The Blog Hop starts here. You should have come to me from Ro Donner's blog.

Of course all of my stamps for this blog hop are Technique Junkie stamps. For this first card I used Palm Trees and Kisses the Shoreline. I used the MISTI to stamp the palm trees. I used markers to add color to the stamp, and kept stamping different areas over and over until the image was fully inked. Then I cleaned the stamp well and added Versamark ink several times and then covered the palm trees with clear embossing powder and heat set it.  Then I sponged ink for the ocean, and the sky. I used a mask to ink the sun, and covered the sun with a mask to create the sky. Finally the verse was stamped over the sky and heat embossed. 

For my second card I used Octopus Face, Seagrass, and Seashell borders.  I stamped the seashell border first. Then I stamped a mask of the border. Then I stamped the sea grass over the seashell border. Then I cut the octopus and the verse apart so they could be used separately. The octopus and the seagrass were stamped with Momento ink and everything (except the octopus) was colored with Copic markers. The Octopus was painted with  Twinkling H2Os. I stamped a second image of the seagrass on transparent vellum. After coloring the seagrass with Copic markers, I ran it through my Xyron machine. Then I cut out the image and cut it into 2 pieces. Then the vellum pieces were adhered to the two sides of the card. Doing this creates an illusion of depth.

For my third and last card, I used an older but beautiful stamp called Old Pier, and the verse is from Sea Shells.

The beach, ocean, and sky were all sponged. The sun was masked.  
The next stop on our blog hop is with the gifted Beth NormanNow hop on your way!

Absolutely beautiful cards! You are amazing at creating scenes! I have to say you have made the best octopus face card so far on the hop too! Oh, before I forget, the link to your site from the Technique Junkies post is wrong. If you click your name, it goes to Ro's site. I got here from the link in her post. If your traffic is low today you'll know why.
