Today I created a quick little birthday gift for a friend of mine who celebrated her birthday last week. She's one of those people who appreciates the things that I make, so I don't mind making things for her. I had told her that I was going to create 4 blocks throughout the year for her. Seasonal blocks. I gave her the Winter block at Christmas time, so now it's time for Spring!
I looked online to see what flowers bloom in the spring and see if I had any Kitchen Sink Stamps in that flower. I saw tulips, and pulled out the 3 Step Bitty Tulip Bouquet. There are two different size tulips, so it was perfect! I utilized both sizes, one for the block and the other for the card.
Tulips: 3-Lady Bug (Memento); 2-Lady Bug (stamped off); 1-Lady Bug (stamped off twice); 4-Rhubarb (Memento); 5-Cherry Cobbler (SU!)
Stems/Leaves: 3-Bamboo Leaves (Memento); 2-Bamboo Leaves (stamped off); 1-New Sprout (Memento); 4-Cottage Ivy (Memento)(stamped off once on the card only).
Card: Cherry Cobbler (SU!), white
Block: Marina Mist (SU!), white, green felt (MFT), Lovely Lavender (retired SU!)
Card: Scor-Pal dry embossing; brushed gold brads; oval nestabilities; Antique Linen (Ranger) Distress ink, Inkssentials Blending Tool, Inkssentials Blending Foam
