Hello Stampers (I figured out how to make the print larger!)
Here are a few more samples from another retiring beauty - Seaside. If you haven't seriously looked at this set you should now before it's gone. It's perfect for all types of cards and for scrapbooking a trip - to where else - the beach! I've also seen it used beautifully for destination wedding invitations.
Here's what the set looks like:
This card has images that are stamped and then cut out and mounted on the card - the starfish is popped up using dimensionals. It was created by Nance Paine of Yakima, WA. Lovely!
This picture doesn't do this card justice. It's stunning in person. The shell has Crystal Effects applied so it looks like a real shell.
If you look closely you can see where Lorna Fayer has applied sticky strip to the ribbon and then added clear microbeads (yes we sell those!) - looks fabulous and rich!
This is simple but effective - Lene Pearson - has embossed the shell in black - very clean - would work well as a masculine card.
Another fabulous card by my "dear, Kind and wonderful friend" Liane Binder. This is from last year and uses long retired In Colors but you may still have River Rock (my all time fav) and Buckaroo Blue and Soft Sky in your stash - love this one!
This is another simple presentation but so wonderful - the starfish is watercoloured and then some glitter is applied (you can do this so simply with just a 2 Way Glue pen and our Dazzling Diamond Glitter!). This card was created by my friend Amanda Coughlin from Tampa, FL (hey buddie!)
Last, but not least, is this stunning card by my downline and friend Debbie Tompkins - this is unbelieveably beautiful in real life. The shell is embossed on Sage Shadow cardstock and then the inside areas have been "bleached out" using an aqua painter and bleach. The colour is removed from just these areas but still shows through to add shadows. It's not difficult to do but has the look of a real sea shell. It reminds me of the shells we found on the beach when we were in Cape Cod for a holiday when I was little (about 100 years ago LOL).
