There's nothing but tropicool vibes in this collection! Lynda Kanase brings us a brand-new collection that is available now at local craft stores, so you can get a taste of the rainforest just around the corner. This versatile collection hits all the big trends this year: party decor, tropical, watercolor, mixed media, and more! Join us on this tour of toucans, flamingos, and luscious greens as we explore this collection together.

Interactive Cards

If you still haven't heard of one of our favorite dies from this collection, we have two questions for you. First of all, where have you been? Secondly, are you ready to be absolutely dazzled? This Tropicool Slider Card Framelits Die Set is interactive and unique. Pull the tab to reveal addition sentiments that can be customized for any occasion, as shown below.

Dimensional Cards

Add texture and dimension to your cards with these two new die sets! Lynda's Bird of Paradise Framelits Die Set (pictured left) can be 2-D or 3-D, depending on your crafting needs. You might want to opt with the 3-D option though, because it seems that the textured and dimensional trend that's been sweeping crafting is staying for 2018 (and we're glad that it is!).

Lynda also included a Tropicool Leaves Card Front Thinlits Die Set, keeping your cards hidden behind a beautiful screen of foliage. It also comes with a card band that fits perfectly with the die set, so that everything stays in-tact and you don't have to worry about loose cards. (You can also think of this card holder as a short-cut way to adding that "dimension" to your crafting!)

Party & Home Decor

Of course, we can't have a Tropicool Vibes blog without mentioning the Geometric Holder Bigz L Die. Perfect for party planning and decor, use hot, trending patterns such as marble/metallic, glitch, or watercolor. Get creative with the geometric shape of this holder, which will provide fashionable and tropicool vibes regardless of what pattern you choose.

Here's something that we left out of our sneak peak blog: the adorable Tropicool Banner Thinlits Die Set! Turn your Tropical party into something "tripicool" with this banner that comes with toucan and tropical green designs. Don't be afraid to use non-traditional colors for unique, but equally beautiful tropical decor.

Put a tropicool twist on your party favor boxes with this Tropicool Twist Box Thinlits Die Set! Filled with sentiments, flowers, greenery, and a cute chameleon, this decorative and fun box can be used as party favors, gift-giving, or just simple decor. You can use the flower or chameleon thinlits for stand-alone embellishments as well!

Stamps & Cardstock Pad

Last but not least is Lynda's Toucan Sentiments Framelits Die Set w/ Stamps! These 14 new framelit dies include the always trendy flamingo and toucan, along with other greens. Previously not shown in our other blogs, there are also adorable flamingo stamps that have phrases that are just as pleasantly "punny." Wish your friends a "Happy Bird~day" or show them a "toucan of appreciation" today!
