At the Spring Retreat at the Beach, we did three different classes, just like every year. One of the classes this year was the Regatta Hinged Display Tray. This tray is so fun to do, I’ve done a number of them (like here and here)! They are fun to make, fun to look at, and fun to give, too!
For this tray, we used the Regatta paper pack, Beach Days Stamp set, The My Anchor Thin Cuts, Archival Black ink, Cranberry Ink, White Daisy ink, Clear embossing powder, the Shin Han Carmine marker, and some White Daisy cardstock.
Instead of pulling out some red cardstock, we cut the hearts out of the white daisy cardstock, and colored them with the Carmine ShinHan marker. They turned out GREAT! Stamped the sentiment directly on the B&T paper, and cut the anchor with the thin cut. We stamped them first and then cut them, however, they can be cut first and then stamped. That is the great thing about the clear stamps!!
Now, on my sample, here, I used white daisy ink and clear embossing powder. However, when I had the ladies do theirs, they used white daisy ink and white embossing powder. It made it pop that much more! This stamp was also done directly on the B&T paper.
This last square was so much fun! As you can see with the shadows, there are a few different levels of the layers! The lighthouse was popped on some foam tape, my boat was put on a scrap of cardstock to hold it up just behind the waves. The waves were die cut and then folded, so that they would wrap into the box and sit on the outside edge of the little box they are in. There is also a small piece of sapphire cardstock on the bottom of the box, to keep with the blue for the waves.
I love how this little box turned out, and heard raves from each of the ladies, as well! Would you be interested in a box like this? Contact me and I will show you how!
