Welcome to an exciting Color Fusers Blog Hop where we are featuring the new 2024-2026 In Colors and I chose my favorite summer stamp and die set, Beach Day!

New In Colors were the perfect color combo for this tropical card, and I absolutely love it! Some of the details won’t come through as well in photos, but the watercoloring, Wink of Stella, and color combo are just fun. And I kept it simple, so the colors could just pop!

The Beach Day Stamp Set and Beach Day Dies are really fun for creating all things water scene. Although the surf boards didn’t make it onto today’s project, they are absolutely adorable! And these palm trees could not be cuter!

#162799 Beach Day Die Set

I used two different coloring techniques with Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper to bring color onto the background. The first was splattering Peach Pie ink, then adding water to blend, to create an area of sunshine. A second technique is picking up ink with the large Water Painter, then adding water to apply to your background. This works great for larger areas of color. On this card, I topped off the coloring with Wink of Stella for a little extra pizazz.

The new In Colors include two greens that pair together perfectly, and set the main colors on today’s card. I used Summer Splash for the card base, and background papers, and Shy Shamrock for the Palm leaves.

And speaking of background papers, isn’t this background paper pattern beautiful? Each catalog brings four new patterns to our 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Color Family packs, and this is my favorite pattern for this year!
