Splashtastic Summer

Howdy!!   I finally created 2 cards using Splashtastic Summer stamp set by K. Andrew Design from Getting Cricky. OMGosh.. do I love them!! they are soo cute!!  ADORE!

The 1st card I created, I used some SU A2 baby blue card stock that came in my “grab bag” I got a few months ago, I am trying to use up all that stuff I got to make it worth it. The stripe layer, is from an old DCWV Glitter Mat Stack I’ve had in my paper hoarding stash.  The background I created using some flip flop stamps of a small stamp set from MFT Hit the beach stamp set that I forgot I had.  I used several Tim Holtz distressing inks to create my own background and then colored in a beach ball with SU markers.  I also finally used my Irock.  I really like the way it turned out.   Then for the sentiment I used,  Splahstastic Summer stamp sentiment “ DON’T FLIP OUT”  LOL  I love it. 

Fernando & I been kind of grumpy at each other. Two teacher on vacation is kind of getting to us. UGH. I love him but goodness he needs to get away for a while! LOL

I really liked the way it turned out.. very Summery!

My 2nd card, I created a video on how I made it.  I got my inspiration from VICKY P from LILY PAD Cards, I just love to watch her YOUTUBE videos of her technique she uses. YOu need to go see her videos.. omgosh awesome!!  I started to watch her videos when she was under her old youtube channel which you can see here.

Here’s my card.. then following is my youtube vid.  The sentiment is also from Splashtastic Summer stamp set from K. Andrew!  You definitely need to go buy her stamps. LOVE THEM!  simplysunday amazing you 005 (480x640)
