I made a little scene using ink spray, inks and gesso. I added the final details to the water with markers. To finished my card I added some the Grass and and one of the Sea Bird dies and some Sand Ultra Fine Flower Soft for some added texture.

I colored the white parts with my watercolor paints.Watercolor background by Daniela Dobson

For the sentiment, I used one of the brand new dies Greetings Top Edgers. I die cut it from black glitter paper. I layered it over a piece of white cardstock covered with washi tape. As a final touch I added enamel dots to the flowers.

Birthday Cupcake Card Tutorial by Jeanne Streiff

Jeanne Streiff shares a cheery birthday card today using CL462 Sweet Treats CLEAR Set and the matching DIE113-Q Cupcake Die Set.

Birthday Cupcake F Jeanne_Streiff

I started out by painting some simple stripes onto white cardstock with Shinhan Poster Colors.

Birthday Cupcake Jeanne_Streiff

Next I created a wash with the paints by adding water for my cupcake parts (this creates a matching but lighter more transparent color).

Beach in a Box Tutorial by Karen Amidon

Wowzers! What a fun project from Karen Amidon!

Karen uses the following IO products:  A5364 Sunny Smiles, DIE109-C Single Brach Chair, DIE186-G Plane with Banner, DIE177-K Beach Chairs, Die176-E Mini Shells, DIE182-K Mini Beach Fun Set, DIE101-D Ocean Border, DIE068-A Cloud Die Cut Trio, DIE191-E Palm Trees

 
 
 There is so much going on inside this small pop-up box card! The Plane that's flying through the Cloud Trio actually comes with a banner that is trailing behind it. I thought about adding, "Eat at Joe's Crab Shack" but I wanted the card when fold to fit into an A2 envelope! 
 
 
This is the view of the front when the box is closing flat.
For the beach scene the Palm Trees were placed in the back along with some waves created with the Ocean Border Die
 
 
You can see the different layers here with the side view. The sand castles have a light cover of sand on them. I have used a waxed rope for the handle on the pail. These dies and the shovel all come in the Mini Beach Fun Set. I also tucked a few Mini Shells in the pail.
 
 
The Beach Chair that I used inside the box comes as a set of two. Soon I will be sharing a really fun card I made with those! The Single Beach Chair on the flap comes as shown with the pair of flip flops...loving these!
 
 
Here's the back of the box with its flaps down. This shows that darling Mini Shell Set. I used four out of the 7 shells that come in the full set. This sentiment seem to fit perfectly..."Sending Sunny Summer Smiles"!
 
 
Folding flat, ready to mail, and I'm dreaming of a beach trip!

Have a great day!
