As I am typing this up it is snowing here again. Haha I could use some sun and sand to dip my toes into right now! I had a lot of fun creating this card. I tried a few fun different things on this too. Sorry about the lighting it's been overcast here so I had a hard time getting a good lighted pictures. I decided to pair this background with the Paradise Palms Cling Stamp Set.
Paradise Palm Bundle
A relaxing island getaway is always within reach when you craft with this Paradise Palms Stamp Set. Put on your favorite tropical tunes and escape to the fun of some sun, sand, palm trees, and coconuts. You can use these stamps to set the scene in so many ways: stamp a single palm tree ripe with coconuts just basking in the warm sunshine or several palm trees together for a coconut grove—you can't go wrong! It's the perfect set for card making with all-occasion sentiments that convey only the warmest of wishes.

* 13 cling stamps
* Suggested clear blocks (sold separately): b, c, d, h
Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:
Card Base:
  • Cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock 5 1/2 x 11 with the Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer score with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool at 5 1/2,  fold on scored line and press down with the Bone Folder creating a card base.
  • Cut a piece of Pool Party card stock 4 x 5 1/4. Ink the Gentle Waves Background stamp in Balmy Blue and stamp onto the card stock. Use the Paper Snips to distress the edges.
  • Cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock 1 1/4 x 4". Rip the one edge in waves. Ink the stamp from Paradise Palms Cling Stamp Set item # 157719 in Crumb Cake and repeat stamping onto the Crumb Cake card stock. Sponge Crumb Cake Ink onto the ripped edge of the Crumb Cake card stock. Adhere across the bottom of the Pool Party card stock.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White card stock 3 1/4 x 4 1/2. Ink the palms as directed in the Quick Shot Tip and stamp onto the Basic White card stock. Ink the trunks in Early Espresso and stamp onto the Basic White card stock.

Quick Shot Tip - Tap the palm top in Pear Pizzazz ink then lightly tap around the edges in Old Olive to create a two- tone effect.

  • Ink the trunks again in Early Espresso and stamp onto a piece of scrap card stock. Cut out the trunks and place over the top of the trunks creating a mask.
  • Ink the grass just like the palm tops and stamp onto the Basic White card stock, repeat until you have stamped across the bottom. Remove the mask and your trunks will not be covered in grass.
  • Ink the circle image in Mango Melody and stamp onto the top right corner. Clean the stamp, ink in Crushed Curry and stamp off to the side of the sun giving it a haze look. Adhere the Basic White card stock with Stampin' Dimensionals to the Soft Sky card stock. Wrap some Baker's Twine around the layers and adhere to the Crumb Cake card base.
  • Cut a piece of Gold 3/8 Fine Art Ribbon. Adhere with Glue Dots
  • Ink the greeting in Early Espresso and stamp onto a piece of Basic White card stock, zip through the Mini Stampin' Cut Emboss Machine. Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals. Cut a few pieces of Baker's Twine and create a bow. For a finishing touch add some Genial Gems.
