SHORE do miss you



3/8/21 Honorable Mention at Pammie’s Inky Pinkies Challenges!

Hi everyone! I’m sure after months of chilly weather, everyone is wishing for some beach time! Our new challenge has launched over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #143 – Anything Goes! I had a LOT of fun creating this card with washi tape and brads paired with some super fun stamps! I work ahead and created this back when our cold weather out here in Colorado was just beginning and I knew that by the time this challenge launched, everyone would be ready for some warmth! ;)

I cut a standard A2 top folding card base from Solar White cardstock. I created an angled background panel from a couple digital papers that I printed on 60# Hammermill copy paper, added some narrow washi tape to the seam, layered the panel on orange cardstock, and then adhered it to the card base. Then the fun began working on the beach panel. I created the water and the sky, and added a sun brad. I hand-cut an island in the background to hide the seams and added a palm tree brad. I stamped the snorkeling kid named Curly on a scrap of Solar White cardstock, colored him with alcohol markers and fussy cut him out, then ran a black marker around the edges for a more finished look. I sat him aside and created the beach with a piece of torn kraft cardstock, added a shell brad and shove and bucket, then adhered Curly. I layered the panel on orange cardstock, stamped the sentiment in black StazOn ink and adhered the panel to the background. The finishing touch was adding Glossy Accents to his goggles after the inside was complete.

I embellished the inside panel with a leftover strip of the digital patterned paper used on the front and an orange cardstock strip, stamped the sentiment in black ink, and layered the panel on orange cardstock.

And one more peek… I’m absolutely smitten with this design! It was a little work but definitely worth it! I’ll be CASEing this design but with a different stamp!
