Now let's take a look at some projects Libby created with this month's kit!
I've made a couple of fun and simple cards using the items from the kit. For this first card, I stamped the three-step Color Layering water using Soft Sky, Summer Sky and Deep Ocean - all included in the kit. The inks would also make lovely ink-blended skies, but I went the quick and easy route and applied Summer Sky direct-to-paper until I had good coverage for my bright, blue sky. For the clouds, I die cut them from Radiant White paper using the included Frame Cuts dies, and then stamped just one of the two cloud layers of each size in the included Soft Granite ink.
I used a marker to color in my sand, then used the fabulous sand embossing powder to heat emboss those adorable feet in the sand. Life really IS better with sandy feet, don't you think?
Another quick and easy card that's a breeze to make with the stamps and dies in the kit features the adirondack chair image. I stamped it in two of the colors included in the kit - Summer Sky and Deep Ocean - and die cut them. Then I simply lined them up and attached them to my card, leaving a space for the message.
Mounting them all with foam tape gives a lot of fun dimension to the card. And again, a perfect message from the kit - sitting on one of these chairs, looking out at the sea, really is my happy place!
