Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop-Beach Clothes Line

TE blast blog hop

So glad you hopped on by to my project! The theme for the blog hop this month was Sending You Sunshine and boy, are we getting summer weather here in Southern Ontario! With the humidity, it is supposed to be 47 C later this week. YIKES!

I used Hangin’ Out Beach and Hangin’ Out for my card today. I prefer to use the boxer shorts from the latter for guys swim trunks because they have no pattern making it easier to layer over patterned paper. Everything was stamped on patterned paper except the tree top and coconuts. I used plain cardstock for them. Then I used Copics for shading to make them look more 3-D.

The sand and shells are by Mudd Puddles and if you Google them, I’m sure you can find them online. They make the best sand and shells that come in little pots in glue so they are ready to use. One small note: I bought mine a year ago and they were starting to dry out! So I added some water and shook them (gently with the shells) to reactivate the glue. Definitely check yours out if you have some and add water if needed.

If you enjoyed my project, I hope you will subscribe. Both RSS and email options are on my sidebar! Thanks! I hope you have fun visiting the other blogs on the hop!

Enjoy, Rebecca

  1. This is a very creative card. I love how you took two different elements (the beach and a clothes line) and managed to look cohesive. It is very pretty. You did a great job.


  2. This is AMAZING Rebecca!!!! The sand and shells are the icing on the cake (or cupcake). Sooo love your beach scene. I feel like I'm really there!
