Tropical Party Vintage Sneak Peek

When I first opened the new Summer Mini Catalog, I knew the Tropical Party stamp set would soon belong to my little stamp collection LOL!!

The new Summer Mini Catalog is AWESOME!   The samples in the Summer Mini Catalog are delightful too… If you have not received yours in the mail, I’d love to mail it to you!!

Today’s card share uses all but one of the images from the Tropical Party Stamp Set, the large En Francais background stamp, and images from the Flores Suaves stamp set too!  Kind of a vintage collage of texture and images.


So.. what do you think?  Don’t you just love the new Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder?  I sponged it lightly with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to give it a little more depth.  (YES!!! Champagne Shimmer Paint is still available to order #116806) .  If you brayer the embossing folder with Riding Hood Red Classic Ink, it looks just like a red & white picnic table cloth too… LOL!!

Boy. What happens when I try to leave comments????
They seem to end up in cyberspace. I will try again. I thought I was excited before but the chance of winning your "extreme" card has me pumped up. It got me playing with my brayer again! And about the Tropical set: I thought I didn't need it but now I just may! Hope you are happy! I am.
