Hi Stampin’ Peeps!!
I lived in Hawaii for five years, and when I saw the TROPICAL CHIC BUNDLE, it reminded me of all of the awesome stationery and gift packaging I
hoarded *admired* (and purchased in normal amounts–LOL) while I lived there!!
The holidays were a great time to
hoard *stock-up*, because all of the cards, gift packaging, and stationery was fun and festive, but still maintained an island theme!
When I saw this set, I knew I had to create something amazing for the holidays, and I love the way this card turned out!
Happy Stampin’! 🙂
Hi Stampin’ Peeps…No, I actually mean, HI!
I’m sending you a big “HI!” today because of the really large “HI!” I was able to make for this card using the LARGE LETTERS FRAMELITS Dies! The DSP (Designer Series Paper) is from the ANIMAL EXPEDITION DSP Pack, and I just love the hippos on this piece! Even though we can only see their heads, hippos are big, and I wanted a big sentiment to go with them–that’s where the LARGE LETTER Framelits came in!
Tip: Use TEAR & TAPE to adhere the letters to the card. Cut two strips the length of one of the letters, and then cut those strips down the middle longways to make four strips the length of the letters. For the exclamation point, you’ll need to trim one end, and that will give you the small piece you need for the “period” part of the punctuation!
Happy Stampin’…even though there is no Stampin’ on this card! 😉
Hi Stampin’ Peeps!
I rarely drink tea, but I like it sometimes, and that’s the only reason I put both coffee and tea in the title of this card…well, that and the fact that I used the COFFEE CAFE Stamp Set, the COFFEE CUPS Framelits Dies, and the TEA ROOM SPECIALTY DSP (Designer Series Paper!) I just LOVE the spoon background of this paper, and I think it’s perfect for coffee OR tea! 😉
The colors on this card are Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla, and the Crumb Cake NATURE’S TWINE is the perfect accent to bring it all together!
(Note: NATURE’S TWINE is thick, so I secured my bow with Baker’s Twine, and used double Dimensionals–one on top of the other–to secure my coffee cup to the card!)
(PS: The NATURE’S TWINE is a set of four spools of twine, and the colors are: Crumb Cake, Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove, and Mint Macaron!)
Happy Stampin’! 🙂
