Something tropical


On a trip to a fabulous crafty store in Virginia called Goldenshill Papercraft, I found these two stamps from Stampendous.  One of our gals from the group was soon moving to Florida and I thought this might make a cute card for her.  I pretty much cased the design, but not necessarily the colors from the store sample.  It is colored in a flow-y way as intended by the designer Laurel Birch. It is bright and wild.

It was way out of my comfort zone, and I may never color them again...but it was something I had to try.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. I love the Laurel Birch stamps at Stampendous, but haven't gotten any so far. Beautiful card, Cat--please color up that stamp again--the bird is darling! Wonderful idea for your friend--although I'd be re-thinking a move to Florida. Of course, I never considered living there even though it's where my grandmother spent most of her adult life.

  2. It's always fun to step away from the comfort zone on occasion, Cat... you've done it beautifully! I LOve those big blooms!!!

  3. Love Laurel Burch! This is wonderful!

  4. You should definitely step out of the CZ more often with the bold and bright colors, Cat! You ROCKED this image with your coloring!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. What a riot of fabulous tropical colour, Cat ... way to go stepping out of your comfort zone to create this bright, vibrant scene ... it's brilliant! Hugs, Anita :)

  6. Well, you've done an amazing job stepping out of your comfort zone, Cat! Your coloring is just bright and vibrant and I really love it!!!
