CARD: Timeless Tropical

Good morning!  I wanted to share a card today that we made at my Stamp Club in February.  


I absolutely LOVE the Tropical Oasis Suite!  It's one of my favorite suites from the Occasions Catalog!  But, for some reason, I get a block anytime I sit down to stamp with it!  Luckily, others haven't had this problem! :-)  I CASE's this card from Marelle Taylor -- please check out her beautiful card HERE.

Here are the supplies used on this card:

CARD: Breathtaking Bouquet

Good morning!!  Had a great day yesterday -- took time in my stamp room!  Stamped for several hours -- pure bliss!  I often turn to Stamp Challenges for inspiration, and yesterday was no exception!  This card was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and the colors at Color Throwdown:


I stamped the image first, in Tuxedo Black ink, the cut out a square using the Layering Squares Dies.  I colored the cut out square using Stampin' Blends (Flirty Flamingo, Seaside Spray & Night of Navy).  The colored squared is attached using Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I'm really happy with the way it turned out!!!  Here are the challenges I used:

Have a GREAT day!!
