Our Friendship is Timeless - Timeless Tropical Friendship Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a very tropical themed card using products from the Tropical Oasis Suite in the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.  Add a pop of paradise to your crafting with lush foliage and tropical images. The Tropical Oasis Suite Bundle features retro tropical images and glorious colors to make a statement on your projects. It’s just another day in papercrafting paradise when you use the stamps and dies to create your own dreamy designs. Invoke a touch of the tropics with bronze-finish trinkets including a pineapple, hibiscus, ukulele, and palm leaves. When you’re all done, hold the project to your ear and listen for the waves gently crashing onto the shoreline.  Here's a look at my card using products from this suite.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out by stamping the flowers from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink on whisper white cardstock.  Once stamped I started coloring the flowers with my Stampin' Blends.  I used Daffodil Delight, Pineapple Punch, and Mango Melody to color the petals.  I used the Mango blends to color in the dark areas indicated by the designer on the stamp, blending it out with the Daffodil Delight Blends, and then blending everything with the Pineapple Punch Blends.  I then stamped and die cut all the different leaves in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow cardstocks.

I also used the Soft Suede Blends to color in the center of the flower.  I ran the Soft Suede and Old Olive pieces of cardstock through the embossing machine with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I put the embossed Soft Suede piece onto my Old Olive Card base and then matted a piece of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper with Early Espresso.  Then I started the layering process.  I started out my adding the matted DSP onto the card base.  Next I added the embossed piece of Old Olive.  I then added a piece of the Braided Burlap Trim.  I then added the flowers with dimensionals.

Once the flowers were in place I could tuck the leaves behind and add them with a little liquid glue.  I then stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and added it to the front of the card. Next I added a bow I made with some of the thread from the braided trim.  To finish the card off I decided to add a couple of the leaf trinkets from the Annual Catalog.
