Every time a new Stampin’ Up!® catalog comes I get so involved in it I forget there is an Annual Catalog full of wonderful products. I seem to always keep the new products in front of me and the older ones get lost in the shuffle. The other day I went through some of the older products and pulled out the stamp set called Timeless Tropical. This stamp set has coordinating dies (although I didn’t use them on this card) too.
To make this card I first colored the palm tree stamp using the Just Jade and Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ ® Write Markers. Markers are a great way to get two or more colors on your stamp. After coloring them you “huff” (or breathe heavily) on them to reactivate the ink. After stamping them I cut them out using a die from the Hippo & Friends die set. I stamped the sentiment using Cinnamon Cider ink and cut that out using a die from Tasteful Labels. Then I layered both images on top of a Just Jade stitched rectangle.
The Designer Series Paper is from the InColor 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Assortment.
I know I promised some photographs of baby Jackson who was born October 2nd. He is such a sweet boy.
Here is a photo of his big sister, Emy holding him. I think she is trying to find out where all his hair is. She seems to be adjusting to having a baby brother although she made it very clear she wanted a sister and not a brother!
This card completely relaxes me. So calming and beautiful. And that little Jackson is sooooo darling. I’m so happy for his grandma!
Oh, to be somewhere sunny under a palm tree! (we’re having our first snowfall here, today). Love your card, and little Jackson – omgosh adorable!! ♥
What a wonderful card, Susan! I love the layout – and it’s perfect for today, because we’re finally getting fall weather (so this makes me feel warmer). Jackson is adorable and Emy will be a great big sister. (Little brothers are a lot of fun!)
