Hi everyone! I am so excited to help Newton’s Nook Designs celebrate 5 years!! Jennifer and Jeff, the owners of Newton’s Nook are so sweet! This beachy release is adorable, and I obviously LOVE it 😉

For those who don’t know, I live on Cape Cod and am a total beach bum. We also have had a large showing of Great White Sharks in the area, which by the way is a good thing! It means our ocean is healthy and thriving!
Anyways, I think this Shark Frenzy set is such a fun set!! I used Distress Oxides in Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, and Salty Ocean to color the background. I also stamped the image and Copic colored one of the sharks, fussy cut him out and layered him over the image.
Ok, I COULD NOT wait to make Mister Harley a mermaid! Ha! Do you think he makes a cute mermaid?
Using the new Purr-maid Newton stamp set – I created a fun ink smooshed background with the same Distress Oxide colors, and Copic colored/die-cut out the images. I added Prisma glitter for a little sparkle.
For the sentiment, I created a banner with some scrap patterned paper and a skewer, I thought this was a cute embellishment for the card. Chunky glitter is my favorite, especially for the sea floor!
This was a super simple card to create, but I really love how it turned out. I used the new Vitamin Sea mini stamp set. Also, using the same Distress Ink colors, I watercolored a pretty ocean at the top of my card. I like to lay color down, heat set it, and then lay another layer of ink on top. I did this several times for more layers. For the sentiment, I inked the stamp in multiple Distress Oxide Inks (Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers). I stamped the sentiment, and then added some prisma glitter to the shells and water droplets.
Hope you enjoyed my beach inspired cards 🙂 Be sure to check out all of the other inspiration!
