Today I’m sharing a card I made for my hubby, because some days ago it was the anniversary of our first date. Lawn Fawn “Manatee-rific” stamp set is perfect for this kind of card. Plus, this is one of my fav stamps sets from the summer release. Seriously, how cute are these manatees??
I colored the manatees with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and used the coordinating dies to die cut all the images. I inked a watercolor panel with Distress inks using Hero Arts “Waves” stencil. I rotated the stencil because I wanted the effect of seaweed instead of waves.
I used Mama Elephant “All prettied up” dies to die cut the scalloped frame and then adhered the panel to a card base with foam tape. I used foam tape to adhere the manatees as well.
For the sentiment, I stamped the word “cheers”, from Lawn Fawn “Let’s bokeh” stamp set, and the rest of the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it on silver. As a final touch, I added a few sequins from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards and some sparkle here and there using Wink of Stella.
I have a fun pop-up box card to share with you today featuring Mama Elephant “Little Monkey Agenda” stamps and dies. These monkeys are the cutest!! The idea behind this card is the saying “not my circus, not my monkeys”, which I think is super funny.
I began inking some Bristol paper to have an striped pattern, which gives the look of circus, and run it through my Big Shot using Lawn Fawn “scalloped box card pop-up” dies. I decorated the outside with the first part of the proverb using Neat and Tangled “Journaling Alphas” dies. I covered the letters with Glossy Accents after I glued them and added the little Son Gokū, the Monkey King 🙂
I added a lot of monkeys from Mama Elephant ” Little Monkey Agenda” stamps and dies to the inside of the card. Some of them are hanging from the tightrope, some others are making acrobatics… I wanted to have a lot of things going on here!
The second part of the expression is on the front flap. I used Lawn Fawn “Harold’s ABCs” stamps to spell it, stamping it on a white panel with Versafine Onyx black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
I love how this card tuned out. I think it is super fun! I hope you like it too!!
I have a couple of cards I shared on Flickr and on Instagram, but I wanted to do so here too. The first one features Purple Onion Designs rubber stamps, designed by Stacey Yacula. Her images are gorgeous and it’s really easy to make beautiful cards with them. I stamped the image on kraft cardstock and colored it with Faber-Castell Polychromos color pencils. I also decorated the envelope to match the card.
For the second card I used Lawn Fawn “Beam me up” stamp set. I love these aliens! When I first saw this set I have the idea of making a Space Invaders video game themed card. I made a slider card and to make the card look like the screen of a video game console I used black cardstock for the background and added a red frame.
