Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical Small Slimline Card


Every single time I use the Timeless Tropical stamp set I want to go to the beach, preferably in Hawaii.  This set is so fun to create with and really very versatile!  

Today's card was inspired by this sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Challenge.  My card is very similar to the sketch without many changes.  I did think adding the pineapple was a fun touch, what do you think? 

Polished Pink Card Base ~ 6-1/4" x 6-1/2", score at 3-1/4"
In Good Taste Designer Series Paper ~ 3" x 6"
Polished Pink Cardstock ~ 1-5/8" x 1-5/8", and scraps
Basic White Cardstock ~ 3" x 6" (inside), 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" and scraps
Coastal Cabana Cardstock ~ scraps
Shaded Spruce Cardstock ~ scraps
Granny Apple Green ~ scraps 

  • Stamp 'hello' or 'thank you' in the center of the Basic White cardstock square, turning the cardstock so it is in a diamond shape.  (Use Polished Pink ink)  Adhere to the center of the Polished Pink square. 
  • Stamp the pineapple twice on Basic White scraps.  Color with Stampin' Write Markers (I used Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green).  
  • Use In the Tropics Dies to cut out the pineapples, two Coastal Cabana flowers, two Polished Pink flowers, four Granny Apple Green leaves and four Shaded Spruce leaves. 
  • Attach the DSP layer to the front of the card base using your favorite adhesive, then add the sentiment layer.  
  • Layer the leaves on the square/diamond piece (I used Liquid Glue).  Use Stampin' Dimensionals to add the pineapples.  
  • Use Liquid Glue to add the Coastal Cabana flowers, as shown. 
  • For the Polished Pink flowers, cut a Stampin' Dimensional into fourths.  Then, use two on one flower and two on the other.  Add a little bit of liquid glue to the petals that will be on the pineapple.  
  • Add Basic Rhinestones to the front of the card as shown. 

I hope you enjoyed this card!
