(This is my Second Post for today if your looking for my Paper Smooches SPARKS Post Please Follow the Link HERE!! THANKS!! =)

I'm here for Day two of the New Paper Sweeties June Release ~ Release Countdown!!
I made a REALLY FUN 3-D Beach Scene Card for today and I just LOVE the way it turned out!! =) I'm using the New Island Time Stamp Set and the Coordinating Island Time Sweet Cuts along with the Let's go to the Beach Stamp Set and the Coordinating Let's go to the Beach Sweet Cuts!! I started by Die Cutting a Front Panel to use as my Focal Image!! I ran it through so that the Palm Tree wasn't cut all the way through and then cut way the Beach on either side!! I then Stamped,  Embossed and Die Cut just the Top of the Palm Tree from some Distress Water Color Paper so I could Water Color the it!! I then Stamped and Embossed the Waves on to the Base Distress Water Color Panel and then I Die Cut one of them for some added Dimension!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sun and Fussy Cut it and then Die Cut some Clouds!! I Inked the Background with some Sea Glass Simon Says Stamp Ink and then used Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks for my Waves!! This is my NEW Favorite Color Combo!! SQUEAL!! Makes me HAPPY!! I Splattered some water and then added some White Ink Drops and some of the Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink Drops for even more interest!! =) I adhered it all together using some Foam Tape and used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker to add some Shimmer and then a Few Crystal Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finish it off!! I wish you could see it in REAL Life because I just LOVE this Card!! Sometimes I feel like the Pictures just don't do them Justice!!
I hope you'll check out the rest of the AMAZING DT Projects for today and leave them some LOVE!
