Creative Nugget: The design for this card came from the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The curves on all of the panels were cut with the Leafy Edge Borders Dies. The middle and bottom layers were cut from papers from the new By the Shore Collection. The top layer was a mixed media scrap from my stash and was cut and embossed with the Sunburst Background Die. While the card stock was still in the die, Color Burst pigments were sprinkled on, spritzed with water, and dried with a heat tool. Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink was then sponged on the sun rays to brighten them up a little. The clouds were cut with the Clouds & Raindrops Dies, and the sentiment was embossed on one of the clouds. The sandcastle from the new Sending You Sunshine stamp set was colored with Copic Markers and cut with the coordinating Sandcastle Die. Some sand and small shells were added for texture and a jute twine bow attached to finish the card.
Creative Nugget: The panels of this Center Step Card were layered with blue card stock and papers from the new By the Shore Paper Collection. The Rope Background was white embossed on mixed media paper, water colored with distress inks, and cut to fit the side panels. Copic Markers were used to add a horizon to the DP and the edges were pierced with one of the Pierced Rectangles Dies. The pelican from the By the Sea stamp set was stamped right on the DP and again on a piece of Neenah card stock. This second pelican was colored with Copic Markers, fussy cut, and popped onto the center panel of the card. A sentiment was embossed on a hand cut banner. Cheesecloth was dyed and tucked behind the sand dune cut with the Leafy Edged Borders Die across the bottom of the card. Some glittery enamel dots were colored and stuck to the card for a finishing touch.
