I have a bunch of cards/projects to share, so let's get right into it!
my first card uses the ADORABLE Shrimp Cocktail set!

and guess what...I made a shaker!! 
I repurposed the awesome Snow Globe Shaker Die Set to make this fun fish bowl!!
I ink blended with Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Inks, then splattered some water on top!

I also used the Waves Stencil and some white embossing paste to add texture to the background! 
I am in LOVE with the contrast with the reds/pinks of the shrimp and the blues/greens of the fishbowl!! so fun!!

my next card uses the super sweet Newton's Melon mini stamp set, along with the new Edge Stencils to create the grass and clouds!

this is summer on a card! ha!
I die cut a stitched square with the Frames Squared Die set and then ink blended to create the grass and cloudy sky with the new Edge stencils!

I love that kraft background, it really help the heat embossed sentiment pop! oh! I also used some white embossing paste and the Cloudy Sky Stencil to create a little more interest to the card! 

we're still going! are you with me??? ha!
my next card uses the Gull Friends stamp set, and this cracks me up SO MUCH!!

I couldn't help but color up a bunch of these guys and layer them in the water!!! 
I created the water by using the packaging technique and the Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks. once that was dry, I splattered more color as well as white acrylic paint on it.
and once THAT was dry, I mixed some Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink and white embossing paste together to create the waves with the Waves Stencil!

All of the gulls are popped up at different levels!

ok, my last project is a scrapbook page!

LOVE it! I used the new Lemon Twist Stamp Set, as well as the Edge Stencil Set!
I created stripes of color to add to my layout as banners by ink blending with Distress Inks! Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade for one, which I also stamped the sentiments from the set in coordinating colors on, and Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio and the waves edge stencil for the other!

all of the lemons were paper pieced together, and then I added shading with some watercolor markers, just to add a little extra fun!

the top of the layout has a border of the Cloudy Sky Stencil with white embossing paste! I can't ever stop the white on white texture, especially for this fun, summer layout!
I am in LOVE with these colors together!
