Life's a Beach!

May you always have a shell in your pocket and sand in your shoes



Welcome to the Creations by AR Design Team June Blog Hop! This month the Creations by AR Team members are sharing creations made with the new Sandy Beach Bucket Template and the  Beach Bucket Card Template. Continue reading below to see how you can win one of these new templates!

I used the Silhouette Cameo to cut the template pieces, and stamped the panels with stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs.

I just love these fabulous summer templates, the Sandy Beach Bucket Template makes a wonderful treat or trinket holder, it would also be cute to use as a place setting for a Summer Beach Party Dinner, or shrunk down for a Christmas Ornament.

Here's two views of my Sandy Beach Bucket



I stamped the Hammock from Our Daily Bread Designs Happy Retirement stamp set in Black Archival on the Bucket, then colored the image using STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils.  The bucket trim was stamped in Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink using the Fishing Net Background.  I added a stamped tag using a sentiment from the Count the Waves stamp set, die cutting the tag using the ODBD Custom Recipe Card and Tag Die.  To fill in the background, I sponged Blue ink over a Scallop to create clouds. To embellish I added some Mudd Puddles Sand and Sea Glass.
