I just picked up the Tropical Suite from Stampin Up and I am already declaring it my all time favourite Stampin Up set. I love everything about it, from the colours to the versatility of the dies, and on to the great 6 X 6 patterned paper pack.
The other thing that is great about it, is that I was able to pair it up with images and dies from Heartfelt Creations and Sizzix. I have found that usually Heartfelt Creations does not play well with others. By this I mean that trying to pair stamps and dies from other companies, with stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations often results in failure. The card looks like a nerd dating a Kardashian…………………they just don’t go together. It worked on this card though.
Take a look:
My co-blogger is alive and well. She just continues to be the busiest woman I know. One of her many jobs is to create the Card Kit of the month for the Scrapendipity store. We have decided to post the projects here on the blog, as her spare time to cardmake just for the joy of it is pretty limited these days. At least this way, we get to see what she is up to. This card kit is available at Scrapendipity, but they always sell out, and many people just have a standing order to get the kit every month.
This month is especially cute, as it has many of the latest trends showcased. Underwater scenes, shaker cards, beaches and foxes are all trendy, so why not put them all in one card?
