Anything Goes with My Creative Time

Welcome back!! It's Anything Goes for My Creative Time but I chose to make a card today!!  I used stamps and dies that were just released because I love them so much!!

I also got my hands on a few of the new Distress Oxide Inks so I was dying to get a little inky!!  To switch things up a little, I decided to make a 4 bar card. This measure 3.75 X 5 inches. I love this size of card as it's a little easier to decorate!

I cut a circle using a die from the Bunch of Fun Circles Dies to create a little tropical scene.  I used Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Dusty Concord Distress Oxide Inks for the sky and Gathered Twigs for the "beach".

To create a bit more interest, I created a mask using one of the dies from the More Stitched Edges Die Set. This resembles clouds. I lightly blended the same ink colours over the background. When that was done, it was time to work on some greenery.

I used the awesome, new Summer Vibes Stamp and Die Set. I love the extra leaf dies that come in this set. I used Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks to blend on some colour!!

I knew this was going to be a clean and simple card but I had an embossing folder that would tie into my design perfectly!  I used it on a white panel that was cut slightly smaller than my card base.

I adhered the leaves on the outer edges of the ink blended circle and snipped off any excess. Then stamped the sentiment directly on the circle. The sentiment is also from the Summer Vibes Set.

I love how the bright colours pop off the white base!!

There is also a couple of tiny heart dies in the Summer Vibes set so I used one of those as well :)

I seriously think this is a must have stamp and die set!!  Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time...stay crafty!!
