Hello all! I'm back from another great Stampin' Up! Inspire, Create, Share Convention! It was so great to be with my stampin' friends again-many of whom are on this blog hop!!! Got lots to share with you over the next few weeks! So excited!

So welcome to those visiting from Amanda's blog! Glad you are here! Helen is taking a nice, restful week off this week! Hopefully she'll be back next week! Be sure to hop on to Liz's blog next!!

So here's my card:

Here is the inspiration photo:

Here are the Stampin' Up! colors:
So this week summer weather FINALLY hit central Massachusetts! My kind of weather! So I decided to have a little summer fun with this card! I live for the beach, so this made me think "ocean"!

The ocean is the star of the show here. It's simply card stock with torn edges that have been inked & sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds glitter! I thought it looked a little like the spray on the waves as they break.  Nothing major, but fun!

The 2 little cuties are from Sea Street! I LOVE that stamp set & look for opportunities to use it!  The beautiful sun is from Kinda Eclectic, with a bit of Crystal Effects to make it sparkle, and the sentiment is A Dozen Thoughts.

I did use a template sort of punched from the Tree Builder Punch to make the clouds. They're subtle, but they're there! I added a bit of Rose Red to kind of give it a sunset (or sunrise!) kind of look. It turned out just ok. A bit heavy tho.

Anyway, just a fun summer beach card to help enjoy the season!!!

Happy Stampin'!

  1. Great idea, Joni. I love what you did with the ocean. And those cute little critters jumping out of that rough sea is a nice touch. Good job.
