Rest & Relax

With all my Christmas cards done and in the mail, I had the chance to play with a new Timeless Tropical stamp and die set.  It's a new set coming out next month and I have to say I love it.  I'm looking forward to making a whole lot of these pretty flowers.

The challenge at The Flower Challenge is to use a die and I actually used several from this set.  The background is made from die-cuts.  I even used the pineapple top in the background behind the flower.  I was actually just playing around and thought it looked pretty so made it into a card.  I know just the person who needs this.

Stamp(s):  Timeless Tropical (Stampin' Up!)
Ink(s):  Jet Black (Altenew)
Watercolor Pencils:  Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight (Stampin' Up!)
Cardstock:  Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Old Olive, Whisper White (Stampin' Up!); Mixed Media Paper (Strathmore)
Dies:  In The Tropics Dies (Stampin' Up!)
Other:  Icy Sparkle Crystals (Studio Katia)

This is such a pretty flower that I plan to make many more in a whole lot of colors.  I think I'm going to go with blue for the next one.

I'm playing along with The Flower Challenge.  For all the challenge details, click the image below.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. Marsha this is a beautiful card. Love all the die cuts, the small pieces so compliment the larger flower. Well done.
