Beach Bum Blog Hop Challenge

Our final set this month is another FABULOUS creation from Torio. Made to coordinate perfectly with the previously released Make A Splash stamp set, this set if perfect for not only making cards, but scrapbooking your family vacations, and summer beach trips!

Beach Bum is a 6x8 set that includes a total of 19 stamps and will sell for $24.00.

 

Would you like to win the new Beach Bum stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post.

You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday, July 28th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.

I wanted these cute little kiddos with their beach bums sticking out to be my main focus so I created a one layer card and had the background be more muted. Images were stamped onto white cardstock, colored with Prismacolor pencils, cut out and adhered to the cardbase using dimensionals. The sheer satin edged ribbon, natural jute twine and button are all from RibbonCarousel.com.

I also created this downloadable Tips and Tricks page to show you fun ways to use this set and how it can be used in combination with another TSG stamp set!

I just found your blog. Love it! What color is the background ink? In some previous cards you have stamped on kraft with momento sahara sand. I can't find momento inks? I only find memento inks and from them I can't find sahara sand. They have desert sand. Is that the same? I just love the combination of kraft and that color.
