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!!
