Soft Tropical Flowers

It is Spring Break here in Texas! And it is raining today….sigh. But that is okay!!!! This card shows the fun beach and summer fun that is unfolding! Fun in the sun is so close and I can’t wait to see all the beautiful colors that are starting to poke out!

I have really enjoyed using the Timeless Tropical bundle for my creations! To create the soft and subtle look to the flowers, I used the Rock n Roll technique. It is a great technique for beginners and is still a favorite among the advanced stamper! For the large hibiscus flower, I first stamped with So Saffron and then lightly rolled just the edges with Calypso Coral. The smaller flowers is stamped first in Mango Medley and the edges are rolled with Pumpkin Pie.

To create a ratan feeling to the background, I ran a piece of Crumb Cake through the die cutting machine with the Coastal Weave 3-D embossing folder. Then, I used a sponge with Crumb Cake ink to create more texture and depth to the embossed surface. Next, I popped up a pattern of birds of paradise from the Tropical Oasis DSP using dimensionals. (this is a gorgeous pack of double sided paper that can be used for all paper projects and scrapbook pages!!) The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Mango Medley after I created a banner on the edge.

The Champagne Basic Jewels and Wink of Stella clear finish this creation with some sparkle! (to create the champagne color you can also use the Mango Medley Blends on your Basic Jewels)
