Inner Tube Birdbrain Slider Card

OK...I'm back for quite a while now.  The beach was wonderful! YES...the beach is my "Happy Place".

I love Faith's From the Heart Stamp Inner Tube Birdbrain, so I bought it and ran all the way into my craft room to make a card.  Well, you know me, I made 4.  This card is SO ME!!! I was inspired by Donna's Indiana Inking card.

I'm joining From the Heart Stamp Challenge #160.  You can use the sketch and/or use blue and water.  To get the effect I wanted, I chose the blue and water. Cut It Up is also having an awesome challenge: Summertime Memories...well, you know that's ALL ME!

A2, sun punch, LAwn Fawn Hillside Border dies, cut image using Cameo, pop-ups for dimension, wink of Stella on drink and eyelids, copics for color
Sketch or Twist to follow at FTHS

Other Challenges:


  1. You always make the best birdbrain cards! Love that you made this into a slider card too. I am working on a slider card right now...slowly as I get time! I am heading to the beach this weekend for a nice little vacation, but I think I will leave my inner tube at home as I am birdbrained enough already!

  2. Oh, yes, Cely, I can just see you floating on that inner tube! Great card and I adore the way you did the sand and sea foam on the edge of the incoming wave. Fab design techniques!

  3. This is fabulous, Cely ! I like your summery beachy scene and you did a perfect job with our tWiSt this week @ From the Heart Stamps.
    Thanks for joining us and i hope to see you back again soon !!!
