Day #3: Beach Life

Today is the final day of sneak peeks, and today I'm sharing a few cards from the Beach Life stamp set.  I can see myself using this stamp set for cards as well as scrap book pages, the stamps lend themselves nicely for both.  I love the, "wish you were here" sentiment, I'm always wishing a friend or family was here in Florida with me.  As always, head on over to the Flourishes Newsletter, for your chance to win this set, they are having a one day only blog candy.  Today is the last day, to enter the By the Sea contest (you can win all three new released sets) for more details on that, again go to the Flourishes Newsletter.  I can't wait to chat with all of you at tonight's release party over on SCS.

For my first card, I stamped and colored my image onto Flourishes classic white paper & Copic markers, then die cut it using a Spellbinder die & my cuttlebug.  I went through my stash of paper looking for a green to match my grass and settled on this designer paper from American Crafts, which went perfectly with the old olive grosgrain ribbon.  The card base is kraft card stock...you can never ever go wrong with kraft, I {heart} it.
"wish you were here"
For this card, I really really wanted clean and simple, so I went with the true one layer card with no embellishments.  All I did was score the edges of the card stock 1/4 inch in, stamped my image and then colored it in using Copic markers.  Plus it will only take one stamp to mail.
"wish you were here...clean and simple style"
