Orangey Card Trio

Hi folks! Welcome to day four of the April Papertrey Ink countdown.
I've got a fun little orangey trio to share with you all!  Each one using an assortment of the new goodies I've designed for this months release...
Up first, Super Succulents stamp set and coordinating die.  I stamped a row of mix and matched potted plant on top of a kraft cardstock strip. Using a color combo of Fine Linen, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Simply Chartreuse, and Ripe Avocado. Just a note... I used the masking technique to add the shorter bits of string of pearl succulents to the smaller pots. 
The sentiment was stamped in true black.  For a bit of pop and dimension I attached an additional black "happy" die cut directly on top of the stamped one. The word dies perfectly match words included in a few of the Super Succulent sentiments from the stamp set.  It's a super convenient way to add a little something special to your projects. 
Here's another look at Splits: Get Well Soon
I stamped the frame on either side of this colorful opening in True Black.  A strip of pattern paper from the Super Succulents paper pad adds the perfect pop.
Last but not least... Shaped Sayings: Father's Day die.  I borrowed this layout from a card I made last month, here
It's a super easy layout that lets you get good use from your pattern papers (I used the Super Succulents collection here) and any of the dies from Shaped Sayings collection.

Well, there's a quick look at the Super Succulents collection and the Splits: Get Well Soon set. Just remember... all that you've seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning April 15th
