Many designers, including myself, have been creating with the set. I wanted to share two card ideas with you. This stamp set has many great images, and even though I am all the way in North Texas basically landlocked, I will use this set often as it has many fun images. I recommend giving it a look!
For this first card, I took the largest lobster image (how cute is it!) and stamped it repeatedly. I was able to get these all in a straight line by using my MISTI tool. Instead of coloring these, I just stamped them with a red ink from Gina K so that I wouldn’t need to do any coloring. I cut out the panel that I stamped using the largest stitched rectangle from the Small Stitched Rectangles by Lawn fawn, popped the panel up using foam tape and adhered it down to red cardstock. I used the same red cardstock for the sentiment, which I heat embossed using white powder and cut the sentiment out with one of the Classic Frame Dies from Waffle Flower.
For my second card, I knew that I wanted to create a beach scene. I used the two beach chairs, which I colored with Copic markers, and fussy cut them out. I then ink blended some ocean blue distress oxide ink colors, and cut out that panel with the Making Waves Cover Panel Die from Mama Elephant. I cut a circle out of a card panel to use as my window. So simple, and I love how this card came out.
