Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical

Good morning Tuesday my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?

Yesterday I was telling you about cleaning my craft table off and finding lots of bits and pieces of cards that I started, but never did anything with.  Well today’s card uses some more of the pieces I found lying around, so I thought I’d put them together to make another card for you.  Here’s what I came up with.

I had the frame I had made using the Stampin’ Up! Swirly Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set which I stamped in Early Espresso Ink on a Soft Suede panel and cut out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I also had a beach scene which was created on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I had stamped the sand from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the water from the High Tide stamp set in Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana Inks.  I sponged the sky using my Stamping Sponge, in Pool Party Ink.  The birds from the Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the sky.  I adhered the beach scene to the back of the frame using Snail.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock 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.  I cut the image out using my In The Tropics Dies.

I adhered the palm trees to the artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, letting the palms hang over the frame a little.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a Thick Whisper White card base using Snail.  I adhered the framed artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the top of the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Classic Label Punch and adhered it to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a pineapple from the Tropical Oasis Trinkets to the artwork using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the bottom of the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White 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 bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Suede mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  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 envelope front.   I adhered a panel of the 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. Don’t forget to look around your craft table for card pieces that you started and never finished.  You’d be surprised what you can come up with from pieces just sitting around. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Sunshine Inspiring Iris

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. We’re halfway through the week already. Hope you are having a productive week.

I have another card from our card class last night that we made.  The ladies were busy making all the cards.  It was another fun night stamping with friends.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Fab Friday Challenge #184.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Global Design Project Challenge #230.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outlined flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink 3 times.  I stamped the stem fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on all 3 flower stems over the outlined image.  I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set 2 times with Rococo Rose Ink and once with Petal Pink Ink over the outlined image.  I cut the flowers out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Using the Layering Circle Dies, I cut the scallop circle that fit the stitched circle from a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.  I adhered the artwork to the scalloped mat using Snail and I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I punched the sentiment out using the Classic Label Punch.  I punched out another label  from Mint Macaron cardstock using the Classic Label Punch.  I cut the Mint Macaron label in half and adhered it to the sentiment label on each side using Snail  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small piece of Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edged Ribbon, which I tied into a knot, to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower fill images from the Inspiring Iris stamp set 3 times on the bottom of the panel, once in Petal Pink Ink and 2 times in Rococo Rose Ink.  I stamped the stem fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set 3 times in Mint Macaron Ink below the flower images.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower outline image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set 3 times on the card front using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the stem fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamps set over the outlined images in Mint Macaron Ink and stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set twice in Petal Pink Ink and once in Rococo Rose Ink over the outlined images.  I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty 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!!
