Keeping It Slim with Sand & Sea

I love the beach! When my toes are in the sand, I’m in my happy place! I enjoy combing the shore for shells and sea glass. Just smelling the salt air and listening to the waves relaxes me like nothing else. I am dreaming of a beach vacation! Next week is my two weeks “post vaccine” and after a year of staying home I am ready for some sand & sea! My husband and I are trying to decide on a new beach destination (in the USA) to visit. What’s your favorite beach vacation? I’d love for you to leave a comment below and help us decide.

Today I’ve combined my love for the sand & sea with a fun slimline card. (*The slimline card fits in a business size envelope and doesn’t cost any extra to mail!)
Stampin' Up! Sand & Sea slimline card idea for any occasion - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I used products from the Sand & Sea Collection to create my card.
Stampin' Up! Sand & Sea Suite Collection - for inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The Sand & Sea Suite Collection includes:
* Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set (10% off)
* Seaside Seashell Dies (10% off)
* Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper
* Pearlescent Specialty Paper
* Shimmering Shells Stickers
* Seashells 3D Embossing Folder
* Opal Rounds

This month I am featuring the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle (from the Sand & Sea Suite) in my exclusive tutorials (free with a $50 purchase). I love this bundle!!!

The stamp set has great and versatile sentiments as well as beach images. The dies are awesome on their own and coordinate with the Seashells 3D Embossing folder. You can make an incredible background with this embossing folder or use the large die to cut the embossed shells like I did. I used the pearlescent paper and love the look! (You could sponge color on the embossed shells if you want.) Look at the texture you get from this embossing folder!

Here’s a close up of the embossing on my card.

I like to bring a little of the beach home with me!
My sand collection from my travels. Visit www.juststampin.com for inspiration and Stampin' Up! supplies.I have a sand collection from all the different beaches I’ve visited. (Oh the stories I could tell about some of this sand! FYI…trying to go through customs with sand in a plastic bag is not always easy!  LOL) I love the different colors and textures. It’s amazing how different the sand is from beach to beach. I have sand from as far north as Prince Edward Island and as far south as Cancun, Mexico. I also have sand from as far west as Hawaii and as far east as Normandy, France. I spend a lot of time on the east coast and have collected sand from Maine to Florida. My favorite is the pink sand from Bermuda! This is such a fun collection and brings a smile to my face.  It’s inexpensive and easy to document my travels with some Avery labels on jars. I wonder where my next sand will be from???? Help me decide! Leave a comment below suggesting a great beach getaway!

Do you like creating slimline cards? Here’s some I’ve shared previously. This size card is great for stamping images, showcasing embossing, or layering Designer Series Paper. It’s also a great size for sending a handwritten note as there’s plenty of space to write inside. *Click on the image to view the original post.

Happy Birthday Andrew!

Today is my son’s birthday. He took on a new business adventure this year and I couldn’t be more proud of him and all he has accomplished! I had to pull out some retired Designer Series Paper for the projects and card I made for him.
Stampin' Up! Sweet Ice Cream Country ClubGolf birthday card and gift ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
He started a virtual golf business which opened mid January. I decided to go with a golf theme for his birthday. The retired Country Club DSP was perfect for his card.

I saw a sketch for this mini slimline card and knew it would make a great masculine card. Here’s the card details:

Card Base: 6 1/4 x 6 1/2 scored at 3 1/4
Layer 1: 3 x 6
DSP Layer: 2 7/8 x 5 7/8 and 1 1/2 x 3 1/4 layered on 1 5/8 x 3 3/8 cardstock
Banner: 3 1/2 x 1 1/4

I also made him a business card holder for his desk.

I don’t have one of his new business cards but he sent me a picture. (You know me, I wanted to make sure everything color coordinated.)

*I made my own business card holder several years ago (which I still use today). You can view the tutorial to make it HERE.

My last project is a treat holder I made using the Love You Always Treat Boxes. I love these boxes! They are so easy for a quick gift! There’s a hidden surprise inside this one.

I found these golf ball chocolates at our local candy store. Hidden under the candy is his birthday check. I also sent him a fun golf bag pen holder I ordered online for his new office.

I hope you liked today’s projects. As always, you can adapt these ideas to your needs by simply changing the DSP, etc. If you find yourself in Lincoln, Rhode Island, stop in and say hi to my son Andrew and enjoy some indoor virtual golf.

Visit X Golf in Lincoln, RI for a fun virtual golf experience!

I didn’t want to change a thing as I loved everything about the sample card, especially the fun colors and all the little cards in the mail slot. I even tried out my new Stampin’ Up! Blending Brushes and let me say…LOVE THEM!!! (They’re softer than my makeup brushes!!!) The square on the box with the snail is actually Basic White that I blended with Pool Party and Bermuda Bay using my blending brushes.
Stampin' Up! Blending Brushes - for tips, techniques, inspiration and more visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

  • DSP Layer (Snail Mail): 3 3/4 x 8 1/4, fussy cut snail from DSP
  • Mailbox (Bermuda Bay): 3 1/4 x 6 – Cut with the Stitched Rectangle to make the legs. Punch the top with the Corner Rounder.
  • Envelopes: Cut 5 with die – 1 Real Red, 1 Bermuda Bay, 1 Pool Party, 2 Blushing Bride. Use exacto knife to cut slit in mailbox to stuff envelopes.
