MTTC #487 Theme is Ocean/Seaside starting 29 July 2022

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart is happy to share some easy ocean seaside themed cards using wood die-cuts from Dollar Tree!!! YES! I will be showing 1 card with a sailboat and another with a seahorse. 

MTTC's #487 theme has a bit of flex for craft artisans. It can be beachside or it can be underwater or on the water. Ocean or Sea-worthy. July 29-August 11, 2022 with start and end times on these dates at 12am CT/Chicago or 6am UK.

Design Inspiration Project #1 features a wood sailboat colored and glitter painted=

I like the boat being in its faux water setting (blue glitter decorative tape and the muted green with white flecks cardstock)!!!!

Some of the credits: (1) sailboat wood die-cut = Dollar Tree; (2) camping/canoe symbols print cardstock = Lake Life paper pad; (3) rust print, dots, muted green with tiny white flecks cardstocks and the floral die-cut ephemera along with the white card base = Simple Stories card kit; blue glitter decorative and the great adventure sticker are from my stash.


Design Team Commitment #2 featuring a wooden seahorse colored and glitter painted=

Some credits: (1) bold blue glossy cardstock panel on the left is recycled packaging; (2) cork 'ribbon' was bought at Dollar Tree as was the plain wood seahorse; (3) tropical palm leaf with flowers die-cut ephemera is from .....; and (4) postcard and island die-cut ephemera and the white cardstock base card are from Simple Stories' card kit "Wish You Were Here". 

These were fun to make!

  1. Wow Becca these cards are fantastic. I love the colour combo you've used, it's very original with those green, red and pink tones and not the typical one we can find in these kinds of cards. Great job. Hugs, María.

  2. What gorgeous wee wood cuts Becca, and you have made two wonderful cards using them

    1. Thanks, Maxine! I'm pleased with the results too!
