Feeling Tropical

I've been fixated on tropical themed cards lately! 
The first card used Stampin' Up! Cool Caribbean, Bermuda Bay, and Garden Green card stocks, Stampendous "Jungle Birds" for parrot, Hello Hibiscus by Clearly Besotted, smaller white flower is by RSP Honolulu, Background is by Hero Arts leaves and vines fancy die.
The second card uses a Lawn Fawn Tropical background frame die, Pretty Pink Posh tropical stamps and a background created with distress oxide inks. Aloha and mahalo for visiting!

Challenge for food and drink, I went with a tropical beverage. Everything is yummy when you drink it from a coconut, I'm sure :)
Sunny Studio Stamps Tiki Time elephant, Pretty Pink Posh hibiscus stencil in craft white over a simple background of scribbled swipes of Copic markers to create an easy rainbow. Then ran it through Big Shot with a 3d tropical leaves embossing folder. Aloha die is by Lawn Fawn.


More Christmas in July!

I hope you can join us for this week's color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. The colors are Rococo Rose, Mint Macaron, and Shaded Spruce (or the closest thing you have). Optional theme of Christmas.

I used Stampin' Up's Pretty Pines thinlits for the greenery in the greens and Spellbinders poinsettia die for the flowers. Base is Rococo Rose with a Sizzix 3D embossing folder. Sentiment is by Stampabilities in the Spruce color.

Party Animal

 Lots of Lawn Fawn on this boy's birthday card! Love Ya Bunches monkeys and Wild For You lion and sentiment, tropical leaves stencils and vines and mini flowers from the tropical background leaves dies, new birthday sentiment die cut. I added some Nuvo glow in the dark drops to the flower centers. This made me smile so I hope he loves it!

Guiding Light

Bought the whole beautiful bundle from the new Craft Consortium release Sea and Shore. Looking for some samples to be inspired by but there is nothing really out yet. A great challenge for myself, to come up with some ideas for these beach/nautical/sea creatures stamps and papers. (And shell charms, sequins, die cuts. Swoon!)

I am so happy to be a guest designer on Splitcoast's Tuesday color challenge team for the month of July.

I used the Simon Says Stamp gnome die, January 2021 card kit, and sentiment from Gnome Peeking.
