Today I have few cards for you. The first one uses the new Toucan Do it set and dies along with the To The Point cover plate. I die cut the background from Midnight card stock and adhered to a piece of Tropical Treasures paper. Then stamped, colored and die cut the bird. Cut circle from Vellum. Stamped sentiment with Watermark ink onto Midnight card stock, embossed in white and cut to size. Assembled the card :) 



Next up is a card using the Isn't she Lovely set and dies and Be wild Set and dies. I like the effect on black, so used Midnight card stock for my background. I stamped Hello and the little sprinkles with Watermark ink, then embossed in white. Stamped and die cut flowers, leaves and the Lovely sentiment. Assembled my card and added few sequins to finish it off.



Last but not the least is a card using the Hex marks the spot set. I made colored card stock by applying ink to paper directly, then stamped the hexagons with Watermark ink, embossed in white and cut them out. Stamped sentiment from Good Vibes border set and assembled the card adding a strip from Cabana Prints pattered paper pack. Added few sequins as finishing touch.

Gorgeous! I love the bright colors. That die is the perfect backdrop for the beautiful toucan, the black background really sets off the sentiment and flowers on the second one, and I love the way you used those cool hexagons!
