I’ve been using some of my favorite stamp sets that will be retiring May 31st. I couldn’t leave out the So Many Shells Stamp Set. The shells go perfectly with the new 2018-2019 Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper, don’t you think?

Tranquil Textures with So Many Shells


My inspiration began with this week’s Global Design Project challenge:

A Crumb Cake card base is the sand. The ocean is a piece of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper, bordered with a darker piece from the same pack. This darker piece is also used for the net, which I cut with an Eclectic Layers die. 

I left the ends loose for a floating effect. To satisfy the sketch requirements, I cut a strip of Crumb Cake, embossed it with the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder, and placed it horizontally across the net. Before attaching the strip with dimensionals, I wound Linen Thread around it.

Now, for my pretty, scallop shells from the So Many Shells Stamp Set. I stamped them in Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand inks, fussy cut, and punched holes in their tops. They are securely tied with more Linen Thread, and raised on dimensionals.

The sentiments in the So Many Shells Stamp Set are beautiful, but a bit large for my space. I chose “for you” from the new 2018-2019 Itty Bitty Stamp Set. And, I added three Share What You Love Artisan Pearls. These colored pearls are so pretty!

The envelope flap is decorated with Powder Pink Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper.
