Saltwater Heals Everything

Each year my Sister and I try to spend a week together in a new location ... and in recent years, those locations have often included the beach.  We both love feeling our feet in the sand, listening to the sound of the waves, and collecting sea shells.

Memories of those experiences ... and looking forward to our upcoming trip together next month inspired my card designs.

Remember, all new stamps are 15% off through the 8th (and you get an additional 10% off your entire order by using my discount code TJ10Stephanie).

I started by creating a watery background by spraying three different Shimmering Bliss Sprays on Watercolor Paper ... I love the color combination of Ocean Depth, Miami Vice and Vivid Volt.

All of today's cards feature the new Underwater Borders Stamps.

For the first one I combined it with the Saltwater Heals Everything sentiment and some wonderful Tropical papers from the new Paradise Found Collection by Kaisercraft.  I also stamped the Mermaid from Mermaid Kisses several times to peek through from the top of the panel.

For the next card I used a different Underwater Borders stamp and added two stamps from the Seashells Stamp Set before finishing with some sequin "bubbles" and the Saltwater Sentiment again.

And my third card the combines the Underwater Border with two stamps from the Mermaid Kisses set ... I love how well these stamp sets work together to create a card set filled with underwater wonder.  I'm also linking-up at the Summer Fun Challenge at Always Fun Challenges.

I can almost hear the ocean calling my name.
