Birthday Tulips~Scroll down for blog candy!!


I got this Hero Arts Tulip stamp in a big lot from eBay a year or so ago. I think it's really pretty, and it won't be back on eBay for quite a while! The sentiment is from A Chemistry With Paper's All Year Bag Toppers. The title is a little deceptive. What I really use it the most for is all the terrific sentiments. They are all in different fonts, too, which I like.

I used Confetti Cream as my base and added some retired SU! DP. I colored the image with markers and a touch of Niji watercolors. To make my hat pin, I just glued a couple of pearls on the end with Diamond Glaze. Works like a charm, and for a FRACTION of the cost of the Pretties kit! Can you see my frugal nature coming out?

Creative Play Stamps carries Dusty Concord Distress Ink, and all the Stickles, and what's life without sparkle?

The Creative Cuts and More Blog Candy will be open until Thursday! So if you havn't hopped, please do, it's fun!!
