I love this combination of Pretty Peacock, Coastal Cabana and Lemon Lolly and it inspired me to create this coastal card. I began with watercolouring the strip of shells on Fluid 100 cardstock. Then I fussy cut around the image to create the shell border adding some ‘sea foam’ with Embossing Paste. This is such a fun product to create beautiful texture. On top of this I added a strip of Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper which I cut along the guide of the printed torn paper. This added to the textured look of the waves.
With the Rays of Light stamp set I created a two-tone background of Coastal Cabana and Pretty Peacock. The base layer was blended with Lemon Lolly ink for some sunshine.
The sentiment had an open centre which needed something and using the Radiating Stiches Dies I created a sun which I coloured with a Blending Brush. A few little shells were die cut from Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper. This gave them some lovely (and easy) shading and finished the card off well.

Welcome to my blog – Stamping Flair. Thank you for taking the time to visit me. Today I’m participating in the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop. This month we are featuring projects with a masculine theme. If you’re stuck for masculine makes, we’ve got you covered.
My masculine card features the Let it Ride stamp set which is suited for anyone but for this challenge it’s being a male stamp set!
I started off by attaching a piece of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to an Old Olive card base. The benefit of double sided paper is one side could have beautiful flowers (just like this one has) and then the other is suitable for a masculine card. Next I added a matted layer of the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper which adds a richness to this card to mark a celebratory occasion. The vertical lines in this DSP create a formal look which I think worked well for this masculine card.
The horse has been stamped in Soft Suede and die cut with the Stitched Shapes dies. I then formed a loop with the ribbon which has been attached with Tear & Tape. A bow from the linen trim adds a touch of rustic to coordinate with the horse. The stamped circle was then mounted with Dimensionals and layered on Old Olive and Early Espresso circles. I completed the card with a sentiment stamped in Early Espresso.
Old Olive – 21 cm x 14.8 cm (scored in half), die cut circle and scrap for sentiment
Whisper White – 6.8 cm x 10 cm and die cut circle
Early Espresso die cut circle
Perennial Essence DSP – 9.9 cm x 14.2 cm
Noble Peacock Specialty DSP – 6.4 cm x 9.6 cm
