Product of the Week–Tropical Chic

I’ve been in a tropical state of mind this week having fun playing with the Tropical Chic stamp set and framelits bundle.

I made this card for my OnStage swap coming up in April. It uses a simple fancy fold which can be created by scoring a 4-1/2″x 11″ piece of Blushing Bride cardstock at 4-1/4″ and 5-1/2″. Adhere the left 1-1/4″ section down to leave a 4-1/4″x 4-1/4″ square opening.

To create the variegated green on the large leaf, I first inked up the image with Granny Apple Green ink then used a Sponge Dauber to lightly tap Garden Green ink along the edges.

I saw this cute pillow box treat holder in the Quarter 2, 2019 Stampin’ Success magazine, and just had to case it. I switched out the Granny Apple Green 1/2″ ribbon for 3/8″ Metallic Edge ribbon I colored with a Granny Apple Green Light Stampin’ Blend. 

The Melon Mambo tag was heat embossed with White embossing powder.

These cute mini Toblerone treat holders are for my customers as a small Thank You for their order. I cased the idea from Julie DiMatteo at The Paper Pixie. You can see the instructions on her blog here
We’ll be making these adorable spring baskets at our team meeting next week. See below for instructions on how to make this super quick and easy basket. This idea came from my Stampin’ Up! upline Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs and her friend Ronda Wade of Create with Ronda.
Start with a 6″x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper. Score at 2″ and 4″ on one side, then rotate 90 degrees and score again at 2″ and 4″.
Cut up to score lines on opposite sides to create your basket sides.

Fold up the bottom flap and bring side flaps to a point where they meet. Adhere with Multi-Purpose Glue or Tear Tape and decorate. Adhere ribbon or cardstock with Mini Glue Dots or Tear Tape for the handle. Like I said, super easy peasy project!
