Happy Sunday all,
I hope you're enjoying this long weekend. I know I am. I've been doing two of my favorite things, stamping and watching tennis. Most of my stamping has been making Christmas cards for my craft group get together in a few weeks. The ladies wanted examples and I've been using new SU sets. I'll share some of them in later posts.
For this post, I have a beach themed card. Even though the calendar is saying it's the end of Summer, here in San Diego, not so much. We're heading to a little afternoon party in a few hours, and this will be a "thank you" card for our hosts. (although you'll notice it doesn't actually have Thank You as a stamped sentiment.)
This is one of my favorite stamp sets. It's called Beside the Sea and it's by Avery Elle. I stamped the beach house image twice onto water color paper using SU black Archival ink and watercolored them with Zig Real Brush markers in a rainbow pattern. The card base is SU Coastal Cabana card stock. I used the SU Seaside embossing folder on the next layer, also Coastal Cabana card stock. The patterned papers are Doodlebug, but I don't remember from what 6 x 6 pad. The sketch inspiration is from the As You See It Challenge. I put the sentiment panel on the bottom, for my card, it looked better there. The little seagull is from the same stamp set.
I kept the inside super simple with the other sentiment and another image from the set.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of your day,
