This stamp set is called Lotus Blossom, but depending on the colours used, the flowers could easily be mistaken for magnolia, ragged tulip varieties or other Spring blooms!
I only used the one yellow coloured ink - to get the multi tonal effect, I used the "stamping off" technique to get a lighter colour block background to the flower.
Spend £45 and you can get the Lotus Blossom stamp set FREE as part of Stampin Up's Sale-a-bration! Click on the sidebar link to contact me and place an order.

The Painted Petals stamp set has these tiny tulip images. Reminded me of the miniature tulips that poke their heads up late February in my garden heralding the start of Spring.
Couldn't resist a bit of glitter!

Husband's birthday today - gingerbread for breakfast. Not the boys' favourite but then, it's not their birthday! Husband loved it, which was most gratifying after several attempts and tweaking of recipes to bake a gluten free, egg free, dairy free, low fat gingerbread that tasted good!
