One of the things I love most about the stamping community is how open everyone is to sharing ideas and techniques. There is a little thing called CASE which stands for copy and share everything! We all pull ideas from each other. I love that ❤…
Recently while scrolling through Facebook, I saw a super cool technique called Faux Ripped Edge. I knew right away I had to try it. The person showing the technique was Patty Bennett! She is awesome by the way. And has several cards on her blog showing this technique.
One of Patty’s cards is a beach scene. Which I had to CASE!!! I changed up the stamp set and s few colors. But, you can defiantly see Patty’s beach scene in my card. See Patty Bennett’s card here and a great video of the technique
I know from the moment I saw the holiday catalog I had to have Beachy Little Christmas. This cite stamp set has everything you need to make fun beach themed Christmas Cards
That palm tree with the lights is the cutest thing ever!!! And the hut is so adorable! But, my favorite image is the crab with the holly. How adorable
I love this card from the Holiday Catalog! It is super cute and shows all the fun ways to use the stamp set!!
- I used three different coloring techniques. The Faux Ripped Edge Technique, my Stampin’ Wright Markers (and a blender pen), and ink blending with a sponge brayer and sponge dabber
- The Ripped Edge technique uses glossy paper. Witch is quite different from working with whisper white or even shimmery white. The ink sits on top of the paper and then slowly absorbs into the paper. So it my take you a few times to get it down right!
- To do this technique you rip paper and use the edge as a guide to add ink directly from the ink pad to the glossy paper. I used Pool Party, Tranquil Tide, and Sahara Sand
- The background is silver embossing with ink blended on top.
- The last detail is the star and ribbon. The star is from the Year of Cheer embellishments
- The colors used were Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Sahara Sand and Wild Wasabi. There is a little Smoky Slate on the hut. Can you see it???
Each of your comments makes me smile! Please, comment HERE.
