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.

Kylie's Monthly Training Team Blog Hop: Layered With Kindness Friendship Card

Welcome back to my blog:  This is my second post for today, and I am back for Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop.  You will be able to see projects from all over during the hop.  So, I know that you will have a wonderful time.  For my project for the hop I created a super cute card that uses the Layered with Kindness Stamp Set and the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper that I shared earlier today with you.  Here's a look at the Friendship card I made.

Layered With Kindness:  

Create quick tags and greeting cards with graceful greetings from the Layered with Kindness Stamp Set. Stamp flowers and leaves for a finishing touch.  This is a Distinktive** stamp set; it has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images. **Patent pending  For the front of my card I used the  For My Friend sentiment stamped in Petal Pink ink.  I then punched it out with the Label Me Fancy Punch.  I then cut down my Petal Pink card base 4 1/4 x 11 and folded it in half to make my A2 size card base.  I cut down a piece of the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper (that's part of the Coordinating Product Release that's only available.  while supplies last or until March 31, 2020).  I matted the Designer Series paper onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock before adding it to my card base.  
Dress up your paper crafts with the flowers, hearts, raindrops, and other patterns from the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper. Great card making paper, scrapbooking paper, and more.  I used more of the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper to punch out the small flowers you see above.  Images on one side of each sheet of the designer series paper matches one of the punches either from Saleabration or from the January - June Mini Catalog.  The small flowers match the Small Blossom punch from Saleabration.  One design matches the Heart Punch Pack, another matches the Umbrella Builder Punch, while the last coordinates with the Tulip Punch.  You can see that with all this coordination this pack a paper really packs a punch.  
To finish off my card I added a few of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones to each of the flowers.  If you are viewing this post on my wordpress site you will have to click here to view the blog roll.
