August 2023 Stamps, Dies, Stencils, & More Release

You are invited to immerse yourself in a world of tropical bliss and enchantment! This release features designs that will transport you to idyllic destinations where serene beaches meet lush rainforests and vibrant flowers bloom in abundance. This summery collection will surely have a special place on your paper crafting projects. We can't wait to see what you create!

Today, I'll be playing with some of the new products in our latest release and creating a pearl-fectly punny card.

20230703 121245 1I started by masking off 3/4″ around each side of a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. I then added a beach scene inside the masked-off area using Caribbean Life Stencil Set. I used Dew Drops, Aqualicious, and Teal Cave Inks from the Sweet Dreams Fresh Dye Ink Bundle for the sea and sky and Sand Dunes and Rocky Shore Inks from the Coffee Break Crisp Dye Ink Bundle for the sand.

For the fun little pearl shell focal, I used Caribbean Dreams Die Set. I cut the pieces using Sand Dunes and Rocky Shore Cardstocks from Gradient Cardstock Set – Coffee Break before adding an enamel dot in place of the pearl die-cut.

20230703 121248 1The ‘YOU' sentiment was created by cutting Zero-Waste Fun Little Flowers Die from a piece of white cardstock with Double Sided Adhesive on the back. I then added this piece to Vellum before die cutting again using Caps Bold Alpha Die Set. The other part of the sentiment was created by masking off parts from the You Are Everything Stamp Set. I just love how the sentiment came out! You are pearl-fect !!!

My favorites were everything that had something to do with those lovely lemons. The stencils (especially the Citrus Fruit Pattern) was a real favorite. I’ve just purchased a set of blending brushes and now feel I’m ready to start stenciling. What a great release. Bring on the zest, y’all.

I’m so torn! I want everything! I chose the Caribbean Dreams / Life (die/stencil) items for now, but the Lovely Lemons are beckoning. Thanks for the chance to win!
