Melting away and a new SU card

I haven’t been posting much… I have been melting away with all that heat and the heatpump broken. And that repairman just keeps on not showing up. They promised tonight that it should be tomorrow. I just can’t create when it is so uncomfortable… So I’ll share one of the cards I made for our SU stamp club last month. (I also made a few for a swap at the SU Ottawa show I attended a few weekends ago.).

Here is the card:

Here is the recipe:

The stamp set I used is SU Garden Whimsey.  I stamped the tulip on the SU Whisper White CS 3 times with Old Olive Classic ink (or was it Certainly Celery oops…).  I stamped a few addtionnal leaves only using the Always Artichoke and Old Olive markers.  I stamped the tulip heads only in three different color inks (So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Lavender) on Whisper White scraps.  I cut them out and applied them on top of the green tulips on the CS with foam dots.  I did the same with the snail and Blue Bayou Classic ink (except that it wasn’t already stamped on the card).  The snail is also raised with foam dots.  I cut the Whisper White CS and Pretty in Pink CS with Nestabilities dies.  I embossed the Bashful Blue CS with the Cuttlebug Dots embossing folder.
The bottom pink CS is from the SU Level 1 Hostess gift paper sampler.  The ribbon is SU Certainly Celery.  The ladybugs are also from the Garden Whimsey set and are stamped in Blue Bayou ink.  The greeting is also stamped in Blue Bayou ink on Whisper White CS and punched out with the SU Key Tag punch.

Thanks for looking!
