Tropical All Occasion Card Featuring #BirdBanter, #TropicalChic, #AllOccasion, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp

 

 

 

We have a new challenge over at Retro Rubber and you are going to love it as much as I did! I love, love, love Tic Tac Toe challenges! The prompts are great and every card will be different. My card, made with Bird Banter from 2017 Occasions Catalog and Tropical Chic from 2018 Annual Catalog, was so much fun to make, using the bottom horizontal line. Which row are you going to try??

My Secrets to Making This Project
  • I wanted my big tropical leaves to look more realistic so I stamped them in the lighter green, Granny Apple Green, and then took a spong dauber to dabbed the darker green, Shaded Spruce, onto the ends of the leaves. Don’t they look great?

Sending Healing Hugs for Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge

Get Well Card Featuring #HealingHugs, #StitchedLabels, #Petals&More, SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp

 

 

It’s time for a new challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments and this new one is a color challenge, using Blueberry Bushel, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green. What a great combination for summer! I wanted to make a card for someone who just had surgery and thought this card would cheer her up. Healing Hugs is a wonderful new stamp set to have in my collection. What stamp do you think of with this color combination?? I hope you will make a card with it and play along!

 

 

My Secrets to Making This Project
  • Healing Hugs stamp set is one of Stampin’ Up!’s new line of stamps called DistINKtive and have such a unique look to them. I love them! In order to get the ink just right, I have found that applying the ink with a sponge dauber really helps to give the stamped image the perfect amount of ink.
