Hi Guys!

Today I'm honored to be apart of the Create A Smile Beach Party Video Hop! I'm number 3 on the list, so if you want to start at the beginning You should go to the Create A Smile Blog, there you will also find all the information about the new kit, this is a limited edition kit, when it's sold out it is gone!

For my card today I used a little bit of almost everything in the kit. I had so much fun! Next person on the hop is Laura Bassen.

  2. What a fun stamp set! The stencil is perfect for the background and your card is so cute. Thanks for the video.

  3. Amazing design and super cute clean result!

  4. I love the idea of the white die cut! Such a perfect way to keep the focus on the rhino but still creating a cool scene.
    Have a lovely day, Nicole

  5. This kit and your card are so cute.

  6. Amazing design and super cute clean result!

  7. The more I see this kit, the more I need it! The palm tree is AMAZING!!!

  8. Lovely card, never would have thought to leave the palm tree white - looks cool! :-)

  9. Neat card kit. Love your card...cute Rhino.

  10. Oh wow!!! Your card is absolutely cute! Great video!

  11. you did 2 things that i saw with the die cut i thought were interesting. Die cutting the tree from pattern paper and leaving it white! I love the texture of stamping the sand tone on tone and combining the dies together to make the trunk look like it's in the back.

  12. What an adorable scene you've created. Love this kit!

  13. Great background of sky and water. Love how you created the look with the fun stencil. Your rino is so cute. Especially like the pink goggles. I am very impressed with the white palm tree, great idea :)

  14. Thanks to all the designers for a great video blog hop!!!
    I learned a little something from each one listed below:

    1. Christine- Washi tape guideline for pop up card... Heat gun to remove washi tape. The vellum tip to mute the background. I'm going to make that pop up card!

    2. Amy- Leaving the die cut in the paper to water color. Use a transparency to hold alpha stickers for easy placement. AWESOME!

    3. Marika- when coloring in add "dots" to give Rhino some texture. Adhesive before die cutting. And hiding the trunk by "double" die cutting it with palm die. She also used the transparency trick for her alpha stickers.

    4. Laura - press n seal!!! Cool! She does the alphas with a ruler!

    5. Francine- like the 2nd gen stamping to lighten the color.

    6. Kelly- Misti tip for avoiding multi level stamping look.

    7. Birka- I was very inspired by her popup card. First time I ever saw that in the making.

    8. Vicky- dimensional tricks for the palm tree.

    9. Justine- I totally liked the patterned paper strips idea!!!!

    My favorite piece in the kit is the palm tree die (of course). Oh how I want one!!!!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a kit.

    This was a fun and inspiring hop!

  15. Fun card kit. I'm ready for summer.
