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.

For today’s card I randomly stamped the leaf images from the Tropic Chic #146753 stamp set from Stampin Up. to get the texture I then used the Tropical Thinlits #146831 and the Big Shot Embossing Mats #146327 so that I could use the framelits to emboss the background. This technique using the Embossing Mats allows you use your framelits for more than cutting. I added the sentiment is from the now retired So Many Shells Stampin Up stamp set.
Today’s card is all about Abstract Impressions for creating a card with a lasting impression. I paired the Garden Impressions #146289 DSP with the Abstract Impressions #147513 stamp set from Stampin Up to make a card with a statement.
I have started to feel so comfortable mixing patterned papers together because Stampin Up makes it so easy when they coordinate their DSP collections. For today’s card, I wanted to use the new Mango Melody cardstock from the Stampin Up’s recent revamped Brights Collection. I textured the base layer using the Petal Burst #141493 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. As luck would have it Mango Melody is one of the colors in the Garden Impressions #146289 DSP collection. For the sentiment I stamped images from the Abstract Impressions #147513 stamp set onto a Stitched Oval #145372 and then added the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday #145519 stamp set.
What I truly love about pretty paper is that it can stand alone and make a beautiful card. The case in point is today’s card featuring the gorgeous paper from the now retired Naturally Eclectic DSP collection from Stampin Up. I added a ribbon (my second love behind paper) and the sentiment from the Barn Door #145865 stamp set stamped onto a Stitched Shapes #145372 piece and matted on a Starburst #143717 mat.
Happy Father’s Day. Today’s card is my favorite one I created in my masculine workshop class and my favorite card using the Stampin Up Apron of Love #145835 stamp set and the coordinating Apron Builder Framelit #145661. The checkerboard background was done using the Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372 and is the perfect setting for the BBQ card.
