Waves of the Ocean Blog Hop

Today I'm participating in the Waves of the Ocean Blog Hop!  Have you seen this amazing collection of products that has just been released by Stampin' Up!?  All I can say is WOW!  I am absolutely in love with this suite.  The Stamp Set and Dies are amazing and the Designer Series Paper, Foil and Rhinestones are stunning!   You are absolutely going to want to add this collection to your stash!  The Bundle will carry over to the upcoming Annual Catalogue, but the Designer Series Paper, Foil Sheets and Rhinestone are only available until May 2nd or while supplies last.  That will be sad when they are gone!

I'm excited that my Your Creativity Awaits Monthly Card Kit for March features this suite and if you order the kit plus the full suite, you will get a bonus project of a box plus 3 cards in addition to the usual 8 cards (2 cards of 4 designs).  Get all of the information on the Your Creativity Awaits Kit below.

I created this during a recent Sketch Challenge.  Here's the sketch.

Check out this pretty card that I created using the suite.
