Hi everyone! I love the ocean! I will live by the ocean someday! In the meantime, in my beautiful sunny state of Colorado, I will make myself happy by creating little works of art about the ocean! I bought the 'Set Sail' clear stamp set from Simon Says Stamp because of the wonderful sentiments included. The sweet little sailboat, anchors and sea life stamps are just a great bonus!
Although both cards are paper pieced with the same patterned paper pad, each features a different background that fits the sentiment. Both sets of waves are layered with the pretty shimmer paper included with the SSS August card for a bit of shine!
This card is the more clean and simple of the two with an inked background that is touched with just a bit of Perfect Pearls. I popped it off the card base and added some twine and shiny sequins along with one of those awesome sentiments!
The background of the second card features an inked sun along with a bit of dry embossing on the bottom. I used more of the shimmer paper from My Mind's Eye for a border and tucked a few more sequins into the waves. I love this sentiment- I say it to myself everyday! I will get my ocean fix in a couple of weeks when I go to visit my daughter in sunny California!
Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
