Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Happy Birthday


Hello, Today over at Just Us Girls Vicki is our hostess for Trend Week and she wants us to Ink or Spray our backgrounds. I could have easily got out some of my neglected Dylusions sprays that I thought I had to have at the time and barely use, but I am sure it’s no surprise that I decided to make an inked background instead. I also used a bit of Vicki Boutin-Texture Paste to make some shiny seafoam. A very quick and easy card to put together.

Card Details: Background was made with Oxide Inks. The Flip Flops are from Impression Obsession. The shiny sea foam was made with Texture Paste. The greeting is from Close to My Heart. The tiny hearts are from a punch.

Hope you will pop on over to Just Us Girls and play along!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

  7. Your beachy inked backgrounds are the best anywhere…and the striped flip flops on this card are so fun! This card makes me want to hit the beach! Have a good weekend!

  8. It may have been quick and easy, but it is just so serine and peaceful I love this card and is it just the feeling that I need.

  9. Ahh the beach – my favourite place. Shame, for us, its more a matter of wellies than flip flops 🙂
    Pretty card – and I love the textured sea foam. xxx

  10. You’ve made such a beautiful scene Nancy and oh what I wouldn’t give to be there right now!! Love the shimmery sea foam detail and those gorgeous flip flops! Vicky x

  11. Oh how I wish I was there right now!!! We are getting snow here, ONCE AGAIN! I love your design, it’s very sweet and happy. Great take on the challenge, my friend!!!

  12. Beautiful inked seaside, Nancy. Texture paste for the foam was such a good idea.

  13. What a fun card, Nancy! I love the sea foam detail!

  14. As you know, I adore your beach-themed card! We’re actually at 3C today…with wind gusts up to 80kmh! Warm and ‘breezy’!

  15. So tropical Nancy. How nice it is to kick off those cute colourful flip flops (things here) and wet your toes in that beautiful blue sea.

  16. You’re killing me with all these ocean-themed cards! I want to be on the beach! LOL! Seriously though, I know what you mean about those sprays. I wanted to use them for this challenge, but they are so messy! That’s one of the reasons I shy away from them (even though I have several!). But your card is adorable, and I wish those flip flops were mine!

  17. What a sweet and fun birthday card! The flip-flops are so cute and you did a great inking job to create this beach scene.
