Stampin’ Up! Tropical Escape Gift Idea

Happy Thursday Everyone

I want to share with you a gift idea that I made for all of my new stamping team mates that I met last week in Orlando at the Stampin’ Up! On Stage Event.

I love this Stampin’ Up! Tropical Escape Suite.  You can order these items by just clicking on the links below.

Tropical Chic stamp set with the Tropical Thinlits and you cant forget the Tropical Escape Designers Series Paper.

These were so much fun to make and super easy too!

Step-By-Step Instructions:

Cardstock cut at 5 1/4″ x 2 1/2″

1 – Score at 1″, 2″ and 4 3/4″

2 – Snip off the to ends

3 – Snip diagonally to make a tab

4 – Fold on the Score lines

5 – Glue Together with either snail adhesive or tear & tape along the edge

6 – I snipped the top to make it easier to pull the nail file out

7 – Then cut a solid piece of cardstock 5″ x 1 1/4″

8 – Glue the holder onto the solid piece of cardstock

9 – Cut a 3/4″ x 3″ strip and wrap around then decorate

10 – I used a circle punch on the nail file for the the ribbon (I found nail files at Walmart 24 files for less then $3.00)

I hope you like my gift idea that you can share with your friends and family.

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!

More Tropical Chic Card Ideas

I am still creating beautiful cards with the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic stamp set and Tropical Thinlits Dies.

Sometimes when you purchase a stamp set you have just one card in mind to make.  What I am really trying to do is when I purchase stamps I want to be able to make all kinds of cards and paper projects. I am finding out that with this stamp set & thinlits dies its really easy to accomplish what I am trying to do.

I had so much fun designing these cards because I was able to stamp different sayings in the center of the circle that makes this set so versatile for every occasion 🙂

If you love this stamp set and thinlits dies you can order them on my website 

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!

Beautiful Tropical Chic Wedding Card

Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic stamp set along with Tropical Thinlits Dies make the most beautiful cards, especially this handmade Wedding Card for our Dear Friends.

I wanted this card to be special so instead of making a traditional card I decided to make a step card.  Once I put it all together, the front panel was too heavy and it wouldn’t stand up and I had to think of a way for it to work.

That’s when I thought of making “kind of an easel” and it worked 🙂

The inside of the card was all hand written but I did layer DSP on the base of the card, then added a white panel on top of that with some stamped fern leaves along the side.

~ Congratulations Jim & Raquel ~

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!
