I hope you all had a great Christmas, despite the floods in Qld & the snow in parts of USA & Europe. To think that Perth has Bush Fires!
Today’s card is from the sketch over at Stamping 411 and as usual a great one to use in creating a card or project.
For my card, I used supplies from the current Summer Mini Catalogue. I cut my Cardstock – So Saffron and adhered Regal Rose to the top of it. I then cut a piece of DSP – Island Oasis – to adhere to the top of Regal Rose.
Using my Scallop Trim Punch, I punched both top & bottom of the Tempting Turquoise Cardstock and adhered a piece of So Saffron across the middle of it.
I then stamped the sentiment from “Cheers to You” in Chocolate Chip directly onto the So Saffron. Inking the branch in Old Olive from the Stamp Set “Tropical Party”, I stamped a couple of random images directly onto the So Saffron.
I inked the coconut from the same Stamp Set, coloured the umbrella & straw using my Watercolour Pencils, cut around the image & adhered over the top of the branches using SU® Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I made this card a couple of weeks ago & suddenly realised I hadn’t posted it.
I’ve done a bit of a different fold for this card. Still using your standard size card, I folded the top half of the card in half again.
I’ve used the “Island Oasis” DSP from the latest Mini-Catalogue & adhered DSP down the RHS, while ashering the opposite side of the DSP down the LHS. All SU® DSP is double-sided, which means you receive twice as much DSP.
Using Whisper White on Rose Red Cardstock, I adhered it to the top half of the folded back section of the card.
I then stamped the images in Old Olive onto the Whisper White. Using scraps of Whisper White, I stamped the flower in Rose Red, while the coconut was stamped in Chocolate Chip. The umbrella was coloured in using my Watercolour Pencils.
I cut both the flower & coconut out & using Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhered to the card. I then stamped the greeting in Rose Red.
