A Bunch of Blue Tulips

Evening Everyone,
I can't believe that tomorrow is the last day of my all too brief holiday at SirStampalot. I must admit that I have had to cut it short this time, but even so it only seems like yesterday when I was being collected from the station.
As usual I have had a wonderful time, and have managed to create quite a few cards for the shop so I hope that I have been of some use.
My share tonight is one such card. It has been made from a piece of background paper created with acrylic paints and the Gelli Plate.
I stamped and embossed Art Impressions Tulip Bunch onto the handmade background paper and then ran it through my Cuttlebug using an embossing folder, having first coloured the tulips with Copic Markers.
The leafy border at the side of the panel uses Sizzix Decorative Accent and Leaves die cut from Dotty Swiss Bazill card stock. I love being able to match things up with papers from the shop even if it does add to my STABLE (see blog post HERE).
The sentiment is from Stampendous Birthday Wish Assortment clear stamp set stamped and embossed using Distress inks and clear embossing powder.
The pre-printed background papers are all from the shop, and the stripy one has been dry embossed using Sizzix Starry Night Embossing Folder.
The corners of the card have been embellished using the Martha Stewart Photo Corner Punch and also a little stamping using Art Impressions Serpentine Background.
I had hoped that my suitcase would be a little lighter going home as I am leaving 4 boxes of cards with them to photograph for their gallery. However seeing the size of the box under my table full of crafty stash I think that that may be a vain hope lol.
Thanks for stopping by,
