Summer Scene Card feat Heffy Doodle Stamps

Hi everyone! Today I am back with a cheerful summer card I made for the Heffy Doodle challenge. 
This was such a fun one to make! I really enjoyed building this little scene and trying to creatively use non-summer stamps on a summer card. And I think the result is really fun!

To start off I stamped my images on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Spectrum Noir and Copic markers. The bear and the umbrella come from the Heffy Doodle Beary Big Heart stamp set and the little chicks are part of the Heffy Doodle Eggcellent News stamp set. For the ice cream I used one of the images in the Lawn Fawn Snow Cool stamp set, and the little beach toys come from the stamp set included in the Create a Smile Stamps Beach Party kit.

For the scene itself I used Distress Oxides and the My Favorite Things Ocean Waves Die-Namics. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo for the sand, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon for the sea, and Salty Ocean for the sky. The paper I used is Windsor and Newton Cotman Watercolor cardstock, and I also used the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches dies to cut my panels to 4 by 5.25”

I then used a die from the Craftin Desert Divas Flag Banner Dies to cut some vellum, over which I embossed my sentiment with white embossing powder. I used white embossing powder by Ranger, and the sentiment is part of the Sunny Studios Stamps Tropical Paradise set.
I added some color to my card base with Distress Oxide in Seedless Preserves and assembled everything.
For some finishing touches I added Crystal Stickles to the ice cream and Glossy Accents to the umbrella, to the egg shell (in the attempt to make it look like a floatie) and to the beach toys.

And that’s it for today! I really hope you liked this card and enjoyed this post! As I mentioned I will be entering this project in the #heffydoodlechallenge - it’s such a fun one and I have so many more ideas! I just hope I will have enough time to actually make the cards I have in mind! 
I will be traveling next week, so I might be a little more silent on the social media side of things (if you don’t follow me on other platforms I suggest you do, as I share even more cardmaking inspiration over there, especially on my Instagram and Facebook profiles).  Traveling aside, I will be back soon with lots of fun projects, and in the meantime I wish you all a great day!
