So Santa

I chose today’s stamp set, So Santa since I’m thinking about our family, friends, and neighbors to the north in the Carolina’s who are waiting for Florence. Praying they’ll be safe. Living close to the beach has got to be wonderful, but it sounds like Florence will pack a punch. (The day here in North Georgia has been over cast and it’s been raining off and on so we can feel Florence getting closer even this far away.)

So Santa (147824/147821)  is a fun set with quirky little images and sentiments for the holidays and you’ll find it on page 23 in the Holiday Catalog. These two cards happen to use the beach themed image. This first card teams the set up with the Tropical Chic stamp set (146750/146753).


And how about this card? I love the look of the surf board. I wish you could see it. I’m not sure my photo does it justice – colored with Stampin’ Blends, a quick swish of Wink of Stella and then a bit of VersaMark Ink Pad and Clear Embossing Powder.

The sand dollars and net were created with the Under the Sea Framelits Dies (146334). Too cute!

Well that is it for today since I’m a bit late posting – I’m sure my son will be looking for food soon, and since I’ve been playing in the classroom this afternoon making little treats for my Holiday Catalog Kick Off this Saturday I don’t have anything planned. LOL, so I better get going before he starts digging through the pantry!

More Sea of Textures

Yesterday I shared some cards with you using the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper – today’s cards don’t use Designer Series Paper, instead they add interest and texture with stamps and techniques.

This first card uses our Brusho Color Crystals (144101) to create the background for the window.

And can you see the texture on the net? Add a little Soft Suede Reinker (115663) to our Fine Tip Glue Pen adhesive and dab it on to create some wonderful texture with a shine!

And here this card uses the Shaving Cream Technique and our Lemon Lime Twist (144092), Bermuda Bay (131156) and Night of Navy (103033)  reinkers to create this fun back drop.

and check out this fun fold that hides this sentiment inside.

And finally this card uses just stamping to create lots of fun texture
