Layering Love By The Shore

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Layering Love By The Shore

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Layering Love By The Shore Side

The second I saw this paper pack and this pattern in particular, I immediately saw deckchairs. It’s probably more accurate to consider old fashioned boating blazers, but it’s definitely for water type stuffs!

So I created my card using 2 of the papers from the By The Shore pack and loved the pairing I’d made. I wanted to separate them a little, so my panel of DSP is the lovely Dapper Denim that’s the stripe in the middle with a trio of the matching enamel heart shapes along it.

I didn’t want to be to twee and matchy matchy with my card, so the little twist of rustic-like linen thread worked just right for me as an elevated decoration, but then I decided that I wanted to keep the rest of the card flat, hence the Layering Love sentiment stamped straight onto the paper. That’s a style I can’t remember ever doing, but I rather like it!

So I hope you like my card today, whether you see it as a deckchair or a boating blazer or as something else!

    Suitably nautical Sam. It is peeing down with rain here in Sydney today….so this is a welcome ray of sunshine ooxx

  3. Reminded me of the caravan awning and the wind-breaker we used to take down to the beach Sam. The pack certainly invokes memories of childhood summers. Thank you.

    Lovely Sam,
    And I, too, forget about stamping on DSP. Thanks for the reminder.

    Like this card! Don’t think I had really noticed this paper, but I LIKE that! Like what you did w/ stamping directly on the paper! I am such a butterfly and flower “nut person”, but sometimes it is nice to have something entirely different! This is just perfect!!!
