Simply Sunday: A Seaside View

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

It’s been a crazy weekend so far, not sure what happened to my post yesterday but it never “posted” … so today, I’ll share both cards with you. Yesterday I was going to share my version of a fun “summer night” … but I’m going to start out with my Simply Sunday card share.

Today’s card is not only simple to create but brings you back to simpler times on a warm sunny day …

I used the Seaside view stamp set for both my cards today. I used the “watercoloring” technique for my card … it’s quick and easy and the sublte color is perfect for this card. Can’t you image yourself relaxing in the chair with a cool lemonade?

My grandma and grandpa had white adirondack chairs, so mine had to be white … memories! So I got my pop of colors come from the Bermuda Bay table and the lemonade … thus the So Saffron banner!

Yesterday’s card is a bit more detailed!! I applied the sponging technique along with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol markers. It’s my vision of the perfect summer night …

I stamped my image with the Black Momento ink and then added the black horizon line. Then I used a Rhinestone for my sun … and sponged Daffodil Delight around it (then pulled it back off) I also used Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy for my sky and water. I then highlighted the water with the Markers.

The plants, chairs and deck were all done with the Stampin’ Blends markers. Oh yes, and a touch of Real Red for the sail on the boat!

I hope you enjoyed today’s cards and this delightful stamp set. With a few fun techniques you can take this set from simple to spectacular … and everything in between.

Thank you for stopping back again today. I’d love to hear your thoughts on today’s cards.

Happy Sunday!
