By The Sea


Happy Monday!

I hope you had a great weekend!
I got to spend a lot of time in my craft room since Hubby went to the races on Saturday and golfed on Sunday!

It's summer time and we are hopping with some fabulous companies in the Summer Road Trip Partner Hop with Spellbinders.

Stampendous Stamps is hopping all three days with som fabulous summer imspiration from the design team and on Wednesay two of our designers will be featured a tutorial with some new Spellbinders products!  How fun is that?!?!

Today I am sharing an easel card that is not my usual style but I was challenged with combining Stampendous "By the Sea", Spellbinders, and May Arts.

I am pretty happy with the results!


I used Spellbinders Labels 39 die for the main panel of the card.


The ribbon and pearls are May Arts.
The sentiment is Relax Enjoy.


This is how the card looks when it is closed up and ready to be mailed.


All that beautiful golden "sand" is Spoonful of Gold Dust embossing elements.

Stampendous is a partner company with Spellbinders and we are hopping Today thru July 1st.

I purchase a lot of Stampendous stamps, but i had not seen this one until today. I'm not even a "beach person", but I love it! Great card!! I'm in Colorado (no beaches here! LOL!)

Wow, what an amazing card! I love the stunning background and embellishments. Thanks for the inspiration.

Really think the mason jar is very effective in drawing your focus. The coloring gives the paper true glass effects and tricks your eye into perceiving dimension. Nicely done- way to land the challenge.!!!***!!!!
