I love pineapple!!! And when I was pregnant, I would eat a whole one a week! My poor child is just now liking the taste of it! LOL! The Tropical Oasis suite has been a favorite of mine! I have made at least 5 cards using all the goodies! This was one of the first ones I made! I was curious about the dies that cut out the prickly outer layer of the pineapple along with the leaves on top! I decided that Copper Foil was a close match to an actual pineapple outside layer. Once I cut it out, I just kept on going making this card! It was a quick design! I love it when the creative mojo just flows!
I then cut out a small piece of So Saffron cardstock to adhere behind the prickly die shape. Then, I used Mossy Meadow cardstock to cut out the leaves for the top of the pineapple. Next I wanted to create a frame, so I whipped out my Stitched Rectangle dies and measured them against the card base. The Tropical Oasis has a gorgeous rattan looking piece that was perfect for the framed image!
I ran the card base through the die cutting machine with the Subtle 3-D folder to make the Mint Macaron have texture. The sentiment was stamped with Early Espresso, anchored with Champagne Basic Jewels (those need to be a regular item!!!!), and I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut it out. I finished off the card with some frayed Linen Thread topped with the Hibiscus flower from the Tropical Oasis Trinkets.
I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did making it!

I love everything that has the Eiffel Tower on it! It’s just so majestic and such a beautiful focal point! I have already made 2 cards with the Parisian Blossoms suite and I have several more ready to go! (once I can sit still-ha!)
This card was for my monthly stampers club! We started by stamping the script words with Crumb Cake on to Crumb cake paper. (we did stamp off the full strength first on to our grid paper). Next, we used the Parisian Flourish 3-D folder (151474, page 15 in the Mini Catalog) to create the gorgeous background! To make it have a more vintage feel, we used a sponge to rub across the raised areas.
Next we added some 3/8″ Scalloped Lace trim to create some softness to our vintage card. We then ran some Basic Gray for the Eiffel Tower, Blushing Bride for the blossom, and some Silver Foil for the word through the die cutting machine. A pearl was the final touch! What do you think?

One of the projects for our monthly stamp club focuses on a technique. October I made this card with the Faux Metal Technique. I love how it turned out! The Come to Gather Suite is just gorgeous! I have made so many cards, décor items, and loose leaves with this bundle!
To create this card, I stamped the grain image with Pretty Peacock on a Pretty Peacock card base. Then I adhered the Come to Gather DSP after cutting the banner on one end. Next, I cut leaves using Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, and Terracotta Tile cardstock.
Now for the fun part! To make the faux metal, I punched a Very Vanilla Thick circle. Then I swiped Versamark ontop of the whole circle, sprinkled it with Silver Emossing Folder, and then heat set it. I reapeated the process 2 more times. But the last time I heat set the embossing powder, I had the stamp ready! While it is still hot, I pressed the stamp down firmly and pushed. I held it there for a few seconds and then pulled it up! The nice thing is if you don’t like the way it looks you can melt another layer and the messed up one will melt with it!
I accented the leaves with Wink of Stella clear and a small piece of the Come Together ribbon. I didn’t want my sentiment to take over, so I found a small one and used the Classic Label punch to cut it out.
I haven fallen in LOVE with the new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint! I have used it for snowballs, these cute cotton balls, and even popcorn! It is a true treat watching it puff up from the heat gun!
TIP: Use a liberal amount on your image; then gradually get closer to the wet puff paint. If you are too close at first, it will move around. Starting further away lets it set some as you move closer in. But, not too close, I have had mine yellow from getting too hot too! You can go back over it if needed to make it puffier. I didn’t put enough on the first project and I went back and added more. Worked like a charm!
To make this card, I stamped the milk can onto the Mercury Glass Acetate sheet with StazOn and fussy cut it out. I then stamped the foliage and the sentiment onto my Crumb Cake piece of card stock Next, I colored the images with the Stampin’ Blends and Wink of Stella Clear. I distressed the edges of the paper with the edge of my scissors and then followed that with a Early Espresso sponge. The base of the card was stamped with the Birch Background and Crumb Cake ink. I wanted it to be subtle so I stamped off onto my grid paper first, then the Whisper White Thick.
I finished the card off withsome Copper Trim. I am so ready for fall!
