Bold Seashells
06/21/2024

Hi there!

Today I’m super excited to be participating in a Blog Hop to celebrate the Simon Says Stamp Sunny Vibes Release! 

If you’re following along on the hop you probably got here from Karin Åkesdotter‘s blog – but if not, you can start from the top at the Simon Says Stamp Blog!    

From now until 6/23 at 11:59 pm ET you can use the code HELLO and get an adorable Hello Stamp and Die set FREE with any purchase of $50 or more! Be sure to see the graphic below for how to add the set to your cart – along with a few additional details.

Be sure to leave a comment below (and at each stop on the hop) because Simon is giving away a $25 coupon to one commenter on each blog!  Winners will be posted on the Simon Says Stamp blog on Wednesday, June 26th. If you’re a winner, just email Simon Says Stamp to claim your prize!

For my stop on the hop, I’m sharing this bold and bright seashell card I created using items from this amazing release!  

This card features the Beachcombing Stamp Set with the coordinating dies.  I just love all the bold color on this card!  To get this look, I white heat embossed the images onto watercolor cardstock and then colored them with Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers.  I used the brush markers to create the background for the card as well

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and for joining in on our Hop!  If you’re following along in order, your next stop will be Tracy Ware and I know you won’t want to miss it!  The full list of blogs on the hop today are:

    Hi Jean. Your card so beautiful. I like that you used watercolor for the beach theme. Your are really good at that technique. I love the vibrant colors you chose and the BIG water droplets are a perfect addition.

    Dear Jean –
    Darn it! I had convinced myself that I did not need this Beachcomber set. I’d looked at it, longed for it and then told myself to behave, to remember how my credit card did not need any scorch marks on it. Then I saw this card!! It’s GORGEOUS!!!!!!! TFS –

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
