Wishing every day was a beach day...

Hello Inky Friends!

Today's card is pretty quick and simple as I am working with limited access
to all my artsy supplies at the moment.  

I LOVE this stamp though and again, I think it lends itself very nicely to creating summer masculine cards ~ especially if you have a Birthday Greeting to add to it!

I used Sea Grass Lighthouse for the focal image cutting it out from the Journey Ovals die set.
I colored the image  lightly with colored pencils, added some Journey Twine behind it and
popped it off the card front. The image Beach Day was stamped along the bottom.
The cloud embossing folder is also offered from Fun Stampers Journey
and I inked up the raised side with white ink before running my blue paper through the machine!

We are just a couple short weeks to another NEW RELEASE Blog Hop and I've already seen a preview of some of the new stamps!! Mark your calendars for it now so you won't miss the hop and the sale! ;)

Until next time...

Happy Creating!

Pebble Beach

I tried a different approach with this card using Technique Junkie Pebble Beach
The verse is Beach Day SDX071 -  

I stamped the image with Memento Flannel Gray ink on a light tan card stock. I colored the starfish and the shells with Copic markers.  I used a gold Wink of Stella pen to further highlight the Starfish and parts of the two larger shells. I layered it on gold metallic Star Dream text weight paper, and then on dark brown card stock. 

I stamped the verse with white pigment ink and heat embossed with white pigment embossing powder. The verse is stamped on the dark brown card stock and layered on gold Star D\ream tex weight paper and popped up with dimensionals.  Three areas of tiny shells are attached for texture and visual interest. 

You can look for a star fish at the beach -- and get inky when you come inside.
