Enjoy Every Moment

I would like to thank Diane over at Newton’s Nook for selecting my card as her Inky Favorite! (Helen F. shows amazing creativity with limited summer-themed NND products.  She creates a beach scene in which her lady from the Sips & Stories stamp set can enjoy looking out while sipping a cup of coffee.  She adds amazing details to make this an amazing beach bungalow including a kite from the Delightful Doxies stamp set and flip-flops using the Beach Bum Thongs freebie.  Such a relaxing scene!) Much appreciated!

A big thank you also to the team over at Pammies Inky Pinky Challenge for selecting my card for an Honorable Mention. Thanks so much!

Hello and welcome

This week I couldn’t resist combining the Challenges over at Newton’s Nook and Time Out as I could combine 2 of my favourite things – the beach and books.

I started by stamping the images from Newton’s Nook – Sips & Stories stamp set, Distress watercolouring and fussy cutting, along with the kite from NN – Delighful Doxies stamp set and the Freebies – Beach Bum thongs.

As I didn’t have many NN stamp sets, I decided to make a beach scene through the window.

To add to the beach theme, I also used some old wooden cube images from local Queensland stamp company which has sadly closed. I love the cute little beach images and hoped they looked like book pages or covers.

The background features Darice brick Embossing Folder.

I used Mama Elephant – Window die.

The bench seat uses a Cuttlebug EF using a scrap of packaging.

The sentiment is from NN – Porch Swings Friends stamp set.

I had lots of fun putting together this cute little scene.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Stay safe

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
