These collections contain everything you need to make a ton of cards. And in case you need some inspiration, it even comes with a PDF download of sample cards complete with instructions.


This new ink is a gorgeous color!
It's a great day!

I have three cards to share with you today.
My first one features:
- Canvas Grunge Background stamp
- Fearless Pursuit stamp set
- Cabana Tiles Die
- Coral Cabana ink

I stamped the card base with the Canvas Grunge Background stamp and versamark ink. I heat set it with white embossing powder and sponged on Coral Cabana ink. The sentiment is from the Fearless Pursuit stamp set and stamped with midnight ink onto a card panel stamped with the Canvas Grunge Background stamp and Coral Cabana ink and then layered onto a piece of midnight card stock with some craft foam. 

The white panel is die cut with the Cabana Tiles Die, each piece adhered to a piece of Midnight card stock and then to the card base.

My next card features:
- Stand Tall stamp set
- Stand Tall dies (add on)
- Cabana Tiles Dies
- Coral Cabana ink

I die cut a piece of white card stock with the Cabana Tiles die and adhered all the pieces onto another piece of white cardstock. I sponged the whole piece with Aquatini, Melon Ice and Coral Cabana inks and added it to a card base with craft foam.

The flamingos are cut from midnight card stock - one adhered directly to the inked panel and one adhered with craft foam. The sentiment is stamped with midnight ink and the edges sponged with Aquatini and Melon Ice ink. The grass is stamped with midnight ink, cut out with the coordinating die and adhered directly to the card panel.

My last card features:
- Cabana Tiles Die
- Fearless Pursuit stamp set
- Good Vibes Borders stamp set
- Coral Cabana ink

This last one is not my usual style and makes me think of The Partridge Family - I watched that show all the time!

I die cut a piece of white and midnight card stock with the Cabana Tiles Die. I adhered the black frame pieces to some white card stock, inked up half of the inside pieces with Coral Cabana ink and adhered them all back into their original positions. Then I cut out each tile, adding some directly to a card panel and some with craft foam after I stamped the sentiment. I added this panel to a piece of white card stock with one of the border stamps stamped down the edge and then added all of it to the card base.

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!
