Wednesday, August 11- Flourished Sea Creatures
My first card today is Sea you soon! I made this card for my sister as every year we take our vacation together and we stay at a beach house called the Turtle Watch! So now how perfect is this set? I used a MS corner Punch inside and out on my Aqua layer. Then I used the top note die using Basic Grey DP. I ran it through the Bubbles EB Folder and sanded the paper. Then I sprayed it with Tattered Angels Misty Breeze Glimmer Mist. I wish you could see the shimmer and shine in real life! I stamped the turtle, coral, and sea grass on white cs then colored with Copic Markers and cut out. Then I ran Versamark over my pieces and clear embossed and popped them up. Added the Sheer Ribbon and added real shells and stamped my sentiment. Added a few Water Splash Stickers and stamped the envelope with the turtle. :-) Stamps, Ribbon, Paper,Copic Markers all found at Mark`s Finest Papers .
My second card is CAS but I think the red Basic Grey DP torn and put on the Kraft base CS packs a punch! I stamped my crab and colored with Copics. The inside is lined with Basic Grey DP. Added the Black Twine and Sun charm. Sat on my hands and did not add another thing so that I could use this as a guy card if I chose! Stamps,Paper, and Copics found at Mark`s Finest Papers .
I love this set and my cards and hope you do too!

  15. My favorite thing about ALL your cards is that you go a step beyond and decorate the envelopes. I TRY to make myself do that but instead get caught up in the angst of whatever is NOT perfect in the card.

    The color combo in your second card here is just dynamite! LOVE that card.
