Build A Blossom Tulips: Scrapbooks for Spring

Spring!  Yay!  The sun is shining (here, at least) and the bulbs are blooming.  Sure makes a person want to make some tulip accents for springtime scrapbooking pages!  This is where the Build A Blossom stamp set (see it online) comes in handy.

Sure, it looks like it’s designed for ‘flower’ shaped flowers, but it turns out to make a pretty cute tulip, too.

For the square accents, I used the Square Lattice Die (see it online) for Big Shot, and added them as a subtle tone-on-tone effect.  Since the colors match, the lattice pieces make great accents, but they don’t take away from the pictures.

TECHNIQUE TIP — Build A Blossom Tulips:

  1. Stamp and punch three of the smallest petal in Melon Mambo ink on Melon Mambo card stock.
  2. Start with the center petal and add adhesive to the front.  Add the next 2 petals to the left and right to form the tulip.  Bases of the petals should meet at the bottoms.
  3. Stamp and punch the large narrow leaf in Wild Wasabi ink on Wild Wasabi card stock.  Cut in half up the middle to form the 2 leaves.
  4. Trim a narrow strip of the Wild Wasabi card stock to form a stem.  Attach stem to back of tulip and add leaves.

Don’t forget to order online today or tomorrow, since the Build A Blossom stamp set and coordinating Blossom Petal Punch (see it online) are in the Occasions Mini Catalog that ends on Saturday, April 30th!

Happy Stamping!
