Stamps Used: 
- Beach More
- Sudsy Stuff - not a new release
TJ Products Used:
- Kaisercraft Gel Pens
Other Products Used:  Memento Ink (Tuxedo Black, Bahama Blue); Distress Oxide Ink (Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio); Colored Pencils; Steel Die; Basics*

After stamping the sudsy background, I used a die to cut an oval which was the perfect size for the image stamp. I stamped Beach More on the card base and colored in the image with colored pencils and Glitter Gel Pen accents. The die cut panel was attached using foam tape to give the card a little dimension and make the image a focal point.

Stamps Used:

Other Products Used: Memento Ink (Rich Cocoa); Colored Pencils; Lucy's Cards Jewels; Basics*

After stamping the two images, I lightly drew a pencil rectangle around them, leaving it slightly smaller than the extended pieces. I then trimmed out the piece leaving a few pieces outside of the cut rectangle. It was colored with colored pencils and accented with Gel Pens and Glitter Gloss. A few jewels were added, then it was attached to a pink panel and adhered to the kraft card base.

Stamps Used:
Other Products Used: Versamark Ink, Black Embossing Powder, Watercolor Paints

This was a fun card to do...and a great guy card! There are four different sentiments that come with the image, so there is a lot of versatility. I began by stamping the image and sentiment with Versamark and then heat embossed with black embossing powder. I created the remainder of the scene using watercolor paints. Once dry, I trimmed the panel down and mounted it on a black card base. I love how striking that sunset is with the black elements!

I absolutely LOVE navy blue and gold for nautical cards! This would be another great guy card. And it was easy to do...what more could you want! I began by stamping the mosaic on navy cardstock with Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. The panel was then trimmed down. On a strip of gold vellum, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink and clear embossed it. Using a Gel Pen, I overlined the sentiment. The vellum panel was then folded around the panel and attached on the back so no glue spots would show. I added a few glitter jewels, adding glue under the larger ones for added tacking down of the vellum panel. The panel was then attached to a kraft card base.

I love the image in this card. The fish are plain so you can create any type of fish your mind imagines! How fun is that? I stamped the image with Versamark and heat embossed in a dark green. Using Tombow markers, I colored in the image, then added a little sparkle with glitter gel pens. I stamped the sentiment with Memento Ink (Nautical Blue). I gave the entire panel a shimmer using Shimmering Bliss Topper spray, and added some clear bubbles and splashes with Jewel Drops (Clear). I added a dark blue panel and attached it to a pink card base. I like how the card base complements the pink in the coral and the blue makes the fish even more striking.

So many wonderful cards! You made it hard to pick a favorite, but the Born to Fish card really caught my attention--such beautiful, vivid colors, and I need some masculine cards. Thank you for sharing all of these.
