Tulips and Easter just go together! When I think of tulips the thought of Spring and Easter comes to my mind. This year for my Easter cards I used the Timeless Tulips stamp set from the Stampin' Up! annual catalog. I was so excited when I saw that this stamp set was going to be in the new annual catalog.
Everywhere you look when you go in to stores, you will see the color purple. Which is okay with me! I also wanted to use the beautiful Hydrangea Hill designer series paper. I did use a retired stamp set for the sentiment.
Look what a fun fold this card is! It is an easy fold that gives your card that Wow effect.
To make this project you will need the following paper. For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper

On this card I stamped the tulips with the Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green inks and added Wink of Stella to the flowers and leaves.
On my second card I stamped the tulips with the Gorgeous Grape ink and the leaves and stems with the Granny Apple Green ink. I couldn't decide which ink to use, so I was using both of them. I then added Wink of Stella to the flowers. Look how they have a pinkish tint to them. It was so weird when I put it the Wink of Stella on them, how it changed the color. It was also really neat watching how it changed the color.
Here is a picture with both cards together, so you can see them next to each other. Look how the top one (stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink) has pink in it. The bottom card was the one stamped with the Highland Heather ink and there was no change to it. Crazy! I tell ya, just crazy! But cool at the same time.
I added the beautiful Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon around the card and tied a bow. I used the ribbon to hold the card closed.
