Beach Scene

I was excited to see the challenge with Just Add Ink as it is all about the beach. I have been to two beaches in my life and both were enjoyable. I was also happy to see the As You See It Challenge is all about my favorite card to send.

I saw this idea on Pinterest and decided to go with it. The stamp set is Beach Happy by Stampin Up. I used all Gina K Designs supplies and inks for the card. The ink colors are: Coral Reef, Tangerine Twist, Wild Dandelion, Key Lime, Blue Lagoon, Plum Punch, Kraft, Sandy Beach, Black Amalgam. The cardbase Coral Reef.

I added sparkle to each of the palm leaves and the bag. This was fun to create.

I love creating general uplifting cards. Those are always a fun card to send. If this is sent near an occasion, I will place those greetings inside. I often send these to a friend who is going through a rough time in life. Another reason I like these kinds of cards is that the person is not expecting it. They get a fun surprise in their mailbox.

Beach Happy

Using the Beach Happy set by Stampin’Up!, I have been creating several cards. None of these cards are my original designs. All are from demonstrators and their blogs, Pinterest, or You Tube channels.

Anniversary card

My husband and I just celebrated our 28th anniversary. The colors of our wedding were peach and teal, so I made the chairs in those colors. In the photo, the peach one likes more orange, but it is stamped with Hero Arts Peach ink pad.

The last three cards were created from Stamp With Lisa. I basically followed her idea, using what supplies I had available. I must be dreaming of warmer weather.
