PKS-Think Spring Challenge

Hello everyone! This weeks Let's Face it Friday challenge over at PKS is- Think Spring. Well, the weather here is snowy and cold, so I am going to *think*... Spring Break! I would love to vacation somewhere warm and on a beach--maybe, Hawaii :) I made a card set featuring the cartridge Life's a Beach. I think the cards turned out super cute :)

I used the large Critter Faces stamp set for the sharks eye.
After *hiding* the sharks eye, I used the turkey eye for my shark eye. 

I also used the new sentiment set, Furry Friends by 
Scrappy Moms Stamps. 
Again, I used the hide contour feature on my Gypsy to *hide* the fish 
eyes and then stamped a single eye with the 
PKS-755 Critter Faces Set Large.
I used the *turkey* face stamp, inked one eye at a time, and then
 turned them upside down. I added some fun stitching with my sewing machine
for a 
cool border. I created the ocean floor with a Fiskers border punch.
I added some ink on the edge for a little extra color.
I used glossy accents for the eyes.

The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms stamp set- Amusing Animals.
This is the first time I've ever  created a *wave* with a sentiment and
an acrylic block-super easy and cute!
The bubbles are by Prima.
These are the *turkey* eyes that I used. I ink and stamp
 one eye at a time, making sure I don't get any ink on the 
eyebrow. I added white to the eyes with my 
white Signo pen.
  • Life's a Beach cartridge pg.55
  • 3 1/4" shark and layer (I used my Gypsy to *hide* the eyes)
  • LAB cartridge pg.54
  • 2 3/4"  octopus and layer
  • LAB cartridge pg.53
  • 3 1/2 fish 1 and layers
I snapped a picture for you from our deck, and it's still snowing. Here's hoping I get to Hawaii sooner rather than later!
