Sunshine and Tropical Greetings

Sunshine and Tropical Greetings on a warm and sunny Melbourne day!

Hope you are having a happy weekend whatever you may be doing. I know there are times I just want to relax and at other times I feel so accomplished when I get lots done on the weekend. This one’s a working weekend as I prepare for a destash market next weekend. So I am getting organized, decluttering and oh, it feels good.

I’ve got another card with the Tropical Oasis bundle and the Memories & More card pack that is part of the Tropical Oasis Suite. The larger cards are a bit too big for our card bases so I just cut them down to 9.9cm x 14.2cm. The left over is great for decorating the inside of your card. 

The flowers were stamped in Saddle Brown ink on Fluid 100 watercolour cardstock. Then I coloured them with Real Red and Daffodil Delight Watercolour pencils. For the leaves I used Old Olive and a touch of Daffodil Delight. 

The sentiment is from one of the sticker sheets in the Memories & More card pack and I mounted it with Dimensionals onto the Scallop circle.

A Quick Way to Add Colour to Stamped Images

I’m loving the Tropical Oasis suite and have been creating cards using different techniques. This card uses a simple layout with a few colours to create a friendship card.

This card was really quick to make using a very easy colouring technique to add some colour to the palm tree. 

How to easily add colour to stamps, Tropical Oasis stamp set

I used Stampin’ Write Markers to colour directly onto the rubber of the stamp. I love these markers as they come in every colour in our ink pad range, there is a pen and brush side so you have more control over your colouring and being water based the stamps clean up easily after use. 

Once the image is coloured with the Markers, just ‘huff’ on the stamp and the breath will activate the ink. Stamp as normal on your cardstock. This is a fun and quick way to add colour to your images. I even added shading to my leaves with 2 colours. The sentiment has been stamped on a bit of scrap Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card I had leftover.
