Welcome We Love Our Hosts Blog Tour reader! Today I’m participating in a special blog tour highlighting the brand new, host exclusive Stamp Sets!

My favorite new host-exclusive stamp set is Tranquil Tulips. This stamp set is so gorgeous! It’s a 22 piece photopolymer stamp set, which you can layer to create beautiful tulips. You will need some clear blocks to use this stamp set. Stampin’ Up recommends Blocks A, C, G and H.

I also made a cute little treat bag that coordinates with the card. I made this gift bag for my daughters teacher at the end of the school year. We slipped a decorated pack of post it notes inside of the bag and a card for her.

These are the new Striped Treat bags, which feature a gold foil striped design over white glossy paper. The lighter dots are from the fine tip glue pen. Just put a small amount of glue on top of the stamped image (spoiler alert, the glue will make the ink run) and let it dry. I was hoping for a dew effect but instead the drops ended up picking up some of the color.

And, if you look close enough, you’ll notice the right most tulip is a little cattywhampus.

Confession time! This was the first thing I made with this stamp set. And I learned something! And that something was: start with the stems!

I didn’t do too bad for eyeballing it though so I just kind of went with it. It’s handmade! It doesn’t have to be perfect! (Would you have noticed if I said anything?)

Step-by-step guide to stamping using Tranquil Tulips

Step 1: Start with the stems & leaves. Note that there are 2-step stamps for the stems and the leaves but I decided not to worry about those for this card and gift bag. I used Old Olive ink for the stems and leaves.

Step 2: Stamp the tulip backgrounds. I used the brand new In Color, Berry Burst.

Step 3: Using the same color, 2-step stamp the tulip petals over top of the backgrounds. Line up the petals to the bottom of the flowers.

Step 4: Stamp the stamens in a darker ink. I used Rich Razzleberry here. There are 2 stamps for stamens. The one with the larger gap is meant for the larger tulip.

After assembling your card, don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card! I repeated the exact same process outlined above to create the inside of the card. I simply stamped off to the right of the inside layer and stamped only 2 tulips instead of all 3.

  1. Beautiful projects! And I learned two things: 1. that I need to dig out my Fine Tip Glue to make those cool dots; 2. a new word: “cattywhampus” (I assume it means ‘wonky’?)

  2. Love your card. I have already made 6. I’ve enjoyed CASE-ing your beautiful card. Love the colors.

  3. Gorgeous Stacey! Those tulips make a real statement and the gift package with the touch of gold adds a real ‘luxury’ feel to your project. Great stamp tip too!
