This is another new set, Just Beachy, in the Occasions Mini that I thought was SO fun! It is my first time playing with it. There is a matching Jumbo Wheel, Lazy Days, too! I love the old fashioned car/wagon (I forget what they called them) with the surfboard on top…and the fish crack me up! When I was small, my parents would take us to Lake Louise (in Illinois) to swim, and I remember the little fishes coming up and nibbling on us! My brother hated it, but I just laughed.
Mary and I were playing challenges last night, and I told her I needed to complete this assignment, so we both did it. This card is for an online buddy, Mary Jo, for a challenge! We were to use this sketch from Verve. It actually turned out to be quite an easy one to use!
I started with a base of Baja Breeze cardstock and added a layer of Sahara Sand. Then I cut a shorter piece of Not Quite Navy and scalloped the bottom. Then I used a piece of the new Walk in the Park Designer Paper and scalloped the bottom of it, too, so it lined up with the layer underneath. I added two lengths of Khaki Taffeta Ribbon (hmmm, it sort of looks like the road, huh?) I stamped the car/wagon on Whisper White in Basic Black and colored it in with my markers and blender pens (I don’t know why the car looks a different blue in the picture…in person it matches the Not Quite Navy!) I also stamped part of the sun in the upper left corner. I layered it on Sahara Sand and then Not Quite Navy…roughing up the edges with my Distressing Tool. Finally, I added a Neutrals star burst button with linen thread to the middle of the sun and the words from Sweet Sentiments, A Note for You.
Hoping to get some more things done in my Stamp Studio today and figure out the rest of the menu for Sunday’s Easter dinner. Have a great day!
