By the Sea

My first thought on seeing this colour combination from Just Add Ink was of the beach. Maybe because we live in a seaside town or because of the ink name coastal cabana. Either way I instantly reached for the By the seashore stamp set.

Project Recipe
Stamps: By the Seashore and Itty Bitty Banners
Card: Baked brown sugar, coastal cabana and very vanilla
Ink: Baked brown sugar and coastal cabana
Accessories: Stripes embossing folder (inked and then sandwich card, but not through the bigshot), itty bitty framelits and white bakers twine (squashed in the coastal cabana inkpad) and naturals designer buttons.


  1. The colours are GREAT for a seaside-themed card, Carole. I like the effect you achieved for your background, with the inked embossing folder. Great card; thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week!

  2. A lovely card Carole, the embossing folder inked background, looks great done with the stripes. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.

  3. The background technique you have used on your card is a new favourite of mine too Carole! Love the beachy feel of your card. Thanks for playing at JAI ♥

  4. You are right these colours do lend themselves to a coastal theme and your card has captured this perfectly!

    So pleased you entered in Just Add Ink this week.

  5. I thought these were very seaside colours too Carole. I'm not sure how you have done the background but I really like it. Great mix of sentiment tags too. Chantell JAI

  6. Love that pile of seashells and creatures Carole and the distressed feel to the background. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.
