The "Seaside Shore" stamp set is very close to my heart. I love summer and all things ocean. This set was a must have for me! The Designer Series Paper is called "By the Shore".  Now that's a place I'd like to be right now! I love every design in this paper packet - I even used it for a background for my card:

I used the Foil sheets and the new Layering Circle Framelits to add a little bit of "shiny" to the card. I also added metallic thread behind the circle. The card is embossed with the new "Seaside" Embossing Folder. Since I used the seaweed stamp, I wanted the embossing to be vertical instead of horizontal.

I stamped the seaweed lightly with Mint Macaron. I originally stamped the fish directly on the seaweed (with Calypso Coral), but ended up stamping another one, fussy-cutting it, and adhered it to the seaweed circle with a pop dot.

Stay tuned for more new catalog creations throughout this month! This card will be featured in a Facebook Hop the evening of June 10, but I thought I'd give you a first look. Hope you liked it!

  1. I don't need this stamp set but after seeing your card . . . it may just make it on my wish list!! Love it! :)

    1. Thank you Tonya! I wasn't sure about it at first, but it's fast becoming one of my favorite sets.

  2. I am inspired by your great illustrations and explanations. The finished products are very colorful and inviting to see. Your examples are eye-popping and very well done. Sounds like a nice business opportunity too, one which seems worth considering. Can you point me towards a place where more information is readily available?
