May Blog Hop and Shop

Welcome to the MFT May Blog Hop and Shop. If you just came to my blog and want to start at the beginning, hop on over to Kim's blog. If you came here from Cindy's blog you are in the right place.

For my project I used the new, and oh SO cute Pure Innocence stamp, Beach Bum. My niece is coming to stay for a few weeks this summer, and this is the cover of the mini album I plan to make for her when she is here, and living in San Diego it all about the beach!

I covered a 8x8 piece of chipboard and rounded the corners. I made the sand by tearing kraft card stock and distressing it with distressing inks.

I used the new Die-namic Jumbo Scallop Die to make the waves. If you look at the die cut you can see how when the scallops are cut out you have perfect waves. I added VersaMagic Chalk Ink to the tips of the waves. I use the new Die-namics Cloud Trio Die to make my clouds on the cover.

Then I colored, paper pieced and cut out the images included in the stamp set and tucked them in the sand.
I also added a little glitter here and there. I used chipboard letters to spell out summer, and stamped on of the sentiments included in the Beach Bum set in one of the clouds. I finished the album cover off with MFT Perfect Plaid Ribbon.

This has been such a fun release! Hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have! Now it is time to hop on over to the extremely talented and SO creative Mel's Blog.
