All Things Tropic

2018_09_11 For my card today I used the entire product line from the Tropical Escape  Suite from Stampin Up.  I used the Tropical Escape # 146916 DSP and then added a piece of the Granny Apple Green 1/2 in Textured Weave Ribbon #146920.  For the floral cluster, I stamped the images with the Tropical Chic #146750 stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating Tropical Thinlits #146831 Dies and anchored them to a Stitched Shapes #145372 piece and a Scalloped Circle #141705 mat.

Strawberry Pie

2018_05_08IMG_3072  Happy birthday to my dear friend Karen.  I made a special card for her because I love her perfect strawberry pie that she showed me how to make so many years ago.  I started off by setting the stage with the cute strawberry and coordinating dot DSP from the Tutti- Frutti DSP #145606 collection.  To make the pie I cut the circle and scallop from crumb cake cardstock and the the Stitched Shapes #145372 and a coordinating Layering Circles #41705 dies.  I textured the top crust using the Basket Weave textured impressions embossing folder that will be returning to the 2018-2019 annual catalog. I used a real red marker and a thin coat of fine tip glue to add the strawberry gel to the pie.  The sentiment is from the Apron of Love #145835 stamp set.  Hope your birthday is as sweet as you and your pie Karen!

Sunshine on its way


I promise after tomorrow  I won’t post anymore sunflower cards at least for a while.  I love sunflowers and fall so I made today’s card using the Sunburst Thinlits #140617 and then recut the flowers with the various sizes of the Layering Circles Framelits #141705.  The center of the sunflower is cut using the now retired Beautiful Branches Thinlits.  I added a stem and a leaf along with a the sentiment.
