Stampin' Up! Greeting Card Idea - Brayered Beach Scene

Need a Stampin' Up! greeting card idea?  Get out your Stampin' Up Brayer  and create this beach scene by brayering the sky, water, and beach with the inks listed below.  Then use the Stampin' Up! Plant Hope Stamp Set to add palm trees to your scene. 


My daughter asked me to create a card with a beach scene for a special person who lives in the Northern Virginia area where one typically cannot see the blue sky because of smog.  So she wanted to send a card his way with a blue sky, sunshine, palm trees, and the beach!  I am so glad that I no longer live in that area.  I love the sunshine in Florida, and this card makes me want to go to the beach!  The Gulf Coast beaches are much lighter in color than I made it in the scene (I got it too dark).

The products used to create the card include the Stampin' Up! card stock in Baja Breeze, So Saffron, and Whisper White.  The Classic Stampin' Pads used were Baja Breeze, Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, and So Saffron.  The Stampin' Up! Photo Corners Punch was used to create the So Saffron and Baja Breeze photo corners.

Very cute card and yes, it made me want to come to FL...especially because my feet are cold!!! Love the card and thanks for sharing!

Where in FL are you? We just just visiting there last week, about an hour north of Orlando. Spring is a great time of year in the Midwest but it still gets chilly at night.
