Tropical Chic

Stamp Of The Month
Just one of 4 club projects in January

Last month for club the members requested that we use the Tropical Chic Bundle (Full line catalog page 121).  Because this club meets in my home every month, or receive the projects in the mail, I make sure to create full-color step-by-step directions for each one (usually four projects a month made from the same stamp set).

Using the 'leaf window' that comes in the Tropical Thinlits Dies (comes with bundle) we cut out the awesome shape from a piece of 4.25” x 5.5” Whisper White card stock (cs). After stamping the sentiment in in Costal Cabana ink I cut out the cs using the NEW Rectangular Stitched Framelits Dies (Occasions catalog pg. 28).  These are my favorite new dies!

To turn this into a shaker card I added a piece of Window Sheet cut to fit behind the opening in the leaf pattern (3” x 3”) and adhered it behind the cs.  Then I used the Foam Adhesive Strips to create a box on the Window Sheet.  Before adding the sequins I used the Embossing Buddy to lightly dust the sides of the adhesive strips and the window sheet to keep the static under control.  I also cut another piece of Whisper White (3.25” x 3.25”), peeled off the transfer piece from the adhesive strip and adhered the card stock to encase the sequins.  I added adhesive to this new cs backing, however, I used additional pieces of the Foam Adhesive Strips on the rest of the ‘back’ of the stamped Whisper White so that when adhered it to the card base (Costal Cabana cs) it would be the same depth of the shaker box.

Lastly I stamped the individual flower image in Melon Mambo ink and cut out using the coordinating Thinlits dies.  It is adhered using Stampin’ Dimensional and topped with a Clear Rhinestone-Basic Jewels.

It's What's Inside That don't forget to add a few pretty leaves stamp in Coastal Cabana ink onto Whisper White cs.
