Oldie but a Goodie

Hi everyone! Time for a new challenge over at Inkspirational where Nonni would like you to look through your stash and find one of the first stamps you started stamping with to create something.

I have destashed a LOT of my stamps. When I started crafting, I was using mainly Stampin' Up products among others. When I started Happy Little Stampers, I started selling off a lot of my stamps. I did keep quite a few sets, though. So, my stamp set isn't one of the original ones that I have used but it is one of the ones that I have had in my collection the longest.

This is a stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Life is Good. I used my MISTI to stamp all my images onto watercolour paper. I embossed them with black powder. They were all coloured with my Zig Watercolour Markers and die cut out with their coordinating dies.

The sentiment is from HLS Mix Mash.

I added some wink of stella to the sand castle and bucket. I hope you can see it in the photo below.

This was really fun to make and was certainly a blast from the past :)

I can't wait to see your blast from the past so don't forget to play along over the next two weeks :)

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Crafty Gals Corner - Punches and/or Dies
Crafty Cardmakers - Under the sea or at the beach
Make My Monday - Lazy days of summer

Ta Ta for now.

  3. fab scene Kylie, wish I was there now! Your colouring is so good and the touch of sparkle we love naturally!

  4. What a fabulous summer design. Actually, seeing this great card on the scheduled post influenced me to make a bid on this set on Ebay a few days ago. I didn't win- probably just as well, as I don't think I could make a card as good as this.

  5. Sweet and very fun card. Awesome colouring.
    Hugs, BożenA
