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)

Timeless Pineapple

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!
