Spring is here with lots of tulips

Hello, Hetty here again with some cute little cards.

Spring has arrived in my art room! Not outside though….too much rain and very heavy winds today. So it was a good day to start using my new distress oxide inks for these ATC’s. I used the tulip stamp set. For each card I used another color. After stamping the tulip. I covered it with a post it note image. Then I stamped with the same color the text behind it. If you want to see more detailed pictures, please hop over to my personal Craftchaos blog.

Now as for the gemstones, don’t they fit nicely and are the same color? Well, I used the same colors of distress markers to color the gemstones before I glued them to the card.

Thanks for looking and have a creative day!





Hi there! Leah here with you today and I am sharing a fun spring card. Spring is my favorite time of year and I love flowers regardless of the season so I really enjoyed creating this one!

I cut a piece of watercolor paper and stamped the gorgeous Framed Tulip in Versafine Onyx Black ink. That ink is great for watercoloring, it won’t bleed at all! I then stamped the lovely sentiment stamp, Happiness is to hold flowers in both hands. I used my Tombow markers to color the image. I started with the backgound using a really pale blue and then moved to the flower. In general I find it’s best to start with your background. For the tulip I started with a peachy color and layered on a darker red and then used a slightly wet brush to blend them together. The leaf was done in the same way with a dark green and a light green.

To finish it I used some jute twine and tied a bow and then added a lovely tiny white paper rose from B.Muse. Some machine stitching and patterned paper brought it all together. I hope you find some happiness today! Thanks for joining me.



Hello everyone, Kia  here with you today.  Last week I used this same stamp called Framed Tulip, but in a different way and with different colours. Today I have used much deeper colours and sponged on just a tad of the yellow for this one layer card.

I coloured the image with markers and spritzed with water, doing the colours individually to ensure I would not get any bleed.  I then inked up the tulip a second time and stamped without spritzing to get more definition from the tulip. Once I finished the tulip, I sponged on yellow ink in the bottom corner going up the side just slightly.  As I wanted to use this for a birthday card, so I added the birthday sentiment in intense black ink.

To add a bit of sparkle, that unfortunately does not show up in the picture, I added Wink of Stella on the tulip, then added my signature sequins in clear. The sequin along the stem on the right looks like a mistake, it is not, just a seqin that does not look like a sequin. Oh well … stuff happens eh?

Thanks so much for visiting the Art Neko Blog today and I hope you enjoy this card.
