Stampin' Up! Sunkissed Beach and Just for Fun

Welcome to my Technique Tuesday Challenge Card. I don't usually do one layer stamping but I did for my card today . Take a look see...

First off, I want to extend my condolences to the team at Inkspirational on the passing of their friend and teammate, Lindsey. I can only imagine what a loss that is. I am entering my card in the Inkspirational Challenge #271 - Technique One Layer Stamping.

I made a similar card on March 9, 2018 but it consisted of 4 layers and an embellishment. It was also colored differently and the sign posts were different. I hope you have time to check it out.

The image is from the Just For Fun Stamp Company and the city names are separate little stamps. I made this for a friend who loves Key West and her mother loves Las Vegas! They've both visited Tampa and Hawaii.

I created my own background for the image by sponging the sky with Balmy Blue ink and stippling the sand with Crumb Cake Ink.. I stamped the cities with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored the entire image with watercolor pencils and a Blender Pen.  Easy peasy card front.

For the inside, again I created my own background...sponging the panel with Balmy Blue, So Saffron and Sahara Sand inks.. The poem/song lyrics by Bob Dylan is computer generated along with the Happy Birthday.

I stamped the Sunkissed Stamp Set palm trees and dune third generation Crumb Cake. I colored the water with my dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends.

"When Jesus heard this, He said to him, “You still lack one thing; sell everything that you have and distribute the money to the poor, and you will have [abundant] treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me [becoming My disciple, believing and trusting in Me and walking the same path of life that I walk].”
Amplified Bible


  1. What a great card! I love it inside and out. Your backgrounds are both gorgeous, and I love that you used the Dylan lyrics. Thanks so much for playing with us at Time Out!

    1. Thank you, Stephanie, I appreciate your comment.

  2. Such pretty soft sponging to create the backgrounds. Thank you for joining the challenge at Allsorts.

  3. It's great how different this card is to your earlier one, so often it's hard to come up with a new idea. This one has a desert feel to it for me. Thanks for sharing with us at Allsorts challenge.

    1. Linby, I appreciate that you took the time to look at my earlier card! Thank you for commenting on behalf of Allsorts.
