Tulip Stems and Queen of Hearts…

by Pam Sparks


Thank you So much – white heat embossed on vellum.  So fun that vellum is new again!  I die cut, embossed and colored the Tulip Stems die with Copic Sketch markers… V22, 25, 28 and YG21, 23, 25, 17.

Memory Box Distress Dot violet paper and Violet A-2 Notecard.

I’m entering this card in the CASE Study Challenge #176.

Here’s a close up…

I just had to use this Queen of Hearts die!  Of course you think of black and red with Queen things!  oh and Silver glitter paper is a must! haha

I dry embossed the NEW Flourish Stencil on the red heart and rubbed over it with a little Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool.

Just a subtle look but I like that it’s delicate to go with the fine lines of the die!

This die cuts perfect and beautiful every time!
LOVE is cut with the UpperCase Classic Alphabet… love Memory Box Alphabets!

I’m linking up to Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday

Thanks for stopping by!  Hoping to do a snowman next!  It’s still Winter even though we’re working with all these new flower dies!

  10. Loved both of these, and extremely interested in seeing you use the stencil to emboss. (Video, video, please, please!) I love MB dies, they always cut smoothly, every one that I’ve tried. Just got some of the new stencils, but not time to enjoy as yet. I did manage to look at the videos for Lesson 1 yesterday, but then today was busy again catching up on commitments, and a friend came by with my SU order. Haven’t tried any of the Lesson 1 techniques yet, but I WILL! TFS 2 such lovely cards. Hugs
