100% Stamped Thank-you Card

Hello friends!
Has spring arrived in your part of the world? It sure has appeared in my neck of the woods.
We now have melted snow, warmer temp and lots of rain.
I am sharing a Spring card that I created yesterday and hope this will brighten your day.
I am using Dazzle Cling Stamp as my example. 
This stamp has the perfect composition for tulip-stamping.
many thanks

I stated out with stamping the tulips leaves and stems. By using all shades of green (with Distress Oxide), the stems and leaves are more life-like. This can be easily done with stamp-positioner like MISTI. The same principle goes with stamping of the bulbs.

many thanks -002

Once I was happy with the stamping, I clear-embossed part of the tulips and ink-blended the Distress Oxide to the background.

many thanks -003

At the end, I couldn't resit using the Pretty Picket Fence for the embellishments. This border die is a must-have if you have lots of floral images.
I will be back for MORE inspiration with the Pretty Picket Fence.
many thanks -004

One thing for sure, I am finally mailing out more cards since I am spending all of my time at home. 
I also keep busy with cooking, cleaning and baking. If you follow my Instagram, you will often see "My Story" showing you what I have been up to with my Lego adventure as well. 
Please stay home and keep healthy.
