Life's a BEACH

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by!
Have you been enjoying the fabulous sneak peeks going on over at Peachy Keen Stamps?  This new release is just amazing..Kathy, our fearless leader, has done it again!

Today is the last day of sneak peeks and the Peachy Keen Stamps Release Party will be tomorrow night (Wed, June 5th) at 6:00 CDT.  So...before the party gets started, let me share another little sneak peek with you.....

* All stamps used in this project are from the Peachy Keen Stamps new June Stamp of the month club (PKSC-18).
* I came across this fun Shovel Slider Card at SVG Cutting Files and I knew it would be the perfect background for these fun summer stamps.
* After cutting and assembling my slider card, I stamped the sentiment "Life's a Beach" onto the pull out portion of my card.
* I stamped the "Fun in the Sun" sentiment onto a piece of Kraft paper and covered it with some coarse glitter for some sparkle and shine.
* A few stitching lines with my white gel pen and a pretty blue bow finished up this part of my card.
* In this picture, you can see how the slider portion of the card fits into the little pocket.
* I made some "sand" by hand cutting 2 strips of Kraft paper and covering it with glitter.
* The sand castle was stamped onto Kraft paper and I inked up the edges and added a few sprinkles of glitter. Then, I used pop dots to add it to my card.
* The starfish is colored with Copic markers and I added a few dots here and there using an Atyou Glitter Pen in Gold.

* The cute beach ball was colored with my Copic Markers then covered with 2 coats of Glossy Accents.  I love the way it shines!

Well, that's my last sneak peek for you this month!  I hope you can join the Peachy Keen Designers at the Release Party tomorrow night at The Peachy Keen Connection.  There will be fun, inspiration, games and prizes...you don't want to miss it!  Unfortunately, I will miss the party (insert sad face here).  This week is our VBS program at church and I will be helping out and watching my grandkids enjoy themselves (insert smiley face here)!  So, I'll miss you all, but I'll be seeing you soon!
Until next time,

  10. It does look great! But I don't understand the "sliding" part. Does any part of the card slide? It looks like there are 2 parts, but they don't seem to be connected in any way.
