This week’s Global Design Project is a fun sketch challenge. I’m using the retiring Beach Happy stamp set and Seaside embossing folder to make my sketch challenge card.
Start with a Crumb Cake cs card base. Cut a Whisper White cs panel, dry emboss it with the Seaside embossing folder, and then glue it to the card base.
Cut a Pool Party cs panel, Blueberry Bushel cs panel, and Crumb Cake cs panel. Glue the Crumb Cake cs panel to the Blueberry Bushel cs panel and glue them to the bottom edge of the Pool Party cs panel. Use Stampin Dimensionals to adhere the panels to the top center of the card front. With an Aqua Painter pick up a small amount of Blueberry Bushel ink from the pad and use the cap to flick small droplets of water & color to the card front.
Cut the Whisper White cs image layer and sentiment banner . Use the Stamparatus to stamp the image in Memento Black ink on the Whisper White cs image layer. Stamp the chair in Blueberry Bushel ink. Stamp the umbrella in 2nd generation Blueberry Bushel ink (I stamped off on scratch paper). Color the rest of the images with the Stampin’ Blends. Add Wink of Stella to the umbrella and chair for sparkle. Glue the stamped & colored Whisper White cs image layer on the Pool Party cs panel.
Stamp the sentiment from the Beach Happy stamp set in Blueberry Bushel ink on the Whisper White cs banner. Use paper snips to flag the end and then glue across the image Whisper White cs panel and Pool Party cs panel.
Add Gingham Gala Adhesive – Sequins to the card front. Don’t forget to add a Whisper White cs panel to the inside of the card to write your message. I also added color droplets to the inside panel. I then stamped and colored the beach bag image from the Beach Happy stamp set in Blueberry Bushel ink to the inside panel and back of the card to pull the theme through.
I hope you enjoyed my #GDP186 sketch challenge Beach Happy card. You can order everything I used to make this card in my Online Store including the retiring Beach Happy stamp set and the Seaside embossing folder – but don’t wait retiring product sells out fast!
