Seaside Cards

Hi Crafty Friends!! 

It has been so long since I've posted any artwork on my blog! I've had a very busy month and my poor finger has been causing me some issues too. I've had a hard time designing and crafting with an injured finger! It still causing me some pain but the time off this month has helped! I'm hoping to get back to designing soon! But for now, here are some fun cards I designed last month that I would like to share with you! I've had many ask for the supply list and cricut sizes. I created these pretty cards for my August Creative Club . They will make 3 cards of each of 3 designs. I really love this paper! So sad to see it retire next month! 

These are standard size cards 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".

The sail boat card was embossed in white and sponged with Desert Sand ink.
Everything was sponged in Desert Sand ink.
For the sponging on the cards I cut my sponge in quarters. I then take an elastic and wrap around the end so that it looks like a ball. I dab in ink and sponge lightly to get the color effect I want. 
I love to 3-D my images by using CTMH 3-D foam tape. It gives it more of a popped out look!

Please stop by again soon! I will be posting some new artwork from our new CTMH Inspirations catalog soon! Can't wait for you to see our new products! 

Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you! Please leave me a message if you get a chance! Thanks!

Happy Creating!
