Good Morning Friends! It's another beautiful day in paradise here :)....sun, heat, wind, dust, repeat, repeat. I was slightly relieved of this vicious cycle while creating for today's Papertrey Ink group post. It's all about the tropics...fresh and fruity!
My first card uses the new Some Like it Hot stamp set and coordinating dies. These gorgeous images come to life with each layer of ink you add....really fun, and the end results are stunning. My MISTI helped immensely lining up my images and creating vibrant layers.
I layered my stamped images over a die cut Monthly Moments: Journal Card 8. Across the bottom of my card I used a decorative border from the new Tropics stamp set and a sentiment from the new It's the Thought stamp set.
On my next card, I used the Tropics stamp set for my sentiment and also for my white, heat embossed leaves. I wanted a soft, subtle look to these lovely leaves, and went with white on white.
I had to use the darling flamingo from the Some Like it Hot stamp set....truly, it's the cutest thing, and of course, the pineapple is as well, so I popped both onto my Gesso/stenciled layer using the Woodblock Prints stencil collection.
Down the left edge, I pulled in the soft yellow of the pineapple by using Chicken Scratch Gingham.
You'll love these fresh, summertime sets! They are so unique and playful.
Thanks for visiting!
