Today my card is for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge. I love color challenges and this one has some great colors; Raspberry Ripple, Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake.
It’s my Spring tulip vase. This card takes about 1 minute longer than “Quick & Easy”, but just as easy, and definitely Clean and Simple.
The tulips are punched from the Owl Builder Punch…I saw these a while ago on The Southern Inkerbellies’ blog, and just adored them. Aren’t they cute as anything? I added this close-up so you can see how the tulip is cut from the punch.
Just punch out two owls, snip off his feet, and sort of swirly cut one for the top layer. You can see how it’s done if you look closely at the picture above.
My vase is one of the Oval Framelits with the rounded ends cut off, and the circles on the vase are also from the Owl Builder Punch. I added a little Linen Thread to the vase for some texture and my sentiment is stamped with Soft Suede ink. Easy and fun!
I truly enjoyed creating this card, and hope you get a chance to punch out a few “tulips”. Spring is almost here!

I’ve been planning to get the owl punch but your card just placed it on my next order form! So “stinking” cute! Thanks for posting and the mini tutorial you graciously shared! I love this in my SU family! Sheila
Shiela, thanks so much for your kind words. The “owl tulips” are so easy, you won’t want to stop making them! Glad you enjoyed this post.
Love your tulips, Debbie! Such a clever use of the Owl Punch! They’re so pretty in their little vase! Great job with the challenge!
