Ocean Fusion

 For this week’s Fusion Card Challenge, the inspiration was “Seagull Beach” with this beautiful color scheme…

I used Papertrey Ink’s “Salt Air Collection” for my card….including the “Flora” and “Fauna” stamps and dies, and the coordinating “Salt Air: Sentiments” set.

The background is made with Stampin’ Up’s “Gentle Waves” background stamp using lots of Distress Oxide Inks and my Misti to repeat stamp/blend them.

I just returned from Manahawkin and Long Beach Island in New Jersey (the Jersey Shore!), and I miss it already!

Lakefront Throwdown

 A tricky color scheme this week at the Color Throwdown…black, green, brown, and white! What?! No pink, red, blue, YELLOW?!?! 😂

But I got it done, though, with a nature card using The Greetery’s stamp and dies!

I used “Sitting Pretty,” “Sitting Pretty Accessories,” “Reflections,” a bit of greenery from “Macra-made Fillers,” and a sentiment from “Fresh Air.” I didn’t even cheat, the water is technically a light gray neutral color, haha!  It really is so much fun to go out of your color comfort zone and try something new.

Thanks for stopping by! ❤️
