Hello friends! I just have to share this card that I made for my stamp group last month. It was so awesome to have in person classes again. I missed seeing everyone and all of the chatter and visiting that goes along with stamping. At the end of this post, I have a few pictures of my sweet little angel from Easter weekend.
Today's card uses the Seaside Bay Bundle. I love all things related to the ocean so I absolutely had to have this bundle.
I started with a small square of Basic White cardstock. I added a piece of masking paper that I tore along the top edge. I added the masking paper to the bottom of the Basic White cardstock, leaving about a half inch of white cardstock at the bottom. I then used a Blending Brush to add Sahara Sand ink approximately half way up the piece of cardstock. Once I was happy with my sand layer, I peeled off the masking paper and added it to the top of the piece of cardstock again leaving about half an inch of white at the top. I used another Blending Brush to add Pool Party ink. I blended it where the two colours met. When I was happy with the colour, I removed the Masking Paper.
I matted my above piece onto a piece of Gold Foil. Before I added my cardstock to the foil, I used the largest seaweed die and the largest scallop shell die to cut out these items. By cutting them out of the center of the foil, I saved paper.
I used the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Basic White cardstock. On another piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped my sentiment using Basic Gray ink. The sentiment is from the stamp in this bundle. I used the label die from the Waves Dies set to cut out my sentiment. I added a piece of Pool Party Ribbon that I threaded through the holes in the sides of the label. I added the sentiment to the embossed cardstock using dimensionals and wrapped the ribbon around the back of the cardstock. I then attached the embossed cardstock to a card base of Pool Party.
I added my matted, sponged piece to the card front using dimensionals. I used more dies from the bundle to cut out a small piece of seaweed from Pool Party cardstock and two small scallop shells from the Pearlescent paper. On a small piece of Basic White cardstock I stamped a shell using Pool Party ink and then used the corresponding die to cut that out. I added these shells and seaweed pieces to my sponged piece.
To complete the card I added some Flat Adhesive Backed Pearls. I added one large pearl and three small pearls.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card.
Stay well and keep creating!
Here is a picture of Peyton tubing with Mom and Dad. As you can see, it's not the best picture. It was snowing really hard and it was really wet snow.
Here is a picture of her in her little sled. I took her for a ride one afternoon but she was so tired. That morning I just got her to sleep and some guy banged on the door and woke her up. She missed so many naps up there that I think she was glad to get home and catch up.
Here is a cute picture of her peeking through the rails on the steps.
These last pictures are her with her goodies from the Easter Bunny. He stopped by her house while she was away.
