Today, the Trendsetter's get to share a GORGEOUS set illustrated by the fabulous Chris Dark, By the Sea! This set is SO beautiful...classic TSG with fabulous images and beautiful sentiments!!
Did you make your way here from my AWESOME pal Jessie's Blog? If so, perfect! If not, please head on over to the wonderful Chris's Blog and start the hop from the beginning!!!
Now, there is no need to check your computer...you are at my blog and yes, I did create a one layer card!!! Don't tell anyone, but I had SO much fun making it...even without the tons of layers I normally use!!
A few days ago I was perusing an old issue of PaperCrafts and I was SO inspired by a card from Jeanne Streiff using this layout. As soon as I saw By The Sea, I knew I wanted to use this layout with this darling sand pail/shovel image!!
I stamped the pail in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Classic Crest White and colored it with Copic Markers. I cut it out and embossed it with Classic Circle Nestabilities.
I stamped the sentiment, "Can you dig it?", also from By The Sea (don't you love that sentiment!!), directly onto the cardstock. I created a scallop border of cork with the Jumbo Scallops Die-Namics and I added some red ribbon that I stitched on the sewing machine, along with some black gingham ribbon for pop.
Super simple...yes. But I really kinda love it!! LOL!!
