  • 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

  • Fish U Were Here


    A fun little vacation card with some adorable fish and sea creatures. And the nautical frame is perfect. Send it to someone you miss and would love to see. Also good for birthdays or just miss you & hope to see you soon.


    A big congrats to Linda, the newest Featured Stamper(FS903)! She has a fun, really big gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the cute shark & fish theme, but used different images, dies, colors & left off the designer paper.

    After coloring & die cutting all the little fishy friends, I did the same w/ the palm trees then die cut the nautical frame out of white. The greeting was stamped directly onto this, then I backed it w/ a piece of teal. The little fish & trees were arranged & popped up just a bit.

    And here are the Copics I used:

  • Birthday Aquarium


    A big congrats to Janine, the newest Featured Stamper (FS835)! She has a big, beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout, but used different images, dies & paper. I also made mine A2 size instead of square.

    My little miniature aquarium view card was made using some really cute undersea creatures & seaweed/coral images. After coloring, they were all die cut along w/ a really large white circle for the background. For the pink stitched frame, I die cut a circle stitch cover die & cut out one of the circles it has to use for my frame. The greeting was stamped directly onto the dp along w/ the cute little splashes.

    I just love the happy expressions in their cute little faces. Here are the Copics I used:
