I have a video for my cards that I created using this kit that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.


I have a lot to share and most of it is explained in my video so I will be giving you just some brief information on the cards.

This background was created with Pool Party and Key Lime Fizz Reactive Inks. I added rays coming from the top by lightly blending on Unicorn Pigment Ink with the Sun Background Stencil.

The Heroscape was stamped using Tide Pool, Antigua and Rose Madder inks from Hero Arts.

I have the Frame Cut in the background that is cut from Pebble cardstock and I sprayed with White Iridescent Shimmer Spray.

Next is a background created with Key Lim Fizz, Pool Party and Blue Raspberry Reactive Inks. I added the rays coming from the bottom this time using the Sun Background Stencil and Unicorn Pigment Ink.

My Frame cut is die cut from Adriatic cardstock which ties in perfected with my Heroscape I stamped.

I used Tide Pool, Deep Ocean and Rose Madder for the Heroscape scene.

I apologize I don’t remember what colors I used for this background but the Heroscape was stamped in Soft Brown, Cup O Joe and then a variety of colors for the coral and seaweed including Rose Madder, Lime Green, and Antigua.

My Frame Cut is die cut from Nautical cardstock in which I sprayed with Frost Shimmer Spray. It turns it into a subtle sparkle cardstock and looks gorgeous in person!

For more interest to the background, I added flicks of Gold and White Glimmer Metallic Inks.

This next one is for my clean and simple card lovers. The Heroscape is stamped in Antigua, Navy and Lime Green.

For the background I used the hills from Mountains at the Lake stamp set. I stamped the hills and the two images in Navy ink and my Heroscape is added to the front using foam squares.

Here is some inspiration using some of the Add-Ons from the release. This first one is featuring some beautiful sea shells. I copic colored the images from Sea You Soon and cut out with the coordinating die.

For a soft background, I lightly ink blended Pool Party Reactive Ink and then flicked on water for the water speckles.

After stamping a sentiment and adding my images, I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ which is one of my favorite sizes for card panels. I added this to a background I created by stamping the Underwater Pattern Bold Print onto Sand cardstock with Unicorn White Pigment Ink.

My last card to share is using the new Need a Hand stamp set.

I used Frame Cut from the kit that I die cut from Adriatic cardstock. I also created an ocean bottom using the hills from Mountains at the Lake and stamped in Soft Brown ink. I added the coral to my ocean bottom that I stamped in Cotton Candy, Lime Green and Soft Lilac.

The background was created by ink blending Pool Party and Blue Raspberry Reactive Inks onto Arctic cardstock. To tie my colors together, I heat embossed the sentiment onto Adriatic cardstock with white embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration. I had so much fun playing with these new products!
