By the Seashore

It seems like forever since my last post, but I have been busy creating, just not having the time to post!

It is the wedding season at the moment in Oz, so I have been rather swamped with invitations & receptions, but today thought while my printer is busy printing, I would post a card we created last week in Crafty Creations.

We have been doing a lot of fun easy techniques in this class of late & the ladies seem to be really enjoying their card 003blogmaking.  Most of them have been coming for about 4 years now & thought it would be fun to start & head it in a slightly different direction & see how we go.

Last Friday we played with “Gesso” & created a fun beach side themed card with the Stamp Set – By the Seashore.  We had lots of Gesso everywhere including ink.  Everyone had a different effect for their ocean – wild & stormy, dark & cloudy, flat & calm & then a couple had lots of waves.  Lots of fun & play!

For my card, I randomly applied Gesso to a piece of Whisper White Card ensuring that I left heaps of space for colour to be added.  I wanted different layers of Gesso so that it would look like the waves in the ocean.  I sponged Marina Mist around the card followed by Night of Navy to bring in some darker colour.  I finished it off wiping gently with a tissue.  Since the photo has been taken, I 002abloghave touched some of the sections with Dazzling Diamonds to represent the wash of the water.

Another piece of Whisper White Card was scored every 1/4″ – can’t really see it in the photo – prior to adhering the Gesso piece to the bottom part of the scored card.  I then tied a piece of ribbon across the join & adhere to the Base Card – Night of Navy.

I stamped 3 shells onto scrap Whisper White2 x Marina Mist & 1 x Night of Navy, cut them out & adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

“Brother” was created using MDS & printed onto Whisper White Card.  I cut a “V” into each end & adhered to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Card # 2….

… is today’s post.  It is the 2nd card we created in our Technique Class last Sunday.  A smaller size card than the normal standard card, BUT with a twist!

Again, I cased it from one I saw while “travelling around the world“.  I would love to give credit where credit is due.  I did change it a little to fit in with our class & I also incorporated the colours of my Doona.

This gorgeous stamp set is fast becoming my favourite.  It has so much potentional, not just for cards but scrap pages as well.  In fact, I am in the middle of doing my niece’s wedding from last year & I know this is going to perfect for it.

Faux Tiles….

… & By the Seaside make for beautiful cards.  The 2 cards we created last Sunday for our Technique Class used this gorgeous stamp set. 

We try to create a standard card along with a card with a different fold or twist.  This week, our first card was an easy one which I saw a little while ago, but am unable to remember where I saw it.  Please let me know if you recognise it & will give you credit as it is stunning.

Our next Technique Class is Sunday, 27 January if you would like to come along.  The class is catered for anyone, so you do not have to be an experienced stamper.

 
Until next time, Happy Stamping!
