Whimsy Stamps Collaboration | Beach Sunset

Hi everyone! I’m back with a new collaboration post for Whimsy stamps

For today’s spot, I decided to showcase the (OMG) so amazing Build-an-Island die:

I’m SO in love with this die set. The palm tree shapes are simple but with enough details to make them so delicate and wonderful. The surfer and the seagulls are fabulous additions. I created a sunset background using Distress inks and blending tools. I cut a circular shape and used it as a mask for the sun. I sponged several colors (yellow, orange, pink, purple and blue shades) over the card front to get this beautiful blend. The photo doesn’t show it but I fixed the surfer and the palm trees with foam pads for more dimension. I adhered the seagulls with glue. To finish off my card, I stamped the Relax sentiment from the Happy Place stamp set and added some Wink of Stella clear glitter to the seagulls.

That’s all for me today! Thanks for visiting my blog!
