Tropical Goodness

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   #ProtipTuesday   Today's card was made by one of my team members, Teresa Murbach. She created it for the Proverbial Stampers & Friends card swap and I think it's adorable. I love the bold colors and design. And Teresa used a technique that I'm happy to share with you because today is Protip Tuesday! 

PROTIP: I like to call this technique "make your own designer series paper background."  Teresa started with a full sheet of Whisper White Card Stock. She used the various stamps in the "Tropical Chic" stamp set and stamped them in Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Shaded Spruce, and Basic Gray all over the entire sheet of card stock. Then she cut the sheet down to 3-3/4" by 5" pieces for her card.

Teresa adhered her "DSP" to a 4" by 5-1/4" Petal Pink Card Stock mat. (Another PROTIP that I've shared with you previously is to cut the scalloped circle piece from the middle of the mat, saving  you some card stock!) Teresa wrapped a length of retired ribbon around her card--but you could use the gorgeous Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon that's current!

Next, she stamped a flower in Petal Pink Ink  and a palm leaf in Granny Apple Green onto Whisper White Card Stock and cut them out with the coordinating Tropic Dies. She stamped a sentiment from the set in Shaded Spruce onto Whisper White and cut it out with a Layering Circles Die. She adhered this to a scalloped Granny Apple Green circle cut with another of the Layering Circles Dies and finally onto a Petal Pink scalloped circle. She adhered this piece and the die-cut elements to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. So cute!
