Tropical Party

 I am just loving this stamp set!!  I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that I lived in Hawaii for 6 years??  I used a mini frame and decorated it with images cut from the stamp set.  I used the textured plate on the coconut...this was an idea that I saw an upline, Faith Clark, use on one of her cards.  

The stamp set is Tropical Party # 118515 (wood) $17.95 or #120081 (clear) $13.95 from the Stampin' Up! summer mini catalog.  Contact me if you would like to order this set or place a Stampin' Up order.

Card Share

This is a card that Melissa Ellis made at a recent card swap.  I just love how this came out!  I had to share since it is using the Tropical Party stamp set and I am using that set on my Hawaiian Luau Stamp Camp.  Didn't she do a wonderful job??
