Stamp Focus: Exotic Tulips

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hi friends!

Svitlana is here. Today I will be focusing on the recently released Exotic Tulips Stamp Set. This set is packed with images to stamp three-layered tulips of different sizes and shapes, a stem and two leaves. There is also a couple of sentiments in this set.

6x8 Exotic Tulips 1

I made three cards using this beautiful set.

Altenew Exotic Tulips Svitlana ShayevichFLORAL FRAME

For my first card, I went with a one-layer design, stamping kind of a floral frame around a horizontally oriented A2 card.

Altenew Exotic Tulips Svitlana Shayevich Monochromatic 01I made the card base out of a Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. The design was stamped using dye inks from the Deep Blue Seas Oval Set. Each flower of this set has three layers, I was alternating the colors from the ink set to make tulips of different shades. For some, I was skipping the bottom layers to achieve white flowers with a blue pattern.

Altenew Exotic Tulips Svitlana Shayevich Monochromatic 02When I stamped the flowers, I was placing them in such a way so they don't overlap. So no masking was involved on that step.

Next, I stamped the stems and leaves, using Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake and Lagoon Crisp Dye Inks. These elements all have two layers each and I was alternating inks to get elements of two shades, darker and lighter.

Altenew Exotic Tulips Svitlana Shayevich Monochromatic 03To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment in the middle and added several clear droplets.

PINK TULIPS IN WOODGRAIN BACKGROUND

For my next card, I went a bit more layered and more complicated. To start off, I made a lot of tulips of the same design (the smallest one from the set) as well as leaves and stems. First, I die cut all elements out of white cardstock using the coordinating dies.

Altenew Exotic Tulips Svitlana Shayevich Woongrain 01I did 8 die-cuts of the tulip head and about the same about of each leaf and stems. Next, I placed each element in a corresponding negative space in the paper piece they were cut out of, which was inside on my mini MISTI. Then I stamped each layer on all elements, replacing them in the negative space. After that, I moved on to the next layer.

This made producing such number of elements a pretty quick task. Die-cutting all of them didn't require a lot of attention and I only was aligning each stamp once to stamp all the elements.

Altenew Exotic Tulips Svitlana Shayevich Woongrain 02To stamp the heads, I used Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, and Ruby Red Crisp Dye Inks, for stems and leaves, Grass Field and Shadow Creek Crisp Dye Inks were used.

Altenew Exotic Tulips Svitlana Shayevich Woongrain 03Then I cut a panel out of a Woodgrain Powder Cardstock and made wood planks onto it. I was masking off an inch-wide area using two pieces of a painters tape and blended between the tape strips with Sand Dunes and Rocky Shore Crisp Dye Inks. Then I masked off an inch-wide area next to it and did the same. And so on.

Altenew Exotic Tulips Svitlana Shayevich Woongrain 04I adhered all stamped die-cuts onto the panel and then foam mounted the panel onto a white card base. Finally, I die cut a sentiment using the Simply Hello Die and popped it onto the card, which I finished off by adding several clear droplets.

TEAL AND ORANGE

My last card I made using a rather bold color combo of teals and oranges.

Altenew Exotic Tulips Svitlana Shayevich Teal And Orange 01I started by coloring a white panel by pressing a Galactic Stream Crisp Dye Ink onto it until I covered the whole panel. Next, I blended the same ink onto the panel through the Spring Garden Stencil.

Altenew Exotic Tulips Svitlana Shayevich Teal And Orange 02I stamped two tulip heads using Orange CreamAutumn Blaze and Firebrick Crisp Dye Inks. Next, I “color” the area around the stamped images by blending Galactic Stream Crisp Dye Ink. I masked the flowers using the matching mask stencils. After that, I die-cut them using the matching dies.

Altenew Exotic Tulips Svitlana Shayevich Teal And Orange 03For leaves and stems, I went simpler. I first blended the Teal Cave Crisp Dye Ink onto a white panel, die-cut the elements, and stamped onto them using the Teal Cave and Galactic Stream Crisp Dye Inks.

I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base and adhered the elements onto it using a liquid adhesive.

Altenew Exotic Tulips Svitlana Shayevich Teal And Orange 04I die-cut a sentiment out of white cardstock using a die from the Script Words 2 Die Set and colored it using Firebrick and Autumn Blaze Artist Markers. After that, I foam mounted the sentiment onto the card using black adhesive foam.

Altenew Exotic Tulips Svitlana Shayevich Teal And Orange 05Lastly, I added several white crystals onto the card.

Thank you, Gillian. You can buy them basically from any store where small embellishments (sequins, crystals, confetti) are sold. Mine are from Studio Katia.
