Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle At the Beach Blog Hop! If you arrived here from
Cammy's blog you are in the right place. If not, you'll want to start at the beginning so that you don't miss out on anything. Be sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs, and that will ensure that you are in the running for lots of great prizes :)
My first card was made using the sea shells from the set Tropical (#158) and a sentiment from Beach Babes (#473). I was inspired by all my visits to the beach as a child, when I always looked forward to combing the beach for shells.
I used the always fabulous Sticker Paper (#99558), punched some scallops and coated it in various shades of gorgeous embossing powders to simulate waves. Each shell was also made with embossing powder & 1/2" Tear-ific tape coated in Sparkling Sands and the background was made using those same shells simply stamped in Versamark. All of the specific embossing powder colors I used can be found here.
My second card was made using the super adorable Molly(#3677-473N) from the set
Beach Babes (#473). How cute is she? I wish I looked this adorable in a bikini...lol! She was colored with Copic markers and I added a glittery flower made with Jasper Blue Velvet Glitter (#GM2012) and Celestial Glitter (#G1031). Again, specific details can be found right here.
I'm keeping it brief in an effort to move you along quickly to the fantastic blog of Brigita!
Thanks for hopping with me and have a great day!
