Besides BasicGrey, one of my favorite scrapbooking companies is My Mind’s Eye. Weathered looking paper, hip embellishments and terrific color combinations bring a whole new emphasis to a themed package. One of MME’s newest line called “Breaking Free”, has a bunch of mini collections all in-line with the main theme. The mini collection that I worked with this month at Cherry Blossom Studio was entitled Cowabunga “oh so very cool”. How fun is that?? Full of great orange and teal tones, this paper brings you right to the beach with the surf lapping at your toes! Grab your surfboard, we’re leaving!

I just think these faeries are too cute! Heather at Faerie Song Art Stamps has a great variety of pixies, faeries, dragons, wizards, mermaids and goddesses to suit any fantasy themed stamp fanatic. I created this card for a theme of the month 1:1 card swap on the Florida Stampers Yahoo group – I hope my partner likes it!

Using Copics and PK Glitz embossing powder with Faerie Song Art Stamps made this card come together nicely.
