Welcome to the July North Carolina Stampin' Up! Demos Blog Hop. This month we are celebrating all things summer -- and there sure is a lot to celebrate.
Going to the beach is a very summery thing to do and so my card today features an octopus. Unless you SCUBA, or sadly, see one washed up on the shore, you'll probably never see an octopus on your beach trip, but it's there hiding in the ocean depths.
I've used several products from the Tranquil Textures Suite - Sea of Textures stamp set, Under the Sea framelits, Tranquil Textures 8-1/2" X 11" Cardstock Pack, and Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP). I also used Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig, and Whisper White Cardstock; Basic Rhinestones; and Night of Navy and Fresh Fig ink.
I like to put a little something on the inside of my cards, even when I don't have a sentiment. For this card, I put the octopus. It's stamped off, so basically, after I stamped the image for the front of the card, I just stamped it again on the inside without re-inking. This would also be great to do on the envelope.
Selected packs of Designer Series Paper (DSP) are on sale in July - Buy 3, Get 1 Free. The Tranquil Textures DSP used on today's card is one of the ones on sale. See details and get yours here.
