So here is what I came up with.

Beautiful layout featuring the Stamp of the Month to create the flowers, Treasured Friendship stamp set and the gorgeous Seaside Paper Pack.


flowers straight cu-490
Here’s a closer look at the pretty flowers I created with this month’s stamp of the month. I stamped them using my Juniper ink pad and then colored them in with my marigold marker. For the centers I used some gold sequins and then added a brown gem from the sparkles brown and tan assortment set.

shells closer2-490
Here’s a closer look at the border. I used some champagne cardstock and then tore the edge. I inked the torn edge with my dessert sand ink pad to simulate sand. I added the zip strip behind the torn layer to give the appearance of a sand dune fence in the distance.

shells cu-490
Here’s a closer look at some of the shells. I stamped them with my desert sand ink pad and then colored them with my various Touch Twin markers and some of my colored pencils.  Once I colored them in, I added just a touch of diamond stickles to give them just a bit of glistening shine. I also added some more gold sequins and some more of the brown gems around the shells and flowers.

burlap title closeup-490
Here’s a closer look at my title. I used some of the wonderful May Arts Burlap ribbon. I cut the edges and inked them to give them more of a beach-weathered look. I stamped the sentiment onto some Champagne cardstock with my desert sand ink pad.  I finished off the look of the title by adding in a couple of brads from the Rosewood Assortment set.

Here’s how I did the title

burlap pieces cut edge
Start with some of the May Arts Natural White Wired Burlap Ribbon. I trimmed off the wire on both edges and pulled a thread or two from each side.

Next I took my piece of cut burlap ribbon and “dabbed” the edges into my desert sand ink pad. Sorry the photo is blurry, but you get the idea. I did this instead of using a sponge to ink the edges as I wanted a more intense color and using the sponge will pull some of the threads from the edges and I did want that either.

Here is what the inked edges looks like versus a plain piece.

burlap piece finished-490
Here’s my finished piece ready for my title. TIP: to adhere this to my layout, I used a regular glue stick. The consistency of the glue stick allowed it to grab to the fibers of the ribbon and allowed it to adhere nicely to my background paper.
