It’s the monthly Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop! AND… the theme is celebrate summer. Oh my – so MANY bundles to chose from to share. I chose a new bundle in the 2022 Annual Catalog called Seasoned Chic. There are papers that coordinate – for several seasons – so you’ll see more use of this bundle & DSP this week :O)

Seasoned Chic for Summer.1

Does this remind you of the beach? It should with all the shells :O) I started by doing some stamping and die cutting. On Basic White card stock I stamped the larger shell from Seasoned Chic stamp set three times in Sahara Sand ink, another in Petal Pink ink, another in Sahara Sand & Petal Pink inks ~ and die cut them all with the shell outline die from the Chic Dies. I die cut two outline dies of the same shell design: one in Shimmery White and the other in Distressed Gold. I pulled out another shell die and die cut it from Shimmery White card stock & another in Rose Gold 12 x 12 Specialty Foil. I also die cut the ‘netting’ in Gold & Rose Gold 6×6 Metallic Specialty Paper. (CLUE… I should NOT have used that paper for the netting. The little pieces were a nightmare to remove! But… I like the contrast & texture it provides for this card, so in the long run it was worth it.)

I then cut a piece of the Texture Chic Specialty Paper and mounted it on slightly larger Gold Foil. I put dimensionals on the back and adhered that to a Sahara Sand card base. Then the layers began… netting first, adhered with liquid glue; then shells – some attached with liquid glue and some with dimensionals and some with both. The little ones were tucked in with dabs of liquid glue. I would Linen Thread in a circle and slipped it under one of the shells with glue dots. Finally… Faux Sea Glass Shapes.

Seasoned Chic for Summer, inside

Again on a Basic White panel, I stamped the shell: detail in Petal Pink and the more solid stamp in Sahara Sand (stamped off). This piece was adhered to the inside of the card – and done!

Seasoned Chic for Summer.3

Envelope… more of the Texture Chic Specialty Paper on the flap and another shell stamped on the front in Petal Pink and Sahara Sand inks – both stamped off first. Love, love the final card ~ and of course, I hope you do too.

I can’t wait to see what the other gals have created for the hop. Hit the previous or next buttons to travel on.
