SUITE: Sand and Sea

The Annual Catalog Inspiration

Sand and Sea Suite

Bring on the beach! Even when the seashore is far away, you can make it feel like a beach holiday with the Sand & Sea Suite. Whether you are chasing away winter blues with a beachy card or reliving vacation fun with memory keeping, you'll love the ultimate coordination of the Sand & Sea Suite.

This suite is unlike any other! The largest die in the coordinating die set can create a card-front-sized focal design or background. It can also be snipped into smaller individual die cuts. All of which coordinate with stamp images. Plus, the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder can emboss the large die cut with incredible detail or it can be used to emboss the smaller coordinating images. This is next-level coordination that you've got to try to believe!

If that wasn't enough, there's a whole collection of gorgeous Designer Series Paper, sticker sheets, Pearlescent Specialty Paper, and Opal Rounds embellishments that will add luxurious luster to your Sand & Sea projects.

You'll love letting your creativity set sail with the Sand & Sea Suite!

The tutorial below shows a technique that's a fun twist on the traditional heat embossing. Enjoy creating this beautiful card stacked with detail and texture.

January - June Mini Catalog

CARD: Soar Confidently (Fun Fold!!)

Today's card features a great masculine set found in the 2021 Jan-June Catalog:  Soar Confidently.  This is a wonderful set for all the men in your life--great sentiments, too!!

And, check out the fun fold!!


You could also add a pocket on the middle panel and put a gift card in there! 

As usual, here are the supplies used -- simply click on them to be taken to my online store!


CARD: Berry Blessings

This is a great bundle for Sale-a-bration!  You'll earn both the stamp set AND designer papers FREE with a $100 purchase!  Great deal!  And, it's super cute to boot!


I used Rich Razzleberry and Granny Apple Green on this card!  Colors were taken right from the designer paper--a trick I often used when "stuck" on color choices.  (we have so many to choose from--it's hard sometimes!)

For the raspberries, I "stamped off" first, so that they are lighter than the sentiment.  Great trick to make your colors go further!

Here are all the other items used in today's card:


CARD: Ornate Thanks Bundle

Today's card highlights another of the wonderful Sale-a-bration items:  Paper Blooms Designer Paper.  The colors in this paper are sooooo pretty!!!


I paired the paper with the Ornate Thanks Bundle--I haven't used this very much, and I'm not sure why!  It's a photopolymer set, which makes it VERY easy to use--you can see exactly where you're stamping!  And the dies are so pretty -- very "ornate"!! haha!!

Here are all the supplies used -- just click on any of them to get right to my online shop!


CARD: Darling Donkeys

I know I said the Flower & Field DSP was my favorite Sale-a-bration item, but Darling Donkeys is a very close second!  He's just so darn cute!!!  Here's a super quick card--you could make a pile of these in just a few minutes!


I used the In Good Taste Designer Paper for the fence posts -- there are several designs in the pack that could be used!  The Donkey was colored in with Stampin' Write Markers (Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink).
