Greetings friends. For the first day of the July product release, I would like to share a couple of beach-themed cards. They both use the new Long Time No Sea clear set that looks like this:

I really love these designs for coloring! To make the first card, I stamped by bird and sand using black Memento ink. I colored everything with Copic markers and dotted my Copic markers under the bird to give an impression of sand. I added a sentiment from the set to a die cut speech bubble and popped it up with some foam tape.

One of the things I love about the new release are the papers. In particular, I love the cool and warm watercolor paper packs.

For my first card, I layered some of the cool watercolor paper in the background. I even used one of the pieces of paper and overstamped the watercolor paper with the Rolling Waves cover a card background and Navy ink.

This is what the Cool watercolor pack looks like:

Aren't the colors yummy?

For my second card, I once again colored by bird and sand using Copic markers. This time, however, I stamped a shell background in chocolate ink on top of paper from the Warm Watercolors paper pack. For both cards, I used Impression Obsession inks to stamp on the patterned paper. I have found that they dry nicely on the papers even though the papers have a coating to them. This is what the warm pack looks like:

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you will stop by again tomorrow for more samples. Also, Don't forget about the amazing die sale over at IO!
