Happy Monday Crafty Friends! We are back this week with lots of inspirations! Before we begin with Irit’s fabulous card, I want to remind you that this is the last week of our IBSIC and our Free Download! You can read about all the details here! Here’s Irit….
Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my July post.
July means Summer for us here in Israel. Summer means shore and sea. Yes, we live near the sea and also I personally don’t like sand and sun as the country we do love it a lot. So today I made a card that is totally dedicated to celebration of sea and sun and it’s totally different from the usual cards that I make.
First I don’t usually make cards that celebrate general things, such as seasons, nature or life in general. Then usually I don’t make cards that have scenes stamped over the themed patterned paper. So this card is not my usual one, but I like the result a lot.
First I made the die cut with a word CELEBRATE from the patterned paper and outlined it inside.
Then I made a stamped scene with brown pigmented ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. As you understand ALL STAMPS are from Inspired by Stamping new releases. The first set I used is a new Seaside set and it’s just a pure pleasure for all who love maritime stamps.
Then the chairs and the birds on the bottom were colored with distress markers (so easy to color inside the heat embossed images!).
I added some birds stamped with black permanent ink on the top and the big word SEA was stamped to complete the sentiment. I used the word stamp from the Seaside Sentiments new set and believe me, this is the best sentiment set ever!
And yes, we do CELEBRATE SEA in our country. Do you?
We will be back this Wednesday with Kendra! Thank you for stopping by and thank you to Irit for creating such a lovely beach scene! With paper hugs, Joanna
