Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical stamp set bundle from the upcoming January-June 2020 Mini Catalog to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  We’ve got a sketch challenge this week and here is what I created for it.

Here is the sketch that we’re using this week:

I started by adhering a strip of the Tropical Oasis DSP (available Jan 3) to the front of a Crumb Cake card base with SNAIL.  Then I embossed a panel of Crumb Cake DSP with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder (available Jan 3) and the 3D Embossing Folder Plate and I adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the card front.

I inked the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set (available Jan 3) in Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede inks (just tapped the top on the Pear Pizzazz ink pad and the bottom on Soft Suede) and stamped them on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I cut the image out with the coordinating In The Tropics Dies (available Jan 3) and adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Soft Suede card stock, sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I cut the sentiment out with a Stitched Rectangle Die and then adhered looped Linen Thread to the back with Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut leaves from Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive card stocks with one of the In The Tropics Dies and adhered them with Glue Dots to the card front.  I added three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels (available Jan 3) around the sentiment to finish the card front.

I adhered a strip of the Tropical Oasis DSP to a Whisper White card stock panel to finish the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Birthday Card

I used the Timeless Tropical stamp set from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! January-June 2020 Mini Catalog to create a quick birthday card to share with you today.

My card design was loosely inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #349.

I started by adhering panels of designer papers from the See A Silhouette DSP and Come To Gather DSP to a panel of Poppy Parade card stock with SNAIL.  Then I added a length of the 5/8″ Braided Burlap Trim (available Jan 3) over the seam between the papers with SNAIL before adhering the layered panel to the front of a Poppy Parade card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set (available Jan 3) in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Poppy Parade card stock, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I cut the sentiment out with a Stitched Shapes Die and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.

I added three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels (available Jan 3) around the sentiment to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Perennial Birthday stamp set in Poppy Parade ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then added a strip of Poppy Parade card stock and a strip of See A Silhouette DSP to finish the inside of the card.

You can see a list of supplies needed to create this card, including the card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this blog post.
