I decided it was time to show you something from The Frantic Stamper's release Vacation at the Beach. And what would go better with that release than The Project Bin's Summer Fun set? They go together like peas and carrots! Lookie:
GOJUS! (YILM!) I had a ton of fun with this card. For the background, I used an American Crafts Dear Lizzy Happy Place 6 x 6 pad.
I stamped the greeting from The Project Bin's Summer Fun set using a Hero Arts Ombre pad (Pool to Navy) on another piece of the paper from the Happy Place pad.
I die cut the sandcastle from Khaki card stock from Simon Says Stamp. The flat and the shovel were actually cut from the same striped paper in the background...that made it much easier to match it! I painted over the bottom of the castle with White Wink of Stella to make "water" washing over the bottom of the castle.
I used the Stitched Fishtail Banners from the Frantic Stamper and die cut these banners from some more of the Happy Place paper. One Doodlebug Sprinkle makes for a nice accent. A little bit of doodling around the edge with an Island Indigo marker and some (retired) Island Indigo baker's twine makes for great accents.
So cute! It was a lot of fun to make!
