Love my Global Stampin' Sisters!

As the end of the Occasions Catalog offering is right around the corner, I've been pulling out those stamp sets that I haven't used yet.  Oh goodness - I'm embarrassed to tell you how many I have.  

One set that I think is so darn cute is called Just Keep Swimming.  It has gummy bears, monsters, fish, macarons and gems - all in one set!  Interesting, but fun combination.  While I was surfing the web, I came across a card using this set created by Carol, I believe her last name is Richter.  She is from Selb, Germany.  Yes, you read it right - Germany!  I love her style and I just had to attempt to duplicate a card that she made, so here you go!   And, I just couldn't bear to crop out my stamping feline - Marley!!

See - I told you - isn't that just too darn cute!!  So now, how did I step out of my comfort zone?  I pulled out my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and outlined the monsters and hearts.  I also drew the squiggly lines under the hearts and monsters and the three little dots.  Yikes - me and free hand drawing on a card - who would have thought!  Of course, I had to add googly eyes - because, well, I just had to!  I also love the combination of the monsters with the umbrella!  Now seriously, who thinks of these things!?  Carol, of course.  No, I don't know her, but wanted to make sure I gave her credit for inspiring me!!!

Listed below are the products I used to create this card:

Just a reminder that the Just Keep Swimming Stamp and Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder are retiring and are only available while supplies last!!

Happy Stamping,
