Tulips for your Birthday


Happy Saturday Friends!

Having a little fun today with a couple challenges and I'm very happy with the outcome.  Those challenges are the Altenew Inspiration Blog color challenge ...

 and The Flower Challenge #53 to use your latest tamps or Dies.

It just so happens I made a recent purchase at the Altenew Store where I bought their Exotic Tulips Stamp and Die Bundle.

Exotic Tulips Stamp & Die BundleThis was my first time using 'layering' stamps and thank goodness I own the Tonic Studios stamping platform ... made this process far easier I think then if I were trying to line it up using the stamps on an acrylic block.

 I also bought the Rose Bundle so you'll be seeing creations in the near future using that beautiful set.  I could probably get addicted to these layering stamps so I'll have to be very, very careful!  LOL
BFF Diane (Nellie's Nest) invited me to participate in these fun challenges so be sure to pop over and check out her project too ... really pretty!!!

Have a wonderful weekend ahead!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

As always . . .



  1. Beautifully created card, love the pretty background too, my goal is to own LOTS more of these amazing layered stamps, how about you lol?? I certainly hope my first attempt with this set turns out as pretty as yours!

  2. Your card is gorgeous. Love the colors and the paper you used. I love layering stamps to and yes it really helps to have some kind of stamp positioner. Makes a big difference. Hope you are staying safe and warm.

  3. Darlene this card is absolutely gorgeous! What wonderful colors on those tulips. You did an amazing job with them.

  4. Yellow and purple make a gorgeous combination on the tulips! So classy! Great take on the color challenge! Thank you so much for joining us at The Flower Challenge!

  6. You did a great job of lining them up, such pretty flowers and papers to go with them! What did we ever do before our stamp positioning platforms, I love my MISTI!

  7. I think you could get very addicted when they come out this pretty! I can never make up my mind when I spot something I love, so I end up with several. Yup, got a basketful!

  8. What a wonderful card Darlene, love how you have used these challenge colours!
