Tropical Escape Time! It’s summer time and nothing screams summer like the tropics!  Today, I’m sharing Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Card Ideas.

I have to create my own tropics because I live in Southern Arizona!  Basically the desert!  I love it here but I miss the beach and the tropics!

The card ideas I came up with are super easy cards using the Tropical Escape Suite that includes the Tropical Chic Stamp Set and Tropical Thinlit Dies.  You will be seeing several cards using these because I had so much fun creating them! Don’t forget too, that you save 10% when you by the Tropical Chic Bundle.
