Coastal Breeze and a Winner!

We have a dual purpose post today!  We are going to going over the inks and paper for the Coastal Breeze collection AND announcing the winner for the Stamp A Month Contest!  What do you say we start with the winner so I don't have to worry about the ladies doing bodily harm to me?  =)

To celebrate the first month of the SAM Club, we had a fun contest to win this fabulous Flip Flop Bunkie Bag courtesy of my mother from Simply Charming Everyday.  It went PERFECTLY with our exclusive Flip Flop stamp this month so it was truly meant to be.   The contest was relatively simple you make as many cards as you can using January's stamps, post those cards to our Facebook Group and get your name in the bucket for each card.  Then I use all of this calculated algorithms aka my husband and he pulls a name out of my cute little bucket.

I am happy to announce that he worked flawlessly and he picked a single name!

Congratulations, Miss Salima!  Your Bunkie Bag will be coming to you today and you should have a fabulous little bag to keep all of your Stamp A Month goodies in them!  Salima posted a couple of cute cards, but this is my favorite.

Super Cute and Simple
 Isn't this just the cutest?  I love the simplicity of it and how bright it is.  I also love the sand!  Way to go, Miss Salima and I hope you enjoyed the first month of our Stamp A Month Club!

If you haven't signed up for the Stamp A Month Club yet, I highly encourage you to do so.  We only have 2 more sets left for January and we are getting ready to ship out February here in a few days!  This year's theme is Coastal so all of the exclusive stamps will be in that theme.  Speaking of which, what do you say we head on into our new Ink Bites and the Coastal Breeze Collection!?!

I am not much into subtle colors, but this set has me DROOLING!!!!  They are soft colors that remind me of the inside of sea shells.  I used to collect shells when I was little and there is just something so calming and soothing about all of the colors and how smooth the insides of them are.

The Coastal Breeze Collection consists of: Soft Sorbet, Caribbean Coral, Mellow Mint, Mermaid Mist, Wave Whisper and Egyptian Sand.

For this card, I used Soft Sorbet, Mermaid Mist, Mellow Mint and Egyptian Sand.  I originally was on the hunt to find an ink that would match Bazzill's Robin's Egg Card Shoppe paper and I was giddy with glee to have found one!

  5. Awesomeness!! Congratulations Salima. You deserve it. Simply ADORE that shaker card. Woo Hoo!! <3

    1. PS: Salima did you use real sand or a substitute? Inquiring minds want to know in case we want to case your card and all it's awesomeness.

    2. I think I might have already asked this question and I think you might have said seed beads. Is that right?


Woo hoo! Comment time! I totally do a little happy dance every time a new one pops up!
