Groovin’ With the Go-to Gals: Springy Tulip Cards

Color Headshot Jennifer McG Groovin With the Go to Gals: Springy Tulip Cards

Jennifer McGuire

Hello! Jennifer McGuire here. I am so thrilled with the change in weather lately. The sun is out and the flowers are blooming. Yay! I thought I would bring some of that happiness inside by creating a happy set of notecards with a floral stamp, a bit of texture, and some yummy colors.

These cards came together so quickly but have a lot of interest to them, thanks to the products I used. The colorful pieces are Bazzill’s Dotted Swiss cardstock. I love that this cardstock comes in a pack with three shades per color. And the subtle raised dots? Perfect for adding a little pizzazz to a simple design.

7019001899 9f1dafc62a Groovin With the Go to Gals: Springy Tulip CardsOne of my favorite things about Bazzill cardstock is how nicely clear embossed images show up on them, giving a slightly darker and shiny raised image. This Hero Arts Newspaper Tulips stamp is perfect for the spring and stands out nicely on these yummy Bazzill colors.

7019001389 67372d92c6 Groovin With the Go to Gals: Springy Tulip CardsI decided to use a greeting that would work for many occasions: “love you” from the Technique Tuesday Love Always Wins set. I also embossed this greeting but in white. And yes, you can layer embossing on top of embossing!

Guess what? I have some goodies for a lucky reader! Just leave a comment here by Friday, March 30th at 5 pm MST for your chance to win a pack of Bazzill Dotted Swiss Cardstock and the Hero Arts Newspaper Tulips stamp. Good luck!
