I used the Timeless Tropical Photopolymer Stamp Set and the coordinating In The Tropics Dies from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog to create this thank you card. It features a fun peek-a-boo die cut with a smooth circle die from the Layering Circles Dies. Enjoy!
The Paper Cuts
- Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4′′ x 11′′ scored at 5 1/2′′ (card base).
- Basic White Cardstock: 3” x 6” (for stamping & die cutting)
- Flirty Flamingo Cardstock: 1″ x 2″
- Old Olive Cardstock: 1″ x 4″
I began by stamping the two flower images and two leaves on Basic White Cardstock with Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them with Stampin’ Blends Combos. I began by filling in two petals (with the stamin) of the hibiscus with Light Flirty Flamingo, adding a slightly smaller layer of Dark Flirty Flamingo, then Light Real Red, Dark Real Red, Light Cherry Cobbler and Dark Cherry Cobbler. Tip: when working with a smaller area the edges stay wet long enough to blend without going back over them. I repeated for the other 3 petals. For the smaller flower I used the same method with Light So Saffron , adding Dark So Saffron, Light Mango Melody and Dark Mango Melody. For the leaves I used Light and Dark Old Olive. For the stamin, I colored it in with Light Flirty Flamingo, added Light So Saffron on top and then dotted Dark Flirty Flamingo and Light Old Olive on the top half. I then die cut the images by running them through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the coordinating In The Tropics Dies. I also cut the little flowers die from a scrap of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock and the small green leaves from a scrap of Old Olive Cardstock.
Next I cut the 2nd largest smooth circle die cut from Layering Circles Dies from the card front about 3/4″ from the top and sides. I placed the card on the Stamp-a-ratus open to the inside and placed the sentiment and hibiscus stamp down and closed the top to check the placement. Once satisfied, I picked up the stamps, inked them with Tuxedo Black and stamped them. I masked the hibiscus and stamped the two leaves. I also added the hibiscus and leaves to the corner of the Basic White Medium Envelope. Tip: to make the mask, stamp the image on a post it note, catching the sticky edge then trim the image out on the stamped line with Paper Snips. I then used the Stampin’ Blends to color as before. Tip: place a scrap of paper in the envelope to prevent bleed through to the other side.
I adhered the die cut hibiscus, yellow flower and one of the leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. The other components are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. I embellished with Wink of Stella on the Stamins and 3 Crushed Curry Holiday Rhinestone Jewels to some of the flower centers.
