Today’s card is for Unity’s Bachelor Challenge #5.  The challenge was to use something on your card or project from around the house that you do not normally use on your paper crafting.  Well I chose some cute little seashells and used them with some of my new Unity Stamps!  Yup.. they arrived, and they are WONDERFUL!!

I used my Nestabilities to cut a 4-1/4″ square card into a shell shape to keep with the theme.  To get your card to sit straight after cutting, make sure that you cut it with two scallops across the bottom that are straight with the fold.



The shells are attached with little glue dots.  The boat and sails have been cut out and popped up with dimensionals.  Copics were used to color the boat and shell images.  A Copic Multiliner was used to draw fine lines between the stripes on the largest sail.


Aren’t these stamps the cutest!  They are from Unity’s Kit called “Beach Days & Sun Rays”.  Thank you, Unity, for sending me such a wonderful and fun assortment of stamps!

Happy Crafting (for sure!!)smileywaterwindsurferani.gif

  2. That is too cool. I love the colours you chose and the little seashells are perfect.
    Way back when I was a child I made little cards with seashells about that size and drew features around the shells to make little ducks, chickens, rabbits etc.

  3. Who knew seashells could look so good on a card?! I’ve never made a round scalloped card before, so TSM for the great tip! The little ship is amazing and I just LOVE all these feel-good colors!

  14. I LOVE this, Susan! (And Chloe gave it two thumbs up as well! lol) The shell-shaped card is darling, as is the coloring job on your ship and the shells. For a moment, I was wondering if it was the infamous Black Pearl, but I see you used a white pearl on the ship’s bow. ;P (I’m bettin’ you win somethin’ on this one!)
