Sugarplums Beach Kit Preview Day 1

Welcome to a preview of a special mid-month release of a Sugarplums Beach Kit sold only at All That Scraps. The kit is a set of nine stamps which includes four Sugarplum girls in various poses and is the usual beautifully deep etched red rubber. The set comes attached to gray ez-mount foam, ready to be cut out. As an added bonus the kit is 20% off May 17-31. After the 31st the kit will revert back to regular price. 

I love the beach so I was thrilled to work with these cute images. I started out by stamping five images from the kit, coloring with Copic Markers. I paper pieced a portion of the umbrella, attaching the top piece with dimensional dots. After fussy cutting the images, I attached to a Side Step card base (instructions at Splitcoast Stampers). I did reverse it so that the main panel was on the right rather than the usual left. As you can see, the sand, the sea and the sky are represented. And yes, my sand is white. Our beaches on the gulf coast are "sugar white" and so very beautiful. I used one more small stamp from the kit - the grains of sand on the beach, stamping very lightly with Memento Sand ink. The sentiment is from the AmyR Be Happy set.
