Introducing…Large Background Tropical Paradise

Introducing…Large Background Tropical Paradise


Welcome to Day 2 of the July 2019 Release product introductions. This is the fun part where myself, my guest designer and the design team get to show you LOTS of inspiration, using all the new products leading up to  26th, July, Release Day!

Hopefully you have hopped on over from our lovely Guest Designer Keren’s blog HERE. If you missed the start of the hop and introduction to todays products, you can catch up HERE.

Today’s product is one new clear stamp set you might recognise. I recently designed it as part of a digital stamp collection for Simply Cards & Papercrafts Magazine HERE. As soon as I had designed it as a digital stamp I knew it HAD to be a physical stamp too! What better time than Summer (in the Northern Hemisphere) is there to be inspired and use this stamp?!

As much as this stamp looks fabulous in traditional tropical greens, it also looks awesome coloured rainbow style and paired with Bob the Toucan from Paradise clear stamp set…


I stamped the Large Background Tropical Paradise with Catherine Pooler Midnight ink. I then used Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blends in a rainbow of colours to colour the leaves. Bob the Toucan is also stamped with Midnight ink and I simply coloured his beak and fussy cut him out.



Now I couldn’t let the other strip of the Tropical Paradise that I’d coloured go to waste, so I put it to use on this next card…


This time I paired it with the ‘Have a Perfect Day’ sentiment from Sentiments Outlined which we introduced yesterday. I also added a couple of stamped leaves from Paradise Leaves and the solid Hibiscus flower from Paradise.


I coloured the sentiment with a dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend and it is hard to see in the photo, but I added some clear Wink of Stella to the Hibiscus flower.

Lastly I wanted to heat emboss the Large Background Tropical Paradise and I have also paired it with a stamp set we will be introducing on Thursday…


I used WOW! Jealous Guy embossing powder for the background, it is a lovely lime green. The sentiment is from a new clear stamp set called Wild and I have stamped the main bold ‘Wild’ from the set, coloured it with a fine liner, fussy cut the letters and adhered them to the card using foam adhesive. I’ve also added Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to the ‘Wild’ sentiment.


The smaller ‘About You’ is heat embossed with WOW! Opaque Bright White EP and I can’t wait to share more of this set on Thursday!

That’s all the samples I have to share with you today, but it wouldn’t be a release without a daily blog hop full of inspiration! 

As usual my AWESOME Design Team and wonderful Guest Designer this month, Keren Baker have worked their magic with todays products, so be sure to hop along & see them. This is the order of the hop…

That was a phenomenal inspirational hop, so many creative ways to use the Large Background Tropical Paradise and lots of fresh new inky ways to use the previously released Paradise and Paradise Leaves paired with it! I hope you enjoyed it and you will join us again tomorrow for another product introduction and LOTS more inspiration 🙂

    Loving this new background stamp Bev, you can use it in so many different ways. The rainbow coloured ones look equally fab. 🙂

    Great showcase of the stamp! I like the way you have used a partial background as well as the full background in that gorgeous green embossing powder. x

    A trio of fabulous showcases, Bev, that really amplify how wonderfully this stamp plays with others in the Paradise – and beyond – collections! Bob looks especially happy, sitting amongst the pretty leaves….

    The idea of colourful leaves opens so many new possibilities! Hadn’t tought of this yet – but it conveys a great jungle-feeling!

    Love the unusual colour combos you’ve used – not expected but they work perfectly! I do like the idea with the strip acting as a background for your focal images of Bob and the hibiscus! x
