Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Thank You Card

My kids this weekend decided to each come up with a set of colors for me to use in a card.
Ironically enough, they each picked colors that I wouldn’t normally put together, so it really was a challenge.

My (almost) 13-year-old daughter picked Grapefruit Grove and Coastal Cabana.

Just a reminder also that I have FREE SHIPPING going on right now when you order through my store!!! (more details at the end of the post)

As much as I love Coastal Cabana, I rarely use Grapefruit Grove, but I thought they looked really tropical together, so I used the Tropical Chic Stamp.

I started off with Thick Whisper White cardstock which I cut at 4″ x 8″ and scored at 4″.  I then took a panel of Coastal Cabana cardstock and embossed it using the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

Next I cut out a Grapefruit Grove stitched circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic Stamp Set in Versamark ink on it, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I then stamped the leaf in Coastal Cabana ink and the flower in Grapefruit Grove ink and cut them out using the Tropical Dies.  I used the same dies to cut out two leaves from Coastal Cabana cardstock.

Under the flower I wound a piece of Grapefruit Grove ribbon and then added a few pearls around the circle.


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Now through July 11th, receive FREE SHIPPING on any order $50+.

Just place your order online using my current host code (see below).  Make note of the cost of shipping.  Then e-mail me what items you’d like for that amount and I’ll order them up for you – no cost.

For example, if the cost for shipping on your order is $6.50, then e-mail me what item(s) you’d like that total $6.50.

Because your order is over $50, you’ll also receive:

  • a free $8.50 item
  • two checks on my Star Rewards Program
  • $5 Bonus Days coupon to spend in August (see below)

That’s savings on top of savings on top of savings!  Don’t miss out!

From July 1 until August 31, new demonstrators will receive an additional $30 to put toward bonus products in their Starter Kit. THEN, they’ll receive a $10 coupon code the following month.

Pay $99 for your starter kit and pick out $155 worth of product!!!  Then in August receive ANOTHER $10 coupon for more free product.

Even better yet, your Starter Kit will ship for free – that’s even more savings!!

There’s never any pressure to sell or have parties.  We just have a lot of fun!  And this means you’ll get your discount right in time for the Holiday Catalog.  Not only see it early, but preorder from it early with your 20% discount.

Starting July 1st through the 31st, earn a $5 coupon code with every increment of $50 order.  For example, an order of $50 = one $5 coupon, an order of $100 = two $5 coupons, etc.  There is no limit to how many coupons you can earn.

Then come August, it’s time to redeem the coupons!

  • An email address is required to participate; Bonus Days coupon codes can be delivered only via email.
  • If a participant earns multiple codes from a single order, they will receive one email with multiple codes. If they earn multiple codes from multiple orders, they will receive separate emails for each code earned.
  • Orders that are started before the promotion begins will not go toward earning coupon codes.
  • There is no limit to the number of coupon codes participants can earn per order or throughout the duration of the Bonus Days earning period.

The Daisy Lane Stamp Set and Medium Daisy Punch are a great addition to your collection.  They coordinate perfectly with the returning Daisy Delight Stamp Set and Daisy Punch and offer so many possibilities.

If you purchase the Daisy Lane Stamp Set between now and July 20th through my store, I will e-mail you four free video tutorials using the Daisy Lane Stamp Set.  These will include tutorials to make three cards and one gift item.

If you purchase the Daisy Lane Bundle, I will mail you the product needed to make one of each of the four projects.  Please note that per Stampin’ Up! policy I can’t mail any stamped items.  The necessary cardstock will be included, but you will need to stamp these images.

Use this host code when your order is $50 or more (before shipping and taxes) and receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $8.50 in any current catalog.

  1. I wouldn’t have put those 2 colors together either but your card with them is super cute! Great take on the sketch too. Kudos to your daughter–tell her she did a good job!

  2. These colors were made for each other! Your daughter has quite an eye for color! I love the tropical vibes of your card. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
