Stampin' Up! Day at the Beach

Today is the last day to get your hands on Stampin' Up!'s Day at the Beach stamp set.  It's everything we love about summer; flip flops, the beach and of course sunshine!  I don't know about where you live, but here in Minnesota Mother Nature is taking her sweet time in bringing us warmer weather.  I thought I would CASE a card from the Occasions Catalog and show you how quick and easy it is to make a card.

Here is my CASEd card:

Here's the recipe for this quick and easy card:

  1. Cut a piece of Pool Party card stock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2" and fold in half creating a card that is 5-1/2 x 4-1/4".  TIP:  I find that I have less breakage at the fold line if I do not score first.  
  2. For the background, randomly stamp the starfish using Pool Party ink.
  3. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to 4 x 2-1/4" and using a corner chomper, round the corners to 1/2".
  4. With Stampin' Up!'s Archival black ink, stamp the flip flops three times and the sentiment from Builder Birdcage.  Sadly, today is also the last day to get the Builder Birdcage stamp set :(.
  5. Color in the flip flops using Stampin' Up!'s Watercolor Pencils. 
  6. Go over the colored images with Stampin' Up!'s Blender Pen.  TIP:  Use a light touch and don't go over the image too often.  This is Whisper White and not watercolor paper, so it might start to pill.
  7. After all the images have been blended, "wink" the flip flops.
  8. For the finishing touch, dot the "i" with a Basic Rhinestone.
Now, wasn't that easy????
