Summer Means Beach To Me

Hi everyone this group I belong to on facebook has a challenge this week for using a color which you associate Summer with. I was thinking about the blue of the water at the beach and the blue sky. So I decided to do a card I've been thinking of doing for awhile.

Curtain please!

I printed a photo I took on one of my trips to the ocean on card stock. I then heat embossed the sea gull.  The sand wasn't wide enough in the photo so I added a strip of adhesive cork. I then stamped with Stazon Timber Brown ink the sandcastle on adhesive cork. I hand cut out the sand castle and adhered it on the cork strip.

There you have it my beach card. I love how nicely the sand castle stamped on the cork. The cork adds a little bit of texture to the card and those who know me know I'm all about texture.

Just a reminder that the 50's flashback challenge has begun. Details can be found here: I would love to see your creations.

Hot weather is on its' way so not sure I'll be crafting much as my playroom gets hot. :-(

Thank you for stopping by and wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!


  1. Very creative to print onto cardstock. I love how this turned out, and the white seagull looks terrific. Stamping on cork adds a nice touch too.

  2. I love how nice this turned out. I have old photo's and a lot of cork! May try this soon. Thanks for sharing.
