Welcome to another FABULOUS Tlc Blog Hop…”Summer Fun”! Listed below is the hop order. Each of the 14 stops will have a digital freebie to download (for your personal use). Start by downloading the bathing beauties below!
I started out by downloading the image and adding some word art (this is an additional freebie on the Tlc blog!) using Photoshop Elements. Don’t have PSE? No problem! You don’t need any special software to use the digital images. Simply print the file on card stock and color and embellish however you would like.
I printed the image on Club Scrap® card stock, trimmed it out and distressed the edges with a Tonic paper distresser and some Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I didn’t want just a card panel though. After a little Google searching, I found this Center Step Card Tutorial and bonus video!
I adjusted the instructions a bit to accommodate the wider width of my image. My card base measures 7.5 x 8. The side panels are still cut at 1 inch, but I adjusted the cut and score lines for a 5.5 x 3.5 inch card panel.
I love how it turned out!
I used some colored vellum and stamp images from Club Scrap® to create the waves. I stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with copper foil embossing powder and fussy cut the images. The side panels and photo mat are also decorated with Club Scrap card stock.
I used this mini resin frame to highlight the image. I inked the edges with Versamark ink, dusted with the copper foil embossing powder and heat embossed. I added a few sea shells, a little crab charm and glued everything on with some Glossy Accents.
AND of course, a little sparkle with Diamond Stickles! Be sure to download this word art at your next stop on the Tlc blog.
Do more of what makes you happy!
