Hi folks! Welcome to day four of the July Papertrey Ink countdown.
Today I'd like to share a couple more Tropics samples with you. Also, this collection is featured on the Papertrey ink blog today as well. So stop by and check it out for all the details.
Tropics is a unique collection of tropical palms and tribal designs. It can be adapted for summertime projects, masculine creations, backgrounds, focal points, borders and so much more.  My first card focuses on one of the palms, which I've used to create a hand stamped repeating pattern in the New Leaf color.
Available in the Tropics collection is a set of dies that coordinates with the sentiment included in the set.  Here I've mounted a "hello" on two banners, which help to ground the phrase. 
A tribal design square is also included in the stamp set, I've used it here to create rows of color to frame the sentiment. Color combo... New Leaf, Ocean Tides, and Enchanted Evening. 
It's super easy to work with! I just rotated it as I stamped each row, giving this pattern a bit of interest. 

Well, there's a quick look at the Tropics stamp set and dies. Just remember... all that you've seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning July 15th

Now, be sure to visit the Papertrey Ink blog for more details on these new product.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
