small moments…

Sand and water make a beach for me.
The base card is white card stock.
On more white card stock I stamped the image from Newton’s Nook Designs “Newton’s Summer” with MFT extreme black ink and colored it with Copic markers.
This I die cut with one of the dies from MFT Die-namics “Stitched Square STAX” and trimmed out the sand and sandcastle.
I die cut another piece of white card stock with the same die and taped it on my stenciling mat and stenciled it using Newton’s Nook Designs “Waves & Splashes Stencil” with Distress ink salvaged patina.
These I glued to the card front.
To finish I stamped the sentiment from Newton’s Nook Designs “Autumn Mice” with the MFT ink.


  1. What a stunning card Arlene - love it! The wave background is wonderful behind the wee sand castle
    Stay safe

  2. We have a family story about the 'sandcastle of legend' and your card, with it's turreted castle and beautiful wavy background so reminds me of this. Fabulous!

  3. What a wonderful "beachy" card and the use of the waves for background is very clever. Thank you for sharing your beautiful card with us at Addicted to CAS! xoxo Fran

  4. Love this Arlene! Gorgeous design!
