Yes, it's my turn to give away two of the CUTEST flip flop notepads that Mary made with the Island Floral Bigz Die in celebration of Tropical Party week over on Create with Connie and Mary! ANYONE can leave a comment on THIS post for your chance to win one of two notepads. Plus, see the other ways you can win at the bottom of this post!
I think I've mentioned that Stampin' Up!'s Tropical Party is one of my FAVORITE sets in the Summer Mini. Not only is it great for cardmaking, it has LOTS of possibilities for scrapbooking, too! I used Mary Jo's Technostamper Sketch Challenge today (TSSC120) as a basis for my card. I decided to flip it on its side for my card.
I started with the base Old Olive cardstock. I added the umbrella pattern from Island Oasis Designer Paper. Then I used the Pumpkin Pie Polka Dot from the same package as the other layer.
For my main element, I inked up the Live, Laugh & Love Happy Birthday stamp from Stampin' Up!'s On Your Birthday stamp set with my Stampin' Write Markers in Chocolate Chip and Rose Red. I stamped the palm leaves from Tropical Party in Old Olive in the corners. The coconut I inked up with Chocolate Chip and used my Stampin' Write Markers to color the umbrella and straw. I cut it out and popped it up on Stampin' Dimensionals. I stamped and cut out three of the small flowers in Tropical Party in Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron, then placed them along the top with Stampin' Dimensionals again. I love how this turned out!
