Good Friday, y’all!! Hope you’re ready for a weekend and for Christmas! And – mostly – I hope that today is your last day of work before your holiday break!
I’ve got a quick and easy card for you today – which seems like a great idea at this busy time of the year, yes? This one lets the gorgeous Tropical Oasis DSP do the lion’s share of the work. With some sentiments and flower images from the Timeless Tropical stamp set. You’ll be able to get the whole suite on 3 Jan. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
I started with a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock – almost as big as the front of my card – and I embossed it in the new Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder. Then I adhered it to the front of my Pear Pizzazz card base with Liquid Glue.
Next up – I took two gorgeous pieces of paper from the new Tropical Oasis DSP and matted them both on Grapefruit Grove card stock.
I adhered the bottom panel with Liquid Glue and popped the top panel on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the sentiment, I stamped the Timeless Tropical sentiment in Terracotta Tile on a Whisper White strip – that I snipped the ends of with my Paper Snips.
I tied a bow with a length of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.
I made a “mat” with a strip of Grapefruit Grove and used a Glue Dot and a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it over the bow. Then I adhered the sentiment over top with a little Liquid Glue.
I decided it needed a little sumpin sumpin – so I tucked a couple of leaves from the Tropical Oasis Trinkets under the strips with Glue Dots. And – that was it for the card front!
On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Timeless Tropical in Terracotta Tile on a Whisper White panel. Across the bottom I added leaves from the stamp set in Pear Pizzazz. I inked the stamp and stamped it off twice on scrap paper – then I stamped the panel several times without re-inking.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and into the Pear Pizzazz card base – and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Pear Pizzazz Timeless Tropical leaves on the front…
…and more of the Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Love love love the Tropical Oasis suite with the beautiful DSP and the Timeless Tropical stamp set with the bundled In the Tropics Die set. And how cool is the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder!? I hope you like!

Finny and I went to the Post Office yesterday – to drop off customer ordering gifts. In the outside box – no way was I going IN five days before Christmas
Also? I had a spot on my shirt, so…was deep in hiding!
On the way home, we swung thru the drive-thru at the bank.
Finn had some High Finance to take care of, you know?
Keeping a CLOSE eye…
…on the drawer…
Come on…come on….Does she SEE me??
Candy canes for the ponies and….a BONE for the CFO in the back seat of the limo!
Chomp chomp nom nom….gone in a flash!
He loves going to the bank!!
