I created my card about 2 months ago when I first saw the fantastic “A Day at the Beach” Stamp Set in the 2016 Holiday Catalogue. It has images of a By Jingo (Icy Pole, Paddle Pop, etc), Thongs, Hat, Sunnies, etc all of which I think are very Beachy & Aussie! I have so many ideas that I can’t seem to get them down on card quick enough.
Today’s card is one that sort of popped into my head immediately on seeing the Stamps. It is a “Shaker Card” but with some of the stamps from the set – Sun, Thongs & By Jingo Images & represents our summers here in OZ.
I punched 3 circles into a piece of Whisper White Card with the 1″ Circle Punch before adhering a piece of Window Sheet behind each circle.
To create my Shakers I applied the great new Foam Adhesive Strips around each circle & filled them up with lots of bling, eg Sequin Trim, Sequins & even sand from the beach.
This piece was then adhered to a piece of Daffodil Delight Card & then to the Base Card – Whisper White.
I stamped “Happy Birthday” from “Crazy About You” Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry Ink direct onto Whisper White, layered it onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry before adhering across a section of the Card Front.
For the images I used my Blender Pen, Shimmer White Card & Memento Tuxedo Ink. The Sun – Daffodil Delight Ink, Thongs – Flirty Flamingo & Rich Razzleberry Inks & the By Jingo – Daffodil Delight & Rich Razleberry Inks. Each image was fussy cut & adhered to the circles.
To complete the card I popped a couple of small Rhinestones to each of my Thongs as well as the Card Front.
I will admit it is a little different but I’m happy with it! I would like to know what you think about it too!
Until next time,
