Timeless Tropical

Hi Friends,

Today I'm sharing a card I made with the Timeless Tropical Bundle.  The gorgeous colors in the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper are what initially drew me to this fresh and cheerful.

This is just one of many cards I've created using the Timeless Tropical stamps & dies -

Here are the details:

Soft Suede card base, 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
So Saffron 4" x 5-1/4"
Whisper White panel for the inside 4" x 5-1/4"
Whisper White panel for the outside 2-3/8' x 3-3/4"
Soft Suede Stitched Rectangle 2-5/8" x 4"
Designer Paper 2" x 4"

I stamped the palm trees on the So Saffron cardstock twice using So Saffron ink.  The sun is created by punching a 2" circle in a Post-It sticky note and using it as a mask, sponge the sun with Mango Melody ink on a sponge dauber.  The sentiment and palm trees in front of the sun are stamped in Early Espresso.

The leaves and flowers are all die-cut using the In The Tropics dies (part of the bundle).  A glue dot is all that's needed to hold the small pieces in place.  The stamped oval sentiment is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.


I love the Black Stampin' Dimensionals Combo Pack.  The black color virtually disappears under your embellishments and having 2 sizes to choose from means you always have the size you need!

On this one, I added a Tropical Oasis Trinket from the Suite and a couple more leaves and flowers to take up the extra space on the oval.

The Gang's All Meer

Hi friends,

Happy New Year!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday season.  Now that the tree is down and the last cookie has moved from the freezer to my hips, it's time to get back in the craft room!

It's that other most wonderful time of the year - Sale-A-Bration!  With every $50 purchase, you get to choose a free item from a sweet selection of exclusive new products.  My favorite freebie is a cute little stamp set called "The Gang's All Meer".

This is a simple line-art stamp set but these little guys have so much character-they remind me of Timon from the Lion King!

I actually find myself humming Hakuna Matata whenever I use this stamp set, lol! 

I used Stampin' Blends in Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green & Flirty Flamingo for the coloring.

This card uses the masking technique.  First I stamped the lizard, single meerkat & cactus.  Then I stamped them again on a sticky note & cut the images with paper snips.  I used the sticky note images to cover my stamped images on the card, then stamped the group of meerkats on top of the sticky notes.

I love this stamp set for cards from a group.  One of the sentiments with it is "from all of us" - perfect!  And best of all, it's free with your qualifying purchase!
