Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Thank You Card

For this card I used the Timeless Tropical Bundle and Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper. This paper is so easy to work with and is great for masculine as well as feminine cards.

The base is Whisper White A5 with DSP layered at 4″ x 5 1/4″, 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ and a Whisper White 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder. I distressed all the edges using the open edge of my Paper Snips for a casual feel. The stamping is done in Tuxedo Black. The palms are colored in with the blends listed below, cut with the coordinating die and mounted on Stampin’ Dimensionals. (I cut thin strips from the side for the trunks).

On the inside I adhered a 4″ x 3/4″ piece of the floral DSP. I stamped the message from Peaceful Moments above it. I tied a doubled piece of linen thread in a bow around the palm trunk and snipped the looped end.

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Card

I used the Timeless Tropical Bundle to make this bright card. I love how the colors pop off the black background and I hope you do, too.

The card base is Basic Black Cardstock cut at 4 1/4” x 11” and scored at 5 1/2”. The inside is a 4” x 5 1/4” piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I used scrap pieces of Whisper White for the hibiscus pieces and the label.

I used Momento Tuxedo Black to stamp: the Hibiscus and three (3) leaves from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set, the Thinking of You from the Little Ladybug Stamp Set and the Hibiscus randomly on the Basic Black card front.

I used Stampin’ Blends to color the Hibiscus and three (3) leaves: Dark Daffodil Delight, Real Read Light & Dark, Lovely Lipstick Light & Dark, Old Olive Light & Dark. I then used the In The Tropics Dies to cut out the Hibiscus pieces. The label is from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

The hibiscus on the inside and the envelope is stamped in Lovely Lipstick. First Generation on the inside and Second Generation on the Envelope.

I added a little wink of Stella to the inside of the Hibiscus. It and one of the leaves are popped on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The rest is glued with Liquid Adhesive.
