Anytime I am asked to take my craft room to the beach, I'm IN!! Thanks, Loll, for giving me the opportunity to pull out my all time favorite beachy set again - the Waffle Flower Crafts Sandy Toes combo set!
I won't keep you ... here is my card for the August 2020 CAS Mix Up Beach challenge:
My panel started out as a 4 x 5.25" inch piece of water color card stock. But, after stamping, clear embossing, and water-coloring, I wasn't feeling the CAS look they look for.
The answer? Cut away a bit of the background to leave the star of the show the star of the show!!
Hope you are having as much fun this weekend as this guy is!
I love the joy and enthusiam this stamp conveys. Can just feel the salty air and the crunch of the sand on my feet. Your card is just brilliant...another winner in the offing.
Oh Michele! I have never seen this stamp set - and I absolutely love it! Such a brilliant card - perfect!
Oh my, how I love this guy!!!!!!! This is the embodiment of my emotions about getting the the beach. I LOVE this so much. (will I be buying this set now???)
I wish I was having as much fun as he's having too! That beach looks wonderful and I would love to be there! Awesome and fun scene, my friend! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!
This guy always reminds me of our nephew, he has a zest for life like this! Cute card Michele and your water coloring is fantastic!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! The happy swimmer, the sand, the water, the flung flip-flop...love it ALL!
Like I said on IG, this card is so much fun ...like the gal :D
After reading your post, the cut out BG makes this card even more special, keeping the focus on the real deal here, that happy bather. Love this special card. Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up!
This is just SO FUN! I love that you cut away part of the background... totally made everything POP!!
Oh my goodness, the exuberant joy on his face is fantastic! You've captured the essence perfectly. Your watercoloring is on pointe. Excellent work, my friend!
Beyond fun, Michele ... isn't he so full of energy, drinking in the fresh air, warm waves and soft sand of the beach ... I'd love to be there! Hugs, Anita :)
really fun card and aren't you so clever as to cut it away...smartie.
Your waves and beach coloring is spot on. He’s excited for the beach. I’m headed to the mountains this week. :-)
This card is just too FUN Michelle and has me smiling again even after seeing him earlier on IG! And great idea to cut off the top part to make the card more CAS...that definitely worked!! Think I might need you to add this guy to the pile when we get together next!! Hugs! :0)
You definitely have a CAS card here with this one Michele! I love it! The beach scene is just to cute and perfect. About how we all feel when we get there. lol If I could have ran like that, I would have to save my toes! lol Great watercoloring too. Hugs, Brenda
My sentiment exactly!
Oh to be that free to go run into the waves...I miss the beach. Fab card.
What a fun beach card, Michele! Love how you made your card more CAS (and how you placed the flying flip-flop)! Just looking at this boy makes me happy! "Cheers to the beach!" :-)
I have always loved the beach runner! So much fun!
Your card is so much fun Michele and a great take on the beach challenge x.
Aha! Cutting away part of the background is a cunning trick Michele - will file that away for future reference! The joy of this card is off the scale! Vicky x
Great save for a wonderful result Michele!
Yeow the joy just leaps off this card!
If I were at the beach, I'd be running, hootin' and hollerin' like this guy! Amen to beaches :o)
Super fun card, Michele.
This is so my older brother - ha ha! Really made me smile.
Fun beach card, Michele! Great idea to cut off the top, and I love all of your watercoloring!
No wonder this is your favourite beach stamp set, Michele! What a fun scene you've created!! I love the expression on the guys face as he races to the water. The flung flip-flop is AWESOME! :) Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx
How clever of you, Michele to just cut away the sky to Voila'.. make a CAS beach design:-) So pleased you joined us at CAS Mix Up Beach Challenge with your fun action filled beach scene:-) TFS Hugs...Nancy
This card just makes me HAPPY!! It's pretty much exactly how I look at the beach (minus the trunks)! lol Great thinking to cut out the background - I do hope you'll use it for something else, the colors are beautiful!! xo
