Tropical Chic Card Sample

Sharing a card sample using Stampin’ Up!’s retiring Tropical Chic stamp set and coordinating Tropical Dies.

I love everything tropical! I love palm trees, the beach, the sun, the sand, and flamingos. Did I say palm trees? So, of course, Stampin’ Up!’s Tropical Chic stamp set and coordinating Tropical Dies have a place in my collection. (The Tropical Dies are on sale for $18.90.)

If you like the set and the dies, hurry to the online store and grab them! They retiring from Stampin’ Up!’s line up and won’t be available for purchase after June 2 (or while supplies last).

My Inspiration

While paging through a recent clothing catalog, I spotted a vibrant matching shirt and pant set. It immediately reminded me of the Tropical Chic stamps. Here’s a look at my inspiration. What do you think? Did I made it work?

The Tropical Chic Card Sample

I used the retiring 2018-2020 In Colors of Blueberry Bushel, Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch, and Grapefruit Grove. As a reminder, these colors won’t be available after June 2. The ink pads, ink refills, card stock, Designer Series Paper, and ribbon are all on Stampin’ Up!’s Last-Chance list. A few items have sold out, but much is still available. Click here to shop the Last-Chance products.

In addition, I tried a modified version of the eclipse technique. Do you see the red palm frond on the right-hand side of the card and the blue frond on the left? After stamping, I used the Tropical Dies to die cut the image and popped the white card front up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

2020-2021 Annual Catalog

Beginning June 3, we can shop from Stampin’ Up!’s new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. As a demonstrator, I received a sneak peek and also got a chance to pre-order a selection of products. I’m excited because the new catalog is filled with some awesome new things.

If you’ve purchased from me in the last six to nine months, I’ve sent a new catalog to you through Stampin’ Up! Watch for it in your mailbox in a couple of weeks. If you aren’t currently working with a demonstrator, I’d love to get you a new catalog. Shoot me a message.

Thanks for stopping by today. I’ve included a list below of all the products is used to create this card.

Flamingos for My Birthday!

I’ve been celebrating my birthday for a couple of weeks now! I received so many fun cards in the mail. This card came from friend and teammate Ginger Borneman. She’s all too familiar with my love of flamingos so she used them for my birthday card.

When I first got a look at Stampin’ Up!’s Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper, I knew I was going to purchase more than just one package. (I’m going to have to do some trading to get extra sheets of the pages with the flamingo design!) This awesome paper can be found in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog on pages 38-40.

But, even though I grew up in and lived in landlocked states, I’ve had a love of everything tropical for a few years. The Tropical Oasis Suite just speaks to me–from the palm trees to the hibiscus to the palm fronds and more–and especially the flamingos.

Here’s a link to see everything that’s included in the suite:
