Here’s My Card

Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge PCC238

I liked the different layers in the sketch, and decided that I wanted to create a scene (but in a good way – not the pitching a fit in public kind of scene!).


I knew that the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack would be perfect for this beach scene.  Cutting 2 panels from the DSP, I layered the smaller one over the bottom of the larger, and stamped the flying birds first.  Then, I stamped the standing birds – I think maybe they’re Sandpipers, or Terns – on the bottom piece only.  All were stamped in Soft Suede ink.

After stamping, I layered each stamped piece onto panels of Island Indigo cardstock.  I then layered first the larger panel (flying birds) then the smaller panel onto a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Crumb Cake cardstock.  After adding the banners of Island Indigo and Crumb Cake cardstock, I wrapped the Linen Thread twice around the top, then tied off in a bow.

Finally, the sentiment from the Crazy For You stamp set is stamped in the bottom right corner.

This is the first time I used the High Tide stamp set without using the lighthouse image!  I really like the images in this set, and the sentiments.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)
