Creation Station Blog Hop - Inspired By Water!

Welcome to Just Julie B Stampin' and welcome to the Creation Blog Hop for the month of June! This month we are Inspired By Water!! So my take on this was some coastal inspiration. We have a second home on the coast and there is always something awesome to see that will inspire my creativity! On a recent walk, we saw this beautiful Blue Heron enjoying the view. The photo makes it look like he was far away, but he really was pretty close to us!

Anyhow, I couldn't wait to create a card with the new Heron Habitat Bundle after seeing him! I did my best to recreate the colors of the real-life one into my card. And I added lots of fresh White Cardstock layers to frame it!

I stamped the Heron in Gray Granite ink and then I added touches of Light Navy Blends onto his head and part of his wing. Then I used Light Gray Granite to blend out a little of the navy. I added some Pumpkin Pie Blending on his beak and legs too. I did add a little bit of green, Mint Macaron and Soft Succulent, for the grass pieces. Seems it just needed some green, not just all the dried brownish grass in real life! ;)


I added a few other fun touches. I love these new Heart Pearls! The milky white ones were subtle, and I feel like they accentuated the white sponged clouds on the dry embossed background.

And the card base was a 4" x 11" that was scored at 2" and 7 1/2" to create a little inside pocket - just for something different to hold a gift card!

I hope you enjoyed your stop here today! And I hope you keep on hopping because up next is the fabulous Elizabeth Price! I can't wait to see what she has created...

See ya soon,
