Over the weekend, I spend sometime in my studio playing with new goodies. Boy, did it feel good! I decided to check out some online challenges and came across this one over at Global Design Project. 

This weeks challenge was to CASE A DESIGNER and the designer was Brian King. Brian is an amazing stamper. He loves clean and simple with layers! Plus he has an eye for colour and each project represents his creative style! 

CASING THE DESIGNER, you have the choice to CASE the layout, the stamp set, the images, the colours or anything you like from the design. 

I chose to go with the layout. I really like how clean and simple it was. For my stamp set focus, I chose to play with the new Lilypad Lake Bundle. This bundle is perfect for birthdays, thinking of you, congrats and any other celebration you need a project for. 

I used the colour combination of Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade. These colour just POP and scream summer fun to me! I had vision of the sailboats off in the distance as you sat on the beach relaxing and chilling. 


I want to create a beach scene so I stamped the sun image in Memento Ink and then using a sponge dauber I colour in the middle of the sun. I actually went outside the Sun so it looked sun rays around the sun. Then I add the birds from the Hightide stamp set as you can’t be at the beach without see tons of birds flying in the air!

My water was stamped with Night of Navy ink and I coloured the boats with Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight markers. The best part about the boats is there is a matching framelits, so all you have to do is stamp and cut out with a Big Shot machine and the Lakeside framelits.
