Hello, everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of the Pretty Pink Posh June Release Blog Hop! I am so excited to be hopping along with such a talented group of cardmakers! If you’re following the hop, you should have arrived from the amazing Cathy Zielske.
For my first card, I created a fun little see-through Box Card with some beach goers that are ready to surf. I combined the new Summer Surfboards Stamp Set along with the Summer Friends, Tropical Birds, and the Sea Friends Stamp Sets.
I always love combining stamps sets that I already own with new ones that are coming out! To begin, I first stamped all of my images with Copic Friendly Black Ink and then colored them with Copic Sketch Markers. I used all coordinating dies to cut them out.
I used the wave die from the Stacked Edges 1 Die Set and did some partial diecutting to achieve the waves in the front of the card. I diecut the waves and water from White Card Stock and then blended them with Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Inks.
I lastly heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto one the flaps of the card.
For my second card, I combined the new Tropical Birds Stamp Set along with the Tropical Background Stencil Set to create a festive card filled with pinks and greens. I used both Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink to blend over my stencil.
For the beach-portion of the card, I diecut a stitched hill once again using the Stacked Edges 1 Dies. I also did a partial cut on this piece using only one portion of the die so that I could create a hill.
Lastly, I created a fun single-layered card by stamping 7 surfboards from the Summer Surfboards Stamp Set. For the beachy background, I carefully drew it with a pencil, stamped my images, and then colored it with Copics.
I then heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. Lastly, I used a White Gel Pen to add some highlights.
