Today we are introducing A Day in Paradise, Moka Lani, Beach Belle, Surf's Up, a new Palm Tree die and a new Wave border die. I have two samples to show you using Beach Belle and A Day in Paradise! Let's get started, shall we?
My first card uses the new Petite stamp set, Beach Belle! The adorable penguins are back for this release all dressed and ready for some sun and surf! Beach Bell is a set of 6 stamps on a 3" x 5.5" full color sturdy storage panel. Beach Belle was illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line.
I paired Beach Belle with some fun Hello Luscious papers from Basic Grey. Some of the patterns from this line remind me of Hawaiian prints and thought they'd be perfect with Belle. Belle was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, was colored with Copics and was popped up for dimension. The the border at the bottom? That's the awesome new Wave Border die. I used it upside down and love the look! I finished the card with some rounded corners using my beloved Corner Chomper, some machine stitching and a button tied with some baker's twine!
My second card uses the sophisticated Cape Cod beach themed set, A Day in Paradise. This set was illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line. A Day in Paradise a set of 21 stamps that come on a full color sturdy storage panel.
I started off with this week's Mojo Monday sketch, Mojo193, although I did change up the sentiment panel to suit my card. I used some of my fave new papers, the Fly a Kite line from MME Lime Twist. The beach chairs were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and were colored with Copics. I paper pieced the umbrella with a pattern from the same line. They were cut out with Rectangle Nestabilities. Some machine stitching, brads and twine finish the card. Clean and simple.....
Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has cooked up with today's sets!
