Flamingos for My Birthday

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Bundle

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: https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/products/101023/tropical-oasis

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Suite

When you purchase the Timeless Tropical stamp set with coordinating In the Tropics Dies as a bundle (you receive a 10 percent discount when you purchase them together) and add in the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper, you qualify to receive one FREE Sale-A-Bration item. Choose from exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, a card kit, a flower punch, and more. These are great items to add to your crafting collection.

Thanks to everyone who sent cards, text messages, and email to help me celebrate my birthday. I’ll be featuring several other cards throughout the next few weeks. I know a lot of talented people!

Thanks for stopping by today. Look below to see a list of products Ginger used to create this card.
