Our final set this month is another FABULOUS creation from Torio. Made to coordinate perfectly with the previously released Make A Splash stamp set, this set if perfect for not only making cards, but scrapbooking your family vacations, and summer beach trips!
I count it as a REALLY good day when you've finished making a card and you LOVE it, don't you?!? I never seem to think to use little images multiple times until after I've seen someone else do it. So when I saw last weeks iSpy Sketch (ISSC25), I knew this would be the perfect chance for me to try it out!! I'm so glad I did because it was tons of fun and now I'm hooked and looking for ways to use those smaller images more.
My card starts with a 4x4 square base of Bazzill's Candy Bar cardstock and layers of Peppermint and Peanut Cluster cardstock. Each of the little crabs were colored with Copics, cut out, popped up with foam dots and given a little touch of Stardust Stickles for some sparkle. And once again, I used my new Perfect Layers tool to achieve the perfectly straight and spaced 1/16" layers on my card.
Edit: This card was chosen as a Splitcoast Stampers CAS Favorite!! :)

I am SO very excited about two FABULOUS guest designers I have joining me today!!
First up is my 11 year old step-daughter, Amanda. Amanda loves making cards, coloring and organizing my stamp supplies!! (How lucky am I?!?) She colored her image with pencils and added a satin ocean blue ribbon tied in a sweet little bow. And take a look at those clouds she drew!!
Next, is my 5 year old son, Nathan. Nathan loves all things boy but from time to time, he can be found sitting at my table coloring with me. Nathan was inspired to color his image to look like his big brother, Michael. :) Oh, and before I forget...he wanted me to mentioned that his card is for sale. When I asked him how much he wanted to sell it for, he said he'd like $100.00!! ROTFL!!
The Beach Bum stamp set was such a huge hit, that the kids begged to use the stamps the day they arrived in the mail and had their cards finished before me!!
I would be forever grateful if you'd PLEASE leave my little guest designers some love today!!!
It would truly make their day!!
Beach Bum is a 6x8 set that includes a total of 19 stamps and will sell for $24.00.
