Greetings everyone out there in blog land! I hope by the time you read this we are finally enjoying some beautiful summer weather. Here in Idaho it has been rainy, windy and cold, nothing like this card! Have you seen the new releases at All That Scraps? I think this release is the cutest ever! I also love the new C.C. Starfish and Shell set die cutter. I have also ordered the bubble border die, I just can't wait to play with it.
Now, on to my card for this month. My image is the 'Summer Emma', she is one of the new June releases. You can purchase her in rubber or as a digi. I tore some kraft paper for the sand and then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut ink pad. I knew I wanted to add a few posts that you often come across in the sand, so I used my favorite C.C. Fence Boarder die. This is where I really had fun! I cut the points of the pickets off and then stamped the fence with a crackle background stamp. I then flipped the fence and so the bottom was now the top! A couple of foam squares and I had just the look I wanted. If you are really observant you will see a bit of sea grass at the base of my posts. It must have been a die day for me, as I grabbed my C.C. Grass Boarder die and cut some shimmery cream paper for my grasses.
A strip of blue from my scrap box, for the sea and a round circle of the shimmery cream for the moon added to my ocean scene. I would like to tell you that I used the Starfish and Shell die but mine has not arrived yet. So, not to worry I also have the new 'Beachy Beatrice' stamp and I stamped her off and then cut out the starfish and sea shell. Hey! Whatever works at the time! I colored them with Copics and add Stickles for bling .To finish off my card I added some pretty flowers that I made with my Phlox Flower die and the Leafy Branch die. I hope each of you will find time to relax at your favorite spot this summer!
