Day 7:

Today I thought I’m combining two sets which are in the new Stampin’Up! catalog on page 125 and on page 56. Waterfront and Colorful Seasons. After all its summer and the region I live, the temperatures are 91F with a heat index of 102F. Thank God for air conditioners! These sets make for a nice beach card and really it covers all the seasons and I’m sure glad it didn’t make the retire list.

For this card I used Early Espresso cardstock for my base card. I used very vanilla for my second layer which I stamped with Coastal Cabana ink. I inked the image using the Waterfront set. Next I found a piece of dark brown ribbon and adhered that to my inked image. I layered a piece of soft suede cardstock with a piece of whisper white cardstock. Using the waterfront set I inked a water image and a sand image with Coastal Cabana and soft suede. Also included in the waterfront set is a sun image which I stamped in crushed curry. For the chair I used early espresso cardstock and a die from the Colorful Season set. The sentiment was stamped in Coastal Cabana ink from the Waterfront set. I inked the edges with soft suede to give it some color. Adhere the front panels with dimensionals. I stamped the inside of the card combining the waterfront set and the colorful seasons set. I thought that these two set make an awesome combination to create a beautiful, tranquil summer card.
