Stampin' Up! Island Vibes


Hi there!  Welcome to my blog.  For today's card I combined two FREE items available only during Sale-a-bration!  The star of this card is the pineapple from Island Vibes, but the perfect little sentiment comes from Special Moments.  Both of these stamps sets are available FREE with a qualifying purchase and both are sets that can be used many different ways with many different stamp sets. 

The layout for this card was inspired by this great sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday.  This sketch challenge doesn't end until January 23rd, 2022.  I encourage you to give this one a try and share your creation with the rest of us! :)  

Card Base ~ Evening Evergreen Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 2-1/2" x 4"
Scraps of Basic White Cardstock
Inside Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"

  • Stamp the pineapple, focusing on the bottom portion, using Petal Pink ink on a scrap of Basic White CS.  Fussy cut around the bottom part of the pineapple.
  • Stamp the pineapple on another scrap of Basic White CS, this time using Evening Evergreen ink.  Fussy cut around the top part of the pineapple, leaving a small piece of the bottom attached that you can glue to the back of the pink pineapple. 
  • Glue the pineapple pieces together and set aside. 
  • Emboss the front of the Card Base with the Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder (for some reason, my camera wasn't able to pick up this subtle texture)
  • Attach the pineapple to Layer 1 with Stampin' Dimensionals, leaving room for the sentiment.
  • Stamp the sentiment with Evening Evergreen ink beside the pineapple
  • Place three strips of Tear & Tape along the bottom of Layer 1.  Place a 3" piece of 1/8" Cotton Ribbon over each strip of tape.
  • Adhere Layer 1 to the Card Base with Liquid Glue or Stampin' Seal.
  • Finish the front with a few Polished Dots

Stamp the leaves on the inside layer with Evening Evergreen.  I did not stamp off or do anything fancy when stamping.  This stamp is just that awesome, creating the shading and detail on its own.  Adhere the inside layer to the inside of the card. 

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I hope this card inspires you to create!
