Beachy Waves - Simon Says Stamp Good Vibes Release

Good morning! I'm back to share more cards today using some goodies from the NEW Simon Says Stamp Good Vibes Release - paired up with a few older stamps and dies as well!

All of these cards feature the fabulous new background stamp from Simon Says Stamp called Beachy Waves - I hadn't had a chance to play with this stamp yet when I was preparing for the blog hop, and WOW! When I pulled it out to play I was hooked and ended up making these 3 cards - and I had to stop myself from creating more backgrounds with them! Sooo fun! Basically for each background, I set the huge 6x6 stamp set down on my desk upside down, inked it up with several different colors of distress oxide ink, misted slightly, then pressed the smooth side of some Tim Holtz watercolor paper onto the top of it - when I pulled the paper up I was left with these amazing and magical backgrounds! I then embellished with a mix of older and newer sentiments, and a few critters from Under the Sea (from a recent SSS release).

First up, for this card I used fairly literal color interpretations for my background - Fossilized Amber, Salty Ocean, and Cracked Pistachio. I added a sentiment from an older SSS card kit - It's No Secret, heat embossed a tiny sentiment from a CZ Design stamp set called Hello You on a strip die cut with SSS Stitched Banners Dies, and then added the cute turtle from Under the Sea. Does this make you think of the turtles from Finding Nemo?!?!? Haha!

For this next one I went with a bright and summery - kind of tropical - color combination! I used Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Rasberry, and Peacock Feathers. I added a sentiment from and older SSS stamp set called Oh Happy Day, and the cute crab from Under the Sea.

Finally, this color combo - Worn Lipstick, Seedless Preserves, and Broken China! This one I added a sentiment from another Good Vibes Release - Vacation Time. That little starfish is, again, from Under the Sea, and I added another sentiment from the same stamp set heat embossed on a little banner die cut with SSS Basic Banner Dies.

I finished off by adding some gold splatters with my Starry Colors Palette. I also added tiny wiggly eyes on each of the cute critters - because wiggly eyes are ALWAYS cute, right?

If you didn't grab this stamp from the release - you may want to go nab it now! This one is seriously fun - and perfect for summer! Which color combo is your favorite?!?!?
