Life´s a Beach with Earth, Wind or Fire

Good morning peeps, hope you all had a lovely weekend. Looks like everyone is having a heatwave although it is a tad too hot for me.

Die Cut Dreams theme for this week is

Life´s a Beach

So let´s see your seaside themed cards and projects.

I knew straight away which stamp I was going to use and can you believe this is the first time I have inked her up. I have coloured Tilda with copics and raised her with 3d pads. I love this set of sentiments from SU and was so lucky to receive these as a birthday present from a dear friend and fellow DT, thanks again sweetie. I have cut them out with my nesties and mounted onto yet more. Papers are from the Vintage Collection available at Bearly Mine Designs and the flowers are of coarse from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Allsorts - Embossing
Corrosive - Flowers, Flowers, Flowers


Sweet Pea Stampers have set the theme of

Earth, Wind or Fire

I chose Wind and used Ching Chou Kuik´s "Zinnia" from her Asian Mystique cd and added little bits of glitter. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the gorgeous pins are from Posh Pins, papers, ribbons and pearls are from my stash.
