Tulip Thank You


I was on my way to bed when I passed by my craft room, where my new Papertrey Ink goodies caught my eye.  I couldn't resist playing with them for a bit.  I used my new Stitches & Swirls stamp set with white ink on kraft cardstock to create my background.  The sentiment is from a surprise set that was included with my December PTI order.  Apparently it was sent to some of the first customers that ordered at the December release.  A very nice surprise!

The grass was created with the Martha Stewart Icicle Punch.  I learned a lesson tonight.  Fresh Snow ink turns light blue on Pinefeather cardstock.  It doesn't look quite as bad in person, but still a little strange.  Oh, well.


I created my tulips using the Flower Fusion #11 die and stamp set.  To get the subtle pattern on the flowers, I stamped with Versamark ink.
