CAS 177 PCCC 198

My box of catalogue goodies arrived during the week but I've had to wait until Saturday night to really get into it. The set I wanted most was Seaside Shore and I've used it with the inspiration sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches.

As it happens, the colours at The Paper Craft Crew work well with this set too.

The three colours from the four choices that I'm using are: Mint Macaron, Calypso Coral and the new colour, Dapper Denim.

I like the linen twine added into this mix. I think it's suitably nautical and was a little more restrained than the Calypso Coral twine I thought about using. The new Seaside embossing folder is a real beauty and I feel I'll be using it a lot.

Update: Delighted to be a Top Pick at CAS Colours and Sketches this week!

Card: Mint Macaron, Very Vanilla
Stamps: Seaside Shore, One Big Meaning
Inks: Dapper Denim, Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron
Other: Seaside embossing folder, Scallop Tag punch, Linen twine, Dapper Denim marker, dimensional, post it notes for masking


  1. Love the wave embossed BG and the cute fishes and under the sea theme has worked perfectly using both challenges. Thanks so much for sharing and joining in on the CC&S challenge this week. Hugs Bev x

  3. What a great card!! I love how you used the linen thread on the tag. It adds great texture! Thank you for joining the Paper Craft Crew this week!

  4. Jan - this is a beautiful card. And it has me kicking myself (again) because I forgot to add any of the new embossing folders to my order this month. Really great colour choices and an awesome job on combining the two. Thanks, as always, for joining us at CAS Colours & Sketches this week. Hope to see you again next week. Liz x

  5. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your take on our color challenge this week, Jan. You used the same stamp set and DSP that I did for my DT sample card and I think I like yours better than my own!! xo Thanks for playing with us at the Paper Craft Crew! Crystal

  6. Jan, what a cute card! Dapper Denim was a great choice for your Mystery Color! Thanks you for sharing!

  7. Jan, you've combined the challenges beautifully. The stamp set and embossing folder seem to be made for each other. Such a great variety of textures! Thanks so much for joining our Paper Craft Crew Challenge this week.

  8. What a super sea-themed card! The textured panel is perfect for giving the feel of waves in motion. Thanks for sharing your card with us at CC&S! :)

  9. Jan, Absolutely gorgeous card! I love the theme and the textured background. Thanks for playing along with the Paper Craft Crew. ~Pam, DT
