Hi! And welcome to the North Carolina Demonstator Blog Hop for July. This month we are having some summer fun!
You might have just come from Tamra's blog. She always has such great projects! I'm so glad you are here!
Here in North Carolina we have the best of 2 worlds. We have the ocean and the mountains. I have cards for both!
I love going to the beach, but the mountains are my happy place. Let's start with the beach.
You know that the designer series paper sale is going on in July. It's almost over, so don't miss out. This card is made with the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper. Everything uses this paper.
The card base is Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2. Cut a piece of the Crumb Cake paper 4 1/4 x 5 and cover the entire front of the card. Stamp the net in Crumb Cake in several places.
The octopus is stamped on one of the Mint Macaron pieces of designer series paper. It's from the Sea of Textures stamp set. I did use the Stamparatus so that I could make it nice and dark. The octopus, the net, the coral, sand dollar, everything else is cut out using the Under the Sea Framelits.
The sunglasses were stamped on a piece of Balmy Blue DSP in Night of Navy. The glasses are from the Pocket of Sunshine stamp set. Use the Pocket Framelits to cut it out. I wanted it to appear that someone had lost their glasses while swimming. Ask me how I know that happens!
The saying is made using the Labeler Alphabet and trimmed with snips.
Here's the inside of the card. All stampin is Sea of Textures. The sentiment is from the Enjoy Life stamp set. Colors used are Crumb Cake, Fresh Fig, Mint Macaron, and Night of Navy.
This card also uses designer series paper. I don't think I can explain how I made this. It was a lot of trial and error and changes. Instead I'm going to list the supplies I used. They are many!
Stamp sets are Colorful Seasons, Lilypad Lake, Beautiful You, and Waterfront.
Framelits and thinlits used are Lakeside Framelits, Layering Ovals Framelits, Nature's Roots Framelits, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Up & Away Thinlits.
Designer papers used are Share What You Love Specialty, Tranquil Textures, Wood Textures, Tropical Escape, Regals 6 x 6, and the 2018-2020 In Color 6 x 6.
I also used the 1" circle punch, Light Granny Apple Green and Light Soft Suede Blends, and Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede ink pads.
Here's the inside of the card. Supplies are in the list above.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you are inspired to get some of the designer series paper while it's on sale. Time is running out!
