Hi friends.  Jennifer Snyder here today to share some cards with a warm beach theme  – sunshine in a card.  Creative Embellishments has some fabulous shells and beach related chipboard designs to help make summer card creating super easy.
Here are the chipboard pieces I will feature today on the cards:

My chipboard treatments are minimal – meaning I kept things easy and didn’t spend too much time altering the chipboard.  I dabbed the chipboard with white acrylic paint, making sure to leave some of the natural chipboard color showing.This is my first card.   I decided to shake off the winter blues and shake up summer fun.

Creating the card is as much fun as filling the card.
My shaker card is filled with some cheery shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More.  I picked Tropical Sparkletz as the perfect mix.

Once filled, I continued to embellish with Starfish and Sand Dollars and chipboard Sea Shells.
The papers used on this collection are from Ciao Bella – Summer Tales collection.

 

 

 

The second card features some of my favorite sun loving birds – the flamingo.
I recently saw some flamingos in person and was captivated by their grace.
The papers used on this card are a combination of  Ciao Bella, Summer Tales and Alexandra Renke.

You’ll notice the Starfish and Sand Dollars chipboard is also treated the same as in the first card.  I dabbed lightly with acrylic leaving a weather worn effect.

Thanks for stopping here today.   Happy summer crafting.
