May SNS Blog Hop - On The Beach

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the May "On The Beach" Blog Hop from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  If you arrived here by way of Barbara Bruder's Blog  then you are at the right place, but if not and you want to be eligible for great prizes, then click here to start from the beginning. WOW.... by now you should be getting inspired. Are you having fun? On the beach!!!!  What a great time for this blog hop as the weather here in Washington has finally stopped raining and is now warming up a bit...

Prizes will be awarded, so don't forget to leave comments on everyone's blog, 'cause that's how you become eligible for the prizes that are to be given away. This is a 2 day blog hop so you'll have plenty of time to view all the projects and leave comments.The prizes are stamp sets, flocking, glitter embossing powders, etc.  BTW, there are 3 designers who've been designated to have prizes "hidden" on their blogs, so comments are important and we LOVE getting comments.They really make our day. So without further adieus, here is the card I chose to share with you for this blog hop...

 

For this card, I started with a simple medium blue cardstock base making my card A2 size.  I used I cut slits in a 5 1/4 X 4 sheet  of Super Adhesive Sheets and removed the individual backing pieces 1 by 1 adding each glitter color individually making the graduated effect from sand to water, to sky and sun....  The rest of the card is really simply put together.  I stamped the lawn (beach) chair and colored it with copic markers, I cut my nestie frame and tied a couple ribbons to the edge and then I attached everything to my glittered background...


Thanks from me and the rest of the SNS team on this blog hop. Before hopping on to Cammy Vietzke's blog, please leave a comment here on my blog to be eligible for a prize.... Now don't forget to return to Sparkle N Sprinkle so that you can purchase everything you saw while on our blog hop so you too can recreate all of these wonderful projects..


In case you get lost on your blog hopping trip, just return to Sparkle N Sprinkle and look at all of the wonderful projects again...  :)

Oh, Keri! This just goes to show that great minds think alike - LOVE LOVE LOVE your glittery card and the amazing colors in your "landscape" or "mosaic" style application of the glitters. Would you believe I did something similar in my card, too? But the images we have used are completely different. Beautiful card, Miss Keri! hugs, de

Very inviting setting, Keri. I am ready to lounge and relax with an ice cold lemonade in hand. Love the background colors and texture that the glitter adds to this scene. The ribbon is a nice finishing touch too.

The way you applied the different colors of glitter give the card an appearance of movement but the chair still appears to be sitting in the sand. That is quite the accomplishment and I really like it!
