Operation Write Home is a network of cardmakers who create blank handmade greeting cards in support of our nation's heroes for them to write home on. Operation Write Home recently started a new blog, Stars and Stamps, to inspire the many cardmakers. The Stars and Stamps blog features inspiration, challenges, tutorials, creativity and more! Operation Write Home is currently hosting a Half and Half challenge to inspire cardmakers to create Mother's and Father's Day cards.
Fred, She Said Designs is offering a FREE Tulips digital stamp for Mother's Day and I have been asked to write a tutorial for using the free image today on the Stars and Stamps Blog. Please check it out and also the latest Half and Half Operation Write Home Campaign.
I printed the Tulip Trio on Whisper White cardstock, then cut out the right side of the image. I colored with Copic Markers and sponged Memento Sky Blue ink onto the left side of the colored image to represent "sky". I then added self-adhesive rhinestones and a peel-off sticker butterfly. With a Photo Corner Punch by Martha Stewart, I made two photo corners from a scrap of pink dotted paper by The Paper Studio. I attached them to the upper and lower left corners and added self-adhesive square rhinestones. I adhered this panel to a butterfly embossed white cardstock by Bazzill, then glued it to a soft rosy pink card. I added a pretty bow to finish the card. Card size is 4 1/2 x 6 1/4 inches.
