TGCDT February 2020 Blog Hop - Enjoying A Tropical Moment with The Tropical Oasis Suite

Christmas Luminaries

Buried in the snow?  Suffering crazy freezing temps?  How about treating yourself to a tropical moment...   Welcome to the February Blog Hop. The Gentlemen Crafters Design Team is a group of male independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the globe, and we share what we love every 2nd Friday of the month. Make sure you check out the rest of the Design Team’s creative projects from the photo links at the end of this post.

This month I am sharing the Tropical Oasis suite of products from the Jan-June Mini Catalogue with you.  Together we will make three cards of varying skill level.  One will use only the stamp set, one only DSP, and the other stamps, DSP, dies, and the embossing folder.  So, grab some paper, ink and stamps and join me.
