Good Morning Everyone,
Today over at Taylored Expressions, the sneak peeks are continuing and today some of us are sneak peeking an absolutely awesome stamp set that is one of my favorites: called Hangin' Out - At the Beach. can coordinate with the Hangin' Out stamp set that was released last month. I love love love all the cute cute stamps that are in this set!!! I created a little clothesline from the two palm trees (I cut and dimension-alized the palm trees) and then used the sun from the Garden Party Blooms stamp set from last month's release and paper pieced these adorable swimsuits!!
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the sentiment don't you!!! There is still the whole process of going swimsuit shopping this year that I am dreading - but hopefully I will have some luck :) The backup plan is always my favorite - to go and have a double decker ice cream cone :)
I love the sweet waves that are in this sweet stamp set and couldn't wait to make another card - this one uses the totally sweet surfboards in this set with one of my favorite sentiments: "Life is like a wave, you can't change the way it breaks, but you can change the way you ride it." LOVE that sentiment - how true that is! I stamped, copified and cut out the waves and then created layers of sand with some tearing and then glazed it over with some stickles and glitter for a water washed sandy beach look:
I loved coloring and cutting out the surfboards and then added the sun from the Garden Party Blooms stamp set stamp set for more summer fun :) Speaking of cutting, I couldn't wait to cut out these super cute chinese lanterns in this stamp set and create a card with them :)
I love the versatility of this stamp set and how it doesn't just have to be for summer - its also great for making those "hard to make" man cards when you have such cool images of surfboards and waves! The thing that I love about this stamp set - is that I can't wait to make more cards!!! :))
Speaking of more cards, ride the blog wave this morning and surf on over to all of the amazing creations that the Baker's Dozen has created with these yummy stamp sets!!!
