Challenge # 179 - Sea and Sand

Hello to everyone and I hope you had a safe and fun 4th of July!

Summer is in full swing here in South Texas and what says vacation better than this weeks
challenge of Sea and Sand?

Tammy Hobbs

For today's Sea and Sand challenge, Tammy thought creating a little beach scene on a postage stamp base of Buff Ivory might fit the bill. Her sand is made of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock. She used Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock for her palm tree base, and the rest were bits and pieces she found in her snippet pile. She has advised to never throw any scraps away as you never know when they come in handy. The card base she started with today, is made of Kraft Cover Weight.  She followed by matting some solid pieces of cardstock that compliment her focal image adding a large scallop border to the top. Next she took a length of Vintage Winter White Bias Tape and wrapped it around the card front in the center and tied in a bow adding a button to the center which was threaded with Red Baker's Twine.  Lastly, she stamped a sentiment in red ink onto a hand-cut banner from Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock. For additional pictures and a complete supply list, please visit Tammy at Creating Somewhere Under The Sun.

Kristi Schurr
Kristi let the colors of sand and sea inspire her for this week's challenge. She began her card with a Brown Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock base cut at 5.5x6 inches.She then layered a blue distressed panel on the base. Kristi die cut a tan patterned patterned paper piece with a scalloped border punch and adhered it to the center of the card. She added another distressed blue patterned paper piece on top of the scalloped piece. After pleating a piece of eyelet ribbon, she adhered it to the middle of her card with a little hot glue. She then wrapped a piece of Hemp Cording around the entire card front and tied it into a bow on the left side. She them added two bows made from Oatmeal Cream and Vintage Winter White Seam Binding. She added some small sea shells and a small piece of cheese cloth to the bow cluster. Kristi then stamped the sentiment on a tan piece of patterned paper cut into a fish tail banner, and adhered it to the card front using foam tape.

Anitra created this bright and cheery birthday card using Lunch Bag Note Cards.  These note cards are a great supply to have on hand, and because they come with a coordinating envelope creating cards is so simple.  First Anitra matted a piece of gingham paper to the front.  Next she created a beach scene using a sand patterned paper along with some Vintage dictionary pages.  Next she colored the background in shades of blue.  She then matted the scene onto a pinked circle die cut.  She then added the sentiment and crab and present embellishments.  To bring more color into her card Anitra added some seam binding and Bright Hemp Cord.  She then added a ruled sticker to complete her card.  For more information on Anitra's project please visit her blog Stamping While They Sleep.
