Beautiful Beach

Retiring

Beautiful Beaches & the terrific “Cheesecloth” background stamp are both retiring this Saturday with the retirement of the 2006-07 Idea Book & Catalog.

This is one of the best seashell sets we’ve had in awhile and I am sad to report that there isn’t a comperable set to this one in the 2007 Fall/Winter Collection (duh, it’s Fall/Winter!)… you’ll have to wait until January or April of next year! 

This card is a sample from my “Retiring Sets” Stamp a Stack of Stuff that I am hosting this evening for the last time. The colors are Creamy Caramel, Bashful blue & Brocade.  The main shell is embossed in white, cut out, and tucked in and the other stamping is with white crafters ink (but the saying is in Close to Cocoa).

    How did you make the beige paper look like sand? What did you use?

    The cardstock is creamy caramel and the stamp set had a stippled ‘sand’ like stamp that I did stamp in white. I did nothing else to the paper (other than tear a ragged edge to complete the natural look).

  7. You made some good points there. I did a Google search about the topic and found most people will believe your blog.
