sneak peek – Silly Shells

Welcome friends to another sneak peek day!  Today I am showing stamps from the soon to be released set from Mark’s Finest Papers called Silly Shells.

I love all types of beachy stamps and this shell set will be one of those that I go to again and again.  I chose a clean and simple layout – the images are stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with copics.   I sponged memento sand and sky inks for the background.

Be sure to stop by again this week for more sneak peeks!

chill out

Hello friend  I’m still here.  Just been busy with life, but still stamping and creating. 

I hope you are having a wonderful 4th of July weekend – its hot and humid here as usual, but that is ok because the beaches are gorgeous and the water refreshing.

Over at Splitcoast we are having a Holiday Clean and Simple Challenge starting today and continuing tomorrow.  I hope you will join us!  I created this card for the CAS challenge with the theme of “grilling or picnics”.  I kn ow many of you have a nice cold beverage when you are grilling or picnicing – here is my beverage:

The drink and umbrella are from Rubbernecker stamps and were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The drink was sponged with all the colors from the Kaleidacolor Desert Heat rainbow ink pad.  The blueish tint on the glass and the umbrella were colored with copics in the lighter shades of BG markers.  The umbrella is popped up.  The word “chill” was computer generated because I could not find the right size and shape alphabet stamps in my own stash.

Thanks for stopping by today!
