Tropical Chic

It’s feeling kind of steamy here in North Georgia which got me thinking about the Tropical Chic stamp set – check out these cards made with the set.

How about some origami to start? This card was created with a few folds to create a kind of 3d tropical print shirt.

So clever – You can click HERE to see how it is made.

This next one uses the Tropical Dies (146831) as a focal point done in shades of Blushing Bride and Basic Gray it is a classic color combination.

And this next card uses the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder (151775) to create a wonderful back ground. Simply ink up the inside of the folder and run through your machine.

Voila – it has a very textile feel to it. And don’t you love the shades of Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce.

And now how about a fancy fold –

it’s called a double z fold and is so simple but packs a wow

And this last little item is a 3d treat holder for a piece of chocolate – cute right.

Like what you see? While some of these projects use some retired products, since I didn’t get a chance to share them with you earlier in April, but the good news is the set and dies are still available. So why not check the set out for your next tropical feeling project?

So Santa

I chose today’s stamp set, So Santa since I’m thinking about our family, friends, and neighbors to the north in the Carolina’s who are waiting for Florence. Praying they’ll be safe. Living close to the beach has got to be wonderful, but it sounds like Florence will pack a punch. (The day here in North Georgia has been over cast and it’s been raining off and on so we can feel Florence getting closer even this far away.)

So Santa (147824/147821)  is a fun set with quirky little images and sentiments for the holidays and you’ll find it on page 23 in the Holiday Catalog. These two cards happen to use the beach themed image. This first card teams the set up with the Tropical Chic stamp set (146750/146753).

.

And how about this card? I love the look of the surf board. I wish you could see it. I’m not sure my photo does it justice – colored with Stampin’ Blends, a quick swish of Wink of Stella and then a bit of VersaMark Ink Pad and Clear Embossing Powder.

The sand dollars and net were created with the Under the Sea Framelits Dies (146334). Too cute!

Well that is it for today since I’m a bit late posting – I’m sure my son will be looking for food soon, and since I’ve been playing in the classroom this afternoon making little treats for my Holiday Catalog Kick Off this Saturday I don’t have anything planned. LOL, so I better get going before he starts digging through the pantry!
