Stampin’ Up Tropical Chic Triple Time Technique

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  Is anyone starting to make plans for the weekend?

For today’s card I’ve done a Triple Time Technique card for you.  Take a look.

I joined in with the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge #320.  Here are their colors.

I started by cutting all the panels needed for the triple time technique (measurements below).  I layered the Whisper White panels on top of one another making sure they were all centered with each other.

I then began stamping all the leaves from the Stampin’ Up Tropical Chic Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  Some I stamped full strength, some I stamped off once and some I stamped off twice.  I was able to get 3 different shades of green by doing this.  I stamped a few of the hibiscus flowers from the same stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink some on the panels and a few on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The ones on the scrap I cut out using my Tropical Thinlits Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink in the center of the smallest panel.

Once I was done stamping I began to adhered the Whisper White panels to the Mango Melody mats using Snail.  I then adhered the matted layers on top of one another lining up the stamped images using Snail.  I adhered the cut out hibiscus flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the card front.  I added a few of the Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the leaves from the Tropical Chic stamp set all around a Whisper White panel using Garden Green Ink the same as I did on the card front.  I stamped a few of the flowers from the same stamp set and the sentiment in Melon Mambo Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Mango Melody card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaves and flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set the same as I did for the card on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Tropical Escapes 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope front.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  This stamp set and dies will be in the upcoming 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, but if you want the bundle price with the 10% discount you must order it before June 3rd.  After that you will have to purchase them individually.  Happy Stamping!!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.
