Well yet another week has flown by. For those of you in South Australia, Victoria, ACT or Tasmania and who are in jobs that don’t have to work on Monday, I hope you are enjoying a lovely long weekend. We spent the day in the Barossa Valley yesterday for the start of our weekend, but I do have to work on Monday, so just a normal weekend for me. Some of you may get to the beach which would be perfect for this week’s challenge as we are using the colours of the Sand & Sea DSP.
I was recently at a craft retreat, so I borrowed someone’s Friends are like Seashells stamp set, Seaside Seashells Dies and coordinating Embossing Folder to create my cards for this challenge.
I started with a Seaside Spray card base and then cut a mat of Seaside Spray. Before I did anything with the mat, I sponged on some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint all over the mat with a sponge dauber and let it dry. I then ran it through the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder. I hope you can see the shimmer it created in the photo above. I decided to keep my card quite simple as I didn’t want to take away from the love shimmery embossed background.
I stamped a few of the shell and starfish images in the other colours from the DSP and added them with a sentiment and a little Linen Thread and the card was finished.
I made a second version but used a Blushing Bride card base with a Sahara Sand shimmery embossed mat.
Next up is Sandra with her creation using the colours from the Sand & Sea DSP.
We’d love to see what you come up with using these colours. You don’t have to have this suite to make a project. You can choose any stamp set or style but just use these colours. Make sure you share your creation on our page.
Until next time, happy stamping
