Stampin' Up! Tranquil Tulips Birthday Card

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

I have been sending lots of birthday cards this month, someone turning 60 and a special crafting friend who turned 70 as well as eight other people who celebrated their birthday this month.

My birthday was back in August and I received a beautiful card from Donna Willows, a fellow Pootler, using the Tranquil Tulips stamp set. I decided to case this card for my October birthday cards. I have made it in various different colourways and just love each of them.

Tranquil Tulips, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Birthday card

Although I must admit to perhaps liking this purple one a little more than the others, not sure why that should be!

Tranquil Tulips, Perfect Plum, Rich Razzleberry, Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder

I usually steer away from two step stamping but this stamp set is so easy and very forgiving, I just love the watercolour effect.

Tranquil Tulips, Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Emerald Envy

What do you think?

Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Rose Red, Old Olive, Tranquil Tulips

Which is your favourite colourway?

Thank you for stopping by this week and reading my blog, I do hope you’ve enjoyed it. Until next week.

  1. Each one I saw I decided was my favourite haha, I think in the end I prefer the red and it shouts out to me... but they are all beautiful x

  2. A beautiful display of cards Jillian and a stamp set I haven't used much. Love all your different colourways but of course for me it has to be Number 2. I can't think why!!!

    1. No I can’t think why either! Think you should get playing with this stamp set it’s brilliant xx

  3. A gorgeous selection of this card Jillian, a set I don't own (yet) xxx

    1. Thanks Kaye, sounds like it’s on your wish list though 😂 xx

  4. Loved seeing your design in different colourways - difficult to choose a favourite!

    1. Thanks Jill, I struggle making cards in any other colours than purple, to be honest, so it’s great getting positive feedback on the other colours xx
