Summer Lovin' Blog Hop with PaperWorksCo


Hi and Welcome!

So glad you could make it to the next release of stamps from PaperWorksCo using images from Rachelle Anne Miller (RAM).  The blog hop is sure to be an exciting one and I KNOW you won't be disappointed with the fabulous images that are coming your way!

You should have arrived by way of Bella's blog but incase you haven't started from the beginning, you will want to go back to the start here so you don't miss out on anything!



So I get to show you the delightful 'Day at the Beach' - isn't it just the cutest!  I LOVE the beach so putting this card together was just so much fun for me!  I decided on an easel card as I wanted to incorporate at least one shell into the card and this was how I wanted to do it!  The image is coloured with copics and the papers are from Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety pack (the July papercardkit).  The punched seaside border was a gift from a friend (but I think will have to be a permanent purchase one of these days!!!) - it's so perfect for this card.  I punched out one of the little circles and placed it on the image to represent the sun.  I added some white ric-rac to give the feel of waves.

Close-up of the image

This photo gives you a clearer view of the sandpaper I used to really give the card it's final 'beachy feel'.  I added a shell, the sentiment (which I love) and some more ric-rac.


I certainly hope you love the card and have enjoyed what I've done with this cute image!  Your next stop is the ever-so creative Sunghee - you certainly won't be disappointed I can assure you!  In case you get lost here is the full list of the blog hop team!

You hit this card right out of the ball park...that is for sure.Danielle you coloured your image perfectly with the copics....beautifully done! I love how you punched out the paper to resemble the sun! An easel card really was a great idea for the sea shell to sit in the middle! LOVE IT! Love the sandcastle punch!
