Let's have some crafting fun together!
Step 1: Stamp the tulip petals in all three sizes using different colours onto white card. Color the centres of all the petals with Ranger Archival Ink - Tiger Lily using the Stack and Store Daubers.
Step 2: Using the Tulip Time die, die cut all of the petals and shade the edges of each petal with the Stack and Store Daubers in the same colour you stamped the petal in.
Step 3: Turn each petal over and shade the back with the same colour ink you used to shade the front of the petal.
Step 4: Place the die cuts stamped side down in the 3D Tulip Shaping Mold and spritz with water.
TOP TIP: You can put up to three layers through at once in the mold! A quick and EZ way to create lots of beautiful flowers!
Step 5: Remove the petals from the mold, you can see they are beautifully shaped!
Step 6: Using the piercing tool and mat from the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit pierce a hole into the centre of each petal.
Step 7: Thread a wired stamen through the hole.
Step 8: Using a Hot Glue Gun adhere the petals together placing glue on each side of each petal and bringing them together. Repeat with a second petal.
TOP TIP: Create different effects by adhering the petals loosely or tighter together, the choice is yours!
Step 9: Alternately you could create a more open floral with several stamens in the centre.
Step 10: Stamp the leaves onto white card using the Ranger Archival Fern Green Ink pad and color with the Stack and Store Daubers using Ranger Archival Leaf Green ink.
Die cut using the coordinating dies and shade the edges of the leaves with the Leaf Green ink.
Step 11: Using the shaping tool shape the leaves from the Tulip Vase and Fillers Cling Stamp Set by running the tool down the centre or back of the leaf depending on which effect you wish to create.
Step 12: Wrap Floristry tape around the Tuilips wired stems and create an arrangement of Tulips, perfect for creating a bouquet of flowers!
Step 13: Alternatively shape the stamped images from the Tulip Time Cling Stamp Set by using a left to right motion along the top of the image and running the shaping tool down the centre of each leaf as before.
Step 14: Pierce a whole in the centre of the top of the leaf and thread your tulip through.
Step 15: Using hot glue adhere the wire of the stamen down the back of the image and trim the end of the wire off.
Step 16: Use your beautiful Spring flowers to create stunning projects your friends and family will love! These flowers were used to create a card perfect for any occasion!
