Have you been properly introduced to Stampin' Up!'s Tulipe Bigz Die? I prepared two Tulipe cards today to give you the opportunity to build a loving relationship. NOTE: The first uses the cut pieces and the second the remaining stencil. Nifty.
So here's the thing . . . I saw this wonky color scheme on the chair below and decided to commit it to paper.
- If you're not quite ready to walk on the wild side, imagine how sophisticated either of these cards would look in black and white with red accents or a stunning holiday scheme.
- Try layering a pretty piece of designer series paper below the "stencil version" for a tr?s cool "see through" effect.
- When cutting patterned or textured paper with Bigz Dies, remember "pretty side down."
- Stampin' Up! makes Medium Whisper White Square Envelopes (107289, 5 1/2" x 5 1/2") that work delightfully with these 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" cards.
- The heart on the Best Wishes card was created with the Heart to Heart Punch. I was tickled to discover that it was a perfect fit on the tulip top.
- Save the stencil, grab sponges or daubers and ink your way to a gorgeous "painted" design. How about stenciling the new Stampin' Up! Shimmer Paints from the Holiday Mini Catalog (p. 27) for an incredibly cool finish?
DID YOU KNOW? The Bigz Tulipe Die (p. 198 of the catalog) is a Stampin' Up! exclusive design. In addition to paper, Bigz Dies can cut through fabric (quilter's take note), chipboard, vinyl, even thin tin (.008).
