Yellow Tulips

Here is the third card from the Owl Class. This one has lots of yellow tulips!





Stamps: Happy Greetings
Cardstock: Island Indigo, Night of Navy, Whisper White, Old Olive, Pool Party, So Saffron, Very Vanilla
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo
Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Owl Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Paper Snips, Two-Way Glue Pen.

The card base is Island Indigo cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. The card front was run through the Big Shot in the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A piece of Whisper White cardstock was cut at 2 ¾” x 3 ¾”. This was run through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The Whisper White cardstock was adhered to a 3” x 4” piece of Night of Navy cardstock.

Three owls were punched from So Saffron cardstock and three owls were punched from Very Vanilla cardstock and all of the feet were trimmed off with Paper Snips. The Vanilla owls were cut from the inside of the ear down to the middle of bottom of the owl. Repeat with the other half. You are basically cutting out a small triangle from the center of the owl and you end up with two pieces. All of the owls get sponged with Daffodil Delight ink around the edges.

The sponged Vanilla owl pieces are adhered on top of the So Saffron owls so that the Very Vanilla halves overlapped and were in the center of the So Saffron owls. Three strips of Certainly Celery cardstock were cut at ¼” x 3”. The strips were adhered behind the tulips to create the stem. The tulips were adhered to the Whisper White cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The bottom of the stems were adhered to the Whisper White cardstock with the Two-Way Glue Pen. The stems sticking out past the edge of the cardstock were trimmed off with Paper Snips.


A piece of Old Olive cardstock was cut at 1” x 4”. One of the long sides was punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. This cardstock was adhered over the bottom of the stems and to the Whisper White cardstock. This panel was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The greeting from Happy Greetings was stamped in Island Indigo ink onto a scrap of Pool Party cardstock. The greeting was punched out with the Decorative Label punch. A rhinestone was added to each side of the label and the label was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

That’s all it takes to make some wonderful spring tulips from the owl punch! Thanks for stopping by!
