Royal Blog Tour Begins Tomorrow!

The Royal Blog Tour begins tomorrow.. and you’ll have three wonderful days to peruse the contributing blogs!  The Blog Tour Queens and Princess interviews have been posted throughout the month (You can view my interview as well as others HERE.)

In honor of the tour, I thought I’d provide a special card sample with one of my newest Stampin’ Up! Stamp Sets… Natures’ Nest!  As followers & readers already know, I love the beach, the ocean, the lakes, and just about any body of water!

This card features the clam shell from the Natures’ Nest Stamp Set.  I’ve stamped it in Creamy Caramel on Water Color Paper and then colored each of them with Blush Blossom, Always Apricot, Bashful Blue.  A touch of Dazzling Diamonds was added for a bit more sparkle too.. like wet clam shells glistening in the summer sun!  You can shop for all the supplies needed to make this card (and tomorrow’s cards.. ) in my ONLINE STAMPINUP STORE HERE.  This a very quick and easy card to make too!
