I was enjoying this "Just Shellin' " stamp set so much that I made another sneak peek sample. For this one, I was itching to break out my new Nestabilities Dahlia die -- when I saw the turtle in this cute stamp set I knew it would be so cute stamped and framed with the Dahlia dies. This card also satisfies another CDS Design Team Challenge: to create our own Designer Paper, and not to use any other Designer Paper. I created the left and right panels using the glass of pink lemonade that is included in "Just Shellin' " and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers. I also added the sentiment "Just Shellin" overtop each glass of pink lemonade to tie it all in with the main stamped turtle with the pink lemonade glass on his back. I added black zig-zag machine stitching to add some whimsy to the design. Here's the deets:
