Let your imagination sail away with the Wherever You Go and Swirly Bird stamp sets, plus the beautiful Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack!
Debbie must have known how much I was enjoying the seaside life – very unlike Colorado – because she created a stunning and serene card for the tutorial project this month. The Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack is my personal favorite of all the papers. Love the colors, the patterns, the photo images – if it goes on backorder it may be my fault – I love it that much. This card with its serene ocean scene is rich in texture and design.
The compass & seagull images in the Wherever You Go stamp set create texture and style with the sail boat from the Swirly Bird stamp set.
The Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack is filled with photo and watercolor-styled patterns and textures that you’ll love to combine.
