For my card today, I am using the super fun Shore Lucky stamp set. This is my favorite stamp set from the release and it's a smaller set so the price point is great.

I love the images in this set and how easy they make it to create a fun beach or water scene. I am also using the Waves & Clouds dies and the Sun & Cloud dies.

I started my card by creating a panel with some alcohol inks in various shades of blues. I used the Waves & Clouds dies to cut this panel out and then set them aside. I just love how the wave die adds the great pierced detail.

I stamped the palm tree from the Shore Lucky stamp set and used some mini ink cubes to apply various colors to the palm tree. I also stamped the whale tale and added a bit of coloring to it. I love that the stamp set also comes with the water droplets. 

I added a bit of light blue ink shading to  my white panel to mimic the look of sky. I then stamped the seagull images from the Shore Lucky stamp set in various places. I finished off the card by adding in some clouds from the Sun & Clouds die set. I love that this die collection has plain clouds along with stitched clouds. I used a combination of both on my card.

It was at this time that I realized I didn't have a sentiment for my card. I decided to stamp one of the fun sentiments from the Shore Lucky set onto a piece of coordinating blue card stock. I added it onto my wave portion and now this card is complete.

Have you all shopped yet for the new release? Aren't there so many fun products available? All perfect for summer card making and scrapbooking. I've really enjoyed working with these products and I've got a couple more cards to share using them later this month.

Hop along and leave a comment so you could win!
