Inky Friends: Love it Live it Share It
Me and my Inky Friends have put together a hop for you featuring all kinds of goodies from the 2018 Occasions Mini! Come join us for loads of inspiration.

If you are following along in order, you just arrived from Sara Mattson-Blumes' blog where she featured the We Must Celebrate stamp set. Lovely, right?!

The set I chose to use is Waterfront. There have been some amazing cards made with this set already, and it works brilliantly as a scene builder with none of the usual fussiness. I love the loose watercolor feel of this set. I, however, have been entirely too busy creating treats and cards for my hubby lately to really have done this set justice, for which I apologize. I only have one project for you today.

 I was totally channeling a sunset on the beach with this card. Dreaming of warmer climes, and thinking back to our "year of cruising". has been a year since our last cruise, and it feels so long ago! I wanna go on a cruise so bad right now! But, the bank account says no. Mean bank account! 😞

So the next best thing it to make a beach scene, right! This was pretty simple.
  • Blend some Crushed Curry, Peekaboo Peach, and Tangerine Tango for the sunset.
  • Stamp the beach image in Soft Suede, and the palm trees in Early Espresso. Die cut with an oval from Stitched Shapes. 
  • Stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso, die cut with a circle from Stitched Shapes. 
  • Cut a 4"x5¼" panel of Thick Whisper White, emboss with Seaside embossing folder. Stitch around the edges and pull tails to the back. Adhere to a Thick Whisper White card base. 
  • Pop the sunset image and the sentiment up on dimensionals and adhere to card over a snippet of the Burlap ribbon. 
  • All done!

What a beautiful, soothing card, Tanya. Love the way the effect of the emboss folder gives way to waves. Perfect sunset. Let me know when we leave and I'll have my bags backed. Great job!

Beautiful clean card with a wonderful warm pop of color to draw right to the highlight of the card. Really wonderful, Tanya!

This really makes me want to go the beach. I think you captured the feel of the sunset perfectly and I really love the waves in the background. What a warm card to send to a friend.

I can feel the warmth coming off of that card! Great elements combined beautifully.

So pretty! Love the sunset. Makes me long for Minnesota summer!!

Cindy said...

Oh, Tanya, I can just feel the warmth of the sun and the warm sand when I look at that card! (Sorry your bank account is being a meanie, and won't let you go on a cruise!)

Mickey Roberts said...

Love this card, Tanya! I should probably mention that the cruises are pretty full going out of Port Canaveral these days...guess you're good on shaving your legs for the next little while.

Shelley Z said...

I wanna go too! Wisconsin winter weather gets old. Sun and sand sound like the perfect place right now. Your card is beautiful. I love the waves in the embossing folder on your card. I look forward to finding some time to play with this wonderful set!
