I am taking a little break from all the awesome holiday crafting to share with you a new Simon Hurley Release from Ranger. He came out with a fun beach theme with one stamp set and one background stamp. Check out the video I did and see why I am obsessed with them.
In the video I created several backgrounds for five more cards. Here are the complete cards!
I created “Surf’s Up!” on the video. I used Glossy Accents to make the glasses shine.
For the “Hang Loose” card I wanted to create a background that matched his red hair, so I opted for a sunset. To create it I used Distress Ink and splattered a little water on it. My original thought was not to have the surf board stand. I wanted him riding it, but it didn’t all fit on the card front. Once I stood it up an tucked it in the opening I loved it and wanted to repeat it in other cards.
“Waving Hello” was suppose to be a red head, but I had created the last one with that so I wanted something different. This one is probably my favorite dude out of all of them. One of my favorite things to create is hair and I adore his! Once again, the card could not really fit him on the surf board, so I had him hold it.
You Got This!
“You Got This” is a celebration of keeping it simple. I really wanted to just make a background with the background stamp on the card front. I appreciate how the girl really stands out on this.
Ride The Wave!
“Ride The Wave” was partially created in the video. Once again I wanted the background to be a sunset.
Seas The Day!
“Seas The Day” is the last card I created. To make him a little crazy in the water, I offset him on his board and gave him sunglasses.
These cards were a ton of fun to create! I love how they turned out and can’t wait to mail them after the holidays. You can get these stamp sets at the Ranger site and get 20% off with the code SIMON20.
Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!
