Take Time To Coast

Howdy peeps! Dang, the time just seems to be going by at wicked fast speeds… we’re on the downslide to the end of October already! I’m stoked to be back with another guest design project for InkyStamper using the Pelican stamps and die! This inspirational side fold card (one of my favorites that is super easy) created with the pelican seemed like the perfect kind of card to create in varying tones of brown, and I love how it turned out!

I cut a side fold card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from Doodlebug Design Floral-Graph and Dot-Stripe Rainbow Petite Prints. I cut notches into the side panel and tied some Doodlebug Design Lily White Doodle Twine around it into a bow. I stamped the Pelican in Memento Rich Cocoa ink on 110# Solar White cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers, and cut it with the coordinating die. I also stamped the stump with rope in Rich Cocoa ink on Solar White cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers, and fussy cut it. I adhered the pelican and stump to the card front and then stamped the birds.

I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock, trimmed it, and adhered it toward the top of the card front. The finishing touch was adding several neutral colored sequins that I picked out of the Picket Fence Studios Spiked Cider Sequins.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock, embellished it with the Doodlebug Design Floral-Graph print used on the front, and stamped the sentiment in Rich Cocoa ink.

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
