These Inspired Challenges-Beach Day

I love the beach! I mean, looooovvvee it! The beach is my happy place.Give me a good book, some magazines, and I can lie on the beach all day. I love to hear the waves crashing in; such a soothing, relaxing sound to me. I love to capture these feelings in my beach theme crafts. When I saw that These Inspired Challenges was having a beach day challenge, I knew I wanted in.
Check out my card:

This is now one of my favorite stamps. I want to be her, relaxing in the sun, with a slight breeze, and of course the waves. The stamp image and sentiment are both Unity. They come from the June 2019 Kit of the Month, summer celebration. I used Prima water colors, an Art Anthology spray, and added a metal charm with the word, paradise, on it.
Until next time my lovelies,

Friends of Unity Blog Hoppers, July 2019, Vintage

Hello friends! I love all things vintage and I especially love creating vintagy projects. Is that even a word? I don't know, but I am rolling with it. Lol! Check out the cue:

No photo description available.

Initially I was going to make a card or two, then I decided to do a decorative piece. I started with a plain, no frills, galvanized box. I added vintage style pattern paper by Prima to the outside and the inside of the box.

Here is my creation:

The stamped vintage woman is from the Unity March 2019 SMAK Kit, just want to be me. This is a large stamp. I water colored her with various water colors from Prima and Stampin' Up. I cut her out using a stitched circle die by Gina Marie Designs. I also used two journaling cards from Prima, metal floral spray by Tim Holtz, metal boot by Prima, tickets by Prima, Prima butterflies and flowers, and a Prima resin embellishment. I think later I will add some note cards and/or tags to create a gift.  I wish you could see all the sparkle and shine on the stamped image. It is really pretty. You're just gonna have to trust me.
