At the Beach

We are heading to the beach this week!

The Stampendous team will be sharing projects that we made using the Beach 5-jar embossing kit.
This embossing kit is perect for creating all your fun summer cards!

Here is my first one that I made using the Painting with Powder technique that you can find on page 92 of Fran's amazing book

What Did I use?

My Colors Cardstock by My Minds Eye® (Sandy Beach, Sky, Poolside)
Adirondack®  Aqua Ink
Recollections®  Gold Brads
Heat Tool
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

 Fold an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Sandy Beach cardstock in half
- Adhere a 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of Poolside cardstock on to the left side of the card.
- Cut a 3 3/4" x 5" panel of white cardstock.
- Apply VersaMark directly to the panel and heat emboss the various embossing powders to create the ocean scene.

-Stencil the Sandcastle stencil over the scene with regular embossing paste and then cover with Golden Sand embossing powder from the kit and heat emboss to melt

 Remove stencil

Using the Picasso Shield, sponge the Aqua ink on the top portion of the panel to create clouds

Stamp the sentiment, color the flags and complete the card!

Check out the Stampendous Blog for links to more projects and to see a fabulous video that demonstrates this fun technique!
