Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside.........

Hello and Good morning.
I was actually singing the title to this post as I was writing it....mmm I know a bit mad...but it does make you feel nostalgic and look forward to warmer weather and trips to the beach.
Creating the card I want to share with you today made me feel the same. I have used the stamp set "By the Seashore" from Stampin Up.
Stamped layers of Whisper White with Pool Party, Midnight Muse and So Saffron Inks. Made a Reef knot from some Twine and added some dimension to the star fish with some dazzling details. I love this fresh color combo and I think this card would be great for male or female

I really enjoyed putting this card together....I wanted it to feel like a beach hut and a holiday postcard...I had fun with the woodgrain embossing folder and distressed the cardstock with some light sanding and sponging. Sponged the sky and sea and added a bit of sparkle to the water and sand.

Similar layout to the previous card...but this time I had ago at heat embossing on our vellum....I wanted the colours of the sentiment to match the I inked first with Versamark and then lightly with Bravo Burgundy, stamped and then covered with clear embossing powder. I also love this collection of sentiments from Stampin' Up "Feel Goods"(available in Spring/Summer Mini).

and Finally....I have used this colour combo and layout before....It was a lovely quick card to put together...with a bit of distressing and again a touch of dazzling details sparkle.

All the items used in todays cards are available to purchase from please get in touch if you would like to place an order today.
Many thanks for dropping by....see you soon. x
