Warmer Days


This is a second entry into this challenge and it is more a masculine friend card. The stamps used are from Kitchen Sink (layering ocean) and Hero Arts. When I received the Hero Arts kit, ages ago now, I had also requested some additional dies, but missed getting the matching stamp for the ocean shape die. I had to get creative and what I did was stamp the water on a larger piece of CS so I could use the die to cut it out. It doesn’t give the white surf that one would normally see at a beach but the shape is perfect nonetheless. For the beach I used some handmade paper that was in my stash. It has a subtle gold glitter to it so looks like sand without needing any enhancement. The sun rays used a stencil that I was given by someone. The sailboat was stamped and then die cut and the same with the silhouetted sunbather. This is a CASE of something Jennifer McGuire did with this kit.

  1. What a fantastic ocean card! I love how you made your die work with your stamp set. If you really wanted white at the edge, you could do it with Nuvo drops, or white glitter glue and have it look frothy. Your sand is amazing.

    1. Thanks for the tip Golda – I didn’t think of it at the time. The handmade paper is really pretty but that was my last piece. If I go over to the mainland I shall have to go to the paper store that has all the Japanese papers. It is awesome in there.

    1. Thanks Gayle. I got really creative with this one because I had to figure out the stamping to be able to use the die.
