Karola here with new inspiration of Sand and Sea collection today!
As I mentioned early, I’m totally in love with the colors of our new collection. I love the choice between cool and warm tones. I chose the warmer ones today for my set of two cards – salmon, delicate red, teal…
Started, as always, from the background paper, this time I decided to create double layered background using B side of Beach This Way sheet as a 1st layer and Coral Reef as well as Sea Creatures papers on my 2nd layers of the background. In fact, I used 8 x 8 Sand and Sea paper pack (it’s perfect for cardmaking and mini albums!).
As you can see, I cutted out a few beautiful designs from papers: starfishes, seashells, seahorses and jellyfishes to build my layered and dimensional projects. In addition to the above mentioned papers, I also used Down Under sheet, full of amazing designs ready to cut out! As in my previous project – yesterday’s layout – here also used natural keepsakes I always love to collect on the beaches I visit. Driftwood, dry grass, seashells are perfect addition to the theme of my cards. They certainly add authenticity to the project…
I decided to use some stamping this time. Since I received stunning Valerie Ouellet stamps line, I just love her designs and can’t resist to use it this time. I stamped and embossed with a white powder a beautiful leaves from Valerie’s You Are Loved Stamp Set . Also, used gorgeous sentiment from the same stamp set and stamped it using black in, then cuted out and stick with dimension.
I hope I was able to inspire you a bit with my today’s cards. I think the “seaside” theme is perfect for so many occasions, especially if card recipient loves sea or similar topics.
Have a wonderful start in creative month of June!
