For our Blog Hop this month we were challenged to use something from the January – June Mini catalogue or the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.
I decided to use the Sand and Sea suite for this challenge and to create something suitable for a 12 X 12 frame. Instructions for creating this sampler are available by clicking on the picture below.
The background paper is Sahara Sand and I used Versamark to stamp a random sea pattern to add interest. I used the large sea-side shell die on the Pearlescent Speciality paper, embossed it and cut the shells and some of the seaweed out. I then used Gold embossing powder to highlight some of the shells.
I sponged some of the die pieces with Seaside Spray, Granny Apple Green and Blushing Bride. I then embellished the items with pastel pearls and some Opal rounds. The sentiment was stamped in Misty Moonlight and the Bible verses were printed off on Very Vanilla. The elements were layered on then placed on the DSP which was, in turn, backed by Basic Gray.
This was fun to make and was surprisingly quick to assemble! I hope you like it!!!

Absolutely gorgeous, Elizabeth! I’ve never done a sampler before but you might just have inspired me to try! Love that suite too. It’s so fun!
This is only the third one that I have done. I don’t do a lot but had inspiration yesterday to have a go at this and hoped I could accomplish it before it was due to post!! Left it a little late, but it didn’t take long.
This is gorgeous Elizabeth.
Thanks Nikki. It was fun putting it together and getting those creative juices flowing!!
That’s stunning Elizabeth.
Thank you Melissa. I had a thought yesterday about doing something like this but didn’t know if I could achieve it in the time left before posting!!!
A gorgeous sampler Elizabeth. So lovely.
Thanks Sharon. I really enjoyed making it!!
Oh Wow! This is just gorgeous! That pearlescent paper is perfect for the seashells
It is. I also was able to used the Frost White shimmer ink/rubbing alcohol
to add sparkle to the vanilla card stock!!
Elizabeth, this is stunning.
