Hello, everyone! I have a fun tropical shaker square card to share with you today featuring the new Hawaiian Hibiscus layering stamps from Sunny Studio Stamps! I just love all of the gorgeous detail that you get from this set! I combined this set with some flamingos from the Tropical Paradise Stamp Set.
To create my flowers, I simply used 4 different colors to stamp each one.
- Light Pink: MFT Tickled Pink, Cotton Candy, Ripe Raspberry, and Razzle Berry
- Dark Pink: MFT Cotton Candy, Ripe Raspberry, Razzle Berry, and Hero Arts Raspberry Jam
- Purple: Altenew Rose Quartz, Puffy Heart, Purple Wine, and Cosmic Berry
- Greens: Altenew Parrot, Bamboo, and Olive
For my flamingos, I stamped them with Memento Tuexedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored with Copic Markers. I like to use a lot of different shades to blend my coloring but only a few of the ones listed would be sufficient. (Pinks: RV0000, RV00, RV02, RV04, RV06, and RV09. Legs: R12, RV55. Yellow beak: Y13, Y17, and E35. Black part of beak: W5, W7.) I then used the coordinating Tropical Paradise Dies to cut them out.
Next, I assembled the base of my card with these components. I quickly blended some Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers on a piece of scrap paper for the background of my card. I then colored some sand using some Copic Markers (E41, E42). I used the Fancy Frames Circle Dies to diecut a beautiful scalloped circle frame from pink card stock. I trimmed my card base to 5″x5″ prior to diecutting a circular hole/window in the center.
I added all of my Hibiscus flowers with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares for some added dimension and the leaves with liquid adhesive. Lastly, I heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto a strip of black card stock and then diecut it with the small oval die from the Sunny Border Dies and filled my card with some Studio Katia Majestic Mini Sequins.
I hope you enjoyed my card! Thanks so much for dropping by today and have a wonderful weekend! If you liked this card and want some more crafty inspiration, don’t forget to check out my INSTAGRAM feed!
