Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Tulip-tastic

For last week’s Card & Cuppa session, I designed this tulip-tastic project. It was deliberately sentiment-free to allow it to be sent as a pick-me-up to someone who is self-isolating or social distancing . I’ve used Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove for some brighter Spring colours. I’m going to miss these In Colors when they

For the background stamping, an image from the Gallery Grunge Stamp Set provided the detail. As with the other
