My base card is white.  I used the Lawn Fawn Hillside Stitched Dies to create the sand using Crumb Cake SU card stock and the ocean using Pool Party SU card stock.  The Gorgeous Grunge stamp set from Stampin' Up was used to create the sand and water lines using matching inks.  The little girl image is from the Seaside Wishes Stamp Set from SugarPea Designs. The sandcastle and the shells are created from this set, too.  Copic Markers were used to color the images.  The background is created with Stormy Sky Distress Ink and a blending tool.  The sun is cut using Daffodil Delight card stock and the Mama Elephant-Stitched Sky Die set.  Wink of Stella is added for lots of shine in the sand, the girl and the seashells.  

You can see what the rest of the DT created for inspiration by clicking on their names below. I hope you will check out their blogs and then come and play along with us.


  1. What a fun, summery card, Claire! It makes me long for warmer weather, as it has been a long cool spring here. I love the way you captured the different textures of the sand, water and sky and you colouring is just gorgeous.
