Beach Happy Seaside Waves Card

I love the rich Coastal Cabana colors of this beach card!  It surely makes me happy…what about you?

Step-By-Step Instructions: 

  • Run 3-1/2” x 4” piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock through the Big Shot with the Seaside Embossing Folder.
  • Wrap Bermuda Bay Mini Striped Ribbon around embossed Coastal Cabana cardstock and secure to the back side with SNAIL Adhesive. Adhere to the Whisper White Thick card base.
  • Attach 3-1/2” x 3-1/2” Calypso Coral Cardstock to card base with SNAIL Adhesive.
  • For the “water,” use Aqua Painter to pick up ink from the lid of the Coastal Cabana ink pad and “paint” the ink in a horizontal wash over the bottom half of the 3-1/4” x 3-1/4” Coastal cabana piece. Let dry completely.
  • Use Wink of Stella over the water to make it shimmer.
  • Tear about ¼” off the top edge of a 3-1/4” x 3-1/4” piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and attach to the lower edge of the Coastal Cabana cardstock for the sand.
  • Stamp the Beach Happy beach chair and umbrella on the “sand” in Memento Ink so that the chair legs rest on the “sand. (the seat and the umbrella will be in the water)
  • Stamp the beach chair and umbrella again on scrap Whisper White cardstock with memento Ink.
  • Stamp the chair seat in Coastal Cabana ink so that it fits within the legs of the chair.
  • Color the umbrella with light and dark Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends.
  • With Paper Snips, cut closely around the edges of the chair seat and attach to the chair with SNAIL. Cut the umbrella out leaving a small border around the edges and attach it over the first umbrella image with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Color in the chair legs and sides with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend.
  • Stamp sentiment in Memento Ink over the water and attach this piece to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Beach Happy Watercolor Wash Card

Here's a pretty beach scene created with a quick watercolor wash technique. The copper palm trees are the real stand-out!

Step-By-Step Instructions: 

  • Stamp the Beach Happy trees onto a 5-1/2” x 4” piece of Watercolor paper using Versamark ink. *Note that the bottom can be bent in different direction when placing on your clear block.
  • Sprinkle with Copper Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
  • Using the aqua painter, brush a light layer of water on the embossed watercolor paper.
  • While the paper is still wet, using the aqua painter apply Coastal Cabana ink at the top and Crumb Cake ink at the bottom. You just brush the aqua painter with ink, don’t worry about the emboss image. (To pick the ink with the aqua painter, I used clear blocks, tap one onto Coastal Cabana ink pad and one onto Crumb Cake ink pad. This will be your ink palette for the watercolor.)
  • Let dry and die-cut with the 5-1/8 x 3¾ Rectangle Stitched Framelits.
  • Adhere onto the Costal Cabana card stock then into the card base.
  • Stamp the greeting using Costal Cabana ink onto the 1” circle of watercolor paper.
  • Punch the 1/8 circle at the top of the circle and tie a little bow with Linen Thread.
  • Adhere onto the card front using a Glue Dot.
