Sending You Summer Paradise!


Hello friends!  I have a card to share today using products 

I am using Simon Says Stamps Tropical Silhouettes stamp set along with Autumn Leaves stamp set.  I chose a few of the beautiful palm leaves to stamp repeatedly to create a background in shades of greens.  I used Pinkfresh Studio Over the Hill inks and evergreen ink. I added of the the outline stamps from Autumn Leaves to stamp using intense black ink for some variation and contrast. The base of each leaf is a bit darker.  

I die cut the panel with Waffle Flower A2 die.  I added some black splatters using an artist brushI used foam tape to add the panel to a top folding white card stock base. I also die cut a gold glitter card stock frame using Altenew Fine Frames die to add to the card base to frame the raised panel. 

I finished the card with a few Clear Sequins Mix.  

I am playing along with The Paper Players and Happy Little Stamper Anything Goes and Tinsel (I used tinsel glitter and glitter card stock)

Here is a list of many of the products I generally
use every time I make a card.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
