How are you? This week I am revisiting a past blog as we have a new Tropical addition. Its brings thoughts of summer to mind for me (or even Spring would be nice).

The first card features Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green – I stamped all the images on the base card.

The large flower first (feel free to name the flower in the comments) adding the leaves to I was sure where they would show.

I then added the die cut images afterwards, the large flower I added a piece of foam adhesive sheet behind.

Never leave a naked envelope or inner for a card. Adding the small details brings your creation to the next level and makes a professional finish.

A decorated envelope immediately alerts the recipient that there is something special awaiting them.

The new Tropical set is Stampin Up!s Paradise Palms this card uses the stamps with the Stampin Write markers. This allows the texture within the image.

I love the little coconuts 🥥

The next card is more beach like! Using Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody…. I used the large palm trees from Paradise Palms.

This set does also come with dies to step your projects up to the next level.

The next card I uses Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green. I decorated the envelope this time with Stampin Up! Stamp Write Markers.

Simply fold out the flap of the envelope and draw the pen across to create the lines. I stamped the palm tree in a circle behind – using the same technique as previously (why complicate things)

Shop with me to recreate these projects
