Darlene with you today and I can't express how much fun I had creating today's card. I purchased these dies from the Dies R Us Store at the end of summer and now that the holidays are over I finally have a chance to play with them.
I just loved this Memory Box Graceful Branch Oval so once I die cut it from white card stock, I knew I needed to have a 'watery' background for my Frantic Stamper Sea Creatures Icons to swim in. Here's a quick and easy way to create such a background.
I cut a piece of white card stock the same size as my branch oval die cut panel. First you'll want to ink it up using a lighter shade of blue then sponge the upper portion with a darker shade of blue. Viola!
The other dies I have used in my creation are the Frantic Stamper Shoreline Reeds and the adorable Elizabeth Craft Rocky the Crab. Faux stitching was done to bring attention to the ocean view panel.
Remember, each an every day of the month there's a new inspiration sample shared on the blog by this fabulous design team. Please be sure to pop in regularly.
