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.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then measured a top and bottom piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock which I embossed using the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

In the space I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic Stamp Set in Coastal Cabana ink and added a few Granny Apple Green Enamel Dots.

I used the Tropical Chic Bundle to first cut out a Daffodil Delight leaf.  For another leaf I stamped the image in Versamark ink on Daffodil Delight cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  For the bigger leaf, I used the Stamparatus.  I first inked it up in Granny Apple Green ink and then dabbed the edges of it in Coastal Cabana ink.

I wound around some Silver Thread over the leaves.  I also folded over some Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green ribbon which I secured using Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  I added a Coastal Cabana enamel dot over the fold.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Monochromatic Easy Card

Maybe it’s because St. Patrick’s Day just passed or maybe it’s because I’m ready to see some green on the trees and grass…

But today’s card is a monochromatic green card using the Tropical Chic and Incredible Like You stamp sets.

My card starts off with Call Me Clover Cardstock.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped all around it the images from the Tropical Chic Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce, Call Me Clover, and Granny Apple Green ink.  I then matted this on Granny Apple Green cardstock.

Next I wrapped around a knot using the Granny Apple Green Textured ribbon.  This is one of my favorite ribbons to work with as it is very easy to make a beautiful bow or knot.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Incredible Like You Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday sketch challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic – FMS378

For today’s card I’m using a set I haven’t picked up in a while.  It’s the Tropical Chic Bundle.

The bundle mixed with the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper is so tropical and makes me dream of hot days on the beach with a fun drink.

My card starts off with Blushing Bride cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Shaded Spruce cardstock.

I then adhered a pattern from the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper to the card front.

I used the Tropical Thinlits Dies to cut out three leaves from Soft Sea Foam, Granny Apple Green, and Shaded Spruce cardstock. I cut Mini Dimensionals in half in order to adhere down the middle one.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

My card today starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock.  I then took another panel, embossed it using the Simply Stripes embossing folder, and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic New Home Card

You might see today’s card and think – tropical theme and a new home card?!

They don’t go together.

And you’d probably be right, but this card was designed with someone very special in mind.  My aunt is moving from the New England area to Florida, and they’re looking forward to the warm, ocean-y, palm tree atmosphere that this brings.

My card starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I then adhered over it a pattern from the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.  I loved how Karren, from the Global Design Project’s design team, did her sentiment along the side and thought I would follow her lead.  I stamped the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I then stamped the leaves from the Tropical Chi stamp set in Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut them out using the coordinating Tropical Thinlits.

I tied a Granny Apple Green ribbon to go over the leaves and added a few Granny Apple Green Glittery Enamel Shapes.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Thank You Card

When in doubt, take inspiration from the catalog itself!

Today’s card was inspired by a card on page 120 of the Annual Catalog.  I especially loved the dotted paper behind the leaves.

My card starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I then too a pattern from the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.

I then cut out the “box of leaves” using the Tropical Thinlits Dies and adhered it over another pattern from the Tropical Escape DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce Ink on Whisper White cardstock.

I then used the Tropical Chic Bundle (stamp set and matching thinlits) to stamp and/or cut out leaves using Shaded Spruce ink and cardstock and Blushing Bride ink.  I added a Tropical Element embellishment and I tied a Linen Thread bow through it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Granny Apple Green cardstock.  Next I mounted some Whisper White cardstock on a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I then cut a pattern from the Tropical Escape DSP on an angle to adhere to the card.

I used the new Tropical Chic Bundle (stamp set & matching framelits saves you 10%) for the cluster of tropical leaves.  I used Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green, and Blushing Bride ink and cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Chic Stamp Set in Blushing Bride ink and tied a bow through one of the Tropical Elements to adhere to the corner of it.

Enjoy!
