Timeless Tropical

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have had enough of winter.  A little winter is ok but six months of winter is just too much.  I used to live downstate New York.  It is only 5 hours from where I live now but weather-wise it is a big difference.  We actually had four seasons and the seasons were evenly spaced.  There were three months of winter, three months of spring, three months of summer and three months of fall.  It was perfect.  Now I live in a place that has two seasons.  They are winter and July.   I hear that Hawaii has only one season.  75. All year round. Sounds like perfection to me!

Every time I take out the Tropical Oasis Suite, I think about warm weather and sunshine and wish I was there. One of the first things that caught my eye when I saw this suite was the large pineapple die.  I thought it was such fun and it is not complicated to put together either.  The pineapple is two pieces.  Easy as pie!  The entire suite is actually beautiful.

To make this card I used Terracotta Tile as a card base.  I layered a piece of the Designer Series Paper called Tropical Oasis on top of it.  I cut out the pineapple using the In The Tropics Dies out of So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz.  The sentiment is from a stamp set called Timeless Tropical which is also part of this suite.

Well, now that I took a little vacation, I get to go back to the snow and sleet that is going on right now.   I hope you are all somewhere warm and sunny.  If you are not physically there , then mentally.

Timeless Tropical

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
