By the Bay

As the weather warms up and spring break approaches I always think about the days along the lake front growing up. It really doesn’t matter what time of year, I just love to hear the waves crashing along the shore so when I saw the By the Bay Suite Collection (160450) it called to me.

This Suite is filled with wonderful colors and images and you’re going to love the little Flat Adhesive Backed Pearls (160449) which area simply wonderful for that die that opens and closes.

This first card uses the little shell as the focal point of this card with movement. It’s been cut using the Pearlescent Specialty Paper (154291) and the die both cuts and embosses the shell. Texture has also been added behind the shell with the torn paper edge technique and sand stamped images.

And this next card also uses shell images, this time the focus is on highlighting the gold foil found in the By the Bay 6×6 Designer Series Paper (160434).

Not only one of the shells has been cut using the Gold Foil Sheets (132622) but also the mat for the scene. The Cascading Ruffles 3D Embossing Folder (159169) adds the feel of the water and the Label Me Fancy Punch (151297) add a quick and simple way to add the sentiment.

And this last card uses a fun little stitched edge to the circles found in the Stylish Shapes Dies (159183) to cut out and highlight the little sand pipers. The colors on this card give me such a peaceful feel when I look at it. How about you?

The color combination of Crumb Cake, Pool Party, and Balmy Blue are clean and make simple this card makes a soft and sweet Thank You card to send someone.

And just to share – I thought I’d share a picture that I took when I went back for my Class Reunion last September from my walk along Lake Michigan. A little different shore line that I used to hang out at as a teenager since its a bit farther north of Milwaukee, but this park and views were quite lovely all the same.
