It’s time to share my first project created with the amazing Escape to Paradise collection. If you can picture vintage Miami deco retro….that would be this collection. So much fun! And the bright cheery color scheme is really winning me over. I created two very different cards just to show the versatility of the patterns.
This card was such fun to create. I don’t know why I don’t work with yellow more often. I guess because I need more pineapples in my craft stash lol.
I created a double layer of matting with the Double Dot Cardstock and I think it really helps the colors pop.
There’s a tag tucked into the layers and a die cut doily. On top I added some thickers for a bit of unexpected sparkle. I used the giant sticker from the combo sticker sheet to act as a base for all the layers.
Even though this cut apart has 3 pineapples already printed on it I added the one from the Layered Stickers too because I liked the sentiment and the bling. A simple bow with a few flowers was all this card need to be finished off perfectly.
For my second card, I wanted to create some of the embellishments with the new BoBunny Stamps and the Vicki Boutin Color Wheel ink pad. The doodly flowers work so well with this collection! They are stamped onto the patterned paper then after drying given a bit of detail with the Sugar Glitter Paste. Leaving a small border around the outside when cutting them out gives these made by me flowers a purchased embellishment quality.
So. Many. Layers. I mean can you ever have too many layers of gorgeous BoBunny papers? I think not!
I’m really loving those stamped flowers and they were super easy to tuck into the layers. I’ve topped them off with a few additional made by me flowers and one from the layered sticker sheet.
The Mandala doily is one of my favorite dies as it’s got a simple and not too intricate shape. Of course I added a poofy bow. This one is topped off with a second bow of loopy twine and a Double Dot Brad. The tags in the back come from the Noteworthy collection and were finished with a simple eyelet and twine pulled through.
The Double Dot Jelwels coordinate perfectly with the Layered Sticker banner. How did I get this far without mentioning the flamingos? This may actually be my very first flamingo project. I’m trying to recall but I can’t think of one.
Even though these cards come from the same collection they are very uniquely different. I love them both!
