Tropical Holiday

I’ve always lived in cold weather climates, but it would be fun to celebrate the holidays in tropical weather!   Well, with today’s sneak peek I got a little taste of what that would be like playing with the new Pink & Main Deck The Palms stamp set and coordinating dies!

For my first card, I used pattern paper from the Jolly 6×6 paper pad that I layered onto a piece of white cardstock.  Using one of the Stitched Top Note Dies, I cut an opening in the top/center of the layered piece.  On the card base, I sponged yellow ink at the top of the opening; blue in the center then cut cork for the bottom to look like sand. The Deck The Palms images were copic colored, die cut with the coordinating dies and adhered with pop up dots.  The sentiment was stamped on the smallest Stitched Top Note Die.

For my next card, I again used pattern paper from the Jolly 6×6 paper pad.  Remember the center piece I cut in the last card?  I used it here as the backdrop for this flamingo cutie from the Deck The Palms set! 

I added the holly/berries and sentiment to complete the design.  I must admit, I was a bit ‘tickled pink’ with how this one turned out!
