Stampin’ Up! Tropical Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s Memorial Day?  I hope you all enjoyed your day.  It was a beautiful day here. We had a small picnic and enjoyed sitting around just talking and being with people.  My husband was busy with my nieces boys playing bean bag toss and laser tag.  Now it’s back to ‘normal’.  Today is my daughters actual birthday, so I’m hoping to do something with her even if it’s just watching a movie or going for a nice walk.

For today I thought I’d make a tropical card for you using some retiring items and items that are carrying over.  I did use multiple stamp sets for my card. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #373.  Here is their sketch.

I joined in with Seize The Birthday Totally Tropical Challenge #191.

I started by adhering a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Snail. 

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the shoreline image from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set, which I colored using my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the shoreline.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the palm trees 3 times.  I stamped the water image from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set first in Coastal Cabana then in Pacific Point Inks below the shoreline.  I stamped the small grass image from the High Tide stamp set in Garden Green Ink around the base of the palm trees.  I adhered the artwork to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a piece of the Braided Burlap Trim across the artwork using Glue Dots.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink and cut the image out using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front, over the Burlap Trim, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Ukulele Tropical Oasis Trinket to the card front using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in top center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the shoreline image from By The Dock stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set, which I colored using my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the shoreline.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink above the palm tree.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the shoreline image from the By The Dock stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set, which I colored using my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the shoreline.  I stamped the small grass image from the High Tide stamp set in Garden Green Ink around the base of the palm trees.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

  1. I can’t find the tropical oasis trinkets in any book.
    Where did you find them?
    I am in Canada. Maybe you have stuff that we don’t
