Relax under the Umbrella

The following card is using MFT Color Challenge 167 with a beach theme for the Retro Rubber Challenge.

I used the stamp set Beach Happy from SU, dated 2019. The ink colors I chose are SU Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and GKD Kraft. I used SU Crumb Cake cardstock for the card base and the Seaside Embossing Folder also by SU, retired. I used a stitched rectangle die, from The Stamps of Life, to cut the umbrella images out and the size wouldn’t fit on an A2 size card, so I made a 5 X 7 inch card base so the three umbrellas would fit across the card. I used partial embossing to make the stitched border around using a slimline die, but then I felt it was missing something so I added the embossing. I saw this idea on Pinterest for this stamp set, and modified it to fit the color challenge and the size of my dies.

  1. Very pretty. I’d really like to be in one of those chairs at the beach. The EF makes a great background.

  2. This is a perfect summer card and a great way to get all of the colors for the color challenge used, too.

  3. Lisa, this is wonderful! I love the colors you used, and how it looks almost like shades the sun shining on the left and getting more shaded as you go right with the colors. That sandy beach background really is perfect.

    1. Thank you! This is my first color challenge at MFT and was thrilled to easily pull out colors that looked like the ones in the code. The umbrellas are fun to stamp.

  4. Great choice of embossing folder – just like the waves on the ocean. Those lovely summery colours make me pine for a beach holiday… maybe one day. 🙂 Thanks for sharing with us again at Retro Rubber Challenge.

  5. love that yoou created a vignette on your card! And the colours are lovely, making me dream of the beach..soon, soon. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT

  6. Considering I’m viewing this on a very hot day, the theme is perfect. Love how you used the colours and the end result is wonderful.
