  • mask your scored line with Post-It notes
  • Stamp man in chair in Memento Ink on right flap
  • Stamp man in chair on a Post-It note then fussy cut him out.  Cut around his legs so you can get coloring under chair
  • Using Blending Brushes, sponge Pale Papaya at top then work down with So Saffron, Balmy Blue then Crumb Cake
  • Stamp "sand" speckles at bottom in Crumb Cake
  • Color man with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers (Light Night of Navy for hat, dark Daffodil Delight for shirt, Light Misty Moonlight for shorts, dark Mint Macaron for chair, and Light Petal Pink for skin)

You can now adhere your Very Vanilla folded card to the piece of Soft Suede and then add that to the Coastal Cabana card base.

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Welcome to our March Blog Hop - Marching Into Spring

It's coming... it's finally coming!  Have you ever been so excited to see spring coming more than this year?  I, for one, feel like winter has lasted forever and that we have been locked inside since I don't know when.  I am sure its likely because, this month, we will be in what I call Covid mode, for a year.  Spring to me is new life, renewal, fresh air, bright colors, flowers and more.  Bring it on!

For my Marching Into Spring project, I chose to combine a few of my favorite products.  The NEW (starts March 2, 2021) Butterfly Bouquet, the Forever Fern Bundle, and semi-new Many Messages Bundle.

Let's take a look:
