Tulips Thinking of You Card

Since spring is blooming here, I pulled out my tulips stamp. I am waiting rather impatiently for my tulips to bloom – maybe it will be TODAY.

When I stamped the tulips, the ink would not dry…I ultimately had to pull out my heat gun to dry it. I didn’t realize until I was photographing that the paper I thought was Neenah white card stock was Bristol card stock – OOPS. Not what I intended.  (And it bothers me that the whites don’t match – but that is a personal problem!  🙂  )

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! YoYo Yellow (retired), Strathmore Bristol, Taylored Expressions Cookie Monster, inks – Stampin’ Up! Coastal Cabana (retired), Gumball Green (retired), YoYo Yellow (retired), VersaFine Clair Twilight, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Simon Says Stamp (banner), embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.
