Coming Home beach huts

Coming Home Stampin Up

Fancy a bit of respite from relentless Christmas projects? A week or so ago, I challenged my regular customers to create a project inspired by a place they love.

I was making this card anyway and am all for pinning the challenge to the card, rather than the other way round, so decided this was inspired by Findhorn Beach in Scotland.  Here’s a pic I took on a very blustery day there in 2017.

The ‘beach huts’ on my project are actually little houses stamped with the Coming Home stamp set and coloured in using Stampin’ Blends. Pool Party, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral, in case you were wondering. The sand is a mix of Ivory and Daffodil Delight.

I created the sea by tearing some Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper. I only have scraps of this left after using it for lots of classes this summer, so couldn’t resist adding the little fussy-cut turtle. I don't think they get turtles off Findhorn but they are occasional visitors to Scottish waters, so that’s good enough for me.

Get perfectly placed houses by stamping with the Stamparatus. The stamps are designed to work like this. Using the top hinge, stamp one house, move the plate to the right one slot then repeat. Keep going until you have as many houses as you need.
