Tulips Side Step Card

Hi Friends!  

I hope all of you are having a great week so far! I had another chance to create a card this week using the Our Daily Bread Designs March 2017 Release stamp set, Tulips along with the Tulip Die, Side Step Die and previously released Custom Dies- Small Bow and Pierced Rectangles.

I love to play along with online challenges and incorporated the Splitcoaststampers CC624 Color Challenge as well as the {PIN}spirational #186 Inspiration Challenge and #thedailymarker30day challenge into the design.

If you have not had a chance to visit the ODBD Blog yet or the other challenge sites yet, I would encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all! 

To create this card:

1). Die cut a piece of green cardstock using the Side Step Die, score and fold the card base.

2). Ink the sentiment from Tulips stamp set with archival black ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock.  Heat set the ink before die cutting and embossing the panel with the Pierced Rectangles Die.

3). Die cut and emboss two rectangles from black cardstock using the next largest die in the Pierced Rectangles Dies, mount the sentiment onto one panel and set aside.  Split the other panel in half and adhere to the large side step of the Side Step card base (overlapping a bit to allow the green cardstock to show evenly).

4). Ink the floral image from the Tulips stamp set with archival black ink, stamp four images onto white cardstock, heat set the ink and die cut with the Tulip Die.

5). Watercolor the floral images with yellow, blackberry and green dye based inks and markers, using a water brush to blend the ink. Add a bit of shimmer to the flower petals using a clear shimmer pen.

6). Adhere the flowers to the small steps of the Side Step card base, add one tulip to the larger side step on the left, mount the sentiment on top of the flower and adhere the last tulip to the card front (making sure that the cut edge of the rectangle is covered).

7). Die cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock using the Small Bow Dies, assemble the bow and mount onto the card front.  Add a few pearls to finish off the card.

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by and visit- hugs and I hope I have inspired you to create something this weekend!
