So Many Shells – Freshly Made Sketch

The card I have for you today is my submission for the latest Freshly Made Sketch challenge. I loved this week’s sketch.

So Many Shells

So Many Shells is a fun beach themed stamp set that has beautiful sentiment as well as two-step images.  Two-step images are ones that are created with two different stamps.  These stamps are photopolymer so they’re fairly easy to line up visually, which I did with the background stamps.  But, if you have the Stamparatus, because you preordered it, then it’s ridiculously easy to get perfect alignment which is what I did for the big shell so that my white heat embossing would line up correct.y.  If you didn’t preorder, don’t worry, it will be available to order June 1.

Besides all the stamping I did for this card, I used a base of Marina Mist, also the ink color for the sentiment.  I layered a piece of Soft Sky that I embossed with the Seaside embossing folder.  The DSP is from the Sweet Soiree pack.

I finished this design with linen thread and a few pearls.  I’m so ready for summer – if only I lived closer to the ocean.
