Continuing with the challenge

It’s been a while since I have last posted but this summer has been rather busy and I have not worked on cards at all. One can only do so much! 😛

Since it is summer, I wanted to create at least ONE summer card. I bought Impression Obsession’s Beachcomber stamp because I fell in love with its simplicity of childhood theme. I also had bought the IO Die 190-C Chair and flip flops.  050816 beachcomber dies stamps.jpg

As I was playing around with the stamp, I wanted to try doing paper tole. I colored using copic pens. I had done a number of ones with colored pencils but the colors were too bright for the effect I wanted.050816 beachcomber relax.jpg

For the second card, I wanted to do something I hadn’t done before. I saw on Pinterest a tri-fold shutter card and wanted to try it out. The instructions though were confusing. But, I found a site,, which gave instructions. I changed the size down to make it a standard A2. I also used Graphic 45 paper, which I love! I almost hate using it because it is so pretty!
