Inspire - Create - Share- Blog Hop

Red White and Blue is the theme for this month's blog.  We are in July and the 4th of July is a big event, but I decided to do a card  that will cover many different events this month.  Hope you enjoy visiting all the blogs on this hop.

I used two stamp sets for this card.  One is the new stamp set 'Sea Street" (wood #133985 / clear #133988) and the other is a carry over from the Spring catalog 'Just Sayin' (wood # 133200 / clear # 133203), which I die cut, using the Big Shot.  For the water, I used the tearing technique and stamped on the middle and bottom layers.  The octopus was  stamped on the same color card stock used for the waves and so it made it easy to cut around the octopus and add it to the ocean scene.  If you wish to order online, please click HERE to shop.

I want to let you know 'Paper Pumpkin' is a popular kit that you can have sent to your home each month, and have a surprise project to work on in a short period of time.  All you need  is your own adhesive and everything else is supplied in the box!  You will always get a stamp and an ink spot, which can be added to your collection for future projects.  Click here to learn more and give it a trial month for a small fee. I really hope you check into this fun kit.
