Thank you for all of the comments you made on Sammi's card a few days ago. I am definitely in summer cardmaking mode and decided to create a variety of cards with the Denami Designs castle stamp and some sandpaper.
I started out by using a sea sponge to dab some acrylic blue and green paints on white tag. When the tag was dry I cut a piece so it measured 4" x 5.25".
As I did a few days ago I stamped some castle images onto sand paper. I also tore some strips of sand paper and adhered them to the layering paper.
Then I fussy cut the sand castles and adhered them to my card.
I used a DieNamics sun to cut my sun, stamped text onto it with an Amuse Artstamp and added a rhinestone brad to it to make it sparkle.
When I attended the CK Conference in Manchester, NH I purchased a variety of brads from the Eyelet Outlet booth. When I attended the Stamp Show in West Springfield, MA a few weeks ago I purchased even more brads from Eyelet Outlet because they are so much fun to use on my cards and gift tags.
I looked through my brad stash and picked out some of the summery ones and added them to my card. They add color and additional texture to my card.
Have a great day!
