Welcome to the July 2020 Release Blog Hop for The Greeting Farm (TGF). This is my first blog hop for TGF and I could not be more excited to share a card I made with the new digi sets, Poolside and Poolside Peeps. All of the new July sets – stamps and digis – are available today, Wednesday, 7/15/2020 on The Greeting Farm website.
The More the Merrier!
The project I’m sharing begins with a pool scene on the front of this 5″ X 7″ landscape-oriented card. This set has all the cool accessories to make the pool fun. In this scene, the backyard pool has a dining set with a fun umbrella, a grill, lounge chairs, a beach ball, fun inflatables, garden hedge, steaks, cheese board, sunscreen, flip flops and more. I sized the grid/tile floor from the digi set into over-sized cement tile squares and added green grass growing between the blocks for a very contemporary pool terrace. This floor design reminds me of a mid-century modern home’s backyard in Palm Springs. 🙂
On the outside, you see the two peeps in the lounge chairs and two floating friends on fun inflatables in the water. When you open the card you see something bigger…
It’s a whole pond of inflatable floaters! Inside the card a larger pond is exposed, revealing five floaters and three beach balls. The swimming pool on the card front is cut out, allowing the two floaters and the center beach ball as well as the water to be a part of both scene settings.
I created a rocky terrain around the pond and added tall grasses on the top side. These elements were hand drawn and colored. Rocks aren’t perfect nor grass, so don’t be afraid to try create these elements on your own!
Flips flops are scattered around on the rocks as well as a beach ball in the grasses. These are both part of the sest. I added the phrase, “Living the Life” to the sky area to complete this card. This phrase is from the Beach Bums stamp set.
