TSSC183...

I can't believe the roll I have been on - will it last?????

This card has been created for 2 challenges, the sketch over at Mary-Jo's Blog which is a Blog Hop.  The other is from Handstamped Sentiments which is a theme - Summer.  I know it is hard to imagine summer here in Australia at the moment, but I did use paper & stamps from a past Mini, which I thought suited the challenge well.


Base Card - Old Olive - 5 7/8" x 4 1/8" or 15cm c 10.5cm
Layer 1 - DSP - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Tempting Turquoise - 4 1/2" x 3" or 11.5cm x 7.5cm
Layer 3 - Old Olive - 4 3/8" x 2 7/8" or 11cm x 7cm
Layer 4 - Tempting Turquoise - 3 3/8" x 2" or 9cm x 5cm
Layer 5 - Whisper White - 3 1/4" x 1 7/8" or 8.5cm x 4.5cm

I stamped images directly onto the Whisper White Cardstock, using Old Olive Ink & adhered to the piece of Tempting Turquoise.  I did stamp off a couple of times for some of the images.  For my sentiment, I used Early Expresso Ink.

I run the piece of Old Olive Cardstock through my Bigshot using the Embossing Folder - Square Lattice.  It reminds me of  Bamboo & Thatching, so thought it very appropriate.  This was then adhered to Tempting Turquoise, to the DSP & then to the Base Card - Old Olive.

I stamped my flower onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Daffodil Delight Ink, cut it out & adhered using a SU Dimensional.  After stamping my inside, I then decided that the front looked a bit "Yuh" so I then stamped 2 smaller flowers using Tempting Turquoise Ink.  I adhered these using SU Dimensionals.  It bought the whole card alive.  Much happier.  I added 3 Rhinestones to the center of the flowers.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Tropical Pary, So Happy for You
Inks - Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Early Expresso
Cardstock - Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Old Olive
DSP - Island Oasis
Embossing Folder - Square Lattice
Accessories - SU Dimensionals, Rhinestones, Multipurpose Glue, Bigshot


Until next time, Enjoy!

Very fun card! I like the way the palm branches add movement to the card. The colors are very nice, too! Great layering and, of course, my favorite embossing folder. :) Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
