FabFri139 Greatest Tropical Suite




In Love With This Suite!
It is called the Tropical Escape Suite and it is so me and Lilly Pulitzer!
It has the set called Tropical Chic and matching dies called Tropical thinlits.
My fav is the awesome designer paper and the colors in in!
DSP is called Tropical Escape and it has loads of cool prints!
I pulled a busy one here for my background and layered it on the 
Shaded Spruce card stock and then a Whisper White base.
I then got to work on stamping and die cutting!
I first stamped the fat leaves in Lemon Lime Twist and another 
in Granny Apple Green. I stamped the flowers in Blushing Bride.
Finally I cut the Spruce leaves from the card stock.
I stamped the sentiment from the set in Spruce and punched it
out with the Tailored tag punch. I finished it off with some pearls.
Pearls are always chic!
I hope you enjoy this suite because you will see it all summer long 
right here on my blog!

Bermuda Bay Stained Glass Butterfly


This card I made a few weeks ago today and that night in class 
someone want to buy an anniversary card from me
but I did not have stamped with that sentiment but showed this card
I had just made and she stamped in inside and it worked out.
I say this to show it is good to make cards and not always throw a sentiment on it
so you can use for any occasion that pops up!
I started with coloring the vellum glass window here in Bermuda Bay
and Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends and then layering on 
Bermuda Bay square. I then stamped the butterfly on Whisper White
and colored with same markers.
I popped them all up on a piece of Whisper White ran through
the Hexagon embossing folder then layered on the Bermuda base.
I also cut two of the rectangle windows from the matching dies
set and placed them behind to look like one detailed banner behind.
I used some of my retired black rhinestones to finish it off.

Hope you have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

Kindness Makes World Brighter


I decided I needed to make another beach scene.
More of a sunset again. I started with the Very Vanilla
card stock and layered my sand with the Crumb Cake ink
 and stamps from High Tide.
I stamped the water in Coastal Cabana and the setting sun
in Calypso Coral by using a post it note over the water.
I stamped the birds in Memento Tuxedo Black on the beach
and then sentiment in the same ink but from the Waterfront set.
Before I layered on the Coral base, I stamped some splatter from the 
Waterfront set in the same Coral color ink for some texture.

Very easy and quick card!
Hope your day is happy and thanks for stopping by!

Trees & Leaves Just For You


I stamped these trees in Tranquil Tide and cut them just to lay 
them aside for weeks. I decided they need to get off my desk and on a card!
I had stamped the one full on with the Tide ink and the other off once to make lighter.
I popped them up on a piece of Petal Pink cut with a Stitched Shapes square die and
the senitment stamped on it in Soft Suede from Rooted In Nature set.
I took my Soft Suede banner (yes, you are seeing more pieces left 
over from classes last week) and used the emboss leaves from the die set
to just emboss the banner. 
 This die set called Nature's Roots has several leaves you can emboss with and then
a die to cut them out if want.
I layered it all on a piece of the amazing paper called Nature's Poem DSP
and used some Tranquil Tide to layer then the Sahara Sand base.
I did run a piece of Nature's twine in Crumb Cake around the banner
and tied on a Leaves Trinket in silver to finish it off.

Hope you enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

Floral Birthday


My cutting of this beautiful Delightfully
Detailed laser-cut specialty paper was not great but i cut a little off a 
12 by 12 sheet to layer on my Fresh fig base.
I stamped the sentiment from Cake Soiree on a white 
Stitched Oval in Fig and then what to do?
I decided to add more flowers from the Cake Soiree set
stamped in Petal Pink and cut with matching dies.
I cut a flower die from 
same die set called Sweet Cake framelits and managed to keep it intacted
to pop up.  I added pearls to them then cut the leaves in Mint Macaron 
to finish it off.
I will have to play more with the special paper.  It is white 
on one side and Very Vanilla on the other so can coordinate with all things.
You can even color it if have the patience! haha
 Hope you day is beautiful, too!

Wonderful Tree


I had some pieces of my tree card left over from classes last week
so I decided to use them in a little different way.  I first stamped the 
background with the wood piece stamp from Rooted in Nature
 in Sahara Sand on the Sahara Sand base. 
 I turned the banner to the side after running it through
the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. 
 I stamped the sentiment from same set in Soft Suede and the 
large tree in Mint Macaron.  I cut the tree with matching dies
called Nature's Roots framelits dies and placed it on the 
Petal pink stitched square.  I tied a Mint bow from the 
Nature's twine and added a copper leaf from the 
Leaves trinkets embellishments.
I like these colors together!
But I can't wait to use this set for amazing fall cards coming soon!

hope your day is amazing, too!

Lovely Sympathy


I keep grabbing Lovely Lipstick when I used this set and 
vellum but it is so pretty!
I cut a strip of vellum called Graceful Glass designer vellum.
I colored the the flowers with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin Blend marker
but it look so pink I used the Lipstick card stock to pair with it.
I also used the Old Olive and Pineapple Punch blends
and then layered it on a strip of Whisper white,
I cut a black detailed die from the matching dies called Stained Glass
to layer under. I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Glass set
in Memento Tuxedo Black to finish the card.

I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
Thanks for stopping by!
