Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Make the Tulip: Stamp the large and medium flowers onto white card using melon mambo ink and shade from the centre out to create a gradual fade to white at the top using precision daubers. Die cut. Place the die cuts into the mold face down and spritz with water lightly, close the mold and run through the die cutting machine. Remove from the mold, put a small spot of glue in the centre of one set of petals and layer another set on top, push into the centre using the flower shaping kit and pull the paper up to create the tube shape of the flower. Allow to dry thoroughly. Make a hole in the centre of the flower and add 7 rock candy stamens to the centre of the medium flowers and to the larger flowers add rock candy stamens and 3 medium pearl stamens. Repeat with pineapple punch ink to create some large yellow tulips.
Add to the leaves: Stamp the leaves onto old olive card using black ink. Die cut and shade using old olive ink. Roll and shape the head of the stalk and bend forwards. Cut the stamen ends off the bottom of the flowers and using hot glue press the flower heads into the top of the stalk curling the green around the base of the tulip. When the hot glue has dried gently shape and lift the leaves.
Cut a triangle of grey board approximately 6" x 5" and round the wide edges. Cover with yellow paper from the pad.
Layer the tulips onto the grey board, securing them with hot glue at the base of the stem only.
Stamp filler flowers and leaves onto the yellow and pale pink papers using black ink. Die cut and lightly shape using the flower shaping tools. Add dries clear ink to the filler flowers and dip into crystal clear to add some sparkle. When dry add to the bouquet using wet glue.
Cut 2 squares of florist wrapping paper approx. 16" square and add a slightly smaller piece of tissue paper between fold diagonally in half. Hot glue the grey board in place. Wrap the papers around the tulip bouquet and roll down at the sides. Secure the folds in place using hot glue.
