Hey everyone. Happy Tuesday! No, we didn’t spend a day at the beach…it was raining and in the 60’s here….my favorite!! I really should live at the beach the way I love the cool, overcast weather. Oh well, maybe one day. But, I did want to show you the cards I made for my swaps at OnStage back in April. I can’t believe I forgot to share them with you! Ok, yes I can believe it…my memory is bad these days! So here they are featuring the stamp set Day at the Beach.
When I was trying to decide what to do for my swaps I realized that I hadn’t seen many samples out there using this stamp set. So with that thought in mind, I created the sample and knew that I could use all the images which gave it a good variety, yet still basically the same card. And the best part of using this set? I got to color with our new watercolor pencils! Coloring is so relaxing and I was able to just sit and relax in the evenings while getting my swaps done. I used the Blender Pens to color with them since the images aren’t that big. Since there were no sentiments in this set, I used the Greatest Greetings, which has some really cute sentiments in it. I love all the images in the beach set, it just makes you want to head to the shore and stick your toes in the sand! The stamp set also pairs well with the By the Shore Designer Series Paper too which just makes for a fun card.
Sadly though, both the stamp sets and the designer series paper are retiring. At the moment they are both available, but with retiring items on a while supplies last status, I wouldn’t wait if either of these are on your wish list. You can purchase them here, and when you use Hostess Code 97HGXFU7 and purchase $40.00 or more, I’ll send you a package of handmade cards, including some with new product that will be available June 1st.
I hope you have a good evening. Be sure to come back tomorrow for a look at one of the projects we’ll be creating at this Friday’s Hostess Club Workshop.
