Tulip One Sheet Wonder

Tulip One Sheet Wonder

Welcome everyone! So happy you are stopping by today. I’m very excited to share my tulip one sheet wonder. Have I mentioned that stamping a one sheet wonder is one of my favorite things to do? It’s so relaxing and it always makes me feel like an artist. All the images and color melding together into a sheet of beautiful designer series paper gives me such joy. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Yep, I stamped that!!! I love the way it turned out. I’ve used the Timeless Tulips, Very Versailles and Forever Fern sets to create my Tulip One Sheet Wonder. My color combination consisted of Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Highland Heather, Blushing Bride, Soft Sea Foam and Old Olive. Creating the DSP was only step #1 in the process. Because I had a friend in mind while stamping this one, I knew one of the cards would be for her.

But I didn’t create just one card, I created three! I could have gotten four standard sized cards, but I wanted to create a slimline in the process.  Let’s start things off by breaking down the pretty thank you cards.

All the sentiments, for all three cards are from the beautiful Queen Ann’s Lace set. That one is a sleeper in my opinion. Let’s wake it up, it’s carrying over to the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

Because the Playing with Patterns ribbon pack will be retiring, I’ld scoop up some of that now. This one is soft and so easy to tie. Not only that, it’s on sale and the pack contains three different bolts of ribbon.

When creating your cards, don’t throw away any bit of the lovely paper. I’ve used a scrap to dress up the inside of my card. Next up, let’s take a look at the gorgeous slimline. I’m pretty proud of this one. I can’t wait to mail it off to my friend.

Did you miss that gorgeous heart die cut from the Floral Heart die set? Don’t worry, it’s in the Jan-June Mini Catalog. That publication will be around until June 30th.

The slimline will fit in a standard size business envelope. By mimicking the stamping from the one sheet wonder, I’ve dressed up a rather plain envelope and taken it to the next level.

Those pretty pastel pearls are another keeper. They will also be in the new catalog! Hooray!!

It didn’t take much to make the inside of the card special. The Timeless Tulips stamp set is so lovely. Currently, it is sold as a bundle with a coordinating punch. Both products will carry over to the new catalog, but not in a bundle format. If you love it, don’t miss out on the current 10% bundle savings.

There are so many different coloring tools in our crafting arsenal, you choose the one you like best. The focal mat was colored with our spectacular Blending Brush. Our sponge daubers came in handy to color the gorgeous floral image.

Mixing it up with Hydrangea Haven

Mixing it up with Hydrangea Haven

Welcome back everyone! Let’s mix it up a bit with the Hydrangea Haven bundle today.  I love teaching different ways to stretch your supplies and crafting budget.  We’ll be using the Hydrangea dies along with a couple of punches to create a stunning little bouquet.

Hydrangea Haven, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Let’s break things down a little bit so you have the best info. Why? Well, we are in the middle of retiring the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and launch a new one. There are things retiring, while some will carry over. First things first, the stunning Hydrangea Haven bundle is carrying over and with a 10% bundle discount!! That’s very exciting news.

Hydrangea Haven, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

I’ve also included a couple of retiring products. The Butterfly Duet punch is currently on sale at a steal of price, $7.20. In the embellishment category, the Gold Hoops will go as well. But they too are on sale, $6.75 for a package of 10.

Hydrangea Haven, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

We are super lucky, because the Jan-June Mini Catalog doesn’t retire until June 30th. That means the gorgeous Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper will be around a bit longer. But don’t wait, it will not be in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

Hydrangea Haven, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Now, I’ll bet you’re asking, how did you create those sweet little flowers. Well, since the Small Bloom Punch is retiring, I had to find a replacement. Strawberry Builder Punch to the rescue. However, I do need to tell you that it has been a very popular punch. So much so, it is currently not orderable. A new shipment is expected to the Stampin’ Up! warehouse during the week of April 19th.  (Fingers crossed!) Even better news, the entire Sweet Strawberry Bundle will carry over to the new Annual Catalog with the 10% savings. Woohoo!!!!

Ready for your FREE video tutorial? I know it’s been a hot minute since I’ve been with you. Unfortunately, I’m still battling my second bout of shingles. Back to the eye doctor tomorrow. Let’s pray for significant improvement so I can get back to the things I love. That’s sharing new designs and ideas with all of you.

Here’s how the magic happens.

  • Card Base – Thick Basic White CS – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored @ 4 1/4″
  • Mat – Gorgeous Grape CS – 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
  • DSP Mat – Hydrangea Hill DSP – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Sentiment – Vellum CS – 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″, cut with the die from the Layering Circles die set
  • Flowers – Hydrangea Hill DSP – punch 7 flowers with the Strawberry Builder Punch; Highland Heather CS – 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ cut two strips of small flowers with the die from the Hydrangea die set.
