Timeless Tropical - Stampin' Up! - Retirement Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the card that I shared during my Facebook Live on Wednesday night.  I used the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set to create a easy layered card for someone that is retiring.  I personally think the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set is perfect for any occasion but that's just me.  Here's a look at the card that I did.  

I love that you can do this card with all the layering and it just looks fabulous but is so super easy.  I love cards like this when they look complicated but are easy as pie.  Another thing that I love is that you can do the same design but by changing up the colors and images you get a completely different look to the card.  Someone suggested during my Facebook live that pink would be pretty.  And, it so would.  


When I first designed this card I created the one you see above using the large floral image from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set.  I paired the large flower with Early Espresso a color that is used in a lot of masculine themed cards.  I personally think it's a wonderful color for anytime.  I love it's rich bold tone and earthy rawness.   Which is why I also think it plays nicely with the large hibiscus.  So for the card that I did during the live I wanted to change things up just a little so I decided to change up the stamped image and the color. 

So I decided to use pool Party and the large leaf image from the stamp set to change things up a little and to share how versatile the stamp set really is.  I can not decided which card I like the best; which is your favorite?  I really love the mix fonts in this stamp set.  If you want me to by a stamp set have flowers and mix fonts in it and it's as good as sold.  


I was not worried about the images not lining up all the way.  I wasn't actually going for that but some of them did and that's okay too.  But, I didn't do the style stamping where I wanted the stamped images on each layer to look as if they were all lined up perfectly.  I was fine with them being off just a tad.  Most probably didn't even notice that until I pointed it out.

Remember that the Timeless Tropical bundle is on the retiring list even through the stamp set and the dies are carrying over the bundle price will not be available.   So, if you would like to save that additional 10% off the bundle I would go ahead and get it.  I have created a PDF Tutorial for you to download with all the supplies, instructions, and measurements for you for this card.  And I even did the measurements for my A4 metric friends as well.  You can download the Free PDF by Clicking here.
