I made two cards for this blog hop. I mean, who doesn't love all things tropical?

Here's my first card

I was away at a Crafters Retreat and went shopping for some "Tropical" inspiration. I bought a sheet of patterned paper by Imaginisce, called Shell-A-Brate. I cut a 4"x4" panel and used a stamp set I purchased at Island Paperie on Maui, called Island Life B to stamp the aloha at the center of the panel. I matted the panel with cardstock, matching one of the shells on the printed paper. I felt that I didn't really "do much" for this card so I thought I'd make another.

Here's my second card

I used the same stamp set as the first card, Island Life B available at Island Paperie on Maui and a Gina K's wreath builder stencil. I stamped the palm leaf image with Hero Arts Field Green ink, eight times, as I rotated the 4"x4" card panel within the stencil. I added a hibiscus flower, stamped with Hero Arts Pale Tomato ink for a "pop" of color. I added the sentiment, stamped with Hero Arts Charcoal ink to complete the panel. I double matted the card to finish off the card.

I'm the last stop on our blog hop. Thanks for hopping with us.
