Hello everyone. It is time for another Stamp Off Challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me! This time our challenge was to use our favorite stamp set from the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog. This was really hard to me because I have so many favorites from this catalog so I had a hard time choosing. I decided on using the Tropical Oasis Suite but only because I haven’t used it that much.
The Tropical Oasis Suite includes the stamp set called Timeless Tropical, the matching dies called In The Tropics, Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper, a gorgeous embossing folder called Coastal Weave, ink, ribbon, embellishments and even a Memories Or More Card Pack! It is an amazing Suite and the colors are gorgeous. This is one of the Suites that Stampin’ Up!® made it possible to order everything in it with just one item number (#153941). If you buy the entire Suite you would be eligible to get FREE two $50 Sale-a-bration items or one $100! Free is always great!
The colors I used for my card are Terracotta Tile and Granny Apple Green. Terracotta Tile is one of the new InColors. It is a beautiful coral/orange-like color and is much softer looking in person than in my photograph or the catalog.
To make this card, I first stamped two sets of the Palm Trees in Granny Apple Green and cut them out using the matching dies from In The Tropics. The rest was easy! I used the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper for the top half of the card and just layered a piece of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave ribbon around it before adhering it to the Terracotta Tile card base.
The sentiment is from a new stamp set in the Mini Catalog called Layered With Kindness. I punched it out using a new punch called Label Me Fancy.
Now let’s go see what Buffy’s and Jackie’s favorite stamp sets are in the 2020 Mini Catalog. I am sure they had a hard time choosing too

Beautiful card! I almost used this bundle today; I’m glad you did! This is so bright and cherry (which we need this week).
Susan, this is a wonderful card. I love the colorful background behind those trees. It makes it really quirky and fun
Ah, the tropics! Wishful thinking on this rainy day. Thanks for sharing a ray of brightness, Susan!
