The Greeting Farm - May Release & Blog Hop

It’s the 15th, and that means the new MAY Stamps are NOW available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store. Our first set, BEACH BUMS, has all the elements to create a relaxing pool or beach-side scene. Next, we introduced a cute jellyfish, adorable octopus, and fabulous squid in the HANDS DOWN set. With summer right around the corner, we couldn't forget about camping and s'mores in the S'MORE FUN set. And finally, the HAPPY TO SEA YOU set showcased more sea fun with an awesome shark and whale, along with additional sea creatures.

I used the awesome Beach Bums stamps and coordinating dies to make my card.  I colored the images with copics and then diecut them.  I created the base of my card by sponging distress inks onto Bristol card for the water and sand.  I used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the sunglasses to make them shine.

Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
Girl's Hair - E44, E43, E42, E41
