Thank You |Best Wishes| In The Tropics

The In the Tropics stamp set reminds me of sun and relaxation. Blooms that should be stamped with very bright colors.  Our Be Amazing color collection was perfect for this!

I used the Journey Rectangles the Fancy Label Dies to cut out a piece of Whip Cream  card stock. [Be sure to save the Fancy Label piece that you cut out, you will need that later.]

The tropical blooms were randomly stamped in the following ink:  Cosmic Grape, Turbo Teal, Outrageous Pink, Orange Rave and Limeade Splash.

Thank You In the Tropics

This panel was popped up onto an Electric Lime card base using Foam Squares.

On the insert piece, I stamped the Best Wishes sentiment that comes from the Everyday Script [this set also comes as a bundle with coordinating dies] in Black Licorice Ink. It was adhered using Craft Glue and inset onto the card base.  I added Sparkle Silk to finish off the card.Thank You In the Tropics2

Here is a video for you!

I love that there is really no paper waste on this card because you are reusing the insert.

May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Thank You | Cottage Bouquet | Many Thanks

While I was at the Fun Stampers Journey Convention last month, I fell in love with the new techniques that we learned.  Here is one of them.

Dauber the following colors in a loose circle using the Large Dauber Dowel (TO-0138) for all seven flowers on a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) cardstock:  Rich Coral (IP-0052), Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027), Citrus Cooler (IP-0048), Beach Breeze (IP-0044), Lemon Grass (IP-0022), Lemon Drop Liquid Color (IP-0132), and Cool Pool Liquid Color (IP-0140).

Thank You Cottage Bouquet

Stamp seven flowers one on each color using Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) and the Cottage Bouquet Stamp Set (SS-0606).  You can fussy cut them out or cut them out using the coordinating dies (DI-0475).  [yes, this set does come in a bundle to save you some money – Cottage Bouquet Bundle – BD-0402].

Thank You Cottage Bouquet4

Stamp the large Thank You sentiment from the Many Thanks (AT-0280) in Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) onto a piece of Whip Cream cardstock (CS-0040).  Fussy cut around the sentiment.  On another piece of Whip Cream cardstock you will stamp the inside greeting in Black Licorice ink.

Fold the Oatmeal Cookie (CS-0023) card base in half.  Take a small paper plate [like a dessert plate] and trace the front of the card base approximately 1″ from the right edge.  Trim away the excess cardstock to create a curve card front.

Affix a Whip Cream piece of cardstock on the inside of your card.  Using Foam Squares (AD-0085) pop up all seven flowers along the curved edge of the card front.

Using Foam Squares (AD-0084 & AD-0085), pop up the Thank you Sentiment.

Flick entire card front with Black Licorice Silk (IP-0143).

Affix Journey Sequins Special Celebration (AC-0115) to the front of the card using Journey Glaze (AD-0002).

Thank You Cottage Bouquet3

Apply Journey Glaze (AD-0002) to the center of the flowers and then sprinkle on Journey Sparkle Cuts (AC-0151). 

I love the look of this card.

May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
