Club Scrap July Linky Party: Sea Breeze

Welcome to the 
I share with you some card ideas
made with the CS July Sea Breeze kit
in paper and digital.

I start with the paper cards I created with craft paper
and digital printed paper and reral rubber stamps.

Here you see the hybrid Sea Breeze papers I printed 
and the wonderful rubber stamps.

Card #1 has a border from the pebble paper
and images stamped on a separate piece of craft paper
and colored with pencil.
Light colors of pencil do it perfectly on kraft paper.

The shells are added with foam tape and a little
silver glitter glue on top.
The sand is made by hand with a white gel pen
and some sticky white pearls.

For the bottle I added some glossy accent after coloring
to have the glass effect.

Card #2 is created with the pebble paper 
and a cut out panel.

For the letters I used thes Stampin'Up! thinlits.
I taped them down with washi tape, so they do
not move when I run them through the bigshot.

So behind the cut out letters I glued the pebble paper
on the card and used some foam tape between this paper
and the kraft paper.

Some more cut out shells and a starfish decorate the 
stamped birthday greetings.

Card #3 and #4 are beth made with the
Sea Breeze hybrid kit and photoshop
on the computer.

If you like these cards and are not very good
with photoshop, I don't mind if you save them on 
your computer for future use. I did not put my watermark 
on it, so you can pretend you made it ;-)!
Here a sample of what you can do.
I just printed the images, cut and folded them into a card.
Then added some bakers twine and some left over
shells from my previous paper cards.
On the shells I added silver glitter glue.

Thank you again for looking
and have a creative Summer day!

I sea coffee!

You know by I love making coffee cards
and I try to make them with all the kits I get 
from Club Scrap. This months kit is
called Sea Breeze and here you see what I came up with.

The base of the card is paper from the Picnic kit July 214.
The lettering is done with thinlits as well as the cups.
The design papers are printed from the Sea Breeze
hybrid kit. You find the kit here.

The sea shells are stamped with the Sea Breeze rubber
stamps and colored with pencils.

The inside is also decorated.

Hope you come back on Wednesday, 
when there is the Club Scrap
linky party and share more ideas with you.

Thank you for looking and
have a creative day!

The Beach

In The Netherlands it is a very hot Summer
and that means playing at the beach for the grandkids.

Here is a digital scrap page with images from the
Club Scrap Sea Breeze kit with my grandson.
Thank you Maria for your pictures!

Here you see all the images of the
Sea Breeze hybrid kit and only $ 4,95!!

The other part of the family was on another beach:
They found a little crab in the sand while playing.
Luckily I had this crab from the  Club Scrap Boardwalk kit
June 2016, everything else is Sea Breeze.

And how about even making a fitting
name tag with the digital images.

Thank you for looking

Little gift find

Today I shopped at our local dollar store in The Netherlands,
here known as "Action" and found this cute glass candle
with the pot on top of the lid. I knew right away i wanted
to alter the labels.

Also I came across this rock idea somewhere on a blog
and I just had to give it a try.

The images are digital images by Verve Stamps.

The candle inside the glass.

My first try, have to find all the right materials,
for i am not totally satisfied, but it does looks so cute.
It is just a rocjk from my garden.

Thanks for looking 
and have a creative day!

Create with TLC vintage pictures

On the Create with TLC blog there are
 a lot of vintage pictures and some of them are just great
for making cards.

Just print a few if the images, get some left over scrap paper,
a ribbon and a sentiment and you have a great card.

Here I added a cut out sentiment
and a golden butterfly.
No special techniques on these cards,
just adding the images.

This one is good for any occasion
with the flower image, a little butterfly
and a lace ribbon.

I enter these cards for the 
Crate with TLC challenge #21 HERE.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Progressive challenge Limited Runs

Here in The Netherlands it is a wonderful
hot and humid Summer day. A day to have coffee
outside in the garden and read a good book
under a parasol.

I have been making my card for the 
Limited Runs Progressive challenge
on Facebook. Every time we get a new
image to play with. This time it was 
a wonderful cupcake.

In the back i started with the Tim Holtz star stencil
and red and blue ink. Pieces of washi tape are also
for decoration and the finishing touch on the
background panel.

The coffee cup is a Stampin'Up! die and
Club Scrap Firecracker paper. The star on the
cup is an old SU! paperpunch.

And here is the cupcake. I colored it in photoshop
and printed the image 3 times  to make a 3d version
with foam tape in between and little sticky pearls
in the heart of the flowers.

The digital sentiment is by Verve Stamps. 
So sad that this shop has closed. 

I enter my card on the linky of the
for I used one of the sponsors images.
Limited Runs stamps also always provides a freebie
at the blog hops that are held.

Back to my coffee in the garden!

Thanks for looking 
and have a creative day!
