My friend Judi Kauffman surprised me with a trio of summery cards that use Rubber Dance stamps from the “Retro Beach” sheet.
Judi used Tsukineko Timber Brown StazOn ink to stamp the shells on White Iris Shimmer Sheetz. Using the same ink, she stamped the mesh, image with mother and child, and Anne Morrow Lindberg quote on Worldwin Paper’s ColorMates Smooth & Silky 90# White cardstock.
The two dotted backgrounds are Yellow and Blue Iris Shimmer Sheetz embossed with Lots of Dots Folder (Shimmer Sheetz and folder from Elizabeth Craft Designs), lightly sanded to bring out the white core of the Shimmer Sheetz and tone down a bit of the sparkle.
Cardstock pieces and the shipping tag were sponged with Ranger Adirondacks Brights in Sailboat Blue and/or Sunshine Yellow. She used Prismacolor pencils to color the water and sky on the card with mesh background. All three Kraft Brown card bases measure 5” x 7”. The little yellow bubbles are die-cut from Yellow Velvet Adhesive sheets (also from Elizabet Craft Design).
All the rubber stamps used on these cards are from the sheet BM1-L Retro Beach,
and they are also available as individual stamps: rubberdance.com/beach.html

Thank you, Judi! It's always such a thrill to see how other people use my stamps! I love the cards and I think the dotted Shimmer Sheetz look really cool. (I don't have a dotted embossing folder - gasp! I need dots!)
