Paper Craft Crew 129

Late last weekend, I received quite a big Stampin' Up parcel from my demonstrator and I haven't really had the chance to play with all my new stuff. I fully intended to with this sketch from the Paper Craft Crew but while I was putting stuff away, Wetlands happened to catch my eye. And just like any old friend, I gave her my attention and the next thing you know, I'm making a card with her!

And it would also seem that my lingering love affair with Lost Lagoon isn't over yet either! All products used are Stampin' Up, except for the sentiment.

Update: Delighted to make it as a Featured Artisan with this card at Paper Craft Crew.

Card: Lost Lagoon, Whisper White, Crumb Cake
Stamps: SU Wetlands, SU By the Seashore, Clearly Besotted Say it in Style
Ink: Lost Lagoon, Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Early Espresso
Other: Pretty in Print embossing folder, Linen twine, dimensionals, oval framelits, Early Espresso marker pen, sponges.


  1. What a wonderfully beachy card. Great for a male card too. Love the way you've sponged the background, it's perfect! x

  2. Oh that is gorgeous. I love that beachy scene you've created. Great use of the stamp set with our challenge. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Craft Crew. Carolyn xx

  3. Oh, Jan, I love the way you've mixed those stamp sets. What a great card! I love they way you've used the reeds for your background. Thanks so much for joining us this week for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge.

  4. Jan, this card is absolutely gorgeous. I love the background and the coloring with the birds. Beautiful. Thanks for playing along with the Paper Craft Crew.

  5. I saw your card on the Paper Craft Crew and I love it! The colors and stamping are just gorgeous! Thank you for sharing such a beautiful inspiring piece. I'm saving it for inspiration and would love to case it sometime in the future, giving proper credit of course. We live by the beach in Florida and I know my girls would LOVE this!

    1. Mary, thank you so much for such an encouraging comment! My family loves the beach too.
