I had so much fun creating with all of the new Salt Air sets. The images are so much fun to stamp and then it was fun to create the scenes on my projects.

I inked some white cardstock with Hawaiian Shores and Tropical Teal inks and then splattered it with some water and Tropical Teal inks to create my background. Then I built up my ocean floor with elements from the Salt Air: Flora stamp set. The two step stamping options just bring the images to life and I had a lot of fun adding detail with ink blending.

Aren't the turtles just the cutest from the Salt Air: Fauna stamp set? I added them so they look like the are swimming to each other above the ocean floor. The sentiment is from the new Salt Air Sentiments stamp set. The final touch on this card was adding a few rainstones - they are the perfect bubbles for this oceany card!

I used Deep Indigo cardstock on this card for more of a deep sea look. The die I used for the opening is one you will hear more about later in the June release. I layered the Dark Indigo cardstock over a piece of white cardstock with that I inked up with Dark Indigo and Tropical Teal inks. I spattered the Dark Indigo with Fresh Snow ink to give it a bit more texture and water like look.

It was fun to tuck the images from Salt Air: Flora and Salt Air: Fauna sets to create the ocean scene for this card.

The die cut "celebrate" sentiment is from another die collection that you will hear more about later on in the June release countdown. I die cut it from Kraft cardstock and then used a white gel pen to write out the "celebrate" word on the die cut. I used some more rainstones on this card to add a few more underwater "bubbles".

Salt Air: Flora stamp set, Salt Air: Fauna stamp set & dies, Salt Air Sentiments, Shape Shifters: Oval 2 dies, Bold Basics: Wave die (celebrate)

This last card is perfect for welcoming a new baby. I used the seahorse images from the Salt Air: Fauna stamped set and popped them up just a bit in the center of this card and added the "hello little one" sentiment from the Salt Air Sentiments card next to them.

The background of the card is stamped with images from the Salt Air: Flora stamp set. Instead of doing bright colors, I stamped in Fresh Snow ink onto Kraft cardstock. That created a neutral background that helps make the focal images pop on the card.
