Just Surfing and Colour Q Challenge #31

When I saw these colors they just screamed SUMMER to me! hehehe! I love the color combination this week at the Colour Q, it's perfect for boy cards! Crushed Curry (retiring), Brilliant Blue (retiring), Tempting Turquoise and Certainly Celery! If you haven't already heard about Stampin' Up!'s COLOR RENOVATION you can click here to view the colors that will be retiring in June! Come June 1st they are 'while supplies last' so now is a GREAT time to stock up on your favorite colors!
Here's the inside of my card with a Crushed Curry Surfboard and some Tempting Turquoise waves! I found a new challenge blog, KL Stampin' N Scrappin' and since we share the same initials (KL) I had to enter right!?! The challenge this week is to decorate a card inside and out!

Here's a hint on how I got such a deep impression using the Stampin' Up! Texturz Plates! On there own - the texture is not deep at all and fairly light. So I just add a few pieces of thin cardboard as 'shims' and put them under the Texturz Plate before I run them through my Big Shot! So here's how the order should be:
  1. Multipurpose Platform (on Tab 1) - included with your Big Shot purchase
  2. Thin Pieces of Cardboard (I used 2-3)
  3. Texturz Plate
  4. Card Stock or Paper
  5. Standard Texturz Silicone Rubber (item # 114615) for $5.95
  6. Standard Texturz Impressions Pad (item # 114614) for $5.95
