Have a Beautiful Day

I absolutely fell in love with the stamp set from the My Monthly Hero June kit - and really so did everyone else as it sold out in literally hours.

Thanks to a very kind and sweet crafty friend, I was able to get my hot little hands on the stamps/dies.

The multi-step ocean stamps are so easy to use and what a gorgeous effect!  They are very user friendly and do not require great precision at all!

I stamped them using three shades from Altenew's Sea Shores ink collection - Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake, and Lagoon.

The clouds are also multi-step.  I stamped the solid layer using Fairy Dust ink (this is a very light ink, so I stamped twice deepen the color), and then for the highlights, used Volcano Lake in second generation.

To finish things off, I chose a sentiment from Hero's You're So Lovely set which was embossed using their new Sand embossing powder.  I'm totally in love with this powder!  It is so pretty!  I have another embossing powder that has some really pretty glittery bits in it, but it embosses more flat/less dimensional.  I love how this has the sparkle, but still the puffiness/dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!  Just one sleep til the weekend!
