It’s a Timeless Tropical kind of day

It’s hot and humid in North Georgia today which makes it the type of day you want to sit back and sit a cold drink in the shade. That is until the afternoon storms arrive. lol So today I thought I’d share some cards with a tropical vibe. Check out the set it is filled with wonderful images and uses a beautifully fluid font for the sentiments too.

The cards I’ll be sharing with you today were all created with the Timeless Tropical stamp set (151497) and their coordinating dies, In the Tropics (151495). This first one looks like a pretty picture. The frame was created with our Stitched Rectangle Dies (151820) and sponging was used to create the lovely sunset. A circle Mask was used it’s a simple technique – all you have to do is cut out of a circle from a sticky note, put in place and then sponge around it as desired. Striking right?

And how about this next card? It uses a simple torn edge technique to create texture and interest.

More texture was added with the Subtle (151775) and Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folders (150646) along with a bit of sponging too.

And finally, this last card today is a fun fold card

When you open it you’ll get a wonderful surprise. Once again the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder was used to create interest on the inside along with some sponging to highlight the pattern.

So what do you think? Feeling a tropical vibe too? Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more cards using this fun set that is great for all kinds of occasions and scrap booking too!

Seaside Notions

Summer started last weekend and while I should have been packing for the incentive trip this week, Covid has put the breaks on that, so I’m making the best of it here in Clarkesville instead. Our pool liner has been replaced and almost refilled now so I’m looking forward to some time in the sun with the family. That is after the dust cloud passes lol. It’s been a crazy year so far wouldn’t you say. But I know I can always relax by stamping and sending a little sunshine, and that’s what these cards do. They make me smile and think of a tropical vacation.

This first card created by my team member Wanda, uses a fun technique with saran wrap to create the inked area of the frame. Plastic wrap is wadded into a ball and then used like a sponge with the Seaside Spray, Mint Macaron, Balmy Blue and Pool Party Classic Inks. The Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing Folder (151590) adds a bit more texture to the frame created with the Stitched Rectangle Dies (151820).

The images are colored with our Soft Sea Foam (154902) and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends (154882) and the Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends (154878) were used to color the Rhinestones (144220) which is quick and easy to do. Striking right?

And how about this sweet little sand dollar? Done in Crumb Cake, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay.

The circles from the Stitched Shapes Dies (152323) were used to create the frame around the sand dollar and some sponging was added both above the sand dollar and on the NEW Old World Paper 3D embossing Folder (153200). One of our Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels (151193) was used to pull your eye to the sand dollar’s center. I’m so glad that these Rhinestones are in the Annual Catalog they add a special little pop to any card.

So which is your favorite? I have to say I’m partial to Sea horses they have always fascinated me with the way they move, but I just can’t decide. How about you?
