My own personal fave is the sentiment – and the gold seashell!
Both are from the new Season of Chic stamps. Once again the versatility of this set made it a must-have for me! Ideal for any time of year! Your winter, spring summer and fall greetings are going to shine when you use this set!
Isn’t that gold seashell just the cat’s pyjama’s for you? The beautiful Gilded Leafing Embellishment gives it tons of gold shine. You can see exactly what it is and how to apply it in this video.

Now what about that label, the focal point of the card?
Stamp your greeting in Pool Party ink and let dry. Next lightly rub your Embossing Buddy (so glad the Embossing Additions Buddy is in the catalogue!) over the cardstock then stamp the seashell with Versamark ink.
Lightly sprinkle your Heat & Stick powder over the ink then heat with your Heat Tool. TIP: Be very careful to not overheat.
Next pat on some of the Gilded Leafing Embellishment and lightly rub it with a larger DRY paintbrush so all the little flakes not stuck to the powder fall off.
Lastly, crop the sentiment and shell with the All That Dies.
