Beach Day

     Hello everyone,  I wanted to share a card with you that I made for the card swap group I am in.  This card was based fof a sketch I had seen with some adaptation by me. I just love the way it turned out.  The colors are cool and the funny thing is that all the other women I am in the group with are demonstrators but none of them recognized the DSP for this project.  It goes to show you that we need to take a second look at what we already have.

Beach Day

  • Basic Grey, Pool Party, and Whisper White card stock
  • Basic Grey, Basic Black, Smokey Slate, and Pool Party ink
  • DSP Epic Day This and That
  • Wetlands, Gorgeous Grunge, By The Tide, and Fabulous Phrases
  • 1/4 inch Grosgrain Ribbon Basic Grey
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities (Labels 8)

     As always this is a A2 size card.  The first layer is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  DSP is cut at 4 1/4 x 3. The grey mat is 4 3/8 x 3 1/8.  I used Spellbinders Nestabilities (labels 8) for the last layer, I cut the same size twice and then cut grey in half and trimmed middle off and used to frame the sides.  I also sponged the edge of the white with Smokey Slate.  For the shells I stamped the grunge in pool party on scrap whisper white and stamped shell in Basic Grey over it and cut it out.  For the background on base I stamped pool party ink on pool party paper with the grunge stamp. for the white piece I stamped pool party with grunge stamp and then on the bottom I stamped Smokey slate and Basic Black with the grunge stamp.  The birds and the sentiment were stamped in Basic Grey.  I hope this helps.

     As always thank you for stopping by and taking a look if you would like any of the supplies you see above you can get them through my BFF and demonstrator Becky Crain at here webpage
