I was supposed to go to a Stampin’ at the Beach Retreat this past week-end in North Carolina. But due to the COVID-19 Virus, the retreat wasn’t cancelled, but it was changed and everything was all online…Facebook live presentations, Zoom Room chats….and we even played virtual Bingo! Instead of everyone being together, we were all in our homes at our crafting tables and desks and just having a fun time! It was fun, but exhausting because I didn’t want to stop because I thought I might miss something! Over the week-end I made 37 cards and a Sampler. Today I am sharing just one of those cards:
Since it was a “beach themed” week-end, there was plenty of Tropical Oasis cards. I’ve had a 1/4” package of that paper since January and I haven’t even touched it until this past week-end. It wasn’t a favorite, so I didn’t purchase the stamp sets or dies for myself….I just had the paper which was leftover from a Paper Share. But after seeing some cards I was inspired. The paper is very fun….from flamingoes, to old station wagons, to tropical flowers and trees, this paper has all the “beach vacation” vibes.
The stamp set I used is called Tags in Bloom and is part of the Sale-A-Bration 3rd Release brochure of FREE items that you can receive for placing an order of $50.00 (or $100.00) depending on the free item you choose.
The stamp set has a lots sentiments that are good for many occasion, including the one I used which is very useful when there is a pandemic across the globe and you are being “socially distant” and not be seeing all the usual faces every day. This stamp set also coordinates with the Label Me Lovely Punch that is in the 2020 Mini Catalog.

- Tags in Bloom Stamp Set
- Label Me Lovely Punch
- Basket Weave Embossing Folder
- Mint Macaron Cardstock – Cut 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” ; score and fold at 4 1/4”

Nice card! Is that basketweave a paper or is it embossed paper? I like the look
Hi Sharon! The cardstock is embossed with the Basket Weave embossing folder. I love the look of embossed paper…and it’s so easy to do!
