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! By The Dock for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? Hope you are all staying heathly and safe. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.

My design is from Global Design Projects Sketch Challenge #234.  Here is their sketch.

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

On a Whisper White cardstock panel I stamped the shoreline and bird images from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the boat and oars images from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the frog image from the By The Dock stamp set in Old Olive Ink and colored it in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using the Dockside Dies.  From a small panel of Old Olive cardstock I cut the shoreline from the Dockside Dies out.  I cut the die cut in half using my Paper Snips.  I cut a banner using my Banner Triple Punch from a small panel of Real Red cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the banner.  I embossed the banner using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the boat, oars and frog to the stitched circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the shoreline die behind the artwork using Glue Dots.  I stamped a couple more of the birds from the By The Dock stamp set on the card front in Soft Suede Ink.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the boat image from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set 3 times above the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the boat and frog images from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive, Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, 3 times in the center of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Tea Together for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using this weeks sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to an Early Espresso mat using Snail.  I added a strip of Blushing Bride cardstock to the bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon around the Blushing Bride strip and tied a small bow.  I adhered the card front to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I embossed a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I swiped my Mint Macaron stamp pad across the panel to highlight the raised parts.  I adhered the embossed panel to an Early Espresso mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tea cup image from the Stampin’ Up! Tea Together Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the image out using my Tea Time Dies.  I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style  Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of the tea cup.  I colored the tea cup using my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers and the flower image in using my Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the tea cup to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink  I cut the image out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The sentiment fits perfectly with the smallest die.

I adhered the sentiment to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Pearl Basic Jewel in the center of the flower on the tea cup.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tea cup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the teacup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink inside the tea cup.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Oasis for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week? The weekend is here already, have you made any plans?  I’ll be at work all weekend, end of the month and 1st of the month.  The good news is I get to take Monday off, YAY!!

Today’s fun fold card is a pretty quick one.  My daughter has been asking me to make a card using the pineapple from the In The Tropics Dies. Here’s my card.

I started by cutting 2 of the pineapples out using the In The Tropics Dies from So Saffron cardstock.  One of them I poked all the little pieces out and sponged it using my Sponge Dauber and So Saffron Ink.  I focused on sponging only the pointy pieces of the pineapple.  I then adhered the cut out piece to the pineapple that I didn’t punch the little pieces out of using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut the pineapple top out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the In The Tropics Dies.  I sponged the edges and points of the leaves using Pear Pizzazz Ink and my Sponge Dauber.  I adhered the pineapple top to the pineapple base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut the largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies out of a panel of Soft Suede cardstock.  I embossed it using my Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the pineapple to the embossed oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the card base I started with an 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ piece of So Saffron scored and folded at 4 1/4″.  I then cut the front of the card base at 2 3/4″ to the center fold and then up to the top along the center fold.  I adhered a panel of So Saffron to the front piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to the card front using Snail.

I adhered a strip of the 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the matted pineapple to the card front over the trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock I stamped the small flower from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the image out using my In The Tropics Dies and adhered it to the left of the pineapple using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a leaf from the Tropical Oasis Trinkets using a Glue Dot, tucked just under the flower.  I added a Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot to the center of the flower.  On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and made it into a banner using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the pineapple using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small flower image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom corner of the panel.  I colored the flowers in using my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the bottom of a So Saffron panel using Snail.   I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to the top of the So Saffron panel using Snail.  I adhered the panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated  Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small flower image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the pineapple image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the flowers in using my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Birthday For The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.

I played along with Crazy 4 Challenges #522.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with The Flower Challenge #41.

I started by embossing a Petal Pink card front using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  

I adhered a strip of Whisper White cardstock along the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the 1/8″ Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon around the Whisper White panel and the card front and secured it in the back with Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 3 squares from a Whisper White panel using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped 3 of the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Lovely Lipstick panel.  I cut the images out using my In The Tropics Dies.  I cut 6 leaves out of a small piece of Mint Macaron cardstock using my In The Tropics Dies.  I adhered the flowers to the squares using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the leaves under the flowers using a Glue Dot.  I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the Whisper White panel and cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom right of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set 3 times in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I cut the images out using my In The Tropics Dies.  I cut 3 more leave out of the panel of Mint Macaron cardstock using my In The Tropics Dies.  I adhered the flowers to the bottom left  of the inside panel using Glue Dots.  I adhered the leaves under the flowers using a tiny dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set 3 times on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Aloha Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Hope you are all having a wonderful week.

I played with another one of the new bundles from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog for today’s card.  Take a look.

The colors for my card were inspired by Inspire. Create. Challenge #061.  Here are their colors.

I started by cutting an oval in an Early Espresso card front using the largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies.  I then embossed the panel using my Coastal Weave 3ED Embossing folder.

On a Whisper White panel I stamped the palm tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set using my Early Espresso and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Markers.  I stamped 2 more palm trees on a smaller panel of Whisper White cardstock using my Early Espresso and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the 2 additional palm trees out using my In The Tropics Dies.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the back of the embossed Early Espresso card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the palm trees to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Early Espresso Ink 3 times.  I colored the flowers in using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the flowers out using my In The Tropics Dies.  I adhered 2 of the flowers to the bottom of the oval using Glue Dots and the last one using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut the sentiment out of a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock using the In The Tropics Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the center of each flower.

On the inside I stamped 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 twice on the bottom of the panel using my Early Espresso and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Early Espresso 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 twice on the envelope front using my Early Espresso and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Markers.  I stamped the flower image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in Early Espresso Ink across the envelope flap.  I colored the flowers in using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Hope it’s going good so far.

I have a quick and easy masculine card for you today using some of the new Designer Series Paper from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of an Early Espresso card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to the card front using Snail.

I wrapped a piece of 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim around the bottom of the DSP on the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Tropical Oasis Trinket to the left of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Early Espresso mat using Snail.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set using Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the In The Tropic Dies.  I adhered the palm tree to the side of the sentiment 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 twice on the envelope front colored  with my Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  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!!
