Timeless Tropical

Stampin Up Timeless Tropical

One of the trends I love in the world of stamping is having a black and white background and then adding a pop of color.  Stampin’ Up!® has offered a lot of beautiful black and white Designer Series Paper and this year is no exception.  There are actually two sets of DSP that feature black and white.  One is called Simply Elegant Specialty DSP and one is a Hostess Set called Pattern Party.  The Simply Elegant pack is Basic Black and Basic Gray and features gold, silver and copper foil (which is why it is called “Specialty”).  The Pattern Party pack is black and white on one side and all different colors on the other.  You can only get the Pattern Party pack with a qualifying order but it is an amazing pack of paper and worth it.  I have used it a lot lately.  There are 48 sheets of 12″ x 12″ paper in this pack.

To make this card I used the stamp set called Timeless Tropical.  This is a great set because it has beautiful palm trees, flowers, leaves and sentiments.  It also has a coordinating set of dies called In The Tropics which cuts out all the shapes in the stamp set and also has a huge pineapple it can cut out.  I stamped the flower in Coastal Cabana ink and colored it using the Light Pool Party Stampin Blends.  I stamped the leaves in Granny Apple Green ink and then colored them with the Light Granny Apple Green Blends.  Then I cut them both out using the coordinating dies.

The sentiment I used is from the stamp set called Artistically Inked.

Biggest Wish

Stampin Up Biggest Wish

This simple card was made using lot of fun new products in the Stampin’ Up!® 2021/2022 Annual Catalog.  Let’s start with the sentiment.  It is from a new stamp set called Biggest Wish.  I love that it has big, bold words.  There are five large words in capital letters which include happy, birthday, thanks, hello and friend.  Then it has five lower case stamps using the same words so you can mix and match them.

I stamped the words on a piece of Basic White cardstock and then cut it out using the new Tailor Made Tags Dies.  This set of dies has eight different sized tags in two different styles.  It also has two dies that cut out a circle or half circle to surround the hole.

The Designer Series Paper I used is part of the Host offerings that you can earn for free.  It is called Pattern Party.  It has a whooping 48 double sided 12″ x 12″ sheets of paper ( four each of 12 different designs).  There are some sheets that have black and white designs and some with beautiful colors. This product is not available to buy.  You can only get it through hostess benefit.  Place a $150 or more and you can use $18 of your reward money to get it for free.

The last new product I used on this card are the Basic Border Dies.  I love these dies and you will see them a lot.  They cut out six different borders such as the stitched zig zag one I used, as well as a chevron, rounded, cloud, and two other.

To make the card I first stamped the word happy in Pale Papaya ink and then birthday in Poppy Parade.  Then I cut it out using one the of Tailor Made Tags Dies.  I colored White Baker’s Twine using my Pale Papaya and Poppy Parade Blends.  I cut out a piece of Poppy Parade and Pattern Party paper using one of the Basic Borders Dies.   I adhered the tag to the card using Dimensionals.
