Thinking of You- A Day at the Beach

Hi Stampers!!

I wanted to use the new stamp set, Wetlands to create a card using the CCMC256 Create withConnie and Mary Color Challenge along with Freshly Made Sketches FMS90Challenge (if you have a chance, take the time to visit each site and check out their great designs)!!

This card was fairly quick to create:

Using the 1 ¼” Circle Punch, punch out a mask from scrap paper and position the circle portion onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock (for the moon/sun).   Use the AquaPainter™ to pick up some ink from the Summer Starfruit Classic Ink pad and loosely apply to the sky portion, add a bit of Island Indigo for the ocean and just a hint of Early Espresso (very diluted) for the sand area.

Blot the wet ink dry with a paper towel and allow to scene to dry completely before stamping the sentiment and bird image using Early Espresso Classic Ink. Use the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker to add a few flying birds by hand and also add a bit of spritzing with the retired Color Spritzer Tool to give the illusion of the beach.

Adhere the entire panel onto Early Espresso cardstock and add the photo corners using the retired Photo Corner Punch, along with the Vintage Trinket Brad in the corner.

Create the background Designer Series Paper (DSP) panel by adhering a piece of the Subway Soho Designer Series Paper (I used the NY Map image) onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, mount onto a layer of Island Indigo cardstock and then again onto another Early Espresso cardstock layer before adding to your card base.

Create the vertical panel of using Early Espresso cardstock with a strip of the Summer Starfruit and Island Indigo DSP from the Soho Subway DSP pack- I love these designs in this DSP- great for masculine or feminine cards!!

Ink the starfish and sand dollar image from By The Seashore with Early Espresso and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.  Carefully cut out and sponge Summer Starfruit and Island Indigo Classic Ink onto each image.

Adhere the focal image along with the starfish with the sand dollar images using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish of this quick, easy card!

Ink: Early Espresso, Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit, Stampin’ Write Marker- Early Espresso
