Positive Inkers Global Design Team - April 2022

Hello there stamping friends! I’m thrilled to be blog hopping today with the Positive Inkers Global Design TeamWe are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the globe who are super-excited to share our love of creativity. I’m so happy you stopped by today! 

If this is the fist time you are visiting, please let me introduce myself. My name is Anne Marie Hile and I live in San Antonio, Texas. Welcome! 
Our theme for this month is: Flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog. There are SO many beautiful floral sets in the January - June Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog! I decided to create with the Flowering Tulips stamp set and coordinating Tulips Dies for my card. 

*I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my cards below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post.
Color Combo: 
Random question…do you watch or listen to anything while you create? Or do you just enjoy the silence? I’m usually either listening to a podcast or rocking out to my favorite tunes. The type of music varies with my mood but I’m always down for a good true crime podcast. Occasionally, I binge watch a series on Hulu or Netflix but for the most part, I like to create when all I have to do is listen, not watch. It helps to keep me focused on my card. Please share what your crafting “ambiance” looks like in the comments on this post. I’m curious. 

This is the second time I've inked up this stamp set and It’s absolutely stunning, especially during the spring season. The stamps layer together beautifully to add so much texture to the stamped flowers.  

I’ll be sharing how to make this card on my Facebook Live tomorrow (4/1) if you’d like more details on how to put it together.

**Edited to add, watch the Facebook Live replay below:

  1. Second time tonight I've come across that beautiful paper - it's just gorgeous and those pretty stamped blooms are the perfect accompaniment. I'd love to craft in silence but there's always the TV on in the background. My ultimate dream is a self-contained craft studio away from any noise lol

  2. Very pretty card! My late FIL loved red tulips and I always think of him when I see them.

  3. Beautiful in all its details. Love it!

  4. Beautiful card Anne Marie! And I love the background you created with the Blending Brushes!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment!
Have a great day! :)
