Sea of Textures bundle - Card Kit by Mail

Do you love the Sea of Textures bundle as much as I do? I live on an island in Puget Sound (Gedney, (Hat) Island, WA) and love my time on the beach. We are having so much fun making these cards in my classes this month.


I have already shown you the 2 cards on the left in previous posts. Here are the close-ups of the cards on the right...




There are SO many Framelits in the set! Coral, Sea Grass, Sand Dollars, Net, Octopus, Star Fish from the centers of the Sand Dollars and even little fish that I haven't had a chance to use! So clever! The coral can also be stamped but I left them plain on my cards.




August Card Kit in the Mail 



Purchase the Sea of Textures stamp set and Under the Sea Framelits Dies Bundle along with the Tranquil Textures Sprinkles and I will send you the paper supplies and PDF instructions needed to complete my 4 cards.  


Please use Host Code: PNBU74XW during checkout.

By spending more than $50 you will also receive a $5.00 coupon code to use on an order place in September! Yay for Bonus Days!!!

Here are some of the many supplies used for these cards. Please click on any link to shop in my online store.





For every $50 in product purchased during August you will receive a coupon code worth $5 to use in September. That is like 10% cash back!

Sea of Textures Sand Dollars


Simple whisper white, copper & texture. Love it!


This is an elegant card and I have left it without a sentiment. It could be used for just about any card giving occasion. 



Did you know that the Copper Trim is a tube and when you cut it apart you get a flat ribbon? Spread it out for a net effect.



Here are the supplies I used. Click on any link to visit my online store.




Happy Stamping!

Spooky-cute Paper Pumpkin Coming Next

Toni & I are waiting for our August Paper Pumpkin kit to arrive but I wanted to tell you about the September kit...


If you love all things Halloween you are going to want to make sure your Paper Pumpkin subscription is active before September 10th! 

It's no surprise that this kit is all about treat packaging but if you are more of a card person a little cardstock is all you need to add to create spooky-cute cards. There are always alternate ideas posted on the Paper Pumpkin blog, FaceBook page and Pinterest page. We even know that Mango Melody, Gorgeous Grape, Pumpkin Pie, and Basic Black are the coordinating colors for the Double, Double Toil & Trouble kit. 

If you already have a Paper Pumpkin account you can log in to increase the quantity and get multiple kits or skip a month if Halloween isn't your thing.

New subscribers - please click here to create an account!




Remember - August = Bonus Days!



For every $50 in product purchased during August you will receive a coupon code worth $5 to use in September. That is like 10% cash back!
