Life's A Beach! - LSC220 - Splitcoaststampers

I created this card for the Limited Supply Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers today! The requirements were: beach images only, one sentiment, and one embellishment. Sea shells qualify as the ultimate beach image, I do believe so I pulled out my 3 Step Sea Shells by Kitchen Sink Stamps. The sentiment comes from Words of Love, another KSS favorite! As my one embellishment, I used Eucalyptus Stickles.

The ocean was created with torn layers of Baja Breeze by Stampin' Up. I sponged the top of the waves with Baja Breeze and the front of the first wave with White Craft Ink. I added the Stickles to the top of the waves.

The clouds were sponged with White Craft Ink as well.

Stamps: 3 Step Sea Shells and Words of Love by Kitchen Sink Stamps

Papers: Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, Naturals Ivory, and Kraft by Stampin' Up

Inks: Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Cameo Coral, Elegant Eggplant, Baja Breeze, and Whisper White Craft by Stampin' Up

Embellishment: Eucalyptus Stickles


  1. lynn..i LOVE the colors youve chosen...its a gorgeous soft and serene feeling..perfect for an ocean/beach your use of stickles is perfect!
    this is truly a lovely card! TFS!

  2. Lynn, this is beautiful! I actually bought some Kitchen Sink Stamps and this is one of them! I can't wait to use them and I am so glad I got to see them in use. I haven't used them yet. The waves you created are awesome.
    I am still at work but amazingly enough, my ship went to Brownsville and of course I went home and brought gobs of stuff on board. I made Mother's Day cards and sold 7 to some of the crew!
    Right now I am in Corpus Christi with an internet card! I am catching up on yours and Liz's blogs!
    I should be back into the challenges mid to late June!
    take care!! andi

  4. This card makes me wish I was on the beach right now. I love the sparkle! Great card!!

  5. There's just something about seashells that attract my attention. I guess it's the saltwater in our veins from living so close to the gulf coast all of our lives, you think?

  6. This is just dreamy!! I love how you created the waves and the glittered edges! How I wish I was on the beach right now *sigh*

  7. WOW!!!! Your ocean card is gorgeous Lynn!!!!! Love the waves!
