Hello and Welcome to the January Home Decor Stampin’ Up! Style Blog Hop.
Those hopping today are Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world who enjoy making home decor items using current Stampin’ Up! Products and this month’s theme was open for the hop participants to choose themselves.
I’m featuring the Timeless Tulips Bundle in a clean and simple project today.
Vase of Timeless Tulips
I have created a vase of tulips using both InColor Collections.
This project was kept really simple – as this was a quick project to have as part of my displays at my catalogue launches over the weekend.
Crafting time has been limited in the leadup to these launches which were postponed from earlier in the month due to my Dad passing away. So while I would have usually added ribbons and some other embellishments, I decided the quick simple look actually highlighted the tulips. And I got lots of comments and questions about them at the launches – so I’m really pleased I left them as in and included them in my displays.
(Note: see the Product List below for images & links to more information about the items)
Stamp sets: Timeless Tulips
Paper/card: 2018-2020 InColors, 2019-2021 In Colors

Non-Stampin’ Up! Items: Mini Terracotta Pot, Florist Wire, Florist Foam, Planting Moss
Additional Project Photos
Here’s a couple of closer shots so you can see that each tulip is made up of six punched tulip shapes which have been stamped.
To construct these, I cut and stamped six petals for each flower. Then I folded them in half, applied Tombow Multipurpose glue. and stuck them together – wrong sides together. I did two sets of three petals, then put a piece of Tear & Tape on one half to secure the stem (Florist wire).
There are two stamped leaves attached with glue dots on each stem.
The Mini pot had some florist foam placed inside. The tulip stems were pushed into the foam and then some planting moss was spread around the surface.
Even the Purple Posy Tulip is stamped. You may be wondering how I did that as the Purple Posy Ink Pad and Refill have been discontinued. Easy Peasy – you can use Highlander Heather – just stamp it off on scrap paper to lighten the colour before stamping your project.
The colour and lighting are not great – but if you look in the photo below of my launch party display you may notice there are no leaves on the tulips! I didn’t get time to add them before the launches this weekend – but I another launch party coming up in Napier and several other events – so I’ve added them now!
Now it’s time to see what projects the other blog hop participants have shared today.
