Beach Time

It's Beach Time at Double D, at least that is our theme 
starting today!

We have a fun 'beachy' mood board for inspiration
but you can create anything as long as you follow the 
Beach Time theme!


My biggest problem was deciding 'what' to use as I have quite a nice 
assortment of beach themed dies and stamps to choose from!

I ended up selecting these beach cabana huts from the
Bo Bunny 'Life's A Beach' stamp set.  This fun stamp set had so many options
to choose from, but I let the top middle picture on the mood board inspire me!

This is the first time this stamp set has seen ink and looks like I have
had it since 2017!  About time I used it I think!
I inked up some sand and sky, added a few sea gulls and an anchor and made the huts pretty
colorful with Copics.
Though I live in Michigan, just over the state line and probably about 45 miles
from here in Indiana is Michigan City that has fun beach houses for rent 
in all kinds of pretty colors, that is where I got my idea from to make pretty
colorful houses.  We used to drive by and see them as with all the colors
together, it is quite a site to see.
You can google them and see for yourself!!!

Take a visit to Double D and see all the summery 'Beach Time'
creations by our fabulous design team, join in with us too!

What a delightful scene of fun and colorful beach houses! Beautiful inking of the back ground and coloring of the houses. Makes me think of boogie boards and all of the fun we have at the beach.

Those cabanas are fabulous, love them in their fun colors! There are 'flower cottages' down in P'Town and your little cabanas remind me of them. Nothing better than opening a door and stepping right on to the sand! Love your pretty sky and sand too! Great creation!

OMG how cute are these beach huts! You sure have a lot of cool things in your stash!! Awesome job (as always) my friend!

Barbara said...

I live right on Lake Michigan and I sure wish we had colorful fun cabanas like this on the beach. I love this card and the cute and perfect cabanas from the mood board.

I love the ink blended and spattered background for your four fabulous brightly coloured beach huts Diane and the added die cut and anchor and sentiment finish it perfectly. Thank you for joining us over at the NBUS Challenge this month. x

Stunning card and super design, everything is just gorgeous .

Darnell said...

Love your colorful beach huts, Diane, and you did an excellent job creating the beach and sky! My ideal Craft Central for retreats with friends would be a huge row of just such huts and a large conference center filled with tables for crafting! A girl can dream! Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell

Such a pretty card Diane! Love the bright colours and it has such a happy summer feel to it.

Birgit said...

This is such a cute card Diane! Sometimes I wish we used these little beach huts here in the states. Your row of brightly colors beach huts brings a smile to my heart.

Leslie Miller said...

I love your beach huts! We don't have anything like that here as our beaches aren't all that warm. The huts would probably blow over, too. Your card depicts such an inviting scene, sigh. So cute! You and me both on the aged NBUS, sheesh. I'm really trying!
