CARDS

You guys.  This kit is so cute!  If you are an ocean lover, this kit is for you.  Who am I kidding?  If you are a card maker, this kit is for you!  So many gorgeous stamps, sentiments and the add-ons?  Adorable!  I have to cards to share with you today.  This first card is a clean and simple card using the main kit stamp set....

My Monthly Hero-June 2018

To create this card, I stamped the ocean scene along the bottom of a 4" card panel.  When I stamped the darkest part of the horizon, I cut the panel at that point.  On the card base, I stamped one layer of a 2 layer cloud image and the little sail boat.  I added the ocean scene to the card with fun foam so it would be popped up.  I stamped the sentiment in Versamark on a little banner and then heat embossed it.  I did a tiny bit of stitching and then added that to the card with foam tape.

I have been on a couple cruises and stamping this amazing ocean scene made me think of being on a ship and looking out on to the horizon.  I do love the ocean!  

My Monthly Hero-June 2018

This next card was super fun to make!  Of course, for me, clean and simple and anything rainbow is the way to go!

My Monthly Hero-June 2018

I heat embossed the background stamp called Beachy Bold Prints.  And then of course, next I did some ink blending to add the rainbow of colors.  I cut the panel down and coordinated it with a white panel, adding fun foam to both panels.  I laid them out and stamped the sentiment in the center with my Misti so it was nice and straight.  Then I added both panels to the card front.  I love the clean and simple and the rainbow!  And the flips flops....because I live in those!  :)
