Tropical Escape card

One of my favourite suites from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue is the Tropical Escape suite.  Its Designer Series Papers are a pretty combination of greens, pink and black and come in a variety of patterns.  The Tropical Chic stamp set and co-ordinating Tropical Thinlits dies allow you create lots of lovely floral arrangements too.

Stampin' Up! Tropical Chic card by Angela Lovel, Angela's PaperArts

To create this card I started with a Stampin' Up! Shaded Spruce card base layered with two of the Tropical Escape Designer Series Papers with a piece of 1/8" sheer whisper white ribbon covering the join.  I then diecut the square leafy centrepiece and layered some ferns and a stamped flower from the Tropical Chic and Tropical Thinlits bundle onto the card.  The sentiment was stamped and then punched out using the Duet Banner Punch and also layered onto the card.

If you like this card, all products used are listed below and available from my online shop.  Until 31 July, the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper is included in the buy any 3 packs of Designer Series Paper and get 1 Free deal.  A perfect time to stock up on pretty papers.

Enjoy your special day card: 2018-20 In-Color Grapefruit Grove

For anyone who loves the stitched look on cards but doesn't want to do the actual sewing, the Stitched All Around stamp set and co-ordinating Stitched Label Framelits bundle is the perfect answer.  I've used it on this card to make the sentiment centrepiece which also features Grapefruit Grove, the fourth 2018-20 In-Color in this series of posts.

Delightfully Detailed Friendship Card: 2018-20 In-Color Lovely Lipstick

One of my favourite products in the new Annual Catalogue is the Delightfully Detailed Lasercut Specialty Paper.  It is so pretty and delicate and I used a little piece of it on this card, along with the third 2018-20 In-Color in this series of posts, Lovely Lipstick.

Stampin' Up! Delightfully Detailed card by Angela Lovel, Angela's PaperArts

To create this card I started with a Lovely Lipstick card base layered with some Lovely Lipstick card stock which had been embossed using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I then added some of the Delightfully Detailed Lasercut Specialty Paper on top.  The sentiment is from the Detailed with Love stamp set, was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and diecut out using the Stitched Label framelit dies. A butterfly from the Painted Glass stamp set completes the card.
