Beach Bound!

It has been a GREAT summer already! We have had so much fun. In a few days, the kids and I are heading to PA to visit my family for a few weeks. Sadly, dh will be left behind to work :( (But....I think he might manage to squeeze in a little fun time here and there.)
Our first stop will be to the NJ beach---woohooo!!!

So, I jumped on the American Crafts challenge (to create a card or layout featuring at least two American Crafts products AND stamping).....and created a BEACH card:

I paired the My Favorite Things Pure Innocent stamp set-Beach Bum with lots of American Crafts goodness to create this scene.

I used some American Crafts adhesive fabric paper for the banner (Garden Gala), clouds (Fanciful Flutter) and strip along the side. (I used the MFT Cloud trio die to cut the clouds.) The fabric paper adds so much texture to cards/layouts...I love the look.

The image was colored with Copic markers and I paper pieced her swimsuit. The sandcastle and bucket were also paper pieced. I added a rub on for the sentiment (Pounce Phrases-American Crafts). I added a touch of American Crafts everyday ribbon to the side of the card to finish it off.

Materials list:
American Crafts- Mini marks rub ons-Pounce Phrases; Adhesive backed fabric paper- Fanciful Flutter, Garden Gala; Ribbon-Everyday; Designer paper- I Do: Freesia, Spring: Sunny Spot, Everyday: Aloha, Botanique: Vivian.
Other-Cardstock-white (Gina K Designs); Memento tuxedo black ink; Stamps-Beach Bum (My Favorite Things); Dies-Jumbo Scallop, Cloud Trio (My Favorite Things); Copic markers.

Back to laundry!!!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
