TSSC125 – Island Oasis

I just got a new camera for my early birthday present.  I want to have time to play with it a little before vacation.  It is much more compact than my other camera, but I wanted one I could just slip into my purse when I'm on the go!  Hopefully it won't take too long to learn all the new settings!

I decided to play along with Technostampers Monday Lunchtime Challenge!  It looked like a fun sketch!  I ended up only stamping the greeting, though…the rest is diecuts and designer paper!



I started with a base of Tempting Turquoise and added a layer of Rose Red.  I cut the leaves pattern from Island Oasis Designer Paper and layered it on Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then on the Rose Red.  I cut the large flower with the White Polka Dot pattern from Island Oasis DSP and the center floral from the Pumpkin Pie Polka Dot with the Island Floral Bigz Die.  I added a Rose Red Scallop Circle under the smaller flower and a Pumpkin Pie Corduroy Button in the center.  The flower is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, I stamped the greeting from the stamp set in the Summer Mini Catalog called Favorite Thoughts in Rose Red on Whisper White and placed the edge under the flower. 


It's a fun, simple and quick card that shows off the Island Oasis DSP and Island Floral Bigz Die!  Fun!


And…if you like challenges!  Create with Connie and Mary is looking for three Design Team Members to play along with our Thursday Creative Challenges each week!  You'll need to use Stampin' Up! only products, have a blog where you can post your Thursday Challenge card, and love to use sketch, color or inspiration challenges as a starting point in your creations!  See more details over on Create with Connie and Mary

Great color combo! Lucky you getting a new camera, I need one so bad but my hubby will not think I do, lol!  Great job with the sketch, I love it flipped and that flower as the focal point.  Love it. Thanks so much for playing along.
