Good morning! It’s day….whatever!…of the Big Social Distancing of 2020. It’s hard for me to keep track – since I work from home, the only real difference is severely curtailed trips to the grocery! And no – “let’s call the Martins and get dinner tonight” for a while. Which I DO miss. And our friends just postponed their April wedding…which made me sad. 🙁 But – we’re all healthy and safe. And won’t run out of food or…craft supplies any time soon. 😉
Speaking of – one of my very favorite suites in the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog is the Tropical Oasis. I used that one – or parts of it! – today for my card. And – the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack is the star of this show! Take a look-see:
The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
Now – this is a great card if you’ve got a party or some event that you need to go to and would like to NOT have inky fingers!
That’s right – no ink. So stamping! A little fussy cutting and embossing. A die cut or two. And…that’s it! So….hang on – this is a quickie!
I started with a piece of Pool Party card stock that I embossed in the wonderful Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, then matted on Real Red for the card front.
With SNAIL, I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon.
From the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack, I pulled out two of the small cards with the yummy looking tropical coconut drink.
From one of the panels, I fussy cut the entire image. I fussy cut just the umbrella from the second panel.
I popped the image over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I popped the fussy cut umbrella over the first image with more Dimensionals.
Using the sentiment die from In The Tropics, I cut three of the Aloha sentiment from Real Red and stacked them all up with Liquid Glue.
I adhered the stacked sentiment to the coconut – added three red gems from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels….and the card front was done!
On the inside, I used two stickers from the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack on a Whisper White panel.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Soft Suede card base, and to adhere the card front to the front of the card, and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple more Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack stickers on the front…
…and a little Tropical Oasis DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I love all the fun and dare I say…luscious?…designs to be found in the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack. And – although I didn’t use it on this card – the Timeless Tropical stamp is a wonderful set filled with even more tropical images!
If you don’t have this suite – quick take advantage of the last days of Sale-A-Bration and add it to your stash (while earning FREE goodies!). I hope you like!
