Beach Huts

I made this card for my best friend who has a findness for beach huts - in  fact when I saw this Michael Powell stamp a couple of months ago I bought it with her in mind.


The stepper effect was a bit of a challenge (as ever) so after a couple of attempts I decided to go with the Debbi Moore school of card making - I was watching her the other day and she said   'I never measure' . So abandoning the wonky ones I just did it by eye - and voila it worked. Not sure it would help with the boxmaking though.

Backing paper is Crafty Individuals, colouring - promarkers.

Bye for now, Cindy

Hi Cindy, I had a bit of a giggle over the 'no measure' route you took - mine always turn out wonky too. This one is beautiful, I have got loads of use from my MP beach huts too but not like this - love how you have arranged them all, the gorgeous colours and the lovely centrepiece. A x

PS - have you seen his Christmas stamps yet, they are wonderful too and inspired me to start making mine.

Brilliant card Cindy. Lovely layout and colours. I too usually use the 'No measure' method when making steppers, purely because they always work better that way for me too. LOL. I haven't got the beach huts stamps but do have the lighthouse and harbour ones. You have done a fanastic job with them. Really feel I must get the beach huts now. Angy xx
