ID:  MC Dec/16 - Easel Seaside Scene - ECD Hello - Sit Right Here card
size: 6"w x 6"h (easel closed)

Created: December 14, 2016

I've had enough of Xmas cards... and it's not even Xmas yet Sigh!!!

'm using an "A Way With Words" die from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Hello" also available on Quietfire Design HERE


I'm using parts of 2 quote/sentiment stamps  from  Quietfire Design  

("Garden Bench" 4pce set); ("Find Yourself a Cup...")


Scored, and folded my sage green textured cardstock to create the easel. Cut another piece the same size as my card and adhered to front.

Painted my background sky and sandy beach using QoR watercolors on 90# HP watercolor paper. Used my Misti and stamped the various other elelemnts. The fence and tree (Penny Black "Tranquil") inking with Versafine Black Onxy and some Moss Green, embossing between inkings on the fence with Emerald Creek  "Burnt Copper Leaves" and the sandy area with Distress "Brushed Corduroy". On the rocky area (Beeswax "Coastal Rocks") using the black and embossing with Emerald Creek "Oil Rubbed Bronze". The birds Local King Rubber "Still Life" using the black.

Die cut the "Hello" from a textured cream cardstock and adhered to front.

On the Floor: 

Created a silhouette file for the chairs and shells stamps (Local King Rubber "Dock Desolation" & Flourishes "Seaside Life"), cut from white cardstock for the chairs and gold flecked Brusho decorated cardstock for the shells. Then stamped with the stamps using the green or black and either embossing with clear or gold embossing powder.

Created the stopper scoring a narrow piece of green cardstock and adhering the chairs, then adhering it to the floor.

Stamped the quote with the black, clear embossed, die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Rectangles" sponged the edges with blue and adhered to floor with 3D foam tape.

As a final touch added some gems to the floor and the twine bow.
