Cheers to You...

G'Day Stampers,

I hope you all had a great Christmas, despite the floods in Qld & the snow in parts of USA & Europe.  To think that Perth has Bush Fires!

Today's card is from the sketch over at Stamping 411 and as usual a great one to use in creating a card or project.

For my card, I used supplies from the current Summer Mini Catalogue.  I cut my Cardstock - So Saffron and adhered Regal Rose to the top of it.  I then cut a piece of DSP - Island Oasis - to adhere to the top of Regal Rose.

Using my Scallop Trim Punch, I punched both top & bottom of the Tempting Turquoise Cardstock and adhered a piece of So Saffron across the middle of it.

I then stamped the sentiment from "Cheers to You" in Chocolate Chip directly onto the So Saffron.  Inking the branch in Old Olive from the Stamp Set "Tropical Party", I stamped a couple of random images directly onto the So Saffron.

I inked the coconut from the same Stamp Set, coloured the umbrella & straw using my Watercolour Pencils, cut around the image & adhered over the top of the branches using SU® Stampin' Dimensionals.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Cheers to You, Tropical Party*
Inks - Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Cardstock - Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Rose Red
DSP - Island Oasis*
Punches - Scallop Trim
Accessories - Snail Adhesive, Watercolour Pencils, Stampin' Dimensionals

*Summer Mini-Catalogue - 2011

Until next time, Enjoy!

I love this card, so bright and cheerful, just what we need with all the dreary weather we have been having. I love seeing all your creations and have today passed along a Stylish Blogger Award to you. I look forward to seeing more of your work in 2011
