Welcome to Stamping Flair on this lovely Saturday morning in Blind Bight, Victoria. I’m hopping with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world in the Stamp N’ Hop blog hop. Our projects will be all about the little folk in our lives – babies, todddlers, young ones.
Although Autumn here in Melbourne, we’ve been getting a few warm days this past week so I created a card along the beach theme. Children enjoy spending summer days at the beach and I thought this would make for a bright and cheery card. These two little girls make me imagine that they are sisters enjoying a family holiday. I can just hear them chattering with excitement as they talk about the beautiful sand castle they are building.
After selecting which stamp set I wanted to use, my next decision was a main colour. I chose Pineapple Punch as I have not used it a lot and it will be retiring in a couple of months. So I thought I’d show it some love.
I had an oval which I had previously cut from the Heirloom Frames Dies which I then embossed with the 3D embossing folder that is included with the Dies. I then went over the embossing in Pineapple Punch ink using a sponge dauber. This really picked up the beautiful embossed pattern even more. I added an extra Pineapple Punch oval frame cutout from the Layering Ovals dies to create the inner frame.
The shells were stamped in Balmy on a bit of left over Shimmery White cardstock I had which had been sponged with Coastal Cabana, Pear Pizzazz and Balmy Blue and then spritzed. These were layered on elements and a sentiment from the Kerchief Card kit. **
Products used to create this card are listed at the bottom of this post. I’ve had lots of fun creating this summery card for the little loves in our lives and I hope you have enjoyed your visit here. Let me know what you liked about it – I’d love to hear your comments and answer any questions you may have. Next on our hop is Jill Chapman. Click on the Next button to see her lovely project.
