Got Shells?

Summer will be here before you know it so I thought I share some fun Beach inspired projects with you today!  The Rubber Cafe has a huge selections of terrific summery images available in the on line store now!



I made a couple of cards using the  Sea Shell Set .  Here's the first one.


I was inspired by the colors in that yummy ribbon that I recently got from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The shells were stamped with VersaMark embossing ink and then embossed with Aged Gold Embossing Powder by Stampendous.  I love this stuff! This card looks really cool in real life! Everything was glued down with Scrap Happy Glue.



Here is another card that I made with the same Sea Shell Set and the Medium Lightning Whelk Conch Shell.  

Here's how I created the background.  First put all four of the stamps from the Sea Shell Set on a clear block.


Ink the stamps up with Memento Rich Cocoa dye ink and stamp randomly to cover the beige panel of card stock.  It's a fast and easy way to create a great background paper!



I hope you enjoyed my cards today and are inspired to go create some summer inspired projects for yourself!
