Coastal Cabana In Color Sample

Hi Stampers! 

It's the day before Thanksgiving and all of New Jersey is a stormy mess!  This storm is just a drop in the bucket compared to those fickle ladies who have stormed the state over the last few years.  I can guarantee you that the weather is not going to stop all of us from getting ready for Turkey Day!  I know that I have an evening of cupcake baking ahead of me when I get home from work. :-)

I wish that I had had the time to make a special Thanksgiving project for today's post, but due to the move I am just finally settling in to my craft room and have really been focusing on those projects for the next big holiday. 

So instead of turkey, I bring you fish!  :-)

This was the card sample that I had included with my Coastal Cabana In Color Club packet.  Every year, beginning in June, I run an In Color Club.  Each month, for 5 months, those who join In Color Club get a packet of ink, cardstock, and embellishments all in one of the new In Colors.  It's an affordable way to build your stamping stash and collect all of the new colors released every June.  Each packet also includes a card sample showcasing that month's color.

I used the By The Tide stamp set for this sample.  You can't really see it in the picture, but for the coral, I first stamped it in Coastal Cabana.  Then, using my Stampamajig, I stamped over the coral again in Versamark ink and heat embossed with the Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  I love the Iridescent Ice embossing powder because it adds sparkle without the mess of glitter.

By The Tide Class Favor

Hi Stampers!

I think one of the most popular stamp sets amongst my customers is the By The Tide stamp set.  It's a great set for all types of cards - including a lot of masculine cards.  Today I'm sharing the little favor I made for each of my customers.  I couldn't resist filling the 1x8 cello bags with some Swedish Fish candies.  Yum!

Here's a close up of the tag.  I love using the little pearls as bubbles for this adorable little seahorse!

Card Stock: Whisper White, Soft Sky
Stamps: By The Tide, Express Yourself
Ink: Pistacio Pudding, Soft Sky, Basic Gray
