Easy Cloud Background & Beach Scene

Easy Cloud Background & Beach Scene

Hi everybody! I’m Rebecca with Waffle Flower Crafts and I’m super excited to be here on the Simon Says Stamp blog today sharing a card video featuring some new stamps and dies from Waffle Flower’s July Release. In this video, I am sharing a quick and easy way to create a fabulous puffy cloud background, perfect for a fun beach scene.

The Cloudscape Panel Die cuts a 5.5 x 4.25 frame and cuts out cloud layers on the inside. You could cut this out of white and blue cardstock and alternate the colors to create a cloudy sky. I decided to cut out Strathmore Bristol Smooth White Cardstock and ink blend with Distress Oxide ink on the edges of the cloud pieces.

When you put all the pieces back together like a puzzle you end up with a really pretty sky background that was SO fast to create. I like covering the bottom piece of the die cut with blue ink to mimic water.

Next, I stamped, colored and die cut all the images from the Fun in the Sun Combo (also from the July release). These little mice and beach accessories are so fun to move around and it’s easy to combine a bunch of them to create a cute scene.

Alternate dimensional adhesive and tape runner so that some of the characters appear closer or further away. Add your sentiment and you’re done! Using the Cloudscape Panel Die is the easiest way I’ve found to create that awesome puffy cloud background and I will be using it for MANY of my card scenes in the future!

Thank you so much for stopping by! -Rebecca
