Quick Card With Pop Of Paradise

By | 6 June, 2016

Stampin’ Up! has several product suites.  Each suite is designed around a theme and all the products in that suite coordinate not only in theme, but in color and style.

Today I am playing with the stamp set from one of the suites called Pop Of Pink.  The stamp set is called Pop of Paradise and it’s all about tropical paradise!

I really love this new Flirty Flamingo pink from the new In Colors for 2016-2017.  Paired with Bermuda Bay and Old Olive, it’s another combination that I find myself loving for summer.

Keep in mind, that these are not the colors of the product suite Pop Of Pink! These are one of my color combos!  The pink in the suite is actually Melon Mambo and it is black, white, melon mambo and gold.

The washi tape that I have used here is from the Affectionately Yours Product Suite.  This is really pretty tape.  The Pop of Pink Washi Tape has a roll of black with gold foil specks.  I just wanted to keep this really bright and as soon as I felt the texture of the white tape with gold foil specks, I found myself adding it to the card.  I found the texture appealing!

 

I know…crazy!  Texture is everything.  (It’s the difference between a creamy vanilla frosting and slimy yogurt.  It’s everything!)

Card Recipe:

  • Whisper White cut at 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″; cut one piece at 4 x 5-1/4″
  • Bermuda Bay cut at 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″
  • Bermuda Bay Sequins Trim
  • Affectionately Yours Washi Tape
  • Stamp Sets:  Pop Of Paradise, Guy Greetings
  • Inks:  Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay and Old Olive

 

Why a Father’s Day card with this stamp set?

Well, both my husband and I have lost our fathers so I am essentially making the card for him.  We are a few short years from retiring and we plan on retiring to Florida.  He’ll like this card.  Work and life in general has been stressful lately and we are holding on to the dream of the days we can retire together on a canal in Florida!

 

Plus, the original card that I made for Father’s Day wasn’t a card I loved.  I attempted to use the Timeless Texture stamp set along with From Land and Sea.  I love both stamp sets, but I felt like I crossed the line in sponging and texturing from fab to WOW! that is way too much.  Check out what I mean:

Father's Day

Looking at it today, I don’t dislike it as much as I did moments after making it.  The problem is that I’m limited in the patterned papers and Washi tapes that I have from the new catalog.  My order doesn’t get here until Friday and I used what I had that matched some Washi tape that is also in the new catalog.  You can see that I also used the Thoughtful Banners and the Banner Punch.  I’ve created a Two Minute Quick Tip Video for using this banner punch and stamp set.  Check it out below.

How would you change this card???  I would love to know!
