Directions:  Cut the paper rectangle from the patterned paper that has a decorative frame.  Trace around the frame with vellum, and cut away the center to make a mask.  Stamp the seashells in the center of the frame with a pale brown ink.  Stamp the sentiment over the shells with a pigment ink. Cut two of the borders from the Flower Pot die set, and line the edges of the stamped image, using foam adhesive.  Stamp the beach chair onto patterned paper, using green ink.  Lightly color the image with colored pencils.  Edge this image with crochet ribbon and pearls.  Attach to card base.  Layer the sentiment frame over the side of the chair paper, using foam adhesive.  Add a button with a paper cord bow to finish the card.

Chalkboard Tag

The chalkboard craze is everywhere - so I thought I would try a tag using this technique.  I started off with a black tag, and stamped the background using Hampton Art's stamp Passage to France.  I really didn't want to add color to this classic look - so I kept all of my diecuts white.  The flower really reminds me of a Cosmo.
