Beach Thank You Card

Hi all! Welcome to my blog post for my 3rd thank you card made for my daughter, Kristin. If you've read my last 2 blog posts you'll know that she requested 3 thank you cards from me - a masculine card, a bright and cheery card and a beach card. And here is the beach thank you card.
The card is for a couple so I thought 2 chairs and 2 beverages were perfect. High Tide stamp set was used for the sand, the grass, the water and the glasses. The Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies were used to cut the adirondack chairs out of Wood Textures DSP and Crumb Cake card stock. I layered the 2 pieces together with Tombow Liquid Adhesive to make the chairs a bit sturdier.

To create the sinking sun, I cut a piece a masking tape with a 3/4" punch on the edge so that it was not a complete circle. I placed the negative over the top of the blue water and ink blended (Stampin' Sponges) a little Crushed Curry pulling some into the water for reflection.

Here are all 3 thank you cards: Bright & Cheery:

Masculine card: 
Finally, the Beach card!
Kristin loved the cards and I enjoyed making them for her. If you like to purchase any Stampin' Up! items from my online store for the Beach card just click on the links below. I appreciate you stopping by!

CAS Stencil Challenge May 2019

If you read my last blog post, you know that my daughter, Kristin, asked me to make her 3 thank you cards. A masculine one, a beach type card and a bright and cheerful. That blog was my bright and cheerful: 
Now for the CAS Stencil challenge for May, I made the masculine thank you card. The challenge is to stencil over a colored background.

I started with Shimmery White Stampin' Up! paper. It helps with ink blending and has a nice subtle twinkle. Using Stampin' Sponges cut into 6ths, Pool party was the first color I laid down in a soft circular motion about 3/4 of the way down an A2 size card front.  Next, came Bermuda Bay done the same way, but not as far down the card.  Lastly, Pacific Point was ink blended just towards the top 1/3 of the card front.
I made my own stencil by running the leaves stencil from the Tropical Thinlits through the Big Shot with retired card stock. Using the homemade stencil over the ink blended card panel, I ink blended Pacific Point basically towards the top only. This was new technique for me, ink blending with the same color that was in the base. It really came out striking in real life. Very rich in color.
Next, I ran the panel through the Big Shot with one of the Layering Square Framelits. I centered it on a Whisper White panel that was also run through the Big Shot with a Rectangle Stitched Framelit. Once I knew where I wanted it, I stamped the dotted frame from the Swirly Frames both on the top and bottom of the area. The stencilled square was popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals and placed between the dotted lines.
The sentiment is from A Big Thank You stamp set. I placed the word "Thanks" on the Stamparatus so that I could stamp over it several times to get a nice rich color with Pacific Point ink. While wet, I immediately sprinkled with Clear Emboss powder and heat set -a beautiful Pacific Point embossed sentiment! The front panel was adhered to an A2 size card base of Bermuda Bay card stock with Tombow Liquid Adhesive.

This technique was really fun and easy. I'll have to try it again soon! Check out the CAS Challenges. They have links on videos on how-to do the challenge technique and there is so much to learn!
