Neat & Tangled June Release Week Day 2

Are you ready for summer? Cause we’re bringing some sunshine your way today! We’re on the second day of the Neat & Tangled June Release Week and you’re going to just LOVE today’s feature set!

Elena does it again and brings out an incredibly cute new set called Beach Day. I can’t imagine a cuter set! I stamped and colored my beach bums with copic markers. Summer calls from bright colors so I decided to work with bold colors. Being a Southern Californian gal, I’m familiar with the heat very well so I thought it would be fun to create some heat waves with our a new stencil, using red, orange, and yellow dye inks.

I thought it would be a fun idea to stamp my sentiment partially onto my elevated sun, by stamping “sunshine” once onto my sun and once directly onto my background. I aligned it and adhered it with foam tape. My characters are also adhered with foam tape.

The bottom sand was cut out of kraft cardstock, and the dots are actually a dotted stamp from the set, so I randomly stamped them across the ground to add texture to the sand. I just can’t get over how cute the characters are on this set. I can’t wait to find some time to color up the rest!

    First adorable cards! And to answer the question about favorite vacation spot I have only been on one vacation since I was a kid so I have to say Disney world! But if I could pick a place to go would be some place warm and by the ocean because I have never seen it.
