Another card from the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack

  • Tropical State of Mind . . . A Memories & More Card
  • Tropical Oasis Suite for Fast, Easy Cards
  • Join Us for Tropical Oasis and More Card Class.  See below 
  • More ideas for Tropical Oasis Suite  

    Another day; another card made from the Topical Oasis Memories 
    & More Card Pack.  It seems like recently, whenever I get into a time bind trying to get a card make for my daily blog post, I find myself reaching for the memories & More Card Pack from the Tropical Oasis set.  
    Today I chose one of the smaller card from the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Pack with an image of a Flamingo.  The card has a wonderful sentiment scrolled across it, saying Tropical State of Mind.  So true.  You can't help but get into a Tropical State of Mind when looking at this fun card. 




This card uses a Flirty Flamingo basecard.  Then a layer of one of the prints from the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Papers.  Then the image is one of the smaller cards from the Tropical Oasis Memories and More Card Pack.   
                   




I tried ribbon after ribbon from my stash before I stumbled on this perfect 3/8" Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon to use on this card.  It picked up the colors of the print in the Designer Series Paper perfectly.  I tied it in a bow and added it to the front of my card  Then, the card still looked a little plain.  I found some gold flower sequins in my Peaceful Poppies Sequins and added them to the top of the card.  Finished in minutes.

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday To You Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set

  • Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday To You Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set
  • Coordinating Birthday Dies
  • Join Us for Tropical Oasis and More Card Class.  See below 
  • Happy Birthday Stamps & Coordinating Dies 

    Today I'm playing with one of the free Sale-a-Bration Stamps Sets, the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set.  I'm also using the Birthday Dies, one of the coordinating products introduced in early February.  I love the fact that this set can be used beyond birthdays.  It's perfect for Anniversaries, leaving for a new job, or any celebration involving a cake.  Place a $50 order and the Happy Birthday set can be yours as a free Sale-A-Bration selection.  You'll want to order the Birthday Dies, item #153590, $27 USD, to get the most out of your Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set.  You won't find the dies in any of the catalogs, but it's available on the web site.  Order today, as both the stamp set and dies are only available until March 31, 2020, or while supplies last.             
    




This card begins with a Thick Whisper White Basecard.  Then a layer of Whisper White Cardstock dry embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  Then a 2"strip of one of the prints in the Best Dress 6 x 6" Designer Series Paper.  Or, if you join Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator during Sale-A-Bration, one of the free gifts in your Starter Kit is a pack of 6 X 6" paper pack that includes this prints.   
                   




Then I stamped the cake in Tuxedo Black Memento ink from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set onto Whisper White.   I next stamped just the three flower onto Whisper White, as the Birthday Dies include a die just for the 3 flowers allowing you to add more dimension to your card. I used Highland Heather Blends, Purple Blends, Old Olive Blends, Smoky Slate Blends and Crumb Cake Blends to color the cake, cake stand, and flowers.

I also die cut two Silver elements using the Birthday Dies out of Silver Foil Sheets, and placed them behind the cake.  To me this make the cake card perfect for an Anniversary or an elegant Birthday.   I stamped the sentiment in Highland Heather ink on Whisper White.  I die cut two rectangles with the Stitched Rectangle Dies for the sentiment.





You'll love creating special Birthday or Anniversary cards using the Happy Birthday To Yo Stamp Set and coordinating Birthday Dies.   Look through the entire  January -June 2020 min Catalog to select your items to order.  Then, based on your $50 or $100 order, select Free gifts from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  You'll love everything you make with these wonderful products.
