Hi! I was so busy today I cannot believe I was able to make a card...but I did ,Yayy!! This card is made from the Shells and Sand Set from october pumpkin. I will have some other views of the card and stamp on (seller -octoberpumpkin) The view I wanted to post would not load so I will try the Etsy site. Again , I used my Chestnut Roan Colorbox to stamp, I told you I love it! The shell is colored with pink watercolor and layered with pop-dots. The "thinking of you" stamp is from Studio G. Papers are from K and Company and ribbon from Joann's. This was a fun card to make and you can't go wrong with the beach all year long!
I wanted to let everyone know that my mother is the artist that designs the stamp image that I use and that I sell at Etsy. I have loved her work all my life and treasure every piece she has ever given me. Last year, we began toying with the idea of starting a rubber stamp company and by the fall eight sets of stamps were designed and sent to be made. It was such a thrill to receive them and use them! If you check us out at Etsy there is more about how the stamps are made on each listing.
I see today I have 2 followers and I am so excited! I hope to get a project a day done for a bit so there is something to come back to everyday! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!

Thoughts of warm weather!

This was a fun card to design since the colors are ocean and seaglass inspired! One of my other loves... SEAGLASS! What could be better than having rubber stamps I can use the colors of the seaside to fill in the stamped image! This stamp I love...I think because of the whale! It is from Ocean Sweet Home collection that includes three row houses. This stamp, Whale House, also
is a single stamp for purchase, but you will end up wanting all three! For this card project I used... a vanilla 5x6.5 inch card, K and Company Seaglass cardstock and Bailey cardstock for the tag, Core'dinations sand cardstock to mat the stamped image, Studio G " just a note "stamp
Colorbox Chestnut Roan ink, rick rack from my stash and of course Whale House Stamp from
october pumpkin! You can have your own Whale House and look at other stamps we have at and octoberpumpkin is our seller name!
