Tutti Designs - Tulips in a Jar

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and I'm back with a new Tutti Designs share!

I'm back with another project using the beautiful "Tulip Bunch" die.
You can find it right HERE.

I got so involved in having fun with my card that I completely for got to take photos as I went along. 
I'll do my best to walk you through it...step by step.

Here's the card I made:

I began by cutting the die out of green cardstock.
Using a red marker, I colored the tulip part of the die.

Using a mason jar stamp that I have, I stamped once on grey cardstock,
and then once again on scrap paper. 
I fussy cut the jar ring.
Laying a piece of acetate over the stamped mason jar,
I traced the outline of the jar using a black marker. 
Once the marker had dried, I cut the acetate out just outside the marker line.
Here's a closer look at my jar:

All that was left was the assembling of all the pieces.
I trimmed a couple of the bottom swirly leaves from the die.
I added glue to the back of the die with a glue pen.
I left the top of the flowers free of glue so they could lift up off the page.
It adds some nice dimension.
The "jar" was adhered with a strip of tape across the top and the bottom.
This is all covered up by the jar ring on the top, 
and the sentiment on the bottom.

Finally, I layered it on some pretty paper and then a cardstock base.
Two red enamel dots in the top corners, and it was all finished!

  1. What a beautiful bouquet you created, Nancy! I love how you colored the blooms to be different colored than the stems.

  2. This is just AWESOME! I LOVE how you've created such a realistic scene with this die. And, the little stems curling over the ring on the jar is perfect! What a clever creation ... love it! Fantastic inspiration for us all.

  3. The tulips are so delicate and pretty! Super card!

  4. Your card is beautiful Nancy! Love how you've made your vase to hold the flowers ! The die is lovely and the patterned paper is a perfect match.
