Just Keep Swimming!

Happy Fourth of July! I thought I’d share a fun little summer holiday card today! This one goes in the mail tomorrow! ❤

For this card, I used Ellen Hutson’s Beach Lady (and the coordinating dies HERE), Pattern Play, and the sentiment from Mermaid’s Tail.

I colored the crabs blue with Copic Markers and stamped the little pattern with a bit of an ombre-like look. I think this card screams summer! So fun! 🙂

Have a great and safe holiday!! 🙂

Take care– Jill 🙂

Ellen Hutson’s New June Release!

Today, there is a fun NEW RELEASE from Ellen Hutson! eeeeeep! The Leading Ladies are quite lovely. When I saw the cute little accessories and little stamps Brandi Kincaid included in the sets, I found myself repeatedly stamping them. ❤This tiny little crab received all my attention in the newly released ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN DESIGNER DIES, LEADING LADIES – BEACH LADY BY BRANDI KINCAID! Ha! Such a fun summery set! 🙂

How cute is this little crab?!! And I am a HUGE fan of Brandi’s other new set, ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN CLEAR STAMPS, PATTERN PLAY BY BRANDI KINCAID. Such sweet and playful little backgrounds! 🙂

I colored him with Copic Markers. ❤

Here’s another crabby card:

This one is so beachy!! 🙂

Let’s Sea Where the Wind Takes Us! ❤

And of course, I had to have a crab with the cute googlies! 🙂 Again, I used another background from the afore mentioned set. I think I used all of them? LOL

And lastly, I decided to let the cute little crab rest, and bust out all the beachy accessories. 🙂

Again, I colored all these with Copic Markers too. To polish it off, I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear confetti bits and some stitching.

I’m looking forward to mailing out these lil’ summer hellos!

Be sure to check out all the fun new products released today over at Ellen Hutson HERE! Have a great Sunday!

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care– Jill 🙂
