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!!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Chic Thank You Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  Well it’s back to work for me today.  After getting home early Tuesday morning (2am), and spending the day unpacking, doing laundry and running for groceries, it’s time to get back into the normal routine and relax.  Vacations are great, but I love my daily routine days.

For today’s card I made you a really quick one featuring the beautiful Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.  I think this paper is absolutely gorgeous.  Really makes me want to go to Hawaii.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a So Saffron card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink over the sentiment stamping off once.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered a piece of the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon across the center of the card front using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the hibiscus image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I cut the image out using the Tropical Dies.  I adhered the hibiscus to the end of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I added a couple Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the left side of the panel once in full strength and twice stamped off.  I adhered another hibiscus flower that I had stamped from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Lovely Lipstick and cut out using the Tropical Dies using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the side and bottom of the envelope front, some stamped full strength and some stamped off.  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 Tropical Oasis Pocketful of Happiness for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the first Fun Fold Friday of 2020.  Well, today is the day everyone has been waiting for, the New January-June 2020 Mini Catalog is live.  I hope you all have your shopping lists ready, I know I do.  I can’t wait to get my hands on some of the new items.  Don’t forget for every $50 order you get to pick a free item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog too.  I just love this time of year.  Who doesn’t like FREE!!  Along with the free Sale-A-Bration item you get to pick one free item from me worth up to $10 from any current catalog and you receive one Sand Dollar Reward.

For today I have a really quick fun fold for you.  I used a little new and a little old.  Here’s my card.

I started by folding my Soft Seafoam card base at 4 1/4″ and I folded the 1″ side back.  I adhered a thin strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock to the back of the 1″ edge using Snail.  I adhered the 1″ folded piece down using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered one of the 1″ strips of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper just a smidge over from left folded edge of the card front using Snail.  I absolutely love this DSP.  This piece especially reminds me of my Tiger Lily Garden that blooms beautifully in the summer.

I adhered the other 1″ strip of Tropical Oasis DSP to the right edge of the inside of the card base using Snail.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink to the right of the panel.  I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Pocketful of Happiness Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the left of the sentiment twice, stamping them both off the paper.  I colored the flowers in using my Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the sentiment to the right folded edge using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that it hung over the edge.  I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the flower using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the left edge of the sentiment using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dots to the flowers and card front.

On the inside I stamped the smaller flower image from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top and bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my So Saffron and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small flower image from the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set on the envelope front twice.  I colored the images in using my So Saffron and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Tropical Oasis DSP to the envelope flap.
