Tropical Chic Birthday Greetings

Stampin Up Tropical Chic Bundle Tropical Escape DSP Birthday Card ideas Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

This card is for a colleague who was raised in Florida and loves all things tropical. The inspiration for my card came from the TGIF Challenge this week.

I used the greenery as my circle with the banner overlaying on the focal point. A few sequins add the finishing touch.

I brought the theme inside the card and the envelope flap as well. Hey as long as everything is still on the table why not?

Varied Vases Bundle for a Quick and Easy Note Card

Stampin Up Bokeh Dots Varied Vases Anytime card ideas Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

The Balmy Blue Bokeh Dots background stamp adds a dreamy backdrop for my flower filled vases. The vases were created in a snap by punching them out of the Wood Textures DSP. The tulips were stamped in Mango Melody ink and punched out. The other flowers were inked in Garden Green (stems) and Mango Melody and then cut out with my Paper Snips.

A few Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mono Glue, and Basic Pearls and the project was complete.

Altenew Floral Art Thank you card idea Michelle Gleeson

Jennifer Maguire did a blog post using this stamp set and I immediately fell in love and had to have it. You can see Jennifer’s post here.

I used Stampin’ Up! colors Grapefruit Grove, Calypso Coral and Soft Seafoam as my color palette.

The stamp set is a triple stamp set and Altenew provides a nice brochure on how to use the stamps to create each flower. I only used the largest flower in the set. ♥

I also stamped the envelope flap. I inadvertently placed the second stamp on my block backwards so I got a solid image over the floral outline. I decided it provided creative flair and went with it. Hey no one else knows right? Except for all of you now. ; )

See you soon.
