Tips & Tricks:

My card this week features a new stamp set from the 2017 Occasions Catalog.  This is a stamp set that I think is a must have.  If you love the beach and can’t get enough of it, this is differently a stamp set for you.  When the call of the oceans calls your name and you can’t make a trip all you have to do is pull this set out.   On my card I used a piece of the Party Animal Designer Series Paper, and most wouldn’t even realize that this subtle paper would have come from that bright and cheerful paper.  The DSP strip is actually on the inside of the card and you are able to view it from the outside. By placing the strip of window sheeting as part of the card front it allows me to use it to sturdy the lighthouse as well as lets the DSP be visible.


To tie the window sheeting in to the rest of the card I added some of the birds on it that goes across the card front and the window sheet.  I used Versamark and Dapper Denim ink & clear embossing powder to emboss the birds.  I had to hand cut the lighthouse and the sand out because sadly there were no dies to use.   But, this image is actually extremely easy to fussy cut if you do decide to cut it out.
