Today we are kicking off the StampNation Summer Beach Vacation event with a Blog Hop.
Each of the StampNation Dream Team members, along with some of our crafty friends, are hopping along sharing cards inspired by our first challenge, “Beach Style”, as well as a peek at our favorite projects from the event!
Here’s my card for the first challenge.
I started by stamping Simon Says Stamp Wide Stripes on a white card base with Platinum Planet Brilliance ink. Then I cut a layer of patterned paper from the Fresh Cut paper pad (Basic Grey) and decorated it with a strip of Kelly Purkey glitter washi tape. I die cut the Polaroid frame from Penny Black in Cosmo Cricket Simple Surfaces patterned paper, and stamped the sentiment from Waltzingmouse My Island stamp set in white pigment ink (WPlus9). I stamped and fussy cut the palms from the same WMS stamp set, and mounted over the scene created by layering stamps from WMS (same set again), and splats from WPlus9 & SU! stamp sets, over a lightly watercoloured white cardstock panel. I finished the card by adding a couple of sequins from Neat & Tangled.
