Life's a Beach, Ride the Waves

Hello crafty friends,

Today I have another beach card, inspired by this months mood board challenge over at

Craftin Desert Divas.

This is Floatie Girl Digital stamp  sand castle, bucket and shovel are from Sand Castle Girl
Digital Stamp set.
the sand is cut from the Ocean border dies - I used a pearl embossing powder to make the foamy surf & added some very light distress ink to the background using a stencil I made of the ocean waves.
The shell is from the Island Dies.
Added some shimmer  sequins and sentiments from a retired set Summer Lovin.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my card, I hope you will join us for the CDD monthly challenge over on the CDD facebook gallery.

Mission Control

Hello Crafty friends,

I hope everyone is enjoying the Craftin Desert Divas Release.

I was in the hospital for my cardiac ablation and went release shopping as soon as I was awake.  My family could not believe I was shopping.  They just don't understand the cuteness of a new release.

Today I am showcasing the Box card Die Set and Space Cadet Digital Stamp Set

I printed and colored a bunch of the digital stamps and used glossy accents on the helmets.
The paper is from a 12 x12 pad  I used the Garden Border Dies to make my landscape.
Flag Banner Die and Starstruck sequins

This box card die set is so fun & easy to create with.
Thanks for stopping by to see my project.
