Wish You Were Here

Hello, I am sorry but I have one more card using this fun die set from Spellbinders and I think it’s the last…but no guarantees. I wanted to try to make one more card for Fusion’s Challenge before it ended as I just loved the beached tiered tray they have for inspiration. I tried to pull in the earth tones and the soft aqua from the photo. I have one of these trays in my Kitchen, which is so fun to decorate. Right now mine is Ice Cream themed, one of my other guilty pleasures.

I used a stencil called Perfect Plaid from Miss Ink Stamps to make my beach bag.

I used a small hole punch for my dots of color.

I hope you are doing well and have had a great day! Nanc’

Smile

Hello, the entire time I was making this card today the lyrics of Smile kept playing over and over in my head. I am back with another card using the new Small Die of the MonthDay at the Beach from Spellbinders along with the surfboard die, which is also from Spellbinders and can be found in the set Large Die of the MonthTruckin Through the Seasons.

To jump-start my card today I went in search of a sketch and a color challenge. So I am playing along with Freshly Made Sketches and The Color Throwdown.

A Few Details: I had to shrink the beach towel down to get it to fit on my middle panel. I ripped some white paper so I could make the beach foam. The beach ball didn’t make it on the card as I just couldn’t make it look right.

Truckin Through the Seasons

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you…If you just smile

You’re welcome…now you can sing all day too. 🙂

I hope however you chose to spend your day there were moments where you could just smile.

Take care, Nanc’

Hello Summer

I am back with another card using this new Spellbinders Small Die of the Month called- Day at the Beach and this time I am playing along with the gals over at Fusion. I still had all the scraps from yesterday’s card on my desk so I stuck with the same color scheme. I have been eyeing the Fusion Challenge for the past week and knew that if I got my Spellbinders set in the mail in time it would work out perfectly for this challenge.

I chose to play with just the photo and not the sketch for this card. I used two elements from the photo in my design, the first one is obviously the hat with the hello on it, but the second one is the long rectangles both on the door and at the top of the doorway in various widths.

Pink and Main-Sunshine Die

Oxide Inks: Abandoned Coral and Peacock Feathers

Card Details: Cut strips of paper in various widths to complete my background. I used Oxide inks to sponged my sentiment and flip flops. The tiny stars on top of the flip-flops were made with an old Verve border die. The sunshine die is sponged and double mounted for some depth. I used a few gold sequins to finish it off.

I certainly am appreciative of your visits and I hope you have a wonderful day, Nanc’

Hello-Spellbinders

Hi, I am back today as promised, with another card using that same color palette from yesterday. This time I am using this fabulous new Small Die of the Month from Spellbinders, called Day at the Beach. I am sure you are not surprised that this Florida girl had to add this to her collection! It is as cute as it can be and fun to put together.

I did have to trim the card down a half inch as I messed up the sides of the water while stenciling.

Here is a close-up.

MFT- Make Waves Stencil

Miss Ink Stamps-Perfect Plaid

Oxide Inks: Abandoned Coral and Peacock Feathers

A Few Card Details: In order to make my background I used a straight edge of acetate and some masking to blend the sky. In order to make the rippled edge of the sand, I used a piece of ripped paper. The waves were added last with a stencil. I used a stencil from Miss Ink Stamps to make my bathing suit pattern. I inked the flip-flops, and I have dimensionals for height and a few decorative rhinestones.

I am linking up with Darnel over at NBUS. and Simon Says Stamps, make your own background.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day and or week ahead! Nanc’
