I love this botanical stamp set from Gina K's Stamp TV. Silhouette stamps are great and can be used for every occasion. The dragonfly represents the impermanence of life. Very meaningful here.
I continued stamping with the botanical set using the emboss resist technique. So fun. I made this one a birthday card and left the next one with out any sentiment. I love the little scalloped golden edged lace my sister found when she was out on a treasure hunt at a thrift store.
I made this beach scene yesterday in air conditioned comfort. I cut the flip-flops by hand and added the strap by lacing it through the bottom, then coated it all with glossy accents. The little sea shells and sentiment were a gift set with a purchase from Gina K's Stamp TV. Included with the set (not shown) are a sand castle, a bucket and shovel, a beach ball, pinwheel and "build your dreams" & "Play like a kid" A delightful surprise addition to my order.
I like the effect of the torn papers for the ocean and sand. Again glossy accents adds some dimension and adheres the sand I poured over it. The inside says "have a ball"
Last up is a remake of the ladybug card I blotched. Simple and cute. The inside is another technique for dry embossing leaving a blank space.
I continue to find joy in creating and sharing the fun I have learning new techniques. Wishing you the same.
