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 Wrapped In Plaid Swirly Frames Sneak Peek Christmas Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  Hope your week has started off well.

I have a sneak peek for you today from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  If you are a customer of mine you have seen this set in the catalog on page 13.  This is a pretty quick and easy card to make.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the large and small circles from the Stampin’ Up Swirly Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Shaded Spruce card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the card front to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I punched 3 trees out from the new gorgeous Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper (available Sept 4th) using the Pine Tree Punch (available Sept 4th).  I adhered 2 of the trees using Glue Dots and the center tree using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the sentiment out from Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the  Word Wishes Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Perfect Plaid Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4th) in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the plaid tree image from the Perfect Plaid stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the plaid tree from the Perfect Plaid stamp set in Shaded Spruce twice and Cherry Cobbler once on the bottom of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Wrapped In Plaid DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  The Perfect Plaid Stamp Set, the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper and the Pine Tree Punch will be available for purchase on September 4th.

Happy Stamping!!
