Welcome to Inspiration Wednesday and I am very excited to share with you a project I have made with the new Tulip Time collection being released today. This is such a beautiful collection and it has something for everyone.
It’s time to shake off the wintertime blues and greet the spring season with the breathtaking Tulip Time Collection from Heartfelt Creations! Energize yourself with a beautifully hued paper collection filled with pastel pinks, pretty purples, sunny yellows and grassy greens…the ideal springtime colors for all of your spring themed paper craft creations! Graceful illustrations of delicate tulip bouquets, elegant flower pot arrangements, and colorful meadow like scenes garnish delicate backgrounds adorned in beautiful brocades, dainty lace like patterns and soft floral images, certain to put a spring in your step and a song in your heart! Rounding out this spring-inspired collection are three blossoming cling stamps sets displaying tender images of budding tulips, an assortment of flower pots ready to hold the first cuttings of the season, as well as a pretty picket fence ideal for building a cheerful garden scene! When paired with the coordinating dies, creating fresh and invigorating springtide embellishments for handmade greeting cards, scrapbook layouts and altered art pieces are accomplished quickly and with ease! A fourth beautifully illustrated cling stamp set featuring breezy tulip petals in varying diameters, along with the coordinating dies and a customized Tulip Shaping Mold, will allow you to surround yourself with realistic replicas of the first flowers of spring! So, join us as we welcome the season of new beginnings with the Tulip Time Collection!
