It’s that time of the year when all teachers start counting down to the end of term and the summer break. Hopefully this year we will see the sun more than the rain! At Scribbles Designs a new challenge starts today with the theme ‘Holiday Hoopla’. So we would love to see your holiday related cards. It can be for any of the many holidays celebrated around the world, from New Year until Christmas there are so many to choose from! Being a sea loving girl I went with the summer for my sample.
Scribbles Designs – Sand Bucket (freebie)
Scribbles Designs – Sizzling Summer Papers
acrylic sentiment stamp (free with Creative Stamping Magazine)
black archival ink
X-Press It card
blank A5 card base
I printed out two of the papers then ripped strips and glued to the front of the card base to make the background. The idea is that the sandcastles are the ‘beach’ and the duck rings the ‘sea’. I left the white edge on the ‘sea’ strips to make it look a little like the tops of waves.
The Sand Bucket image has been printed out on X-Press It card three times, coloured and then used to make the 3d image.
The sentiment is stamped on white card, trimmed and edged with a pen then the same pen used to edge the card.
I hope you will come and join us at Scribbles Designs. You have until the 14th July to get your entry in. You will find more inspiration from the DT on the blog as well as a link to the store where there are plenty of images to inspire your creations.
Thanks for dropping in. Take care.
