Thanks with Tropical Chic

 Buy 3 Get 1 FREE DSP Sale

As you might know, this month I have been exploring Designer Series Paper, I must confess, Tropical Escape is right up there on my "love" list, yes it does feature pink, but looking past that it has beautiful tropical elements as well as dots and linear designs for many creations.


 Freshly Made Sketches
When I saw the sketch at this weeks Freshly Made Sketches, my mind went straight to the Tropical Chic stamp set, and as it is still July that means DSP in my project, and I opted with the gorgeous repetitive frangipani background for my project to tie in with the TGIF challenge too!

I started by using a daubers to sponge So Saffron in the centre of my flowers, and then sponged Blushing Bride on the edge, repeating the process with Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzazz on the leaves, then cut with the coordinating Tropical Thinlets - this is one of my favourite techniques for applying and blending colours directly on stamps.

Next I created the frame using a Stitched Shapes square, and selecting an internal die from Layering Squares, I cut one in Crumb Cake and 2 in Whisper White, cutting a "full" square of Whisper White to stamp the mask sentiment. Then all that was left was to create the arrangement, Oh and I added some Artisan Pearls to accent the centre of the flowers. If you love this card, then you will also love that you can bundle the stamp set and dies together and SAVE 10%!
