A Very Chic – Tropical Chic – September


Are you in love with Tropical Chic? I certainly am! These gorgeous leaves and that beautiful hibiscus are growing all around me, and I have them at my fingertips to ink in any color I like. I’ve chosen two of my favorite flower combinations to grace my September desk:

I inked up each flower and dragged the Blender pen across the center of each one. Then I dripped a little ink from an ink refill into the lid of my ink pad and used an Aquapainter to pick up the intense color and add it to the space I cleared on the stamp. I tried using daubers to add the color, but I couldn’t avoid a really round shape, and this time I was looking for something more linear.

The Tropical Chic stamps and thinlits are available in a discounted bundle. If you’ve been studying your catalogs, you’ll know that the first year stamps and dies are introduced, they’re generally sold individually as well as in the bundle. If they continue beyond that first catalog, the money-saving bundle is discontinued. Conclusion: Buy the bundle when it comes out. (I know, such rocket science.)

  1. Your calendar pages are beautiful and a great inspiration for me. I make ten calendars for Christmas gifts each year and struggle to come up with new designs. Do you make your own pages or buy them? I always dread making the pages but can never seem to find a pre-printed one that fits my 3.5 square design. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Bernadette, thanks for your kind comments. I use a template for calendars made by a colleague, and every year I make DIY kits available. I’ve been given permission to print and sell, but not to distribute the template. They’ll be available in October this year if you’re interested. Search my blog under DIY Easel calendar for more. Aloha!

  2. I love your calendar this month. This is such a beautiful stamp set. How appropriate for all lovers of tropical things. It is still hot and humid in WI. Looking forward to cooler fall weather, not interested in winter and can’t wait to return to Maui in Jan.
