DS134 Surf's Up Card

Today, I want to share a card I created for the Deconstructed Sketch 134 Challenge.
Paper: Surf's Up (retired), White Daisy CS (CTMH)
Stamp: Under The Sea (retired) (CTMH)
Ink: Chocolate (CTMH)
Tools: Paper-Piercer, Micro-Tip Scissors, Sweet Leaf, Blush, Honey, Crystal Blue Alcohol Marker Sets (CTMH), Circle Stax Die (MFT)
Other: Clear Sparkles (CTMH)

My customers are always asking me how I know what paper and stamp set to use, so here's a little insight as to how I come up with paper and stamp pairings. I started out thinking that I would make this card with flowers, but as I sat staring at my scrap pile, Surf's Up really stood out to me. From there, I saw the blue bubble paper and just knew I had to pair it with my sweet little fishies. 

I have really been enjoying using my new alcohol markers, so I'm sad that I must share the news that they are being discontinued as inventory sells out. I just know CTMH will bring out something even better this summer, so I will console myself with the sets I do have until then. Have a great day!



  1. That paper with the little fishies is too cute!

  2. Very fun colors and card design.
