Hip, Hip, Hooray...It's Sweet Stamp Shop Release Day!


Hi everyone and welcome to this month's Sweet Stamp Shop release week!  (The big reveal is tomorrow!!)  Today I'm sharing the brand new set, Dream Ocean.  This sweet set includes three shell images, a boat wheel border, and this great sentiment.  Love it!
 
To create my card I first used Distress Inks and a blending tool to create the background on Sticky Back Canvas (see, I told you I love this stuff!).  The squares were cut out with Spellbinders dies, plain and scalloped.  (The blue scalloped paper is from the new Echo Park For the Record collection).  I then colored my shell images with Distress Markers.  The background cream paper was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.  Oh, and that sweet little bird, which really needed to be added, is from Sweet 'n Sassy (Serene Silhouettes).
 
What to see what the rest of the team is up to?  Check it out!
Kim- You're Here!
