There are FOUR new stamp sets and TWO new dies that you'll see when visiting each of the Baker's Dozen today!  I am featuring the A Day in Paradise set along with the new Palm Tree Die that coordinates with the Hangin' Out At the Beach set.  I'm also using the new Wave Border Die!

My first project features the A Day in Paradise set along with the Wave Border Die.  A Day in Paradise is a full sized set including a combination of 21 solid and open line images and coordinating sentiments.  It was illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes Line.  It's a perfect set for summer cards and scrapbook pages as well as retirement and just plain relaxation with its sophisticated Cape Cod theme. 

I used the sailboat image for my card.  I love the solid images in the set for those days when I don't have time to color and need a quick card.  I stamped the sailboat, cut it out and attached it to the card with foam adhesive. . .super quick and easy!  The papers are from the Splash Collection from Echo Park.  I die cut the waves with the Wave Border Die and added that in front of the sailboat on foam dimensional adhesive. 

My second card features the Palm Tree Die that coordinates with the previously released Hangin' Out At the Beach set.  I stamped the waves from the set onto some Bazzill cardstock and then added some paper from the Splash Collection for the "sky" and some Kraft cardstock for the "sand".  I colored and die cut the palm tree using the Palm Tree Die and attached it to the card.  I also added some jute and stitching to go with the distressed look and feel of the card.
