just “beachy”…


Emma says “Seas the day!”   Reality is… yikes where did the morning go!  I got up at 5:45 a.m.!   I didn’t realize my E000 and E00 needed refilled,  so that equals ruined skin and not from the sun either! lol  Do over… ugh!   At least I used a piece of ribbon!  Why do I have all this ribbon anyway! lol   Oh and I used a deep edger EK Success punch I don’t know if I’ve used before!  Good for me!!!  hip hip hurray!  I even used the stamps I was supposed too! lol


I drew the two lines in the background with a copic multi liner pen… then colored the water and the sand with Copics.  Everything is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Hammermill Color Copy 80# Cover and colored with Copic Sketch markers.  Rosies Roadshow cloud template and Memento Summer Sky ink to ink up the clouds. I used the stamp a ma jig to stamp “Seas the day!”  along the bottom of the card.  A sweet Summer card… Did you have a nice weekend?  I shopped to much… didn’t even leave home! lol  Read a couple books… ttul!

  1. Once again a card that just makes me want to run to my craft room to make one like it! You have the best ideas. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Hi Pam, your card is gorgeous!! I love the beach scene you have created with the cute new C.C. Design stamps. Sounds like you had a nice Memorial Day weekend and took advantage of the discounts that some of the online companies were offering!! Can’t wait to see what you have found on your cards!! Have a wonderful week!

  3. Beautiful card, Pam – that water looks so real and inviting! No shopping for me this weekend. I was very good 🙂 Boring, but good! Hugs…

  4. ‘Seas the day’ lol I love that, what a fabulous card and a great little scene, I love the use of the borders for the beach & waves. Hugs Teresa xx

  5. Looks great. No shopping for me either. Wallet empty. 😦 But had my 2 granddaughters here this weekend, 5 & 3. We gave “Mommy” a baby shower b/c their baby brother is due in a couple of months! So it was a fun weekend.

  6. Hi Pam! Such an adorable card! The best thing is that I had already purchased the stamps so I didn’t have to click on the link!! I loved how you turned the EK border punch into waves! Wow! clever! If I hadn’t already bought a “wave” die I would have had to click on that link too…but then….I still may! hah!
    Thanks for another way to use my beach stamps!

  9. Your coloring on this card is just amazing! I’ve been sitting here studying it & am amazed at it. This is a darling card. I have some Rosie’s Roadshow stamps (quite a few, in fact) but missed the cloud template. Darn! It’s perfect!
