Take Your #Selfie to the Beach.....

Hello everyone: We are well in April here but there is no signs of Spring, let alone Summer around, it's cold and snowing up  here in Crown Point, IN. I just hope my Tulips and Daffodils are not going to freeze, their green leaves are above ground, poor things, but they are resilient, that's for sure.
Anywho, I have a card to share with you today for the SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge this week, we all want you guys to go to the Beach, even if it's only in your mind.

This image is from a Power Poppy set called Best Day Ever and, as you can see, just looking at it makes you feel warm and dreaming.
I stamped the images on watercolor paper with Versafine black ink and clear heat emboss it, then colored it with SU markers, the hook, keys and camera were fussy cut. The sentiment is from the set.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is also from the set, the shells are from a retired Flourishes set called "Seaside Life"

So I hope you feel inspired to come and play along with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, don't forget to go take a peek at my teammates' blogs and see their fabulous creations.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.


  1. Awesome Beachy collage, love the fussy cut camera it just makes it all perfect. Nice to carry the papers to the inside, and a great sentiment. Our tulips, daffodils and crocus are all popped out of the ground too but they do bounce back. Thursday our temp will shoot up to 19c to confuse them more then down in a bit of a deep freeze again.

  7. So much detail and wonderfully done Maria! Would love to be on a sandy beach right now. Tired of the spring, winter, spring, winter weather in Ohio.

  8. Wow, WOW! Fantastic watercoloring of these very fun, awesome images! Love how you used the two together. So cute the way Marcella put the "hi" on the camera and the "juicy novel" script on the book. Your background looks very sandy. You did an amazing job on this, Maria!!
