Mini 2020 – Timeless Tulips Birthday Wishes

Timeless Tulips Birthday Wishes

When I see tulips, I always think of spring and with our current temperatures being -40C I really NEED to create with this Timeless Tulips stamp set from the 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue!  I used the Stamparatus to get the placement of the flower stems and the leaves exactly where I wanted them.  The Timeless Tulip stamp set is a Distinktive set which means that the shading on the tulips is built into the stamp.  This allows you to stamp once and have a beautiful shaded image.  The stamp set and the punch are bundled to save you 10%. Timeless Tulips

Mini 2020 – Painted Poppies with Vellum

Painted Poppies with Vellum

Here’s another awesome bundle in the 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue!  Actually you’ll find two, yes TWO, awesome bundles on pages 26 & 27 of the catalogue – Painted Poppies Bundle and the Peaceful Moments Bundle!   They have beautiful line-art images accented by watercolour effects, all inspired by a field of poppies.  I’m so grateful to fellow demonstrator, Lillian Kemp of Stamper’s Niche, for sharing her sample card with me so I could recreate it for our monthly card class!

If you look closely at those pages you’ll see four additional products that coordinate with the two bundles.  There are sequins, ribbon, accent elements and coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP) has handpainted blooms and watercolour washes make beautiful backgrounds or focal points – package includes 12 sheets: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs – 12” x 12” (30.5 x 30.5 cm). Acid free, lignin free.  The coordinating colours are Basic Black, Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White.
