Now that you have all received your DSP from the October specials I think you might be looking for some ideas to use them. These little cuties use the lovely By The Shore DSP, coupled with the Day at the Beach Stamp set from the Seasonal Catalogue.
Of course you can get plenty of ideas from our Pretty paper Patterns too.
The Girl and the Boy were a couple of random stamps I had in my collection coupled with some retired framelits.
The framelit in Real Red was embossed with the Sea Side Embossing Folder.
It was fun colouring the girl and boy with the Stamp and Write Markers and the Blender Pen. Colouring is very relaxing so it’s easy to see why the colouring trend has caught on! Mind you colouring a stamp and making a card means you have a give away product for your time as well.
The other elements, sun, umbrella, bucket and spade, were stamped on Whisper White and coloured before fussy cutting out and adhering with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To complete the card a pocket was needed for the necessary gift card, so I stamped and coloured the ball and thongs before embossing with the Sea Side Embossing folder. This was adhered to the base card using the Foam Adhesive Strips which gives just the right depth for a gift card, or money. They have made my life so much easier!!
Thanks Stampin’ Up!
Off to create some more cards but make sure you check back Saturday for our Technique Treats November selection using Faux silk and Faux Stitching Techniques.
Bye! Happy stamping!!
