Hello and welcome to Amy’s Inkin Krew Blog Hop. This month’s theme is ‘Celebrate Summer‘ and I have a summer at the shore card featuring the Stampin’ Up! High Tide photopolymer stamp set, the Colorful Season photopolymer stamp set and Seasonal Layers dies.
I started by stamping the waves from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide stamp set in Blueberry Bushel ink on a Pool Party background. I sponged the ocean with Balmy Blue and used my white gel pen to add white highlights. I stamped the flock of seagulls in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the sun from the Stampin’ Up! Waterfront stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink on Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it and adhered it to the Pool Party panel.
I stamped the sand using Sahara Sand ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped second time below. I stamped several times to get the texture I was happy with. I sponged the bottom with Sahara Sand ink and stamped the Thinking of You sentiment in Early Espresso ink. I tore the top of the Very Vanilla piece and attached it to the main panel over the ocean. I stamped the sea grass in Old Olive ink, going over the ocean and attached the panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat.
I die cut two Adirondack chairs in Real Red and glued them together with the fine tipped glue pen and attached the chair to the panel with dimensionals. I used dimensionals to attach the panel to a Sahara Sand card Base.
For the inside, I stamped more sand, seagrass and seagulls on a Very Vanilla panel. I matted it with Blueberry Bushel and adhered it to the inside of the card.
I am usually a traditionalist, but I just love those bright colorful plastic Adirondack chairs that they have at the home improvement stores, so I had to have one for my shore card! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the Blog Hop.
