Trim a white die cut from Raindrops on Roses die cut and adhere from the back of oval panel as shown. I have used ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink Pad - Berrylicious and Guacamole. For pollens, I have used Memento Dye Ink Pad Cantaloupe. Leaves are painted using Archival Leaf green and Olive Green. Tie a small bouquet of dogwoods on the dry twigs to form a spray and adhere it using hot glue.

Instructions: My card size is 6" X 6". Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection. Next I stamped the palm tree and colored the fronds with Memento ink. I cut these fronds and used as leaves to go behind my flowers. Next I stamped, cut out and colored the flower petals. I then shaped the stamen and added glue then dipped them into the pollen. Set them aside to dry. I sprayed the back of the flowers with water and then shaped them and set them aside to dry. Once dry I glued the stamen into the middle of the petals and then added the glitter to the edges. Decide on the placement of the flowers and fronds and hot glue them down onto the front of the card. Now go back to the paper collection and pick a coordinating piece of paper and stamp the sentiment on it. Cut this out and add dimensional tape to the back to pop it up a bit and adhere it. Your card is finished!

Instructions: Cut heavy white card-stock to measure 11" x 4 1/4" and score at 5 1/2" to create a top-fold card. (Tip: When you score - fold away from the embossed line (valley) to prevent the card-stock from cracking. Avoid folding toward the mountain.) Cut green card-stock at 5 1/4" x 4". Select the designer paper from Monkeying Around Paper Collection. Cut the designer paper at 5" x 3 3/4". Adhere the base layer and designer paper to the card base.

Stamp the monkey stamp set from  Monkey Antics on X-Press It Blending Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Dye. Color the monkeys using Copic Alcohol Ink Markers - E000, E40, E41, E44, E49, E74 and R20. Make sure to add your shadows and highlights at this stage. Add texture to the monkeys by applying 70% alcohol to a scrap of terry cloth. Pull the little terry cloth fibers out so they will make a great impression. Apply the cloth to the fur for 4 seconds and then lift. Repeat process on the next section of fur. The image will begin to show texture as it dries. Avoid getting impatient and going over the area again until it is completely dry. You will find that it becomes very light and your texture shows when it dries. The image can be cut with the corresponding Die - Monkey Antics Die.

Stamp the leaves - large and small multiple times using the Monkeying Around Cling Stamp set. I used two of each size for my card. Color the leaves with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers - G28, G40, YG61, YG63. Cut the leaves using the corresponding Monkeying Around Die Set.

Adhere the leaves behind the monkey using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive. The focal image was popped up with dimensional dots.

Stamp and die cut 2 large palms, and 3 small palms. I added colour to 1 large and 1 small using ink and daubers. The other 3 palms I used Chameleon pens for a brighter look. Stamp and die cut 2 of the flower chains, and added colour using markers. One of the flower chains I cut apart into single flowers.

I like the half label element used on Dove Happy Easter Card by Debbie Seyer. It looks very contemporary and easy for us viewers to duplicate. Pink Dogwood Easter Card by Rajni Chawla is very creative and unique using distress paper idea. Can't wait for the Tropical Paradise Collection release! Great for Hawaii vacation albums with beautiful Aloha sentiment die - love it!
