Sneak Peek of Beachy Little Christmas with Watercolor
Today I’m featuring a sneak peek of an awesome new stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog called Beachy Little Christmas. This adorable stamp set celebrates Christmas in the tropics.
Okay, okay, I’m from Minnesota and we have a white Christmas almost every year. It’s very picturesque… but it is also very, very cold. Someday I would love to spend Christmas (or maybe the whole winter) someplace that has never seen a snowflake. I’d make snowmen out of sand, sip tropical drinks on the beach, and never even think about having to put on a parka just to go to the mailbox to check for Christmas cards.
This year, I’ll just think tropical thoughts with the super fun Beachy Little Christmas stamp set.
This card was inspired by Global Design Project Challenge #100!
With this special challenge, each participant gets to choose one of the designers to CASE (copy and selectively edit). It was difficult to chose one person; I wish I had time to CASE everyone! I chose Krista Frattin in the end because I love the watercolor technique she used and I knew I’d have fun playing with watercolor!
Thanks for the wonderful inspiration, Krista!
CASE means Copy and Selectively Edit. The things I copied were the technique with embossing and watercoloring. I also took these amazing tropical colors!
The things I selectively edited were changing the stamp set and using crabs and shells instead of die cut flowers. I also added a Striped Grosgrain ribbon instead of gold sequins and thread.
I’ve got a busy weekend, filled with visiting relatives and working a joint Halloween project with a friend, so I’m going to skip specific card directions for today. If you have any questions about how to make this card, please feel free to ask in the comments or in an email!
Here’s one more photo!
Thanks for visiting and happy stamping!
