I loved the idea and thought it would look super cute with some punched fish.
I sponged the embossed lines with Wild Wasabi ink to create the seaweed. I really think that this card turned out cute and love the idea for the seaweed. It is always amazing to me to see all of the different ways one product can be used in ways other than its original intended use.

Paper: Marina Mist, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Basic Black

All of the cards and envelopes fit in a box and in the box is an Important Dates reminder card so that the “Attentive Man” can keep track of the important things (as long as he remembers to look!) All of the instructions for the class as well as a pdf for the Important Dates card and the box lid label can be found at Ustamp with Dawn and Friends!! Classes, Camps and Clubs.Pin It Now!

I finally have something I can show you. I have really been struggling over the last two weeks with my stamping. The first week, I spent every night at my desk trying to create something, but nothing ever materialized in my head. It was pretty depressing. Then I started looking at some blogs for ideas and thought I came up with something, went to my stamping desk and nothing. But my two little girls went down for a nap early and at the same time, so I had some time this morning and I figured I would try to stamp again, and I created something. I am so excited to have something to share even though I am not completely, entirely happy with it.
Above is the sketch for the Diva Coffee Break Designs challenge for this week. I used my favorite stamp set from the Summer Mini. It was just one of the ones that as soon as I saw it I knew I had to get it no matter what. I love the combination of solid and line art images. I am not 100% sure on the color combo now that it is done. When I was trying to pull out colors to start with they looked great together, but maybe I used too much of the Daffodil, it just isn't sitting perfect, but I am so happy to have created something decent.
I am off to go try some more stamping while the girls are still asleep!

I went looking through my pictures of projects that I have already on the computer and of course everything that I have that I could show you uses product from the Occasions Mini Catalog that expired a week and a half ago so for now I am going to show you a challenge. Of course many of you know that it is Diva Coffee Break Designs Wednesday so here is the sketch for this week.
