It’s time for the Stamp Review Crew: Tropical Chic Edition! If this is your very first visit to one of our hops, the Stamp Review Crew is a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first, third and fifth Mondays of each month. Our hops are unique because each of us features the same stamp set used in a variety of ways, giving you loads of inspiration for that set. The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog. You will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop whenever you want. This week we are featuring the Tropical Chic stamp set. If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from my good friend, Mike Funke. After visiting me, you will continue to the next stop, the talented Charlet Mallett.
Tropical Chic Thank You Card
There’s no doubt about it … Tropical Chic is one of my favorite sets from the new Annual Catalog. The coordinating paper, with its lush colors, imparts the feeling of being in a tropical rain forest. With the coordinating dies, no fussy cutting is needed. I hope you enjoy today’s card.

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
The Leaf Cut-Out Die makes creating a background as easy as a tropical breeze. I layered the Granny Apple Green panel over a simple Gray Granite dotted pattern from the Tropical Escapes Designer Series Paper pack for a quick and easy background that packs a punch.
A cluster of Blushing Bride blossoms, a Granny Apple Green leaf, and Shaded Spruce die cuts provide a striking focal point.
The simple dotted designer paper is the perfect canvas on which to stamp the sentiment, don’t you think?
I was so smitten with this set that I had to CASE one of the catalog samples for one of my On the CASE cards.
You can find the step-by step tutorial on how to create this card HERE.
