Our current challenge at 52CCC is:
When I am making cards, I will often stamp/colour/die cut duplicates so I can “play” with different arrangements. I like to make a variety of slightly different versions. For this challenge I made 6 Christmas Cards using Simon Says Stamp’s, “Santa at the Beach”. If you ever wondered what Santa does after Christmas – the secret is out. With the challenge being drinks, the stamp set was perfect with Santa and Friend having a cocktail on the beach! I coloured the images with Copic Markers. The sentiments were either from the SSS same set, or Avery Elle’s – Cheers. I also used a Cocktail stamp from Paper Smooches – Free Spirits.
Card 1 – Using torn paper, I was able to create a sandy beach. I fussy cut the images and layered them on the card base. Some were popped up on foam tape for added depth.
Card 2 – using torn paper as ocean waves and sand with fussy cut images. I just made a simply card with Santa enjoying some needed vacation time.
card 3 – used cocktail glass stamp from Paper Smooches – Free Spirits to make a background on the blue card base. The images were fussy cut and arranged to show Santa and his buddy at the beach.
card 4 – I fussy cut the images and using dimensional tape I popped up some images for a more 3D effect.
card 5 – I made a one layer card. I stamped Santa, table, and the Penguin first, set the masks in place then stamped the tree and surf board. The stamp was added last.
card 6 – I used torn paper for the sand, fussy cut and layered the images.
