Summer is definitely in full swing here and while vacation mode is still a few weeks off, I am feeling quite beachy and tropical with this new set...

TROPICAL LEAVES

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
The Tropical Leaves stamp set included the "thank you" sentiment and it also pairs well with the new release sentiment set...

LOVELY DAY SENTIMENTS

The first project I have to share with you today is a set of thank you cards.  I find myself in need of thank yous often and it's always great to have a few on hand.  These were easy to create and I love the pop of color on each...
The card bases are created from Cloud White cardstock.  I stamped leaves onto the base in Stone ink.
Each card has 2 watercolored leaves that are popped up on dimensional adhesive.  I went with a palette of green on one leaf and then chose reds and yellows for the other.
The sentiment is stamped in Midnight ink on a separate panel that is also popped up on dimensional adhesive. I added a few matte dots as a finishing touch on these cards.
. . . . .
For my second project using this fabulous new set, I team it up with the You Coordinates and Confetti Cuts die set that we released earlier this year.
For this card, I started by stamping the leaves multiple times on Cloud White cardstock and watercoloring them with Karin brushmarkers in greens and yellows.  I then traced around part of each leaf with a BV31 Copic marker to give it a slight shadow.
From there, I cut that panel with the (smaller) YOU Confetti Cuts die.  I layered it several times with cut of the YOU die cut from Cloud White cardstock. as well as the outline/base YOU which is cut from Midnight cardstock.
I also added a few matte dots to this card (they were already on my desk from the last project!).
 . . . . .
I have one more product reveal to share with you today.  It's one of 2 new Cover Panel Confetti Cuts dies. This one might be one of my favorite all time Cover Panel designs!

PEEKABOO COVER PANEL

Why is it called "Peekaboo?"  That's because the half circles can be lifted a little to reveal what is under this panel.  For this card, I chose a gorgeous shiny gold cardstock to be able to "peek" at...
The base of this card, the PEEKABOO Cover Panel and the word HOPE are all cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.
The gold cardstock is just from my stash from long ago, but I thought that it was just perfect for this card.  The HOPE Confetti Cuts and Coordinates were release previously this year.
Like the YOU card above, I layered the word HOPE several times for dimension and then added the base in gold and the ray "O" base is a thick vellum.
. . . . .
