Happy Retirement

Hometown-Greetings---Close-

G’Day Stampers,

Once again I’ve been playing with the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies & have been wanting to use them other than for Christmas.  We created 2 cards in our class on Friday using the same Dies but both very different which I will share with you later on in the week.

For my card today, I cut 3 of the houses from Whisper White CS using the smaller Die & then cut them back to the size & shape I wanted before colouring with the Watercolour Pencils so that they looked like beach huts.

For my scene, I masked off a circle for the sun punched using the 1/2” Circle Punch & then coloured with the Watercolour Pencils.  Once the mask was removed I lightly coloured the sun with the Daffodil Delight Pencil & carried it through onto the ocean.  The sun was highlighted with the Clear Wink of Stella.

A circle has been cut into a piece of Whisper White CS overlapping on the left hand side of the Card using the Layering Circles Framelits.

The chair is from Colourful Seasons (available in a Bundle) & has been stamped direct onto the same Whisper White in Bermuda Bay & the seat in Crumb Cake Inks.  The drink is in Pumpkin Pie.

The branch has been stamped in Crumb Cake while the flowers are in Daffodil Delight.  To pop them a little more, I then added Pumpkin Pie to the centres & blended with the Blender Pen.

The piece of scenery was then adhered behind the stamped Whisper white & trimmed from the left hand side before layering onto a piece of Crumb Cake CS & then to the Base Card – Bermuda Bay.  The beach huts were then adhered in place with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments & stamped direct onto the Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black.  To finish the card I randomly adhered Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the front & flower centres.

Why not give it ago & check out your stamps & Dies with new eyes.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
