Ink to Paper June Release Countdown Day 4

Well friends, it's the 4th and final day of the Ink to Paper June release countdown! I've got two cards to share with you today and then everything will be available for purchase starting on the 15th at 10 PM ET. 
This card features the new Love to Layer: Scalloped Circle dies (which are must-haves in my book) and the new To Die For Sentiments: Brighten My Life. Of course I couldn't resist using the Border Bling Postage Frames again! I actually created this background exactly like one of my bird cards from yesterday.

I die cut the sentiment 3 times from white cardstock and once from gold glitter specialty cardstock and glued them all together using liquid glue. I love a nice stacked piece like this! I layered it onto some Bitty Big: Hawaiian Shores pattern paper that was die cut using a circle die. I also stamped the "My Dear Friend" sentiment in black for additional detail.

I layered the circle onto the largest of the Love to Layer Scalloped Circle dies using foam squares. I tucked a glittery Sunray behind the circle using liquid glue.

The finishing touch is a few yellow flowers from the Birthday Bouquet stamp set with some sparkling clear sequins placed here and there!
My final card for today and for the release is a shaker card using the new Border Bling: Tribal frames die! I wanted to create something sunny, bright and tropical to enhance the tribal feel!

I haven't made a shaker card in a while, so I thought it would be fun for this design! To begin, I die cut the frame from Kraft cardstock and then added some Cocoa Bean ink around the edges. I also created an ink blended background using Distress Oxide inks and adhered that onto a top folding A2 card base. I adhered a piece of acetate to the backside of the frame using Scortape and then added the foam strips and sequins to create the shaker!

Once the shaker portion was done, I got to work adding the Flourishing Florals images that were showcased a few days ago. I added these to the frame using foam squares. The die cut sentiment is from the new To Die For Sentiments: Bright Days and is die cut twice and glued together.
The "my dear friend" sentiment, which is from the new Dear Friend stamp set, is heat embossed in white onto a black piece of cardstock and then die cut. The finishing touch is some black ink splatter and some sequins! Don't forget, everything will be available for purchase at 10 pm ET on June 15th! Thanks for fluttering by!
