A Day On The Beach…

| Beach, Blog, Card Cupids, Freshly Brewed Designs, Summer

As part of the Design Team for Card Cupids we were given this wonderful digi stamp from Fresh Brewed Designs and asked to make a card for a childs birthday or with any shade of Blue.

This image will give a lovely fresh, summer feeling to any card.

Recipe & Method
  1. Cut and score a card 8″ x 8″ from Kraft card.
  2. Mat and layer yellow card stock, then add the Blue spotted paper.
  3. Cut the orange text paper and layer it onto Green card stock.
  4. Add the Shell paper layered onto Green Cardstock.
  5. Colour and cut your image and adhere to a Yellow Scallop Rectangle.
  6. Attach ribbon to left side of card and stick the layered image to the card.
  7. Embellish using bunting and the Sandcastle die.
To colour my image I used Promarkers:
  • Almond
  • Sunkissed Pink
  • Lime Green
  • Pumpkin
  • Azure
  • Canary
  • Pale Yellow
  • Vanilla
This was a lovely image to colour as you can really shade her skin tones.  The image can be found here.

Life’s A Beach…

| Beach, Blog, Boy, Eureka Stamps, Promarkers

Today I am posting a lovely summery card as part of the Design Team for Eureka Stamps.  The weather in the UK is far from sunny but this card brings a little Sunshine!

The Digi Stamp is from Eureka Stamps and can be found here.

I have made this into an easel card, using lots of bright seaside colours.

Recipe & Method

  1. Make an 8″ x 8″ Easel card from Kraft card.
  2. Mat and layer yellow card stock onto the top of the card and the bottom layer.
  3. Stick the stripy blue paper onto the bottom layer, scallop the bottom of the blue paper for the top card and stick it down.
  4. Add a section of red spotty paper to both the top card and the bottom.
  5. Colour and cut the image and layer it onto first red paper, then yellow cardstock and Kraft card.  Add the ribbon and the button embellishment.
  6. Adhere to spotty paper and attach to card.
  7. Print and cut the “Life’s A Beach” sentiment and layer it onto the shell paper and attach to card.
  8. Embellish using the bunting and the sandcastles.
I have used the following Promarkers:
  • Ivory
  • Dusky Pink
  • Sky Blue
  • Berry Red
  • Lime Green
  • Sunflower
  • Vanilla
  • Mustard
I really enjoyed making this card from this image, I think it is one I will use again and again.
