Lily at the Beach Sneak Peek Day 1

Welcome to day one of Lily at the Beach! I know I say this every month, but these stamps are just adorable!
So first up is Lily with her innertube:
I found this Doodlebug Design paper in my stash, it's OLD, but was perfect for this set.
I didn't have yellow dew drops, so I punched 1/4" circles of yellow cs and put the dew drops
on top of them. I also used yellow stickles on the flower centers.
Close-up, I used crystal effects on the tube:
And now Lily riding on her turtle friend:

I cut Lily and Turtle Friend out after I colored the image, and it is popped up on dimensionals.
Isn't that paper cool? I love it! I got a couple designs from this line,
you'll see one later this week.

And another close-up:
Thanks for stopping by, go see what the rest of the team did with Lily! (links on the left)
A big welcome to Tori Wild, this month's guest designer!

Very cute! I love that you used blues and purples on your first card, perfect for the ocean!!

Your second card has such beautiful and bold summer colors. I like how you created the sand for the turtle too!

Well, when the first card came up, thought that it was fab and so cute....but then the second one came up, with all those awesome 'sunny' colors and another adorable image (Lily riding a turtle made me giggle! :>)!! Love all the CE'ing! :>

Tori Wild said...

These are SO cute!! I just love that Cosmo paper and all the shiny accents. Thanks for the warm welcome! :)

Janna said...

Both of these are just so fun and colorful Becky!!! I love that you used the glossy accents and the coloring of course is amazing! The papers though I am drooling over and the idea to put the paper behind the dew drops is a great one! I will definitely have to try that!

Smiles,
janna
