Polished Pink Tulip Fields

 

Pink is one of my favorite color of tulips.  It just makes them a happy flower.  

We did this card in April's club.  I wanted to use this stamp set, but having every row of tulips a different color just wasn't a possibility.  So, that is why you see the field of Polish Pink tulips.

Some of my people decided they as much as they liked this stamp set, they didn't want to own it.  And that is what club is about.  Using things you normally wouldn't choose to.  It gets people out of their comfort zone and making them try something new.

The blades of the windmill was hard challenging to keep the waste of the Basic White paper to a minimum.  I hate wasting paper.   The tulips are stamped on one piece of Basic White and this is matted on a second piece of Basic White.  I had my club people cut the blades from the mat, second piece of Basic White.  If you put it on looking like an "X" the cut out pieces won't show when you adhere the stamped tulip piece.

I did this stamp set when cutting the base of the windmill.  Cut the base from the Early Espresso the Basic White is adhered to.  No one will know those pieces aren't solid cardstock.  

What's the best way to adhere the Crumb Cake windmill piece to the base?  Adhesive sheets!  Add some to the Crumb Cake  and then cut out with the Cut & Emboss machine.  Instant sticker.  

For the inside, stamp the sentiment and also a few rows of the tulips.
