Two blog posts today, this one is to show you a card I made for our team challenge. I am part of a lovely group of ladies called Simply Stylish Stampers. Our team leader Caroline (from Crafty Caroline Creates) set us a friendly challenge to create a project on the theme of Summer.
I decided I was going to use the z fold as my base, I love the way it creates a picture / scene within a card.
Dapper Denim was my chosen base colour with a piece of colour theory paper layered on top. Then I mixed up a few stamp sets to get my by the sea / beach design.
The lighthouse and birds come from 'High Tide', a photopolymer set which is great for the two step layering needed for the lighthouse. I chose 'Smokey Slate' and 'Real red' as my colours for this and the birds are also stamped in 'Smokey Slate'
The beach chair is from the 'Seasonal Layers thinlits', super easy to just run through your big shot.
'Weather Together' is the stamp set used for the umbrella and it was stamped in 'Real red' and cut using the matching dies.
Lastly the kites and sunshine were made using the 'Swirly Bird' stamp set for the kites (again in 'Real Red' and 'Dapper Denim') and the coordinating 'Swirly scribbles thinlits' for the sunshine which was simply cut from some more colour theory paper.

I am the first to admit i have an issue hoarding crafting products, especially papers! When they come packaged and look so pretty it's hard to chop them up to use. I always end up with retired papers left over each time a new catalogue is released and they end up sitting in my paper store unused. So with this in mind i decided to start using some of them up and made a start on some Christmas cards. Santa's workshop was such a fun set of papers, especially if making cards for younger members of the family. I used a larger piece of dsp for the background but then also cut another strip with elves on to use as the main focus of the card. Mounted onto real red card and then some glimmer paper to cut the word 'Christmas' from adds a little bit of festive bling and sparkle. At least if i use up my old stash i have the perfect excuse to buy more of the new products :) If you would like to buy any current products please pop over to my online shop HERE
