Stampin' Up! Meets Joy Clair Jeep Beach Birthday

Good Saturday morning. I'm back with a card I needed for a birthday dinner last night. We ate a smoke house and their pulled pork was pretty good except a little too salty. Everyone else had baby back ribs.

This was perfect for our friend who lives not too far from us and she has a jeep and wears aviator sunglasses! Her jeep has a few more running lights but I'm not THAT creative!!

My card base is Calypso Coral 4 1/4" x 11", scored and folded at 5 1/2". I cut a Whisper White mat 4" x 5 1/4".

Using the masking technique, I sponged the sky with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry. Unfortunately, it doesn't show up too good in the photo.

Still using the same technique, I stamped the waves from the High Tide Stamp Set by stamping off once in Pacific Point ink. I sponged that area with Pool Party ink.

For the sand, I used the little grainy stamp with Crumb Cake ink. I sponged the remaining beach area with Sahara Sand ink.

The sentiment, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, is from the retired Well Scripted Stamp Set.

I stamped the jeep and sunglasses from Joy Clair's Good Vibes stamp set on scrap Whisper White in Tuxedo Black. Then I colored the jeep with Light and Dark Smoky Slate Blends, Light and Dark Pineapple Punch Blends and Light and Dark Basic Black Blends. I sponged the windshield in Pool Party. For the sunglasses, I sponged in Blackberry Bliss and Crushed Curry. I stamped the palm trees in Tuxedo Black. Both the jeep and sunglasses are fussy cut. I can't wait to get my Christmas present set up and running. It's the Brother SDX125E! Hopefully Santa will bring me a Light Box too.

Now, on to the inside of the card...

For the gift card side, I cut a piece of Brights DSP 4" x 1 3/8", used my Tear & Tape Adhesive on the sides and bottom to adhere it to the card base.

I took a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock, stamped the surfboard in Calypso Coral and sponged the mat so the white would not be so bright. The sentiment is a 1994 Hero Arts stamp that Carole had in her supplies. I punched one corner with the Detailed Trio punch.

I'm playing at Creative Knockouts #329 ATG. If you have a chance, check out the Design Team's cards. There's one card that fits me to a's the one by Jessica. I also hope that Cute Card Thursday #613 thinks that my card is cute!

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope to have a card ready for you tomorrow.
