It’s Thursday, so it’s Share A Swap Card day… today I have a duo of projects for you that features the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set from the Spring Catalog. Both of these lovely and uniquely different cards came to me through swaps with upline team demonstrators. I really love to swap cards and get new ideas. I hope you enjoy each of these cards as I take you through the designs.
Card 1 – Happy Birthday by Molly James
Here Molly has stamped direct to a sample of the designer series paper from the Tropical Oasis paper. It took me a while to identify where it came from but here is the piece.

One great feature of the two sided DSP is that one is usually a large print, and the other a more muted pattern.
This makes for a simple card layout. Card base in Whisper White. Add a muted sample of DSP. Select a coordinating color of ink. Stamp your images, and add a little sparkle if you wish. Here she used a Wink of Stella brush to add just a little glimmer.
The other fun part of this card is the added texture stamping around the main image. Molly used the Artisan Textures stamp set to achieve this.
Card 2 – Just Tulips by Phyllis Leeling
Okay, here is a sample by Phyllis from my up-upline of demonstrators. Here we have a collection of tulips in all different colors, stamped on the Very Vanilla cardstock. If you look closely, you can see that the images overlap. This would have been achieved by masking off images before stamping the layering images.
Steps to Masking Of Technique:
- Stamp the image onto a sticky note, or scrap paper. I like the sticky note, so it will stay put when you put it on your project, and come up easily again.
- Then trim the image, and use it to mask off the first image stamped, so that you can stamp a layered image next to or overlapping without overlapping the ink.
- The mask can be used multiple times to achieve many laying images.
- The full image looks the closest, and the masked images look layered behind.
Okay, once the stamping was done… she embossed the stamped image with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder. A great way to add texture to the card, without adding bulk!
Next she has layered the embossed panel on a Pretty Peacock cardstock. She used the Stitched Rectangular Dies for this layer. Then all the layers are mounted on the Rococo Rose card base.
