  • Sending Vitamin Sea


    Being sick in the summer is no fun but here’s a little get well card sure to make them feel better. Some cute little sea creatures in bright colors swimming in a sea of marbled paper against the cool aqua background is so soothing.

    A big congrats to Sue, the newest Featured Stamper (FS907). She has a big beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the sea creature theme & layout but I used different images, dies, colors & made mine a get well card.

    After coloring & die cutting the little creatures, I die cut a piece of pale green marbled paper twice w/ a set of stacked arches. I used the larger one first, then used a size 2 down to cut out the smallest arch. The size in between the two was used to cut the teal arch. The large pale aqua background was cut w/ a large cover die w/ square holes. After cutting it, I positioned the die (on one side only) 1 square in toward the center & cut that one side only. I did this again for the bottom. I wanted some of the teal showing around the outside & this was my solution to making the die a little smaller. The greeting was stamped before I put all the layers together & added the images.

    Here are the Copics I used: (that’s a BV02 in the lower left, in case you can’t see it, & the Y04 & Y17 were used on a fish I ended up not using).

    Thanks

  • Enjoy the Waves


    An all die cut card featuring cute little sailboats, a beautiful rope and anchor undersea frame and some lovely sea themed paper. The main color is a neutral sand with ivory  and navy boat sails and a beautiful blue wavy pattern papaer behind it. It only looks complicated, but it’s actually pretty easy.

    For the Inspiration Challenge, we are visiting The Other Aesthic & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS picture of some beach inspired pillows. I really liked the neutral w/ the navy. After die cutting the large frame, I trimmed it around the edges just a bit then attached it to a slightly larger piece of the blue designer paper. Helpful Tip: Before you attach the 2 pieces of paper together, line them up & die cut the larger circle out of the blue paper, in the section where the circle will go on top. Then cut the smaller circle out of the sand paper in the same area. When they are attached together, they will cover the missing circles in the top frame piece. It keeps you from having to use 2 pieces of paper.  All the boat parts were cut out of ivory & navy & some waves were cut out of the blue and a small section of the sand color.

     For the waves, after attaching them to the bottom of the circle, I ran it back thru the die cutting machine w/ the same stitched circle to trim the excess. The greeting was stamped onto a separate piece of ivory, trimmed closely, & split in half. I attached them to little rectangles of the blue designer paper & added them to the front as shown.

    Thanks

  • Sailboat Birthday



    A fun birthday card with a nautical theme in patriotic colors. Great for a masculine birthday, a birthday near a holiday like July 4th, or anyone who loves seafaring images. Easy to change out the colors to customize to your preference. I think it would look terrific in smokey blues with sand colored accents.


    It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS906) so a big congrats to Tanya! She has big, beautiful gallery full of fun scrap pages & lovely cards. I chose THIS card to case. I liked the layout & nautical theme so I kept those. I used different images, dies, a die cut boat instead of a stamped one & two stenciled backgrounds instead of designer paper.

    After die cutting the boat, waves & little frames, I popped up the boat & frame & put it all together. I  used an anchor & star stencil on the navy panel. The anchors were stenciled w/ the darkest of the blue ink set & I used a white pigment ink for the stars. The red was done w/ the sailboat stencil & dark red ink & white pigment for the waves.  I liked the white torn edge on Tanya’s but my paper wasn’t white core so I rubbed the white ink over the torn edge. The two panels were married together on top of a white panel & die cut w/ the largest stitched rectangle die. The greeting was added onto a little tag.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
