Life is Grand!

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope your week is starting out great! I have a card to enter into a few challenges today :)
The theme of this card is travel/relaxing vacation. Nothing says relaxing to me like a tropical drink by the ocean! I love this Tiki hut from Luau. The one thing I don't like about the lite carts is the lack of layers. This one had two: the hut and the roof. I didn't want the tiki mask or drink to be the same color so I cut it three times to get the different colors. I used a hole punch for the round balls on the front. The flower is from Flower Shoppe, which I LOVE! All of the flowers on this cart are so beautiful! I will definitely use this one often. I used a K Andrew Designs stamp from her Positive Thoughts set. $1 from each set benefits Storefront Shelter (Homeless shelter for children and youth). Click HERE to purchase your own set of these awesome stamps!

Recipe:
  • K Andrew Positive Thoughts Stamp Set - Life is Grand
  • K & Company Paper
  • Luau - Tiki hut at 3 1/1"
  • Create a Critter - Palm tree at 4 1/2"
  • Flower Shoppe - tropical flower and leaves
  • Distressed Lines Embossing Folder - hut roof
  • Tim Holtz Wood Grain Embossing Folder - tree trunk
  • Damask Embossing Folder - palm leaves
  • Colorbok Chalk - leaves and edge of flowers
  • Foam Tape
I am entering it into the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great evening :)

Karen H said...

My sweet crafty friend, I love this card! You fit in so much tropical gorgeousness in one teeny card.. which is so impressive. I'm in love with that flower and of course the colorful tiki hut! It looks amazing... and I'm suddenly very thirsty and want to hop on a plane. I always love your palm trees, which you always emboss so beautifully. I love the sparkly mat, too! It adds such a Carribean water essence. The papers are so lovely. You are a scene-setting master, my friend. :o) (And I love the dimension!)

Hugs and blessings!
