Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – By The Dock Bundle

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.

Happy crafting
