3D Tulips

My embossing folder collection has grown a bit more this week. I ordered a couple from Paper Rose Studio and tried out the Tulips 3D folder today. After a few experiments with watercolour paper and neenah cardstock I used the same technique on both these cards with different inks.

The green panel above was done with neenah solar white cardstock and the pink below is watercolour paper. As I didn’t end up adding more than a spritz of water the effect is the same on both panels. I embossed the cardstock then used blending brushes to add Catherine Pooler spruce ink to the card above and bellini to the card below. For added detail and shimmer I used delicata inks direct to the panel, shimmer white over the spruce and rose gold over the bellini.

To complete the cards I added tulip diecuts from Penny Black (promise me II) and sentiment strips from Paper Rose Studio. I have seen printed sentiment strips from a few companies now and decided to try these. They are printed on slightly glossy cardstock and are designed to pair with die-cut words. There are several copies of each sheet of words or phrases so if I botch the cutting I can try again.

I know tulip season is over but I had to give this folder a try. I also know tulips don’t come in green but I think the spruce one is my favourite of the two.

I appreciated all the suggestions and comments about the alcohol ink panels. I am considering a few of the ideas and will do a video as requested as soon as possible. Thank you for taking the time to enter the discussion; I love hearing from you and gathering new ideas.

    I love the wonderful dimension on these. You chose the most beautiful colors to shade the embossing too. What a fabulous effect! I just put that folder on my wish list.

    I love both of these cards. The way you have coloured the 3D card Heather is very effective. I prefer the Spruce coloured one only because there is more of a contrast with the white die cut tulips, and it appears crisper.

    You have Linkdeli on your site and I go there and cannot find the product I want to buy. What are my other options to buying these products?

    What a beautiful and dimensional tulip folder Heather with the added inks and white and rose gold shimmer to finish to make two gorgeous backgrounds to the die cut tulips and white on black embossed sentiment strips. x
