Beach Happy - Embossed Resist Watercolour Background - Video Tutorial


In today's Video I show you how I created these cards. I've been playing with the Beach Happy stamp set all week and have really enjoyed creating with it :o)


The large centre panel is Watercolour card. Stampin' Up! do sell this in small packs but I didn't use theirs (will link it below). I purchase mine in large books and used the Strathmore Cold Press Watercolour card. 

I used my Stamparatus to emboss the Trees and then Watercoloured the background using an Aqua Painter.


This card was inspired by one from our current Spring / Summer catalogue (UK page 37 - you will know which one I mean as soon as you see it). I fell in love with this card, which is what caused me to purchase the stamp set in the first place. I didn't copy the card, but instead created another with a similar feel :o)

The Crushed Curry paper mat comes from the Classic Garage 6" Designer Series paper stack. The patterns on this paper are really bold and bright with designs aimed towards masculine projects. The reverse side is much more muted with subtle designs. These are very useful for cards for many different occasions.

Here is the Video ...

Beach Happy - Sunny Days


I have another very simple card to share with you today .... again using Beach Happy :o)

Crumb Cake, Real Red, Pool Party and Whisper White is the colour  combination .... one of my favourites!



The Stitched Shapes framelits are my most used dies. You get Ovals (my favourite), Circles and Squares in the set and they are all just perfect :o)

I used the Layering Circle and Layering Square dies to cut the scallop Real Red mats to layer under the Whisper White panels.
