I totally CASEd this one from a fellow demonstrator Michelle Suit the queen of punch art. When I saw her card I knew I had to recreate it because I love Disney. It was really Simple I used a couple punches, the Star Stencil and a couple sets; Kinda Eclectic (one of my new favs) and the sentiment is from Hip Notes.
Welcome to the August 2014 Release! Dies seem to be the trend in card making right now and Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has some fabulous new dies to release this month that coordinate with several of our summer stamp sets already available in the store! The bonus is that even though these stamps and dies were designed to be summer sets, they can be used all year long for the beach lover, as you can see from my samples. They can be fun or elegant it's all in how you use them!
My first sample is using them for a fun card
I made the background using a stencil and sponging with Lost Lagoon SU ink, next I sprayed it with some Heidi Swap color shine to give it contrast and shimmer. I colored my Happy Ocean Friends with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I added some Tall Grass for the little fishy to swim through and to finish it I added some bubbles using crystal accents.
Die set includes 7 dies
Designed by Korin Sutherland
Die set price is $16.75
Next up is my sample using them for an elegant card
And last I used them for an everyday card could be for a birthday, retirement, or moving
This one was super quick and easy having the dies to match the set. I colored my shells from Beauty By The Sea a pale pinkish white with my Copic markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I again added some shimmer with A Wink of Stella, then added some shimmery tine to finish it off.

Playing with some Sweet Shop Stamps today to make this masculine birthday card for this weeks Mod Squad Challenge. I started out with a So Saffron card base, added some of the Lawn Fawn Polka papers. I colored the hippo with my colic markers and added some crystal accents to his glasses to make them fun.
Nicole is also holding a DT call if you wanna try out :)
I am sharing this one on A Scrap N Place blog today. I made this one for a couple challenges as well. One of the DTGD challenges on split coast was Sassy and Bling and Natalie is definitely sassy and I gave her some bling as well.
I am also entering this one over at Mod Squad challenges for their
This is a technique I had never tried before, don't know why just haven't but I do like it. I weaved two different pieces of design paper together on white card stock and then cut it out with the stitched butterfly dies from Lil Inker.
