Tropical Birthday

February 25, 2020

I had so much fun creating my first card using the Tropical Oasis Memories and More cards, I decided to CASE this one from the 2020 Handmade For You Mini Catalogue.  I trimmed a little from one of the 4″ x 6″ Tropical Oasis Memories and More card and attached it to scored and folded Thick Very Vanilla card.  I cut the pineapple from Daffodil Delight card using the In The Tropices Dies.  I sponged some Daffodil Delight ink all over it to add some definition.  I cut the pineapple leaves from Old Olive card using the In The Tropics Dies, sponged over some Old Olive ink and curled the pieces that stand up.  I stamped the greeting from the Timeless Tropical stamp set onto a rectangle of Very Vanilla card using Soft Suede ink.   I frayed the ends of a length of 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim before attaching it to the back of the greeting using Mini Glue Dots.  and attached the piece to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the frangipani flower three times onto Fluid Watercolour Paper using Saddle Brown Stazon ink.  I used an Aqua Painter to add Crumb Cake and Terracotta Tile ink to the flowers to colour them.  I cut the flowers out using the In The Tropics Dies and attached them to the card front using dimensionals.  Lastly I added Clear Faceted Gems to the centres of the flowers.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped, coloured and cut out one frangipani flower as before.  I also stamped one single leaf using the Saddle Brown Stazon ink and coloured it using Old Olive ink.  I cut out the leaf using the co-ordinating In The Tropics Die and attached it to the back of the frangipani before attaching the piece  to the lower left hand corner of the inside of the card.

My card doesn’t actually look like the one in the catalogue (it’s on page 40), but I love the way it turned out.  The Tropical Oasis Memories and More cards make it so easy to create quick and beautiful cards.  AND what about the Saddle Brown Stazon ink isn’t it amazing.  It seems to let the colour of the flowers shine more than if you use Black Stazon ink.  Have you tried this amazing ink yet?  If not, well, maybe you should.

I hope I am inspiring you to take another look at the Tropical Oasis Product Suite including the Tropical Oasis Memories and More cards.  I’d love to know what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
