Beach Scene on Glossy Paper

Patty and I were at it again. I will be sharing all of these cards in the next week or so.

First up is our Beach Scene. I will say that stamping on Glossy Paper takes a bit of practice. As you can see in this first card, I smeared the ink in several places. You have to be careful, stamp, then lift straight up. It dries pretty quickly and I really love the results. So for Patty’s card we used the Fabulous Flamingo on page 177 of the Annual Catalog. I didn’t have this set when I recreated this card.

So here is my version. I used several stamp sets. Butterfly Basics for the Ferns, High Tide for the long stems, Hello Friend for the flowers. The sentiment is from Colorful Seasons, and the chair is from the matching Thinlits, Seasonal Layers. You can find all the links below.

I made these and a few more for my Stamp Club Gals Thank You cards. I will say this batch was better than the first. Sorry for the glare, its really hard to get a good photo when using the Glossy Paper.

Start by doing the ocean and sand. Patty has a video you can view HERE.

I took a sheet of computer paper and tore one edge. Used that for my water, the straight side I used for the horizon and then tore another one for the sand.

Secure the Glossy Paper onto your grid paper with Washi Tape or any tape that is re positional (comes off easy without tearing your paper).

Now you will start making your water and sand. Using one of the torn edges lay onto the Glossy Paper and drag the ink pad across the bottom. Move that up and use Bermuda Bay to add a couple more layers. Then use the straight piece for your horizon. Take your “sand” scrap paper and do the same thing, drag either Crumb Cake or Soft Suede across. You will have to pounce the Crumb Cake to get dark enough for the sand.

Next stamp the fern in Lemon Lime Twist & Emerald Envy. Sometimes I didn’t re-ink my stamp. After that I stamped the flowers in Real Red first then the “stems” in Emerald Envy, you will have to stamp a few times. Its funny that they almost perfectly line up with the flowers which are one stamp and from another set. Score!

Stamp the sentiment in Island Indigo and add your heart from the Metallic Shapes. Die cut your chair in Real Red from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. I stamped the class in Daffodil Delight & used my red marker for the straw and then die cut it. The chair and glass are adhered with the Fine Tip glue Pen. You will need to put something heavy over the top of the chair for a couple of minutes. This will help keep the chair from moving before it dries.

I know this may seem like a lot of steps and stamp sets, but, I’m telling you, so worth it.

    Loving your beach scene card and colors! Great sand dunes with flowers growing in them instead of just wild grass clumps! This has certainly become one of my new favorite bundles so far, yes, even over the Delightful a Daisys! TFS!
