Denim Tulips Card using Stampin’ Up! products

Today’s card is made using the fabulous Hostess Stamp Set Tranquil Tulips.  I have totally fallen in love with this stamp set, no matter what colour you use for the Tulips they always look beautiful.

I always use A4 Thick Whisper White cardstock for my cardbases but we now have A4 Very Vanilla Thick cardstock and 12″x12″ Very Vanilla cardstock in the 2017/2018 Annual catalogue.
The Tranquil Tulips stamp set is 2 step stamping.  When stamping the Tulips I found it easier to stamp the detailed image with ‘first generation’ ink and then stamp the 2nd part of the image with 2nd generation/stamped off ink.

I have DSP and Baker’s Twine but I always forget to use them so I’m trying to incorporate them in my projects.  I coloured a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine with a Dapper Denim marker and I added a strip of DSP from the Color Theory DSP stack.  If you don’t have the Stampin’ Write markers you can colour bakers twine/ribbon by putting a couple of drops of ink refill and some rubbing alcohol into a plastic container.  When colouring ribbon/bakers twine I advise wearing gloves as I always end up with inky fingers.

I wasn’t sure about using Dapper Denim ink for the Tulips, I thought it would be too dark, but I really like them.  What do you think?

* When designing a project or when I CASE a project I always use my cheap cardstock to make a prototype before making it with my Stampin’ Up! cardstock.   I do check the measurements I add to my blog posts but when typing lots of measurements mistakes can be made.  When making any project I recommend making it first with cheap cardstock before using your best cardstock. *
