Beach Friends

Good morning everyone!  Hope you all are having a wonderful week so far!   I would like to share a card that I made using the Beach Friends stamp set.

Using a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of white CS as the card base, place 1/4" Tear-rific Tape around the edges and glittered using Waterfall glitter.  For the background a 2 1/2" circle was used to create a mask for the sun. Once you have created the background, ink the bottom portion of the card with versamark ink and emboss with Hit the Beach EP. Sea Shells Mudd Puddles were added to the embossed area.

Tape the circle to the 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" piece of white CS with removal tape.  Using sponges ink around the mask using orange ink and yellow ink.  Remove the mask and blend inks.

The image was stamped with black ink and colored using copic markers.  Stamp a 2nd image, color the friend on the left and fussy cut out.  She was then placed on top of the 1st image using a pop dot.  The images were glittered using a glue pen and Waterfall, Spirited GreenBubble Gum glitter. Fussy cut out.  Surf Beach Glass Mudd Puddles was placed along the bottom.

Using the Surfin' Woody, stamp set, stamp the palm trees, colored with copic markers and glitter the palms using Spirited Green glitter.

The beach friends were placed on the background paper.  The palm trees were placed behind the old friends.

The sentiment was stamped with black ink.  Fussy cut out in the shape of a cloud, and the edges glittered using a glue pen and Waterfall glitter.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Have a wonder day and remember....Keep Stamping!


  1. Great card, Belinda! Beautiful scene (thank you for showing the masking technique), and lovely colors. I had never thought about using the mudd puddles sparingly in this manner, and it is a marvelous idea to create a wonderful effect! Thanks for teaching me that today! Wonderful card. hugs, de

  2. Great job Belinda! Love all the beachy detail! The Hit the Beach and Mudd Puddles look fab. The masked sun is wonderful, and your beach babe scene is awesome. What a fun scene - with lots of sunny sparkle!
