Stampin’ Up! Tropical Leave Monochromatic Card

Good Monday morning stamping friends welcome to the new week. What did you do for Mother’s Day? Were you able to relax or craft a bit? Maybe spend some time outside gardening? I hope you had dinner made for you or were taken out. We went to the Extreme Experience for my husband to drive the racecar. He had a blast. He was able to get the car to 137mph. The whole thing was recorded from inside the car, so we watched it when we got home. He was able to keep up with the pace car the whole ride. It was a perfect gorgeous day here. I even got a little color from standing in the pit area.

I have a quick and easy card today that’s pretty clean and simple too. I’ve used some of the Online Exclusive products for it. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Tropical Leaf Monochromatic 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Online Exclusive Tropical Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Online Exclusive Designer Tags Dies and the new Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches #585.

I started by adhering 4 strips of Countryside Inn DSP to a Night of Navy card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Leaf stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the center of the Night of Navy card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Designer Tags Dies, I cut the sprig from a panel of Night of Navy and the butterfly from a panel of Boho Blue cardstock. I am so happy the Designer Tags Dies are part of the Online Exclusive Products. These dies were in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, and I thought for sure they were going to retire. I adhered the sprig and butterfly to the sentiment panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems to the card front and Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the butterfly.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Leaf stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White. I used the beautiful flower die from the Designer Tags Dies and cut the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat then to the inside of the Boho Blue card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Countryside Inn DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately, packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials.  Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.

Please remember to use my current Host Code and make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me, and you’ll get my rewards! 

Happy Stamping, Karen


In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.
