Merry Christmas

Not long now until Christmas!

When the 2016 Holiday Catalogue first come out, a card on Page 3 popped out at me.  As I 20161105_133418_resizedinsidon’t have the stamp set they used, I do have my favourite “A Day at the Beach“, which I payed with to create my version.

I am a lover of non-traditional Christmas & I think this card is Australia to a “T”.  It will be in my part of the world anyhow.  I am spending part of Christmas Day on the beach.  Where will you spending your day?

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Hello

I am sharing a card today that was created for one of our Technique Treats #8 – “Faux Linen” – 2 ways where we used the lovely stamp set “A Day at the Beach” which is from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue.

I’ve done lots of sponging – moon, waves & sand.  The dolphin, thongs & ball have been coloured with Inks & Blender Pen. I’ve adhered them to the Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I’ve used the Faux Linen Technique on the Basic Black Background.

There is so much potential with the lovely little stamp set.

If you want to create more cards using this great technique, be sure to head on over to the “Technique Treats” Page.

Don’t forget, tomorrow is the release of our November Treats.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Happy Birthday

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,

Happy Stampin’
