Stamping Inkspirations June Blog Hop Splish Splash

Welcome to the Stamping Inkspirations June Blog Hop as we showcase projects with the theme "Splish Splash". You will have the opportunity to visit with talented crafters as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own wonderful creations. 
When I think of Splish Splash, it reminds me of days at the beach, playing in the waves and searching for seashells. So I just had to use the beautiful Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set and the coordinating Seashells 3D Embossing Folder to create my card design. To create the background, I sponged Sahara Sand, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay Classic ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock to create the feel of the ocean. The embossing is actually debossed so that the design sinks down into the card rather than be raised.

This card is easy to create and the embossing adds wonderful texture to the background of this design. I love the way these colors work together to create the look and feel of the ocean and the Sahara Sand label adds a nice contrast to the design. I colored the Basic Rhinestones with Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends to coordinate with the card and added them to the sentiment label.
