Our card today is one we created in our class a couple of weeks ago. You may have seen the 1st one I shared with youalready. I love it when I can get multiple uses from my Stamps & Dies & this is just one of those occasions where I am doing a happy dance & created Beach Huts. You can see another card I created using the same Edgelits here.
In our classes we have started on Techniques & the ladies are loving them. I have a list that they would like to try out so that saves me trying to think of new ones to teach.
Don’t forget you are able to download the Technique Tutorials for FREE by clicking on the Free Techniques TutorialsPage. Yes, SU! Demos are able to use them for their classes too. The page will be updated every 2 weeks with new techniques.

Today’s post is a little different in that I am going to be sharing with you easy Techniques that you will be able to create in your own home & with the supplies you have on hand.
These techniques will appear on my blog every 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the month, along with instructions for a card using the technique. The technique tutorial will also be available which you will be able to download, file in a folder & keep on hand to use or to refer back to at a later date.
Yes, SU! Demos are able to use them for your classes, workshops & demonstrations. It just means that all the work is done for you, except of course your samples.
This means that you will have 2 options in the way you file your tutorials.
Option 1 – Detailed tutorial in the full page pocket & the tips & tutorial in the 2 pocket page.
Option 2 – Shorter tutorial & sample side by side using the 4 pocket page. There is also a sheet of Products used plus Measurements (Metric & Imperial) that you are able to print & tuck behind your tutorial if you wish.
You can find the Technique Tutorials by clicking on the Technique Tutorials Page.
Once again I’ve been playing with the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies& have been wanting to use them other than for Christmas. We created 2 cards in our class on Friday using the same Dies but both very different which I will share with you later on in the week.
For my card today, I cut 3 of the houses from Whisper White CSusing the smaller Die & then cut them back to the size & shape I wanted before colouring with the Watercolour Pencilsso that they looked like beach huts.
For my scene, I masked off a circle for the sun punched using the 1/2” Circle Punch & then coloured with the Watercolour Pencils. Once the mask was removed I lightly coloured the sun with the Daffodil Delight Pencil & carried it through onto the ocean. The sun was highlighted with the Clear Wink of Stella.
A circle has been cut into a piece of Whisper White CS overlapping on the left hand side of the Card using the Layering Circles Framelits.
The branch has been stamped in Crumb Cake while the flowers are in Daffodil Delight. To pop them a little more, I then added Pumpkin Pie to the centres & blended with the Blender Pen.
The piece of scenery was then adhered behind the stamped Whisper white & trimmed from the left hand side before layering onto a piece of Crumb Cake CS& then to the Base Card – Bermuda Bay. The beach huts were then adhered in place with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
