Sea Shells by the Sea Shore….

The Gulf Cost is one of the prettiest places I have ever been. I love the cost so very much. One of my absolute favorite things is to walk on the beach looking for Sea Shells. Seeing all the different colors, shapes, and sizes. Thinking about where they came from, how far the shells traveled. Who will they belong to next. Just so much glory in their being. This experience is just so very serial to me. Just being and enjoying the creation around us.

Stampin’ Up! has a great set that explores all the wonderfulness of Sea Shells called So Many Shells. This set is a two-step stamp set! But, I really think several of the shells would stand on their own perfectly!

This stamp is jam-packed with amazing sentiments! Witch gives you more bang for your buck. But, most of all it makes the set very vestal.

Stampin’ Up! has out done it’s self with the samples in the Annual catalog. This card is so beautiful. I love the embossing and the layering of textures.

CAS(E) this Sketch! has a fabulous clean and simple sketch that is AMAZING!!! Truly it is so very vestal! We all need to remember this sketch!!!!

This card features a technique that I have been working with for a few weeks.  It is a Faux Batik technique. Batik is a fabric dyeing technique that evolves wax to resist color during the dyeing process.  I will be sharing a video about this process in the near future.

  • For the Faux Batik layer I used the circles from the Playful Backgrounds Stamp Set with the colors Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Tranquil Tide
  • The round shell is stamped in Sahara Sand and Soft Suede.  The other shell is stamped in Powder Pink and Flirty Flamingo .  Each of the shells are fussy cut!  I love how easy these shells are to cut!!!!
  • What a fabulous sentiment Sea’s the Day is!  This sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede.
  • The card was brought together with a few glitter enamel dots and silver thread

I had so much fun making this card! And I am greatly looking forward to sharing more about this Faux Batik Technique with  you guys!  Make sure that you hop over to CAS(E) this Sketch!  to see all the beautiful samples the design team and those playing along have for you!
