Layers of Color Saturday - Under the Sea

Hello All and happy Saturday!

Hope everyone is enjoying another weekend. We are in the midst of another super humid day here and I'm sure we'll be getting more thunderstorms later. We had some bad ones last night. We are hoping to get in some fun outside with the kids before the storms though. Hope you have fun things planned too!

I want to share two cards today from my Layers of Color gallery. Both of these card use the stamp set Under the Sea which can be purchased from the Layer of Color online shop. This is a versatile set to use for focal images or to create backgrounds. I used it for the focal images on both cards.

This first card uses a coral image which I stamped in black ink and embellished with sticky pearls. It's been framed with scalloped rectangle nesties. The white cardstock layer has been dry embossed with the CB and a script embossing folder. The final touch was to add some pretty satin ribbon and a charm with hemp twine.


The second card is also black and white but with a little punch of color. I found a piece of retired SU! Cool Caribbean cardstock and thought it was perfect with a sea shell image. The white cardstock layer on this card was dry embossed with the CB and Swiss dots folder. The final touches are a simple piece of black ribbon and a black brad.

Thanks for stopping over today. I'll be back tomorrow with a DT card for this week's Pile It On challenge. Have a super Saturday! Happy stamping! :)

Hi Denise! Nice cards, love the first one, very classy! Hope you get a chance to have fun with the kids before the rains come! I wish we could have some rain here, everything is so dry as it's really hot and hasn't rained for over 6 weeks! Take care, Shelly x
