Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop! Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Celebrate Summer! We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!
I decided to go to the beach. With dinosaurs.
No – no dinosaurs. Just the DinoRAUR Suite. And then I added a little Come Sail Away DSP and a couple of goodies from the A Good Man set. Take a look-see:
I started with a piece of Come Sail Away DSP and matted it on Crumb Cake for the card front. Then I used SNAIL and some Glue Dots to adhere a length of new 3/8″ Denim Ribbon.
On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the image from A Good Man in Crumb Cake to start my beach-y scene.
I stamped the image again – on a sticky note this time – and roughly fussy cut it to make a mask. Then I stamped it AGAIN – on some Balmy Blue striped Come Sail Away DSP. I fussy cut just the shirt from that one.
I laid the sticky note mask over the stamped image and then stamped the palm trunks from Dino Days in Crumb Cake twice – when I lifted up the mask, the trees were “behind” the lounging man! 🙂
I colored my lounger-guy with my Light Balmy Blue (hat), Light Night of Navy (shorts); Ivory (skin) and Crumb Cake (“sand” and lounge chair) Stampin’ Blends. Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the fussy cut “shirt”.
I added some Mossy Meadow leaves from Dino Days. I matted the panel on Crumb Cake and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
On another piece of Whisper White I stamped 5 more leaves and cut them with the Dino Dies. I lightly curled each leaf and used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them to the top of the trees.
I stamped the A Good Man sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White and cut it with the Classic Label Punch. Then I edged it with my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it onto the card front with Dimensionals. A new Designer Element in the middle of the palm tree leaves finished off the card front.
On the inside, I added some Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow Dino Days palm trees to a Whisper White panel.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crumb Cake mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Dino Days palms on the front…
…and a little more Come Sail Away DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Now – seriously. Does that NOT look like a totally wonderful way to pass a summer day!?! And – aren’t you glad there are no Dino Days pterodactyls flying by??! I bet our lounging dude from A Good Man sure is! I hope you like!
