Are you ready for summer?
I know I am! This is Kara and after a long cold winter in the northeast I've been dreaming of somewhere warm, sunny, and full of color; somewhere like South Beach, Miami. It's no wonder Dawn chose this vibrant city as the inspiration for WPlus9's new Pure Color Dye Ink Collection!

With names like Mojito, Miami Spice, and Flamingo, they really had me inspired.
The colors are vivid and eye-catching! If you love the Original 10 Collection you are going to love these too. They have the same great properties that we love about the original inks, for example, the awesome coverage! Each of these die cut letters has been colored with the new ink using a finger dauber.
I used images from the Dockside stamp set to represent the letter in the word or the object that the word spells out.
Several of the teacher's that I work with are retiring at the end of this school year. I made this card for one of them. I think it's a fun and funny sentiment for retirement.
It's like they are jumping ship and leaving us high and dry. 'S.O.S! Man Overboard', get it? ;)
You can't think of Miami without picturing a sunset. The colors in this collection make a beautiful one. I created a mask for the sun by die cutting a circle and then trimming off the bottom slightly. Then I swiped the ink pads directly onto the card stock. With a finger dauber, I added just a bit of color to the masked circle so it wasn't a stark white. To create silhouettes, I stamped some leaves from Spring Blooms and images from Dockside in black ink. To finish it off, I sprayed the whole thing with shimmer mist to capture the feeling of scintillation.
I chose a sentiment from Heartfelt Mix that reflects the feeling you get from a little R&R, refreshed and renewed. OK, now I need a vacation! Thanks for stopping by.
In the days ahead Dawn, The Design Team, and I will be sharing more South Beach inspiration.
