Introducing A Day at the Beach

Candice's headshot Candice Aguilar is the designer of the set which I am introducing you to today, entitled A Day at the Beach.  It is just full of images that remind you of lazy summer days and warm weather fun in the sun!  Perfect to use on invitations for all those wonderful summer get togethers, seasonal just because cards for friends near and far, and of course you can't forget all of those summer birthdays!  There are several sentiment choices too in this $24 set making it so worthwhile.

Of course, I couldn't resist whipping up a few projects myself with A Day at the Beach and I though I would share a few them with you today!  First is this cute set of flip flop cards.  I love it when I am able to come up with such a simple design that is easy to recreate, yet maintains some visual interest to keep them from being boring! 

Coloring flip flops

There are several different ways to "build your own" flip flops with the different elements that Candice included in A Day at the Beach.  There are solid soles (one plain and one with polka dots) for those who do not like to color.  There is also an outline (used here with fresh snow ink) that you can use for coloring or paper piecing.  I colored mine using the darker shades from our New Leaf Copic Trio.  I love how vibrant the color turned out on the classic kraft cardstock.

Completed flip flop closeup

The "thongs" portion of the flip flops is a separate stamp, which I added here with fresh snow ink.  A few little rhinestones were the perfect accent for these classic summer footwear favorites!  The sentiment, one of the MANY wonderful summer themed sentiments, was stamped in black detail ink.  I used a white Gel Pen (Uniball) to draw the frame around the focal points.

The finished result is a clean & simple card with a bit of color pop.

I liked the way the green turned out so much, I decided to also try it in pink!  EVERYTHING looks good in pink, don't you think?  :)  I used the two lightest shades of the Raspberry Fizz Copic Trio for this.  The vibrancy really pops from the page!

Drink Trio card

I liked the white ink & Copics look so much, I decided to execute it
with these drink images.  There are two different glasses in this set. 
For those of you who do not like to color, there are solid stamps for
you to *fill* the glasses with the beverage color of your choice!  Lots
of versatility for everyone!

Colored drinks

I colored the drinks in with the New Leaf, Raspberry Fizz and Ocean Tides Copic Trios.  Be sure to do your shading on the same side for all three glasses to make it look more realistic.

To make things even more fun, there are little accessories to go with the glasses!  A lime wedge, ice cubes & straw and of course, an umbrella.  I added them to my glasses using fresh snow ink. I was really happy with how will this technique worked for these particular images.  Notice the sentiments I have shown you so far?  Don't you just LOVE the font combo?!?!  I think it is fresh, fun and fabulous!!!

Pool Party Invite  

(click photo for larger view)

My 30th birthday is coming soon and seeing as how I hardly ever do much to celebrate the monumental day. I decided to throw a big girls weekend at my house this summer in honor of the occasion!  We'll hang out in the pool, grill-out, become gossip girls and lots more!  What better way to officially announce the weekend to my guests than with a pretty invitation!

Bikini closeup

This adorable bikini image is in two parts so you can use them separately or together.  It also makes it easy to ink each piece in a different color if you like!  I heat embossed mine with White Filigree embossing powder onto Lemon Tart cardstock.  I stitched a tiny lemon tart vintage button to the center of the top to give it a bit of textural detail.

Ribbon closeup

I used Nestabilities Label 1 die to cut the white mat.  The edge of it was pierced and stitched with lemon embroidery floss.  A bit of lemon tart grosgrain ribbon was looped and trimmed and snugly adhered behind the bikini focal point.  As one last detail, the background of the card was stamped with Polka Dot Basics using fresh snow ink.  I think my guests will enjoy these when they receive them!

Eternal Summer card

(click photo for larger view)

I decided to have fun and build a beach scene using a few of the other elements from A Day at the Beach.

Beach scene closeup  

The "sand" in created with kraft cardstock and stamped with Background Basics: Text Style using Dark Chocolate ink.  The starfish is heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The umbrella is stamped with pure poppy, trimmed and placed right above the umbrella pole, which is a separate image as well, making it easy to add it to your project first using an alternate color.  The background is Polka Dot Basics, using Versamark.  I think the foam tape used under the umbrella top and starfish, really make the project!

So there you have it!  A few fun things you can begin experimenting with when you receive your own copy of Day at the Beach.  Which technique/type of project do you think you will try out first?  Just for sharing your thoughts

After all that talk of summer it got to me thinking about what the first signs of summer are in my own home, and a few things came to mind…

Front porch

…hanging baskets on the front porch, spilling over with blooms.  This year I have petunias.


…the appearance of fresh garden veggies in my kitchen again.  Somehow they make the food more meaningful, not to mention they taste better!


…and of course, eating the meals made with the fresh garden veggies out on the screen porch once again.  Watching the show put on by our local friendly lightning bugs, accompanied by a custom soundtrack composed of the sweet chirping of crickets.  A little candlelight is always nice as well.

Owen at baseball

…and don't forget about the ol' American tradition of Little League games on Saturday afternoons.  This picture reminds me of just how fast Owen is growing up.

What are your first signs of summer?


Michelle Wooderson had fun with A Day at the Beach too!  Be sure to stop by her blog to see what she's been up to!

    Just love the classic kraft cardstock/copic/white ink project – definitely something I’ll try. Here in the UK its Spring but the first sign of summer has arrived this week: the swifts are back from their winter haunts in Africa and are racing and screaming in the sky overhead. Nothing says summer more to me. Love it!

  • 42
    Josiane says:

    Love how well the copic-colored images pop on the kraft cards. Though it’s so cool that there are solid/pattern stamps for those of us who don’t color. Love the accessories stamps – that’s so thoughtful!

    This set looks awesome – there isn’t one image that I wouldn’t use, which is rare in a set. I also love how bright the copic colours come out – even on kraft cardstock. Amazing! I still haven’t bought into the copic craze, but those thongs are just too cute too pass up I might just have to!

  • 46

    This summer set is awesome. I love how the pieces are separate so you can build your own.

  • 47

    I am with you on the garden-fresh produce, Nichole…and garage sales! Ugh – we live in a subdivision and the traffic picks up on the weekends with all the people coming in for garage sales. Time for use to get out and enjoy when they all come in. Cute cute set!

    What a cute set! Can’t wait to get my hands on it:) And for me, one of the first signs of summer is when my favorite professional baseball team reports to Clearwater, Florida for the beginning of pre-season. There’s nothing quite so exciting as turning on the evening news to hear that pitchers and catchers reported for duty!!!

    Love the stamp set, but right now the photos are what gets my attention. My heat is on – it’s in the 30’s out. Your hanging baskets and fresh veggies show that there is hope. The temperature is supposed to go up by noon, so I’ll put my seedling trays on the deck and wait patiently.

    Vania N. Bell says:

    The beach is my favorite place of all. Every summer my college roomate and I with our families spend time by the sea to bond and enjoy many precious moments. She and I have believed that since we have gone to the beach every summer since college that “heaven is a little closer with every moment spent by the sea”. Ther is no better place to reaalize how small you are and how big that ocean is. It is truly the best.

    Looking so forward to the release.

    Love the look of this set. I’ve just finished a flip flop and bikini quilt and think your cards are so cute. Love your photos too.

  • 432
    Michelle A. says:

    This set looks like so much fun!! I cant wait to try out the technique of layering the stamps images to create the drinks – ice cubes, limes, etc. Also want to create a beach scene like you did.

  • 441
    lisa says:

    I had to grin when I saw your “Itsy bitsy teeny weenie yellow polka dot bikini.”
    My dad would sing that song all summer long when we were kids. (So I quess that was one our signs of summer when dad would start singing about a bikini.)
    I really love the drinks you did though.
    (Drinks all around!) I’d have to get some copics and try that.

  • 442

    how adorable — I just LOVE your flip flop cards…too perfect! Well, really, who’s kidding who, I love them all — but why do I have β™ͺβ™ͺ”She wore an Itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini”β™ͺβ™ͺ in my head?? πŸ˜‰ What a great FUN set! My first signs of Summer (though we haven’t seen much of Spring yet!) is the start of parade season (I’m in a fife and drum corps) and musters, hearing the neighborhood children outside playing, laughing…aaaahhhhhh, Summer. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the opportunity!!

    Can’t wait to see this set in person, I love it! Summer is blooming with beautiful flowers at entrances to grocery stores everywhere. Living in San Diego most of my life, I didn’t appreciate summer until I moved to the Midwest.

  • 450

    Wow! So many comments — folks must love summer ;^)*
    Believe it or not, I don’t often stamp in white — I want to try to do that more — your post inspired me!

  • 458
    Linda w says:

    Wonderful cards and ideas Nichole. We are still into spring here so not much summer yet. It is lakefly season right now. These bugs are so messy. Next should be the blooming of the cottonwood trees and seeing all of my screens filled with their “cotton” seeds. Here in Wisconsin we really only have 2 seasons, winter and road construction. Needless to say stamping is a year’round season.

    thanks much

    Loving the stamp set. Especially the ability to colour things in. The stamp set has me thinking of summer..unfortunatley our weather hasn’t been so pleasent here..lots of rain, and still no leaves on trees…guess I’ll just have to get the stamp set to tied me over until our warm weather finally gets

    Oh Nichole! I love summers here in Maine and I know you know what I mean!! The first sign of the sailboats on the ocean, opening up my swimming pool, the warmer days, gardens, the green vegetation and the corner ice cream store opening. I love it all!!! This set looks just perfect and VERY fun!!!

  • 471
    Beverley says:

    I like how you created the two step stamping with this set – beautiful!

  • 472
    Shay says:

    I especially love your drink and beach cards. I really want to try copic markers with these images! And I love the use of the text background for the sand…very graphic and modern. I can see that these images would be fun with paper piecing as well.

    This looks like one of the most classy summer sets I have seen and yet still fun and flirty. I love the drinks and embellishments that could work for all sorts of invitations or girlfriend cards. The flip flops are great as well as the beach umbrellas…all perfect for friends who love the summer and beach.

  • 473
    Marla says:

    This set is just to dog gone cute! I love the cocktails. We always joke around at work that it looks like a “rita” night these would be real cute to send out some “rita” invites.

  • 485
    Tish says:

    This is an adorable stamp set! I like how you can use the pieces separately to “build” your image. I can see using them for coloring in as you have done or paper piecing. Love the versatility of them. I love the simple design of your cards, yet they are unique and interesting. I can see me using this set to send birthday cards (we have ALOT of summer birthdays!), a blank note card set to my SIL who is a summer-loving person like no other, and I’m sure she’d love it if I made her invites for her annual pool party!! (She’s not a stamper herself, so even my meager abilities easily impress her, LOL!)

    Thanks for the chance to win a set!

  • 486

    JanetS says:

    I love the simple, but striking, flip flop cards. Candice always comes up with some interesting details in her set designs. Summer at my house is here when the storm windows come out of the french doors and the screens are in, the doors are open letting the fresh air flow thru the house. I love that smell.

  • 489

  • 491
    Becky says:

  • 500

    My first sign of summer is getting out cushions for the patio chairs. We love to sit out back and look at the yard. Or we watch the kids if they are out back, but we love it when they are not there, too.

  • 501
    Carol B says:

    What a great set! So fun to use for all those summer parties rather than the typical bar-b-que or apron images for the invitations!

    This set just screams “do something with sand!” so I can’t wait to get my hands on it…a shaker card perhaps! Or maybe just glue some sand right onto the card front. Who knows! I think the options are endless with this one. Love it!

    sarita says:

    first signs of summer? well i live in the southern california desert so one of the first signs of summer for us is turning on our AC!!!! I also realized last night that it was 7:30 and still light outside! i can see how this stamp set could really be used all year round – if you have friends who are “snow birds” you could stamp the flip flops and bikini in color on a white (snow)background!!!
    thank you for this wonderful stamp company and for the chance to win a stamp set!

  • 513

    quilter says:

    There’s the Background Basics used as Sand. I am enjoying finding it used so many places. I’m not much of a beach girl, except love walking in the water as it laps up on the beach. That is so stress relieving. All the projects make it look very inviting.

  • 530

  • 548

    I think the first technique I will try is stamping the image in white ink, then coloring in with markers. The question is, which image to try first? Will it be the adorable flip flops, or the fruity drinks? Those ice cubes look awful tempting…and the white gel pen frame is something I can do tonight! Thanks for sharing, Nichole!

  • 549
    Janelle says:

    I didn’t think that I would need this set until I started reading the sentiments. I am particularly taken by “Take time to Relax” and the quote about endless summer. And the fonts chosen are perfect. Of course, the flip flops are incredibly cute, too! Thanks for the chance to win!
