Pineapple Paper Artists August Blog Hop - The Fleeting Days of Summer

Here I am again, working out of my box on the computer and really trying to get this bloghop mastered!!  Driving a school bus is much easier for me!!

Maybe you started here or came from Amy Raimy's http://amyraimy.blogspot.com/ page.  I hope I don't loose you, but if I do, I am probably lost also!!

I have made a 6 x 6 card for my project.  It is a waterfall card.  Something new to me and fun to make.  I used: stamp set C1594 - Treasured Friendship Seasons and Nature.  Dessert Sand Paper for the card base, the strip on front of card, and layered under the shells.  The pull strip is made out of Lagoon paper.  The backgroud is Seaside and the shells are stamped in Champagne Ink (#Z2174) on Colonial White Cardstock.  I have used the zip strip on the top of the center piece to hold the waterfall in place when it is pulled.  I also used 2 brads to hold the paper in place and a small piece of Washi Tape for the pull tab on the front of the card.  The brads used are a retired item from Close To My Heart.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit.  I sure had fun making this card.  Now hop on over to Martha's http://www.marthaporschet.blogspot.com/page and see some fabulous artwork there.


  1. I've never been brave enough to try one of these waterfall cards! Lovely, Harriet! :-)

  2. I love blues and browns together and I think seashells are beautiful no matter what color they are! You did a great job!

  3. Thank you Amy and Martha. It is fun Martha. It does take patience when you change the sizes to fit the stamps you are using.

  4. What a great way to show off all those beautiful shell stamps. Fun idea!
