Wish You Were Here

Hello sweet friends!  This week Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is featuring the stamp set Wish You Were Here.  Since we'll soon be heading to the beach to soak up some sun for our summer vacation , I thought I'd share a sunny card with you today using the featured set.

The background was created with Gelatos, Gesso and spritzes of water on Mixed Media paper. Real sand was sprinkled on the Kraft beach, and both the positive and negative wave die cuts were used for the ocean.  Of course you can't head to the beach without your umbrella, flip flops, and lemonade!  These beach accessories were colored with Copic Markers and cut with the matching Beach Dies.  Everything was painted with a clear Wink of Stella marker for shimmer, but it's hard to see on the photo.  The sentiment was stamped on a pennant die, and Baker's twine was added to finish the card!  

Wish You Were Here is the perfect stamp set for making fun beach scenes and this week you can get it for 20% off the retail price.  

It's not too late to enter our Fun at the Beach Challenge for a chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to the Sweet 'n Sassy Store!  Check THIS post for the details!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I think the sun is finally to show its bright smile today so it might be the perfect day to soak up the sun!
