Hello Hoppers! Welcome to this week's 
Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop!
As you read this I am sitting on a beautiful beach on Cape Cod! Totally loving this summer weather! Summer in New England only lasts a blink, so I'm trying to take advantage of every moment!!!

So you probably hopped here from Helen's blog! I KNOW she has something amazing for us this week!!! Then on to Sandy's!!! She always has a beautiful creation for us to see!!!

Here's my card this week:

Here is the inspiration photo:

Here are the Stampin' Up! colors:
So I got to play with a bunch of my new goodies! There are 3 stamp sets here! Yup! I know that's a lot, but I just couldn't stop! lol

So first is the Weather Together stamp set! I love this umbrella! It's not supposed to be a beach umbrella, but that's all that's on my mind right now! lol No rain!!! The cool thing is it has a great Umbrella Weather Framelit set that coordinates. I'm not sure if you can see it in the photo, but at the edge of the umbrella, there's some embossing going on. That's actually a separate framelit in the set! There are several to choose from! Love that!!!

Next is Botanical Blooms stamp set. That's just the leaves in the corner! I love those leaves! Tropical.  They are cut out with the Botanical Builder Framelits.  The stamps were used for the details in the leaves. 

Lastly, the every popular & frequently used Gorgeous Grunge! Ya, it made the specks on the sand. That's all.

I used another of my 16-18 In-Color Enamel Shapes. I think I've already used more than half a package! They are so versatile!!! Love em!!!

So a fairly simple card, but it shows where my mind is right now-at the beach!!! And that's where it will remain until further notice! lol  So take 5 from the sun & go hop around a bit! Enjoy!

Happy Stampin'!!!


  1. So pretty. Love how you did both the sand and that gorgeous background. Wish I were there on that beach, or perhaps on your beach. Enjoy Cape Cod.

  2. Joni your love of all things "beachy" really comes through in this awesome card. I love the mix of stamp sets and the colour matchup. The "beach" umbrella is awesome. Thanks for sharing your great card!
