Today we are showcasing four different Petite stamp sets all illustrated by Nancy McKinney.  The one I’m featuring is a beautiful and super versatile little set called Spring Tulips.  It includes this gorgeous bouquet image along with a single tulip and 4 sentiments.  One of the great things about tulips is that they come in so many different colors, so you have lots of choices!

In the last week or so I’ve noticed several cards on blogs and Pinterest that used round windows (like this one by Maile Belles and this 3rd one down by Iwona Palamountain.) I love making window cards, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon.  I used a circle nestie to cut a window out of a TE Choice Snow White panel (4″ x 5.25″) and then I embossed that panel with the Houndstooth/Damask Impression Plate.  I wanted to create a frame for my image so I die cut a Layering Doily Die – Large from black cardstock.  Then I took the same circle Nestie and cut that out of the center of the doily die cut.  That created this beautiful frame which I adhered with a glue pen.  Taylor’s Tiny Twinkles were added with the help of Embellie Gellie and Glossy Accents.

The image was stamped directly on the card base and colored with Copics.  Then the embossed and framed panel was adhered with foam tape for dimension.  Since I got excited and forgot to stamp my sentiment before I embossed the panel, I decided to stamp it on a separate scrap of cardstock and punch it out with an SU small oval punch.  Patterned paper is My Mind’s Eye 6×6 Miss Caroline Dolled Up.  I actually started with that strip of paper and chose my Copics from there.

I think I’ll be using this wonderful little set quite a lot!  It’s easy to color and can be used for so many things!!
