Hi folks, 

TE has a new kit out and it's perfect for creating cards for all occasions and even masculine cards! The Seaside Escape Cardmaking Kit retails for $60, is packaged in a zippered pouch with a custom sticker, and includes:

  • Triple Slim – At the Beach Layering Stencil & Clear Combo set
  • Triple Slim – At the Beach Accessories die collection
  • You’re a Treasure stamp set
  • The Insiders – Seaside Escape panels
Most kit items are not available to purchase individually.

Additional products available to purchase outside of the kit: You’re a Treasure die collection, Triple Slim – At the Beach Seashells Cutting Platedie, Mini Slim Layer Stacklets die collection, Additional Mini Slim Layer Stacklets die collection, The Insiders – Seaside Escape panels, and Seaside Escape envelope seals.

For my first card, I started off by ink blending a water and sand background by using the Cool Pool Stencil and Blue Raspberry and Cotton Candy dye inks. Checkout the latest tutorial on my IG to see how I made the faux water look. For the sand, I used Butter cream and Toffee dye inks. Then, I ink blended all the sea shells using a combination of Blue Raspberry, Confetti Cake, Lollipop, Plum Punch, Mango and Pumpkin dye inks. Later, I added additional details using copic markers and white gel pen and added a stamped sentiment to finish off the card :)

For my next card, I started off by ink blending a cloudy sky using Candy Corn and Lollipop dye inks (check out the tutorial on my IG page for creating a cloudy background!). Then, I ink blended the stencil using Blue Raspberry, Gumball and Cotton Candy dye inks. For the sail boat, I used Plum Punch, Peaches and Cream and Lavendar dye inks. Fuzzy cut the scene and then add additional details using the clear stamps and finish it off with a sentiment! 

My final card is one of my favorites! I started off by ink blending the scene using Blue Raspberry, Gumball and Blueberry for the water. For the Light house and boat, I used Watermelon, Mango and Candy Corn dye inks. Then, I inkblended the background using Eggplant, Plum Punch and Lollipop dye inks. Fuzzy cut the scene and added some die cut clouds and stamped some birds to finish off the card!

That's it folks! Hope this release inspires you :)

  1. You are an astonishing colorist. These are so beautiful they make me want to cry. I guess I'm going to have to get fuzzy (and believe me I hate it, but I'm going to do it)...
