Classic Tulips - Stampin' Up! Flowering Tulips

   I've got a bright and sunshine-y card for this Monday afternoon!  I played along with the Alphabet Challenge and they are on the letter 'X' right now and the challenge is 'Xanthic' which means relating to the color yellow or yellowish. 

  Well I can certainly do yellow flowers this time of year!

  A classic yellow and black color combo should wake up your eyeballs if you're feeling a bit of an afternoon nap coming on!

  I used a Basic Black base and then stamped the back ground using several of the stamps from the Flowering Tulips set and Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody ink and some stamping off for lighter hues.  

 A big bold sentiment was the only thing that could stand up to all this brightness so I stamped the big hello from Biggest Wish in Memento black and cut it out with a Stitched So Sweetly label shape.  I threaded some retired black sating ribbon through some slits on the side of the label and then added a fork bow (Fork bow tutorial here).

  I stamped 2 more tulips and added clear embossing powder to the top layer for some shine and texture.  I cut them out and popped them on dimensionals to the side of the label.  A few black classic matte dots in the corner are the finishing touch.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. You've created a wonderful spring card. The combination of yellow and black is amazing - so bold and bright, and just the right amount of both. I like the tulips in the background and the big hello goes so well with them, but the real eye-cather to me is the black ribbon. The 3D elements give an interesting touch to your project and I'm sure somebody will be happy to receive such a happy note. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

    Hugs, Veronika
