For last week’s Card & Cuppa I designed a project using the By The Dock Bundle.
This is a discounted Stamp Set and Die Bundle from the new Mini Catalogue and is great for more male-themed projects.
My project is a combination of several of the samples shown in the catalogue.
I used Seaside Spray and stamped tone-on-tone for the water. The Crumb Cake dock, birds and sentiment were all stamped in Soft Suede.
A few greens were used for the reeds and grass with Mossy Meadow and Old Olive cardstock and Garden Green stamping.
The co-ordinating dies were used to cut out the various shapes. You’ll notice that I chopped the bird off the edge of my dock!
There is a Birthday sentiment in this Stamp Set, but it was too large for the effect I wanted to achieve. Therefore I used the ‘happy birthday’ from Timeless Tulips cut out using the Classic Label Punch instead.
The dock, greenery and birds were all softened using a Blender Pen.
Everything was then assembled onto the Seaside Spray piece and finally attached to the base card using Dimensionals.
I love how serene this scene looks, I could quite happily sit there watching the world go by.
