and so the adventure begins

Hi, everyone! As I mentioned in my last post, I’m participating in the Gecko Galz Tricks & Treats Blog Hop and have decided to showcase each of my blog hop projects individually so I can enjoy sharing them in some challenges, and I’m back to share my second card. All five of my cards feature images from the very awesome Retro Cuties Collage Sheet which I’m giving away on my blog, so be sure to check out all the details in my blog post HERE and join us for the hop!


This image just screamed ‘beach’ to me so that’s where I went when I started gathering supplies for this card. I layered this gorgeous image on silver cardstock and then on navy cardstock. I created the background with two printed papers, a strip of cork and a large navy flag, and then affixed the layered image on foam. I added a sentiment sticker and several rhinestones to finish it off.


I decorated the inside with leftover strips of paper and cardstock used on the front, and then stamped a simple sentiment.


And one final peek from an angle so you can see the dimension. Super happy with how this turned out!


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up Whisper White and Night of Navy cardstock, Stampin’ Up Blueberry Bushel DSP, Marco’s Silver Veniclux cardstock
Stamps: Gecko Galz Rectro Cuties Collage Sheet, Stampin’ Up Bravo stamp set

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment! I love reading them!
