DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #289-Tropical Chic #2


Hi Stampers,

Welcome back for another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. When I started challenging myself to create a week's worth of cards and/or 3D items focusing on one stamp set, I really surprised myself. I honestly didn't know if I could do or not. But, with Tropical Chic being the third stamp set I'm on and this is the second week for that!!! I hope you are not getting sick bored of seeing the same stamp set for 2 weeks. It is making me so happy that I am getting ink all over instead of dust. I will finish out this week with Tropical Chic. So, keeping with MY challenge here is today's card.



I am just loving the new color Granny Apple Green!!! Great color!!!


It's A Jungle In Here!!!

Hi Stampers,

I have had today's card rolling around in my head for some time. I think it would make a cute card for Halloween with a twist. I'm happy with the results but for some reason my clear embossing powder is showing up with white flecks in it in EVERY single pic I took. Sigh......I hope you like it.




I love the Make A Difference Alphabet stamp set. It's great to be able to spell any sentiment. Make sure you add it with the Tropical Chic to your shopping cart today!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!


Tropical Chic All White

Hi Stampers,

Today's card I chose to stamp in VersaMark with white embossing powder. I just love the simplicity of it. No ribbon, no embellishments. What do ya think?


Sometimes less is more!!!

This is  a great stamp set!!! Make sure you order today using the Hostess Code: 2TUES96T. If you order is $30 or more you get the summer lantern pdf FREE!!!

Tropical Chic Clear Embossing Card

Hi Stampers,

Today's card features the Tropical Chic stamp set (surprised?). This time I used clear embossing powder for the leaves on the black.  I am really loving the new colors Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green. Don't get me wrong, as I do like the colors in the Tropical Chic DSP, I choose to use BRIGHT colors for a tropical card. For some reason in all my pics, it looks like there are white flecks in my clear embossing powder. Maybe it is the lighting or an optical illusion.

Tropical Chic We Make a Great Pair

Hi Stampers,

I was surfing the internet and Pinterest for ideas for today's card. I found a card I wanted to case from my upline, Dawn Olchefske.


I just turned the card to landscape and made it my own with different stamp sets and colors. Where do you find your inspiration? Do you have a go-to layout? I would love to hear your ideas!!!

I decided to make my own background stamped cardstock like Dawn's card. I also masked off the "pineapple" (pine cone from Christmas Pines) and used the "evergreen" for the pineapple topper. I like how I was able to use a Christmas stamp set for a tropical card!!!  Who knew? I also used the sentiment from Animal Outing. I even remembered to stamp the inside AND the envelope. Boy, I was on a roll!!!




I hope I was able to INSPIRE you in some way!!!
