Sweet Peak -- Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - Relax!

Note:  if you are looking for my WMS Saturday Sketch Card - Please scroll down to the next post!  Thanks!

Welcome to my Sneak Peek of a wonderful new beach set by Sweet n' Sassy Stamps called Beauty by the Sea.

First I embossed a square Nestability in the center of my card. (you can see how I do this on my older post here)  Then I cut a piece of this fun patterned paper to fit inside the frame (I'm thinking this is like a little  beach blanket on the sand and the Starfish is laying on it getting a tan ! LOL!!!) 

I stamped the starfish on the blue cardstock, cut it out and layered it over the patterned paper with foam tape.  Then I did the same with the sentiment using an oval punch to cut it out.

Finally I added the die cut ocean waves - again with foam tape to give it a little dimension.

You'll find more info and pics of this lovely new set over at the Sweet N Sassy blog, and you'll find links to more DT samples!

It will be available for purchase on June 1 - just in time for those hot summer day cards you're going to be making!

Boy - I'd love to be laying on the beach on this cute blanket catching some rays and watching the waves roll by wouldn't you???!!!

This is just so cute, pretty, and 'relaxing' too! I noticed that the Followers thumbnails have been missing for quite a while now. I reported it and you can too here: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/blogger/ask?ln=0271191b4249689a&hl=en

I'll tell you what...I could use a little relaxation. Love this card and seeing it makes me want to spend time in a chair by the beach. Let's go!
