Mouth of a Sailor Collage

 I try not to swear, really! Just sometimes my mouth gets ahead of my pure mermaid heart...

The background of today's card was colored with blended Catherine Pooler Ink, and uses stamps from the Play Like a Pirate Set, the Fading Sea Scales Stamp, and the mermaid from the By the Sea set.

Ain't Yer Pasture


I am a nosy girl sometimes, and this stamp is an excellent reminder to keep my snout in my own pasture! The Cow Prints stencil from ACLD surrounds the Ain't yer Pasture stamp. A little snarky, a lotta true! Ain't Yer Pasture:

Celebrate, America!

 Let's Celebrate, America (I like that sentence - it works both with and without the comma)! This 4th of July card captures all of the things the holiday is about - patriotism, flags, and sparkle! Links to the Celebrate America Background, the Patriotic Fragments (the flag) and the God Bless the USA stamp are below.

My Beach Chair

 I am due for a day like this! I so wish I was sitting in this chair right now! I love lazy beach days. My ideal is a book in one hand, sunglasses on, a big floppy hat and toes in the sand! I am a beach girl, that is for sure. How about you - do YOU love the beach?

The Sketched Beach stamp was lightly colored with colored pencils on kraft paper, and the sentiment is from the Sand, Seashells and Flip Flops Sentiment Set. Links are below.

Shells in the Sand

 Our popular Sand, Seashells and Flip Flops Set of 9 is great for beach cards of all kinds! On this mini-slimline card, I sprayed Worn Saddle Shimmering Bliss after I stamped and colored the shells and sentiment to give it a lightly sand-like look. After coloring, Diamond Glaze was applied to the shells to give them shine and dimension. The stamp set is here:
