Creative Uses with Debby Hughes: Carrot Top Tulips!
Happy Wednesday all! I’m always pleased to welcome back the fabulous Debby Hughes to our blog as a monthly guest where she uses her Simon Says Stamp exclusives in an always fun and creative way! Let’s jump in and enjoy!
Hello, Debby here and today I’m searching out flower shapes from among my supplies to create this soft and subtle tulip card from carrot tops! I think particularly with dies it can be surprising to look and see so many shapes intended for other purposes but which can represent a flower. I used two different carrot tops for these tulips. The flower is the carrot top from Springtime Shapes whereas the stem is from Plush Little Carrot and I added in leaves from the Plush Springtime Chicken die set.
I cut the dies from Pattern Swatches stamped in Apricot and Catkin inks and then mounted them on a Stitched Rectangle with a little Sea Glass ink blended in. I also cut another Stitched Rectangle partially die cut with a Wavy Scallop Stitches die to act as a hill to ground the tulips.
The sentiment is from Friendship Blooms and then finally I added a cloud from the Cloudy Skies set stamped in Fossil which I think tones in really nicely with the Fog card base.
Thanks for joining me today and I’ll see you next time with another look at how to make the most of our supplies :D
