Coastal Pines

Hello, Everyone and Happy New Year.  I hope you all have a wonderful year.

Today I am sharing cards I made with the New Release from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps-Coastal Pines.

I really like the cards made with this stamp and they were super easy.  I like the crisp look.   I stamped the sentiment and the image on designer paper and cut mats to attach them to the card base.  The paper is from a pack I ordered from Divinity Designs.  I made the first with the sand and the way the sand swirls on the paper, it reminded me of a sand storm.  Since I liked that, I decided to pull a pice of paper from the pack showing water which I decided it was the ocean.  As far as my little trees can see, all they see is water. 

This is an extra card I made with this set for this week.

Thank you, for coming by today and checking the first cards of the year.
