Waltzingmouse Stamps/Crafting Ireland Guest Feature

Good morning! Today I have a Waltzingmouse Stamps guest post over on Crafting Ireland. I created a fun beach scene using the My Island stamp set. 

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps My Island
Distress Inks - Frayed Burlap, Mustard Seed & Spiced Marmalade
Black Ink
Patterned Papers
Embellishments - Seashells & Fishing Net
3D foam dots

To create your scene first stamp out the background with Mustard Seed

Then stamp the sunset with Spiced Marmalade on top

And finally add your palm tree island with black ink. 

I created a shadow on the palm trees by offsetting with Frayed Burlap distress ink.

Design your card base deciding where you want to place your image. Cut a piece of fish net a little larger than your image and adhered into place with hot glue. 

Because the fish net is quite thick you will need to double up on 3D foam dots. 

Adhere your image onto the card front. I added a little more fishnet offcuts to the left of the image. 

Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of coordinating card and rip across the bottom. Adhere it just slightly under the image. Finally, hot glue some seashells around the card. 

This set contains many more elements for creating scenes. It would also be ideal for scrapbooking your vacations, family BBQs, creating invitations and other greeting cards. You can also avail of the My Island cut files, which you can find HERE

Have a great day!
