Hi Stampers. Whose ready to get stampin’ with Timeless Tropical?  June is well under way and the heat is coming – that makes me want to run to the tropics!

This Birthday card has a Coastal Cabana card base and a dry embossed layer of Coastal Cabana over it.  The embossing folder is the recently retired Coastal Weave. Hopefully, you snagged that one earlier – it’s a good one!

A piece of Whisper White CS was die cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies.  Various stamps from the Timeless Tropical stamp set were stamped in Coastal Cabana ink onto that layer. The palm tree was inked with Garden Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write markers and stamped onto Whisper White CS.  It was then die cut using the In The Tropics Dies.

Stampin’ Tip: To get two colors of ink on one stamp, ink the stamp with the brush end of the Stampin’ Write markers. Then “huff” (breathe heavy) on the inked stamp.  The moisture from your breathe will sort of re-wet the ink. Then stamp onto the cardstock.

For the sentiment, I stamped the happy birthday sentiment in Basic Gray ink onto a 3/4″ strip of Coastal Cabana. Next, is a 1″ strip of Whisper White CS, slightly longer than the Coastal Cabana strip.  Both ends of both strips were punched using the triple banner punch. I inked the edges of the Whisper White layer with a sponge dauber and Coastal Cabana ink. These are then attached to the card using stampin’ dimensionals.

Inside the card I stamped the sentiment (from the Timeless Tropical stamp set) in Coastal Cabana ink.  I repeated the process to stamp the palm tree in the two colors in the lower corner. OK – now I’m ready for a tropical vacation – how about you?
