem images from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set multiple times on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Garden Green ink. I then stamped and die cut out the 2 tulip images, 5 of each in Flirty Flamingo & 5 of each in Daffodil Delight. The 2 pieces were glued together and then glued to the top of my stamped flower stems.

The sentiment, also from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set, was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist & Calypso Coral on strips of Whisper White and then the end was trimmed off using the Triple Banner punch.

I have used a small piece of the Ombre Ribbon, in Lemon Lime Twist & Calypso Coral, which was attached to the colour matching sentiment banner, before it was adhered on top of the bunch of Tulips on each card.

Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist & Garden Green colour combination

It is funny how you can let your craft products decide your colour combinations. I created my tulips first and then chose the second main colour for each card based on which ribbon I wanted to use.

I never would have thought to combine Flirty Flamingo and Lemon Lime Twist together, but thanks to my ribbon selection I tried the combo and I must say I quite like these 2 colours together.

Which is your favourite card/colour combination?

  1. My favorite is the Lemon Lime Twist and Flirty Flamingo. You have inspired me to get this set out and use it. I've only used the sentiments for that set and even forgot I had the dies! Thank you for sharing. I hope to be able to CASE it.

    1. Thanks so much Karen :) I too love the sentiments in this set, but there are some lovely flowers too. This was actually the first time I'd inked up those tulip stamps. Very happy for you to CASE this - if you need any extra details, please feel free to get in contact with me.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. You have made my day :)
