It is almost time for my beach trip and I cannot wait. Sitting on the sand and doing NOTHING is my idea of a good time. Thinking about my trip helped me to realize that I had not shared my Seashell card with you. My upline, Brian King, shared it and others recently. The card was made for a card swap among team members. If you did not see it on his page, then awesome! You get to see it from me first.
I love this layout. It came from an old sketch challenge I had seen and made note of. This really allows a pretty piece of designer paper to shine.
The Sand & Sea Suite of products is Amazing!!! I love every piece in the suite. And I managed to use quite a few products in the suite.
The base of my card is a piece of Thick White cardstock. The gorgeous blue is Seaside Spray, one of the retiring colors 🙁 . Both pieces of DSP used are from the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper. The seashell piece is layered onto a piece of White cardstock and raised with dimensionals. The gorgeous blue water piece of DSP is cut 2 X 4 , and then 3/4 is cut from each end. Those pieces are adhered onto the Seaside Spray on each side of the raised piece. The larger section is then lined up across the top.
The seashell images are from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set. They are stamped using Sahara Sand Ink and then filled in with the appropriate pieces from the stamp set using Blushing Bride Ink. The dies are part of the Suite of products and are amazing! I finished each of the shells with a touch of Wink of Stella for some glimmer. The sentiment piece is also from the set and is stamped with Seaside Spray Ink, with an overlay of the small starfish. It is then cut using the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch. The final touch is a couple of the Opal Rounds. They do not show very well in the photo but do shine and fit in perfectly in person.
Thank you so much for stopping in on this Monday. I hope you were safe from the storms of Saturday that seemed to be everywhere!
