Summer Seaside Sampler

On Monday, when I posted about the Blog Candy I'm giving away at the end of the week (click here for a chance to enter), I hinted at a big project that I was going to share with you today. That project is finished and it is a Summer Seaside Sampler - a 12" x 12" piece of home decor that evokes summer and the beach and the sea! I designed it for my Tea & 3D class this month, but wanted to give you a peek at it as well.

  • This makes use of 4 primary stamp sets along with coordinating dies where possible:  High Tide, Colourful Seasons, So Many Shells, and Seaside Shore. Along the way I threw in the Bike Ride bundle and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.
  • I took the opportunity of using up some of my retired Neutral Designer Series Paper Stack, which I still had a lot of, as a background designer paper over my base of Flirty Flamingo 12" x 12" cardstock.
  • The basic square here is 2 1/8" x 2 1/8" while the long pieces are 2 1/8" x 4 5/8" and the large square is 4 5/8" square.
  • I used some Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper as well as some Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack in the background of some of the squares.
  • The wave and sand texture stamps from the High Tide stamp set were incredibly helpful for the scene panels that I created - the beach chairs, the lighthouse and the sandpipers. My basic colour palette is Flirty Flamingo, Sahara Sand, Bermuda Bay, and Crumb Cake along with Whisper White. It creates a very beachy appeal.
