Let's ride the wave!  Do I have any surfers out there?  This looks like a wave to ride, doesn't it?

Today I've used some of the Last Chance Designer Series Paper from the January - June Mini Catalog.  The background is made from the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper.  This is one of my favorites from the collection to use for beautiful backgrounds.  I wish I could make backgrounds like this with my Blender Brushes!

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the wave multiple times with Pool Party Ink.  Since I was stamping on Designer Series Paper (DSP), I wanted to increase the depth of color so that it would show better on the DSP, and the Stamparatus makes it super easy to stamp multiple times in the exact same spot.  I'd never be able to do that without this handy tool.

The White Mat around the Designer Series Paper is another Last Chance product, Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper.  It is absolutely gorgeous!

You can see the shimmer on the Mother of Pearl paper better in the above photo.  I also used it for one of the wave layers.

The third Last Chance Product is the Supple Shimmer Paper.  I used it for another die cut layer of the wave and in my opinion, it is really more of a glitter paper than a shimmer paper.  If you love sparkle, you will love this paper.  This Supple Shimmer collection includes this blue color paper, which is very close to Pool Party, but it also has other iridescent colors in it.  The other color in the collection is Pink and close to Blushing Bride.  Both are very pretty, but if you like them, don't wait too long.  They are on the Last Chance List and are only available while supplies last.

I thought about stamping my sentiment directly on the Designer Series Paper, but I felt like the card needed a little dimension.  However, that Flowering Fields Paper is so pretty, that I didn't want to cover up any of it.  So, I used another scrap of the Flowering Fields Paper to create the sentiment tag.  This is another tag die from the Designer Tags Dies.  On Monday I used a different die from the set.  As a reminder, check it out here.

To finish off the sentiment I added a small bow made with the silver Simply Elegant Trim and added one Basic Pearl.

I hope you have enjoyed our visit to the Ocean this week.  As I've mentioned many times, I love all things water, so these are some of my favorite types of cards to make.  I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments.
