Pretty Cute Stamps July 2016 Digital Stamps New Release!

Thanks so much for joining us for the July 2016 Digital Stamp Release Blog Hop, where we are all sharing projects featuring the new digital stamps this month that are now available in the Pretty Cute Stamps Store.

If you came from the Pretty Cute Stamps blog, you are in the right place. If you just stumbled across this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Cute Stamps Blog

For my project for the hop, I've used the Beach Babes digital stamp set to create this mixed media card. I love adding dimension and texture to my cards - the bubbly embossing powders I used on the sandy hill (from the Life's a Beach set) and the waves (from the Wave Borders set) definitely add some bling and fun texture. I used a piece of white cardstock as my background, adding a Tim Holtz sunray stencil using yellow Distress Inks. I used the Micro Glaze over the yellow stenciled area so I could then go in with blue Distress Ink without blending the two. 

 I used Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers to colour in my adorable 'Beach Babe' and added a couple tiny beads to her little swimsuit. I just love her cute little flip flops!

The hello diecut is from the Hello Bubbles cutting file over at the PPPR store. I cut off the bubble and added the script directly to my banner where I had printed the Beach Babe sentiment from the digital stamp set.

Inside, I used another sentiment from the set and sponged the edge with Distress Ink.

I used some shiny gold thread to tie through my button, coordinating with the gold sun I created by punching a 1" circle in a piece of paper to create a stencil, adding Versamark Ink and using Gold embossing powder. I glued some tiny yellow and white beads around my sun for an extra bit of bling. The beads and button are from the 28 Lilac Lane collection.

Here's a look at this super cute stamp set!
