When I first saw the Timeless Tropical stamp set and the In the Tropics dies (they do come in a bundle) I focused on the pineapple. I loved it. I wanted it! This bundle has turned into a real treasure for me. It is really versatile. I did share a pineapple card here. I've made a card featuring the palm trees here. Today I share a card using that large flower. It has captured my heart. This was a card we made in my last class.
For this card start with a base of Flirty Flamingo that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Fold at 4 1/4. Stamp over this base with the large flower stamp. I used Lovely Lipstick ink. Using these two colors together was a stretch for me, but it is so pretty!
I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut out the rectangle from a piece of Whisper White. The saying is from the Special Celebrations stamp set from page 22 of the Annual Catalog. Stamp it in Lovely Lipstick. Add this layer with dimensionals.
Stamp the large flower in Lovely Lipstick. Color with a Light Flirty Flamingo Blend and cut out with the In the Tropics dies. Stamp 3 leaves in Old Olive ink. Color these in with a Light Granny Apple Green Blend and cut them out. Arrange the flower and leaves. I used glue and dimensionals, glue where they cover the banner and dimensionals where they hang over the banner.
Add some Lovely Lipstick dots from the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots. That's it!
For the inside of the card, the saying is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set. Stamp the flower first. To add the leaves, you need to make a mask. Stamp the flower on a sticky note making sure that part is on the sticky space. Cut this out with snips. Use this to cover the flower you stamped. Now stamp the leaves. The part you don't want goes on the sticky note. Just pull it off. Color in with Blends.
Thanks for stopping by today. I do appreciate you. Have a lovely day and I hope you have time to stamp. If you need any supplies, I would love to help you.
