Vicky Papaioannou at Clips n Cuts blog is an art journal and card maker extraordinaire She lives in Greece, surrounded by the incredible Mediterranean Sea which inspired her latest journal page using some of our beach themed products!
She has a splendid video to watch with great detail for your inspiration into a porthole view journal page design. (plus we have to admit we’re in love with her gorgeous accent!)
Stop by her blog post today for more on this fabulous project.
Vicky used our Seashells stamps set, included template and die set, plus the Beach 5-Jar Embossing Kit for her project. We just love what she did with them.
It seems in just a few shakes of the jars from our Beach Embossing Powders Kit, it is already time to wrap up our inspiration week of Beach Basics projects with beautiful artwork by Fran Seiford.
Remember those great little chipboard pieces we posted at the beginning of the week? Fran gives them a mixed media style finish by adding them to canvas for impressive wall decor.
We sure enjoyed sharing all these terrific ways to use our embossing powder Kit by itself plus with our beach themed stamps and stencils. If you missed our earlier posts you can jump to them right here for Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Our At the Beach Pinterest board has grown with all the projects shared this week, so feel free to stop by there for inspiration at a glance.
There is one more round of beach fun projects from these designers posting today. Enjoy!
We hope you are enjoying the Beach Basics theme this week and ready to double the embossing inspiration with our Thursday stencil products.
Pam Hornschu has a fantastic Canvas Trio project that shows off the fun layering that happens between embossing pastes, stenciling and heat embossing. Each canvas has great texture, dimension and a splash of embellishments sure to inspire.
The technique for the beach and sea floor on these canvas pieces ties them together swimmingly.
Here’s one more fantastic project, also designed by Pam Hornschu, combining both embossing techniques on a smooth glass bottle. The results are just stunning!
No need to wait for more inspiration, just stop by these designer’s projects today with a treasure of ideas.
Make a splash on your projects with beach flair! Fran’s Beach Embossing Kit can create waves of fun for cards, scrapbook pages and 3-D projects! Laura Drahozal’s card above is one fantastic beach walk dream. Be on the lookout for project information on her blog later this week.
Think of the fun conversation piece these placecards will be at your next summer beach themed party! Janelle stamped and rolled her driftwood placecard right up to an embossed beach. Now that’s a clever project. Look on her blog this week for more project information.
Stumped for how to add embossing to your project? Fran Seiford thought about that and released a new book this year with tons of terrific techniques to help you plan your projects from the basics to beyond. It’s a must have reference for any crafter!
Here are the participating designer’s with a project today.
We’re getting back to the beach this week with a few basic elements. A clear blue sky, waves of crested water with a sandy beach landing all set in place with just a little heat.
Fran masterfully melts her favorite embossing powders, now in a convenient 5-jar embossing powder kit, with a few household supplies and here she is showing how they work together for an amazing piece of art.
Here are more beach inspired projects today from our design team.
