Welcome to our February blog hop! We are so glad you are here! If you didn’t already stop by to see Kelly Taranto post be sure to do so. She always makes something fantastic!
I have spent the month of February preparing Make & Take samples that that are part of the add on kits for my upcoming Scrappy Stampers’ Getaway in Carolina Beach at the end of this week. I new I wanted to use the Tropical Hideaway stamp set and when I saw a card that used it created by fellow demo, Diane Evans I knew I had to case it. It was a happy coincidence that I was able to use a new color combo using Evening Evergreen, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz on on of the projects, and while the card is very simple I love how it turned out. I think it would be a great card for almost anyone and could be great for lots of occasions just by changing up the greeting and you could jazz it up a bit by changing the twine to ribbon.
Here are the measurements you would like to recreate this card:
Pear Pizzazz cardstock 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2
Evening Evergreen cardstock 4 x 5 1/4
Old Olive cardstock 3 3/4 x 5
Basic White cardstock 3 1/2 x 4 3/4
Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack 12 inches.
Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots
Use a little washi tape to adhere the Basic White cardstock to the Stamparatus. This will make stamping your images a LOT easier!
Create a mask by placing a piece of scrap paper across the middle of the cardstock and secured it on each side with a little more washi tape.
Stamp the Tropical Hideaway stamp in Evening Evergreen.
Use blending brushes and Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz and a little Evening Evergreen ink pads to color in the leaves. I used the new Small Blending Brushes and think they worked great for this project.
Next, remove the mask and stamp the greeting from Celebrate Sunflowers in Evening Evergreen.
Add the twine under the greeting and attach the layers of the card together using Dimensionals.
Add the Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to finish off the card.
