You're Swell

Hello friends! How are you all doing with the time change today? I will be the first to admit it took me a while to get with it but here I am a couple of hours in and I'm finally perking up a bit.

Today I have something different to share with you - a card I made with some new Paper Smooches stamps. My friend Wendy loves them and I thought I'd get a couple of sets and try them out. How cute are these little sea creatures? I have a particular afinity to the wee crab because I am a Cancer. Water babies unite! :)

I started out with a sky blue card base and then spent a lot of time cutting baker's twine to make the sea and the little seashore. I stamped and cut out the whale and crab, stamped the sentiment and added some felt clouds and a vintage button "sun."

I'm looking forward to playing with some other new stamps very soon. Come back to my blog on Wednesday for a fun announcement and a giveaway!

Supplies: Stamps - Surf and Turf (Paper Smooches), Twine (Divine Twine), Cardstock - Soft Sky, Real Red, Crumb Cake (SU!), Silver Pearl (Cor'dinations), Felt/Cloud Die (PTI), vintage button, Ink - Basic Black, Chocolate Chip (SU!), foam squares


  1. Oh, cool, it's up already! Hi hi, love it that you were convinced in buying some sets! I'm curious which more you purchased, but will maybe see that later this week?! I loooove the way you used the twine! Perfect for the sea and sand and love the way that and the clouds and the sun add so much texture to the card! It's perfect, dear Jen! And thanks for mentioning me, I like that! :-D
    All the best, hope you will be all used to the time difference soon!
    Hugs, Wendy
