Stampin’ Up! Paneled Timeless Tropical Oasis for a Friend

Happy happy Hawwwmp Day!  Hope your week is going well! 🙂

I’ve got a sweet not-so-little card for you today.  It’s built on a Magnolia Lane Memories & More Large Specialty Card, with the matching envelope, so…it’s a substantial card!  And I used the Tropical Oasis goodies – including the Memories & More Card Pack – plus the Timeless Tropical stamp set with the bundled In The Tropics Dies.  Take a look-see:


The layout is inspired by the sketch challenge over at the Global Design Project this week.

I started with a piece of So Saffron card stock as a mat for my card front.  The card front itself is a large panel from the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack.  I cut the panel into 1″ wide strips and matted each of the strips on Pear Pizzazz.

Then I adhered the strips to the So Saffron panel with Liquid Glue.

I created a pineapple by cutting the “top” from Pear Pizzazz and the detailed bottom from So Saffron.  With Sponge Daubers, I brushed Pear Pizzazz ink over the top and So Saffron ink over the bottom to give them some dimension.  I adhered the So Saffron die cut to a piece of Pear Pizzazz (that I’d sponged with Pear Pizzazz ink) with Liquid Glue then cut around the pineapple to trim the excess and create a “back” for the pineapple.

Then I adhered the top and bottom to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the small Timeless Tropical flowers a few times on Very Vanilla – once in Grapefruit Grove, once in Terracotta Tile and a third time in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile.  I used my Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend to color the petals.

I cut a couple of leaves from Pear Pizzazz.

Then I made the sentiment, stamping the phrase from Timeless Tropical in Grapefruit Grove on a Very Vanilla stip that I bannerized with my Paper Snips.

The final element is a short piece of 3/8″ Braided Linen Trim that I pulled apart at both ends.

Then it was time to build the collage!

I laid out all the pieces – and took the picture.

Then I started taking off a couple of layers and…took another picture.

I pulled all of the pieces off and started adhering them back down – in order – with Liquid Glue.

The final flower is added with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I brushed that one with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

I used Glue Dots to tuck a couple of leaves from the Tropical Oasis Trinkets in amongst the flowers and die cut leaves.

I added a few Champagne Rhinestones to the flowers and card front – and it was done!

On the inside, I stamped the flower again in Terracotta Tile on a Very Vanilla panel.  Using a sticky note mask, I stamped around the flower – two small pineapples in Pear Pizzazz and two leaves in Old Olive.  I picked up the mask and used my Light Petal Pink Blend to color the flower, Light So Saffron Blend for the pineapples and Light Old Olive Blend for the leaves.  Then I tucked a few Champagne Rhinestones around and added one to the middle of the flower.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to my So Saffron mat and into the Magnolia Lane card, added the card front with Liquid Glue, and the card was done.

My Magnolia Lane Memories & More Large Specialty Envelope got the stamped images on the front (I didn’t color them in)…

…and I used the envelope liner that comes with the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Large Specialty Cards & Envelopes as a template and created my own liner.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere it inside the envelope.

Et Voila!  I love this Tropical Oasis Suite SO much – and it is AWESOME on the Magnolia Lane card!!  The Tropical Oasis DSP is one of the most stunning papers I’ve seen.  And the beautiful images, sentiments and cutting/embossing dies in the Timeless Tropical Bundle are wonderful and work perfectly to create a scene straight out of the Hawaiian Islands!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

My friend Jan and I, along with Finn’s….birth mother, Linda…have been on an ongoing group chat on our phones….pretty much since the day that Finn came home with us three-plus years ago.

Yesterday afternoon, Jan sent us a picture of Scout (Finn’s sister) sitting out on the lawn, sniffing the world.  Watching for….anything.

Linda responded with what Finn’s dog-mom… Bonnie….was doing at the time.

And so – I chimed in with….

Kind of all in the family.  All lazing away a Tuesday afternoon in their own “unique” way.   Genetics?  The common thread of The Force?

Who knows.  I DO know that I am grateful on a daily basis that Bonnie is a sleeper.  And that she passed that to my Finny-win.  Cuz…a dog that wants to sleep is a blessing indeed!  😉

  1. Beautiful card! Love the layering and the colors are perfect! There does seem to be a little family resemblance in the photos. 😉

  2. Gotta love the furry kids!
    Stunning card. I love your attention to detail…from the front to the total envelope. Simply beautiful. One question. How did you determine the width of the panels? I know how I would do it, but wonder if you have a simpler way.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks, Julie! I started by cutting the Memories & More panel down to 4″ long and then cutting it into four panels like the sketch – all at 1″ (it just made sense in my head). And I didn’t like it. So I ended up doing a second one with the entire panel dividing it into 1 1/8″ pieces. Not a very elegant way, but…it worked!

  3. Stella Boatman

    Your tropical card is beautiful. It would be worth paying the extra price for postage. A very special person would get that card. I also love the frayed burlap trim

    • stampsnlingers

      Oh, thank you, Stella – that’s very sweet! I love the suite of products! 🙂

  4. This is a spectacular card! I love the panels and the way you used the ribbon. I looked at the pups just before I went into the operating room and they made me smile…as did you.

    • stampsnlingers

      So glad that I could give you a smile – and so glad that your surgery went well!! Thanks, Karen! 🙂
