I have found myself using quite a bit more Designer Series Paper in the last few months than I ever have.  I am not sure why, but I am loving all of the DSP in the new Annual Catalog from Stampin’ Up!.  They do know how to pick beautiful paper.  Today’s card is carrying on that trend.  I have used the Tropical Escape DSP.


Tropical Chic Bundle, 148339


Since this DSP debuted I have  used more Blushing Bride card stock than in the last several years.  Suddenly it is perfect to pair with several different colors.  Here is my color combination for today.  It came from the DSP of course.





The Granny Apple Green layer is the Bokah Dots stamp set.  I love the look of texture it gives!  For the flower, I used the Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker to color the entire flower.  I then took the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker and lightly went around the edges and the inner lines.  Mango Melody is the perfect bright color to compliment the others.  The sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade as well and punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch.  The edge is also from the Poppy Parade marker.  I simple ran the side of the brush tip around the edge of the cut out.  Easy Peasy!  Having the matching Framelits for this stamp set makes this a very quick card.  I love that….



  • Base Card of Blushing Bride is 4 1/4 X 11
  • Shaded Spruce layer is 5 1/4 X 4
  • DSP layer is 5 3/8 X 3 7/8
  • Blushing Bride small layer is 3 5/8 X 2 1/2
  • Bokah Dots layer is 3 1/2 X 2 3/8
