Manly Fun Fold Card Details

The Tropical Oasis Suite of products can be found in the Mini Catalog on page 38-40. These “pop of paradise” patterns include lush foliage and tropical images. The double-sided designer papers allow for lots of versatility include textures that coordinate perfectly with other sheets in the package.


The Timeless Tropical stamp set is also available as a Bundle with the coordinating In the Tropics Dies. Bundles are a great value since they include both the stamp set and the dies and provide a 10% savings. Another great plus – the dies also include a fantastic pineapple and “aloha” greeting!

Fun Fold Card Idea #2

Thank you cards can be any pattern or theme and among the easiest, design-wise, to create. I’ve used the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set, Lily Pad Dies and the Lily Impressions Designer Paper. All these products are free selections during Stampin’ Up!’s largest sale of the year called “Sale-A-Bration” From now through March 31 you can redeem products in the sale brochure, with a minimum $50 product purchase.

Amazing color coordination between Stampin’ Up!’s designer papers, cardstock and ink make creating professional looking cards a breeze! I used Blackberry Bliss, Pretty Peacock and Garden Green ink pads for the images and greeting on this card.


And don’t forget the bling! A few small rhinestones add a touch of shimmer without overpowering this impressionistic designer paper.
