Die Cut Flip Flops Beach Scene

Good Monday morning.  I have a fun die cut flip flops beach scene to share with you today using the Impression Obsession Better with Flip Flops as the focal point.  I paired it with Flip Flops, Beach Fence, Small Grass Border and Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames.

I hope you'll come check out how I made this die cut flip flops beach scene.

The Sand, Ocean and Sky

I have to admit that the colors for the sentiment and ocean were chosen to match the flower designer paper that I used for the flip flops.  I used a stylus and foam tip to apply tan ink to the sand area of the scene.  I cut an additional strip of sand using my deckle scissors and and colored it to match the scene base.  I cut a piece of Eclipse masking tape, placed it across the middle of the scene layer and applied the navy ink with the stylus and foam tip.  The mask was removed and I used the stylus and foam tip along with a cloud stencil to create the clouds.  I dabbed the stylus foam tip on scratch paper several times before using it with the stylus since the ink was so dark.  I wanted the same shade of blue for the sky but only wanted light touches of it.

The Sea Foam

I heat dried the scene so the brown and blue ink would not seep out onto the white embossing paste.  Then I dabbed embossing paste on the water area of the scene to create the sea foam and sprinkled it with glitter before it dried to add sparkle.

Come check out how I made this die cut flip flops beach scene card.

The Frame, Grass and Fence

I used double stick tape to attach the two largest frame sections together and then attached the sand layer to the back bottom of the frame.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape all the way around the back of the frame and then attached it over the scene card base.  I colored the fence sections and bent them a little bit to make it appear old.  I tucked the fence and grass in behind the sand layer and attached using glossy accents.

Finishing the Die Cut Flip Flops Beach Scene

I cut the sentiment using dark blue paper to match the ocean and flowers in the flip flops.  Oooops…..it was a little to large to fit inside the sky area of the scene without overlapping the dark blue water and making it so you couldn’t read the last word.  I had no choice but to secure some of the sentiment to the top of the frame.  I rolled up a long strip of 1/4″ double stick tape and attached pieces of it to the back of several keys letters and attached it to the scene. 

rolled double stick tape 2

I cut the flip flops out of retired designer paper and attached the pieces together using glossy accents.  I finished by attaching the flip flops to the frame with pieces of mounting tape. 

I hope you'll come check out how I made this fun die cut flip flops beach scene.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut flip flops beach scene with the deep blue sea.  It is a bit unusual but I really like how it pops against the pure white frame and card base.

Framed Beach Scene with Kittie Kits Stamps

I had a fun time today creating a framed beach scene with Kittie Kits Stamps using the Beach Master by Rubbernecker Stamps.  The frame was made using the 5132D Rectangle Combo #2 OPC frame.

Come check out my framed beach scene with Kittie Kits stamps.

The Sand, Water and Sky

I started by applying the sand to the scene using  Antique Linen ink with a stylus and foam tip.  I applied a strip of Eclipse tape across the scene to create a mask for the water line and then applied Tumbled Glass ink with a stylus and foam tip.  I removed the mask and used a cloud stencil and an ink blending tool to apply Tumbled Glass ink to the sky.

The Fence and Sea Grass

I used Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo Distress markers to apply ink to the fence and sea grass stamps and stamped the images around the scene.  I used one of the sand images and Vintage Photo ink to stamp texture around the sea grass and then used a mini applicator to sponge brown to the areas around the sea grass and fence.  I wanted to keep the center of the sand lighter to give the impression of a path out to the ocean.

 

Come check out my summery framed beach scene with Kittie Kits stamps.

Completing the Framed Beach Scene with Kittie Kits Stamps

I applied touches of white embossing paste with my finger to create sea foam in the water and washing up on the sand.  Then I sprinkled the embossing paste with clear glitter to add a touch of sparkle to the simple scene.  I finished the scene by attaching the frame to the scene using strips of mounting tape.

Come check out my framed pretty beach scene with Kittie Kits stamps.

Rubbernecker produced the Kittie Kits ” Cause a Scene” Beach Master set back in 2008 and I had such a wonderful time playing with the images.  Although I mostly use dies in my crafting now I still love creating a framed beach scene with Kittie Kits stamps.  You can take a look at my step by step beach scene tutorial if you would like to see how I made this scene. I hope you are enjoying your weekend and I appreciate you coming by.

Die Cut Tropical Palm Trees

I made this clean and simple die cut tropical palm trees scene card for the Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Tropical Paradise Challenge.  This little card is only 4.00″ square.  I would normally have used a frame for a scene like this but I wanted to stay true to the challenge.

Come see how I made this clean and simple die cut tropical palm trees scene.

The Water Sky Background

I attached a piece of Eclipse tape to a piece of scrap cardstock, punched a circle and then separated the tape from the cardstock.  I attached the negative circle piece of tape to the sky area to the card base and applied yellow ink using a stylus and foam tip to create the sun. Next I used the circle tape piece to cover up the yellow sun to create a mask and applied the blue ink to the sky and water area using a stylus and foam tip.

Coloring Tropical Palm Trees, Hammock and Sand

I used brown and green Copic markers to color the palm trees and a teal Copic marker to color the hammock.  I applied tan ink to the sandy beach layer of the die using a stylus and foam tip. 

Come see how I made this clean and simple die cut tropical palm trees card.

Completing the Die Cut Tropical Palm Trees

I applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the sand portion of the die, thin strips to the back of the palm trees and attached the scene to the card base. 

 

Come see how I made this clean and simple die cut tropical palm trees scene card.

I would like to be laying in the hammock.  I had a great time making this die cut tropical palm trees scene but had to discipline myself not to add lots of extra like grasses, sea foam and sea oats.

Take Me to the Ocean

I had so much fun making this Take Me to the Ocean die cut scene using a monochromatic color palette.  The dies are all made by Impression Obsession.  I used the new Take Me to the Ocean sentiment paired with the Beach Fence, Sea Birds, Mini Shell Set, Small Grass Border and the flip flops from the Single Beach Chair.

Come see how I made this monochromatic Take Me to the Ocean scene card using Distress Inks and die cuts.

The Scene

I created the water and sky background on a white card base using an ink blending tool to apply Antique Linen   I applied a darker shade to the water area and then used a cloud stencil to sponge in the clouds.  I dabbed white embossing paste to the water area with my finger and then sprinkled it with clear glitter before it had a chance to dry.  I hand cut two sections of sand using my deckle scissors, applied Antique Linen ink and then stamped a little texture on both sections using a retired Stampin’ Up! image from the Itty Bitty Background set.  The sand sections were attached to the scene layer using strips of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this monochromatic Take Me to the Ocean scene card using Distress Inks.

Coloring the Images

All the images were cut using white cardstock.  I applied Antique Linen ink to the images using a mini applicator and then added some depth of color by lightly applying Vintage Photo ink.  I wanted the fence and sentiment to stand out more against the tan background so I used darker shades of Vintage photo ink.

Come see how I made this monochromatic Take Me to the Ocean scene card using die cuts.

Assembling the Take Me to the Ocean Die Cut Scene

The fence sections were gently bent it with my fingers and then attached in place behind the sand dune using glossy accents. I tucked a few sprigs of grass in front of each fence section and attached using glossy accents.  The shells and flip flops were attached in place using rolled up glue dots.  I applied Cosmic Glitter Glue  to the edges of the shells and then sprinkled with clear glitter.  I wanted to add another element of sparkle and interest to the scene since it is all one color.  I finished by attached the single gull in place with a piece of mounting tape.  There is something so soothing to me about this ocean scenic card.

I hope you have enjoyed my Take Me to the Ocean die cut scene using monochromatic colors and have inspired you to make one of your own.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Impression Obsession Life is Better at the Beach

Good Thursday morning and welcome to the Impression Obsession Design Team “I Sea You” challenge to create a project with a sea or ocean theme.  I really love the Life is Better at the Beach sentiment and thought it would be fun to use it as the main focus of my scene. For this project I used Better at the Beach paired with the Beach Chairs, Sea Birds, Small Grass Border and Grass

Come check out how I made my life is better at the beach pretty outdoor scene.

The Water, Sky and San

I used an ink blending tool to apply Seafoam ink to the scene base to create the water and used a cloud stencil to create the sky area.  I love how the blue ink is an exact match to the Robin’s Egg card base.  I dabbed white embossing paste on the water area with my finger and then sprinkled it with clear glitter. I attached the scene to the card base using ATG adhesive.  I hand cut two sections of sand using my deckle scissors and applied Tan ink with an ink blending tool.  I used a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp from the Itty Bitty Background set to apply a small amount of texture to the sand using Tan ink. Both sections of sand were attached to the scene using thin strips of mounting tape.

 

Come check out how I made my life is better at the beach fun outdoor scene.

Completing the Scene

I cut very thin pieces of mounting tape to the back of the sentiment and attached it to the scene base.  I attached the chair between the sand dunes using mounting tape and tucked the grass pieces in place and attached with glossy accents.  I applied Mist ink to the bird wings using a mini applicator, gently bent the wings with my fingers to make them appear to be flying and attached them to the sky area for the finishing touch. 

Come check out how I made my life is better at the beach outdoor scene.

Impression Obsession ” Funny or Punny” Challenge

Welcome to the Impression Obsession Send a Little Humor “funny or punny” design team challenge.  I don’t have lots of funny or punny sentiment stamps or dies so I created punny card using a snow globe along beach scene die cuts to create a summer water scene.  The Sea Life Frame and Tubers dies are from the latest Impression Obsession die release.

Come see how I made this fun card using beach scene die cuts.

The Snow Globe

I cut the snow globe image using white cardstock and used mini applicator to apply the hybrid inks listed below.  I especially love how the Seafoam ink is a match to the Bazzill Robin’s Egg cardstock that I used for the card base.  I applied white embossing paste to the blue snow globe background using my finger and then sprinkled it with clear glitter.  I wanted the water to look all foamy and sparkly.  I cut several sections of the small grass and attached it to the bottom base portion of the snow globe with glossy accents.  I cut a second lower portion of the snow globe and colored it to create a sandy beach base and attached it to the snow globe with mounting tape.

The Tuber and the Birds

I cut the tuber guy once using white cardstock and colored using Copic and Memento markers.  I used a dark gray marker to color the wings of the birds.

The Bendi Frame Application

I cut the Sea Life Frame just about 1/8″ larger than the A2 card base so I could create a Bendi Frame for the scene.  I attached mounting tape to both sides of the frame and attached the left side in place first.  Next I bowed the frame slightly and then attached the right side.  If you would like to see step by step how I made this frame you can see my Bendi Frame video in the Splitcoaststampers tutorial page.

I had so much fun making this card using beach scene die cuts.

Assembling the Beach Scene Die Cuts

Once the frame was attached I tucked the snow globe in behind the frame and attached with pieces of mounting tape.  I slipped the tuber in behind the grass sections and attached in place with double stick tape at the bottom and small pieces of mounting tape on the body and head area.  The sea gulls were attached in place with glossy accents and mounting tape for the finishing touch.

Making cards with beach scene die cuts is so much fun.

Thanks for coming by today.  Go by the Impression Obsession blog to check out challenge details and play along with the team.  I hope you have enjoyed my punny snow globe summer card using beach scene die cuts.
