Hi there!  I’m Kelly, married to my high school sweetheart, mommy to 4 fabulous kids and two hilarious dogs.  We live in tropical South Florida and I LOVE the beach!  We’re blessed to live so close to it where I can feel the crisp, salty air and the sand in my toes, collect shells and build sandcastles …. hence, the name of my blog: Sandcastlestamper

I’ve been crafting since I was a young teenager, scrapbooking and preserving our special memories.  I started card making almost full time after being invited to a home stamping party about 10 years ago and was instantly hooked.   Bright, vivid colors and lots of layers tend to catch my eye and grace many of my cards and projects.  My creative outlet is inspired mostly right here in our city, one filled with an eclectic style, a  rainbow of colors and nature to pull inspiration from – like a canvas painting come to life!

I’m very excited to be the guest Designer for Dare 2B Artzy for the month of March!  I look forward to crafting with you all!

I know most of you had a little bit of warmer weather – and now this weekend a little more snow!

Even in March, there is snow much fun to be had ♥

One of the stamp sets I chose to work with is Penguin Fun!

For my playful artic penguin scene, I stamped out 2 of the penguins, the sled, and the Christmas tree!!  I stamped the images in Dare 2B Artzy’s Premium black ink …so crisp and clean!  While I did fussy cut my images, there is a wonderful matching die set.

I colored them with my prismacolor markers (which are alcohol dye based inks – and look at how wonderful it colored and blended!)

I added a few layers of paper for snow banks and background, a few enamel dots and propped up the penguins with 3d foam tape.

Here is Penguin Arctic Fun:

For the inside of my card, I left the image uncolored and added another sentiment from the set.  A few more enamel dots and this penguin’s winter fun card is finished!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Big hugs, bigger blessings!
