Tropical Chic meets Swirly Frames

This week I’ve made a card which uses two challenges for it’s inspiration. Caseing the Catty #CTC190 Artistic Impressions section on pages 127-141 of the Annual Catalogue and Freshly Made Sketches FMS348 sketch.

I decided to combine two great new stamp sets from the Annual Catalogue, Tropical Chic & Swirly Frames. Here is what I came up with.

I started with a Bermuda Bay card base and ran the front half of the card through the big shot in the Subtle Embossing Folder.  A mat of Granny Apple Green and another mat of Coastal Cabana.  On the Coastal Cabana layer I stamped the four square images from Swirly Frames stamp set in Bermuda Bay using the Stamparatus™ so I could line them up and the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Hand Delivered stamp set.

I then stamped the leaf images from Tropical Chic stamp set in Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana & Bermuda Bay onto Whisper White card stock and then cut each image with one of the Layering Squares Framelits.

There is still some time to join in with these challenges, so why not give them a go.

Until next time, happy stamping
