Sunshine And Sea


I'm playing along with three challenges today - the Skipping Stones Colour Inspiration challenge, the Paper Players Summertime challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.  I used one of the patterns from the SSD Grunge collection for the waves and a sentiment from SSD's Uplifting.  The sun is an MFT die that I don't think I've used before.  Looking at it now, perhaps I should have stamped the water pattern the other way round to look more wavelike...  Hmmm...  Oh well.  It's done and I like it so that's that!  :)  Have a good day!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Dark yellow) Paperbilities) (So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, ) Stampin' Up

Stamps:  (Pattern from Grunge, Sentiment from Ulifting) Skipping Stones Design
Ink:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Sunshine) MFT
Gems:  (Bumblebee Assortment) Doodebug

Totally adorable! The perfect beach card! That SSD stamp looks perfect as a wave:) I've been thinking of getting that sun die, and I think you've just pushed me to do it!

Hope you're having a great day Jen!

I think the waves look perfect like that! And I love that die & the perfect sentiment :) I hope you've got a little bit of sun now that you've gotten that much needed rain!

Your waves are perfect - soft and rolly rather than choppy if they had been 'upside down'. What a fun summery card!

Lindsey said...

Ardyth is absolutely right! Great summertime card -- and wow, I'd sure like to see weather like that!

I love all things ocean, Jen, and these waves are all wet (ha- love 'em!). Great CAS design again and I have no idea how you so successfully combine so many challenges - my head is swimming (in those waves).
