Tropical Party Stationary Set!

Living in Hawaii, you can imagine how excited I was to see the new Tropical Party stamp set and Island Oasis Designer Series Paper in the Summer Mini Catalog!!!


As soon as my order arrived, I opened up the box and started making this tropical stationary set. 



The stationary box opens up to reveal compartments for four regular size cards and envelopes, four mini note cards and envelopes, and four gift tags.  Also included in the box is a little address book, a little holder for postage stamps, and also a pen holder.

After the tour you can find detailed instructions for this project on Craft Project Central for May.  By the way, the hibiscus came from my back yard!  Aloha!!

Awash with Flowers Watercolor Card!

I love flower stamp sets!! Whenever a new one comes out, I just have to have it!  When I saw this one, I was so excited, because not only do I love flower sets, but I love 2-step stamping sets!!  So you know that I'm very happy this month with some of these beautiful sets being on sale this month!  One week left!  Don't miss out on your chance to get these sets at a discount!! 

This is the card that I made for my Sister's in Stamping blog this week!  Check it out if you want to see other samples using the Awash with Flowers set!

A couple tips if using this set in clear mount.  Use one of the bigger acrylic blocks and position all stamps on the block the way you want them to stamp, versus stamping each stamp individually!  This is one of the benefits of the clear stamps!  Also, the butterfly, isn't really a butterfly in the set.  I used one of the small flowers and then using the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker, drew in the body.  (I learned this from the talented Jane Nishiguchi!)
