Stampin’ Up! Witty-Cisms Thoughtful Blooms with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge from Joanne this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I pulled out some more of the pretty Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – coming soon on 1 April (and available in a limited-time special bundle from me!) and then added a little Witty-Cisms and….Thoughtful Blooms flowers, punched with the Small Bloom Punch.  These are both free Sale-A-Bration goodies – available thru 31 Mar.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge!  These are my very favorite challenges!! Go across – down – diagonal….join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

And I used the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge for the layout – I just flipped it a bit!

I started with some flower-dy paper (oh – I went down the far right column on the challenge!) for my card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sweet little chinchilla from Witty-Cisms.  I used the Stamparatus and the Marker-to-Rubber technique to stamp JUST the chinchilla in Early Espresso.  I colored him with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack, then cut him out with the next-to-largest circle Stitched Shapes die.

I went back to the Stamparatus and used the Marker-To-Rubber technique again to color and stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow and Terracotta Tile.  Then I fussy cut each word and edged the resulting pieces with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut chinchilla to the Ornate Garden panel with a little hanging over the left edge – then I trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat.

I popped each fussy cut word on with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I used Old Olive to stamp some Thoughtful Blooms branches and leaves above the chinchilla.  Using the Leaf Punch, I cut a couple of Mint Macaron leaves and one in Old Olive.  These I attached to the card front with Liquid Glue.

To make the Thoughtful Blooms flowers, I used Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink to stamp a variety on Whisper White.  The outline images are Terracotta Tile and the fills are Petal Pink!  Then I punched them all with the Small Bloom Punch.

Note: both these items are available right now as FREE Sale-A-Bration goodies – the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set with a $50 purchase and the Small Bloom Punch with a $100 purchase!


I adhered two of the flowers with Liquid Glue and then popped the middle flower up with a Dimensional.  A Champagne Rhinestone in the middle of each flower and two on the art circle finished off the card front!

On the inside, I stamped Happy Birthday (from the Witty-cisms stamp set) in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White panel.  Around it, I stamped some dots from Thoughtful Blooms in Petal Pink.  In the corner, I added more flowers, branches and leaves from Thoughtful Blooms in Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Thoughtful Blooms florals on the front…

…and a little more Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Gotta love the punny little sentiments and cute images in the Witty-cisms stamp set (and the Stamparatus makes multiple-color-coloring easy peasy!!).  And I have to say that the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set AND that awesome Small Bloom Punch – are two of my very favorite things from the Sale-A-Bration offerings!  I assume you’ve got them both already – but if not…hurry and get them before Sale-A-Bration leaves us on 31 March!!  I hope you like!

I’d like to say we’re done mixing dirt.

I know we’re out of Vermiculite so…we’re done for a minute! 😉

Fortunately, Finn was supervising.

Welll…for a bit.

I mean – it was HOT for a fur-dog!

He tried to get on the golf cart to rest, but his mom had left her drink right in the WAY.

Not very comfortable….

Oopsie… what bottle?!?

Ahhh – THAT’s better!!

Silly mom.

Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Poppies for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw the color palette for the challenge this week, I thought of the Peaceful Poppies DSP right away.  And then, I saw a cool sketch challenge and…boom!  So Sentimental and the awesome bundled Stitched So Sweetly Dies came off the shelf.  Take a look-see:

Here’s our color challenge.

And this is the sketch that gave me the “boom!” moment.  It’s from the Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started with a design in the Peaceful Poppies DSP and matted it on Old Olive for the card front.

I wrapped some of the Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack (get the whole suite on 1 April 2020!!) twice around the card front – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the flowers from the Painted Poppies stamp set in stamped-off-twice Poppy Parade on a piece of Poppy Parade paper from the Peaceful Poppies DSP.

Again with the Stamparatus, I stamped the So Sentimental sentiment in Tuxedo Black – stamping the image multiuple times to get it good and dark.

Then I cut the image/sentiment with the next-to-largest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.  I also cut the same size from an Old Olive piece of the DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere both die cuts to the card front – keeping the sentiment panel straight and angling the “mat” die cut.

I pulled out the Peaceful Poppies Elements and chose a couple of vellum flowers and some vellum leaves.  Using Glue Dots (under the embossed portions of the velum) – I adhered the flowers.  Then I used little dabs of Liquid Glue to tuck the leaves in under the flowers.

I tied a double-loop simple bow from the Old Olive Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Finally, I added some Peaceful Poppies Sequins with little dabs of Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White, using the Stamparatus.  Over the top, in stamped-off-twice Poppy Parade – I added those pretty poppies again!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Blackberry Bliss card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Painted Poppies on the front…

…and some more of the Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love it when several sets and bundles can come together as well as the So Sentimental bundle, Painted Poppies and Peaceful Moments sets have done in this card.  The Peaceful Poppies DSP is the perfect tie-er-together-er, don’t you think?!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter Birthday Bunny for The Paper Players

I’ve got another fun challenge for you today from the Paper Players – so come on over and play!  We’re playing with a theme challenge, and it’s a fun one – although it includes “clean and simple”  – which….isn’t exactly my comfort zone.  But – I gave it a go – and I hope you will, too! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I used a new-to-me stamp set called Welcome Easter to make a totally not-Easter card!  With it, I paired the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Happy Birthday to You (available for FREE right now with a $50 retail purchase!) to turn the sweet bunny into a birthday critter.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players theme challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects! I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

 

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge!

I started with a slightly-bigger-than-I-needed piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that I embossed in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut the panel down to size, cut the second-to-largest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Die set out of the middle of the it – on a jaunty angle.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat.  Then I popped the die cut rectangle back in its “hole” with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I made the heart using the white-side of a Heart Doily – coloring it with my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend.  I put a piece of Stampin’ Dimensional under the left side of the heart and used Liquid Glue on the rest of the heart to adhere it to the card front.

On a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the totes-adorbs bunn-ya from Welcome Easter in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored him with my Light Petal Pink, Gray Granite and Crumb Cake Stampin’ blends.  Then I cut him out with a circle Stitched Shapes Die.

I added a couple of bees – also from Welcome Easter – in Tuxedo Black, colored in with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.

The die cut is adhered with a Dimensional under the right side and Liquid Glue on the rest.

I stamped the Welcome Easter sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Petal Pink and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die – then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the card front.  And – that was it!

On the inside, I used the sentiment from Happy Birthday To You in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Very Vanilla.  I added the bunny and a few bees, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another bunny and bees on the front….

…and some Petal Pink paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  That little Welcome Easter bunny makes me smile every time I see him!  As do the other sweet images in the stamp set!

I love that there are also non-Easter sentiments in the set – making it even more versatile and fun!  I hope you like!

We’ve had a casualty.

Background:

 

It turns out that INFLATABLE balls are perhaps not the best equipped to deal with….teeth.

It took approximately one second for the Big Blue Ball to stop playing.

Finn – couldn’t quite grasp the underlying problem.

Get up!

What’s WRONG with you?!?

Stupid Big Blue Ball. 🙁

Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts and Flowers

Hey y’all!  It’s Friday and the very last day of January!  Which means…there’s only FOUR MORE DAYS until you can get your hands on the Coordination Product Release goodies!  If you’ve been off-planet for a minute and don’t know what I’m talking about…..scroll down!  All the deets are down below!

I used one of the new die sets – called the Sending Flowers Dies – and the coordinating Sending You Thoughts stamp set (a Level 1 Sale-A-Bration reward) to make today’s card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I pulled out a pretty Pool Party paper from the Tropical Oasis DSP (LOVE the versatility of this paper pack!!) and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.

From a square of Whisper White, I cut the big circle die in the Sending Flowers Die set.

Using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack, I colored the stems and leaves of the die cut.  Then I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals – and smaller pieces, too – to pop the die cut onto the card front.

The die set has two small flower dies – each die cuts four flower shapes.  I used both dies to cut flowers from So Saffron, Mango Melody and Grapefruit Grove card stock.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the flowers to their matching shapes on the die cut and added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the middles.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Sending You Thoughts sentiment in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White and cut it with the label die in the Sending Flowers set.  I also cut a second label in So Saffron.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the two labels together with a little offset.  Then I wrapped some So Saffron Baker’s Twine (from the Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequins Pack (another of the $50 Level 1 Sale-A-Bration choices) around the end of the label, tying it in a bow at the end.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front.  Then I added another couple of die cut flowers and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel at the end.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Sending You Thoughts in Granny Apple Green to a Whisper White panel.  I adhered another couple of Sending Flowers die cuts next to it.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and then into my Granny Apple Green card base and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more flower die cuts and Rhinestones on the front (I know this card will be inside a package – heck, the sentiment practically DECLARES that it will!) so I wasn’t concerned with mailing it on its own…

…and I added a little more of the Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So…I’ve already told you how much I love this Sending You Thoughts stamp set.  The sentiments are awesome and the fact that it’s free during Sale-A-Bration is icing on the cake!!  And now – add in the gorgeous floral die cuts in the Sending Flowers Die set (which you’ll be able to pick up starting on 4 Feb!).  Wow!  I hope you like – and have added this die set to your Must Have list!

If you’d like to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below as well as the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


You guys remember Glamour Shots?  Like…from the 80’s?

You know – where you go in to the photo studio in sweats and a raggedy t-shirt and 3 hours later you come out with photos that look like you spent three hours getting all dolled up?

Are those even still a thing?

IF they are – then Finn STILL would not go.

No need.

He rolls out of bed in the morning with his Farrah Fawcett hair looking like he spent an hour or three in the makeup chair.

I give you…Glamourous Finn!

See what I mean?

One handsome and glamourous dude!!

This week is a theme challenge – with butterflies taking a front-row-seat.  So – I pulled out the Positive Thoughts stamp set with the matching Nature’s Thoughts Dies (which YOU’LL be able to get on 4 Feb!).  I used a couple of sentiments from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, too.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Just Us Girls Guest Designer – Peaceful Painted Poppies Birthday Card

Good morning, my peeps!  I’m back early on a Saturday morning for week-two as a Guest Designer at the Just Us Girls Challenge!

When I saw our challenge, I took it as a clear sign that it was time for a good ole collage card.  So, I decided this would be a good week to go all-in with the Painted Poppies and Peaceful Moments bundles.  And I do mean…ALL in!  Take a look-see:

And – here’s the challenge we’re bringing you this week!

I hope my card will inspire you to get crafty and come on over to play with the Just Us Girls challenge!  Looking forward to seeing what you create!

I also used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches for some inspiration!

I started with some of the pretty striped paper from the Painted Poppies DSP and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.  I used a different – solid green – pattern for the vertical stripe – also matted on Basic Black and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I matted a piece of Whisper White on Basic Black and added the sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Poppy Parade ink.  Then I adhered the panel onto the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next, it was time to “grow” some flowers!  First, I used the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo all over a piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock.  Then I cut two solid flowers from the stamped card stock using the Poppy Moments Dies (which is bundled with the Peaceful Moments stamp set).  I cut two outline flowers from Poppy Parade and adhered them to their flowers with Liquid Glue.

I cut several solid leaf shapes from Old Olive vellum – found in the Perennial Essence Vellum Pack (annual catalog).  The detail leaves are cut in Mossy Meadow.  I again used Liquid Glue to adhere all the pieces together.

I cut a few rosebuds from the stamped Flirty Flamingo and their stems from some of the dark green paper in the Painted Poppies DSP (same paper that I used on the vertical strip).

With all the pieces and parts built – it was time to build the collage.  So…I laid it all out…

When I was happy with it I took the photo (above), then I picked up the “top” flower – and took another picture.

From there, I assembled the collage using Liquid Glue.  I adhered the bow – which is two lengths of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine – with a Glue Dot.

Then I added the final flower with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Basic Black flower centers (cut with the dies in the Poppy Moments Dies) with Liquid Glue and some gold sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequin Assortment and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second Peaceful Moments sentiment in Poppy Parade on a Whisper White panel.  I added the Painted Poppies two-step flower images in Poppy Parade and Flirty Flamingo.  A single gold Peaceful Poppies Sequin finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Poppy Parade card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Painted Poppies flowers on the front…

…and more of the Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Okay, y’all – how gorgeous is this double-bundle Suite?!  The colors and the dies and and and…. simply stunning!  Painted Poppies – with its Painted Labels dies – provide the images and the Peaceful Moments set with its Poppy Moments Dies adds sentiments and a plethora of die-cut florals for all your projects!  I hope you like!

So – PSA!  I’ll be live tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’re going to make a fun little card using the new Beautifully Braided bundle.  Take a sneaky peek!

Hope you’ll be able to join me!  🙂

Tonight.  Right here.  7pm Eastern!

Finn Fan Fix


On Fridays – a thing happens that both Finn and I LOVE.

For very different reasons.

Finn – because of the treats.

Me?  Because of the clean, fresh-smelling house that happened without my help! 🙂

Yep – Friday is….Miss Sonya-Day!

And – Finn absolutely knows -“Miss Sonya is here”.  He flies to the house from wherever we are to say hello and get the treats she always brings!  🙂

The downside – for him – is that he (I) has to pick up his toys on Friday morning, where they have to stay until she’s done mid-afternoon.

They go in the “toy bed” and he patiently-ish waits until it’s okay to start pulling them back out!

He peruses them all.  Paws at them a bit – to seperate them and remind himself of how many he has (it’s a lot!).

Then – with one last pass – he picks THE one that will do for a few minutes.

Looks like Mr. Zombie made the cut today!

Won’t be a minute – they’ll all be strewn hither and yon across the living room.

Exactly.  Like.  A.  Toddler. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Little Ladybug for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When you see the color challenge you’re going to think From My Heart…Valentine’s Day…Love.   Well – I got at least ONE of those on today’s card!  I pulled out the Little Ladybug special Host stamp set from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration Flyer and added some From the Heart Specialty DSP to make a…birthday card!  Take a look-see:

I’m guessing you’ve probably guessed the challenge?

I pulled my layout inspiration from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

I started with some From My Heart Specialty DSP – look at that shiny red foiling!!  Wow!  I matted that panel on Basic Black for the card front.

The smaller art panel is Whisper White.  I used my Stamparatus to stamp the big flower from Little Ladybug in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, then I matted it on Basic Black and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Little Ladybug in Versamark Ink on a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it with my Heat Tool.  When it had cooled a little, I cut it out with the smallest rectangle die in the new (and WONDERFUL!!!) Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

I popped the sentiment on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the ladybug herself, I stamped her twice in Tuxedo Black using my Stamparatus – once on Whisper White and then once on a different From My Heart Specialty DSP design.

The Whisper White version was cut out with the ….drum roll, please!!…the new LADYBUG DIES!!

How cool are those?  And you’ll be able to get them on 4 Feb!  Or…right now if you join Stampin’ Up!! 😉

Anywho – I cut the Whisper White version with the die. I colored her face with my Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend – with a dab of rouge with my Light Flirty Flamingo Blend.

On the DSP ladybug, I fussy cut just the wings.  ‘I also cut part way up the line dividing the wings – to partially separate them.  I used a stylus on the back of the wings to round them a bit and colored them with my Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend.

I added them to the Whisper White ladybug with a Black Stampin’ Dimensional – a full one under the larger wing and a little piece under the small side.  I used a dimensional and some Liquid Glue to add the ladybug to the card front.  Then I finished it off with some From My Heart Faceted Gems – adhered with tiny dabs of Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Little Ladybug in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped another little ladybug in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Real Red Stampin’ Blends Combo, Light Smoky Slate and Light Flirty Flamingo.  I used my Stampin’ Blend Color Lifter to lighten the middle of her belly – to make her a little…rounder!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Flirty Flamingo card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another ladybug on the front…

…and more of that gorgeous From My Heart Specialty DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  This is such a pretty color combination and the beautiful foil-accented From My Heart Specialty DSP is all-in with it!  I think we can all agree that the Little Ladybug stamp set – which you can get for FREE with a $300 order while Sale-A-Bration is going on! – is simply the cutest.  And…with the pending addition of the Ladybug Dies?  Oh my goodness!!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Coastal Timeless Tropical Oasis for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

For today’s card, I went back to the gorgeous Tropical Oasis suite of goodies.  Uhm – you can get this TOMORROW!!  Whoo-hoo!!  I used the Timeless Tropical stamp set and bundled In The Tropics Die set, combined with some pretty “quiet” Tropical Oasis DSP.   Take a look-see:

And here’s the sketch!

I started with some solid-ish designed paper from the Tropical Oasis DSP and matted it on Grapefruit Grove for the card front.  the center panel is more Tropical Oasis DSP, embossed in the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Grapefruit Grove.  I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped three sets of palm trees from the Timeless Tropical stamp set, using the marker-to-rubber coloring technique.  This technique is made super easy with the Stamparatus! Put the cardstock in place – put the stamp in place – and you can stamp as many times as you need – layering that color to make gorgeous images!

First I colored the leaves with Pear Pizzazz – using my Stampin’ Write Marker and directly inking the rubber stamp image.  Then I stamped it.  Next, I added some Old Olive and stamped it.  I also made one tree where I used Mint Macaron and Old Olive, for a little different look!  Each tree looks just a little different – even using the same colors on them.  Love!

I used the same technique for the trunks – using Soft Suede and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I cut the trees with their coordinating die in the In The Tropics Die set.

I cut another piece of the brown Tropical Oasis DSP and matted it on Grapefruit Grove.

I added two palm trees to the card front with Liquid Glue – leaving one trunk on the left-side tree “loose” so I could slide the small sentiment panel underneath.

I added the small panel with Liquid Glue – and then adhered that loose trunk down, too.

The final tree has Stampin’ Dimensionals under the leaves and Liquid Glue on the trunk.

I cut out three “aloha” sentiments from Grapefruit Grove using the die in In The Tropics.  These are adhered together in a stack with Liquid Glue – then adhered to the card front with more Liquid Glue.

An Old Olive gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones finished it off.

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Tropical Oasis in Grapefruit Grove on a Very Vanilla panel – then I stamped some trees in the same way that I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more of the Timeless Tropical trees on the front…

…and some more Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Timeless Tropical stamp set is absolutely perfect for coloring!  The images were just made for the marker-to-rubber technique – and really allow you to make some realistic looking trees!  And no one can deny the stunning beauty of the Tropical Oasis DSP, right?  Gorgeous!  I hope you like!
