Surf’s Up Inspiration Challenge

Standard

Surf’s Up Swim Trunks

I am so excited about today’s Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge IC348 ~ Selfridges & Co.! This British site was chosen to celebrate the London Olympics and our Challenge Hostess Stephanie invited me to make a sample for the challenge post, a first for me!  I chose these darling little boys surfing inspired swim trunks for my inspiration.  I loved the vintage, graphic feel and great colors choices.  I needed 2 birthday cards this month, a 10th birthday and a 50th birthday, and the vintage surf theme was perfect for both of them, so I made two cards!

Surf Inspired 10th Birthday

 

 

For my first card, I used the cut file 3 Retro Surfboards by Snapdragon Snippets and Beach Island by Samantha Walker from the Silhouette Online Store.  I made the title myself using the font Hobo Std.  I inked the edges of the paper cuts with the same color ink to add a little depth to them and used Creamy Caramel on Very Vanilla for the sand.

 

For my second card, I used the Palm Trees from Tropical Party, the Corvette from Classic Convertibles and the sentiment from Classic Pick Ups.    I made the surboard with the Stampin’ Up! Large Oval Punch that I trimmed down.  I used my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig to reposition the sentiment and cut out the Corvette and mounted it on Dimensionals.
