Love Is Kindness Real Red Tulips

by Joanne James1. April 2021 22:04

Today I'm sharing a late post with a card I made for the current challenges over at Just Us Girls and Time Out:

   

I was totally inspired by those red tulips on the JUGS inspiration photo and when I was rummaging on my retired shelf earlier this week I came across a stamp set that not only had some tulips but also the perfect sentiment for the challenge at Time Out too - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

The retired stamp set 'Love Is Kindness' was perfect for not only the tulips but also that lovely sentiment, which along with a hand-picked bunch of tulips from the garden seemed so fitting for the quote over at Time Out. I stamped it on a scallop stitched rectangle and mounted it on a Real Red card base. Inspired by the greens of the JUGS inspo photo, I also bordered my floral bunch with a light Soft Sea Foam Blends marker and blended it with my Colour Lifter. I don't usually add a halo of green (I usually use blue or grey) and whilst difficult to see on the photo, actually adds a lovely freshness to the card in real life.

 

I kept this stamp as I love that sentiment - after all, without kindness what is there in life? 

I'll be back tomorrow with another project for our new challenge over at As You See It. Until then, happy stampin'!

Just when I think I've seen every tulip set, here comes another that I've somehow missed!  Or maybe forgotten?  
LOvely in red, pops with that subtle wash of green, and yes, the sentiment is timeless!

Lovely, lovely, lovely! I never had this stamp but I wish I did. The sentiment, the perfect image, the colouring and the simple scalloped rectangle add up to a wonderful creation.

I once had that stamp set and adored it! I'm glad you kept it as it definitely deserves a regular spring outing. Your colouring is beautiful and I love the (seemingly) deeper red of your card base. I agree about kindness - it costs nothing and is worth so much. Vicky x

Oh I love that image. I love the way you colored it, the sentiment, scalloped edges and the red card base. Such a perfect make for our challenge at Time Out! Thanks so much for playing with us.
