Cottage Days - ECD Summer - Thoughts of You
Yogi here today with a summer memories card...
I'm using an electronic file Cottage Days from Quietfire Design on the front which you can find in the Silhouette onLine store.
And I'm using one of the newest die sets from Elizabeth Craft Designs which will be available soon. "4 Seasons" - loving this set. Also available on Quietfire Design HERE
And of course a card wouldn't be complete without at least some Quietfire Design stamps "Remember That The Earth..." 8pce set; "Life Journey Words" 6pce set; and part of "When I Saw This..."
Scored and side folded my cream toned cardstock (5"w x 7"h).
Stamped the fishnet background using Versafine Black Onyx on Bee Paper "Recycled Sketch Paper" (it's brownish kraft type color) and clear embossed. Swiped over it with Distress acrylic daubers "Tumbled Glass" and "Broken China"
Die cut the frame from white cardstock using the 2 largest of the long stitched line dies (Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Rectangles"). Sponged with "Tumbled Glass" and "Broken China", then hit the edges with some "Tea Dye" and "Ground Espresso. Adhered the fishnet background to the frame.
To get the sandy looking border - Applied Sookwang tape around the edges of the card, adhered my fishnet piece, then embossed the border, sprinkling with Distress embossing powders ("Pumice Stone", "Scattered Straw" and "Brushed Corduroy"). Burnished with my finger.
Created some background papers using watercolor paper and Brushos in a multitude of colors... Went a little wild... Then eCut the stamp shapes (if you don't have an electronic cutter, you can fussy cut around your stamped images. I'm lazy though...), stamped with the black and clear embossed the largest starfish and the seahorse. For the smaller starfish, stamped with Distress pads and embossed with Queen's Gold or clear. Also cut the "Cottage Days" and embossed using Emerald Creek Hot Stuff "Turquoise Shimmer" embossing powder.
Adhered all the elements to my card front.
On the inside: stamped the quote ("Remember That The Earth..." 8pce set) on the left side of the card using the black and clear embossed. (ps I normally don't stamp on the left side, but since there are several layers on my front, the stamping won't show through...)
Die cut the word "Summer" (available on Quietfire Design HERE) from more of the Brusho watercolor paper and adhered to inside.
Stamped the word "Memories" ("Life Journey Words" 6pce set) using the black and clear embossed.
Another of the Designs By Ryn stamps the sea spray bubbles, also cut from the Brusho watercolor paper, stamped with Distress "Mermaid Lagoon" and embossed with Emerald Creek Hot Stuff "Midnight Sky" embossing powder. Adhered to card along with the smallest starfish.
Stamped part of the "When I Saw This..." stamp, masking off the upper section, using the black and clear embossing.
Hope you enjoy how I made this card.
