Lately, I’ve been not crafting nor blogging as much as I wanted. In fact these days I’m at my dad’s house because he had hip replacement surgery and although he is recovering very well he needs some help. I’ve brought some stamps and color pencils and I hope to have some time to color something! Anyways, I have a card to share with you featuring Hello Bluebird “Seaside Girls” stamps and dies. I know it’s officially fall but we are having some lovely sunny days and (sometimes) September is still summer in Basque Country. Plus I really wanted to use these sweet girls!!
I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink. Then, I colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and die cut them using coordinating dies. I also added some highlights and details with a white gel pen.
I made a very simple background because I didn’t want to distract the attention from the girls. I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched Oval Stackables” dies on Bristol cardstock and then blended Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs for the sand, Tumbled Glass for the sea and Tattered Rose for the sky. Then, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx black ink and Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink. I also stamped the seagulls using Mama Elephant Winter ink.
I glued the images to the panel and then I adhered the panel to the top of another oval piece to make the card. I wanted to frame the scene, so I die cut an oval one nesting two oval dies. I used a blue alcohol marker to color the frame and glued it to the background panel.
I love how this turned out. I really enjoyed coloring the girls!
Thanks for stopping by!! Have an awesome day!
Today I have a super fun summer card featuring Lawn Fawn “Baaah humbug” stamps. Yes! A summer card using a Christmas stamp set! I’m totally in love with these sheep, I love sheep and these remind me of “Shaun the Sheep” tv series 🙂
First, I stamped the images on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink, colored them using ShinHan Touch Twin Brush markers and fussy cut everything. For the sunglasses I used Lawn Fawn “Lovable legends” stamp set. I think the hearts included on this set are the perfect size for the glasses, and I stamped them with Memento Lady Bug ink. For the shark fin I used the bottom of one of the ghosts from Lawn Fawn “Booyah” stamp set. The glass is from Mama Elephant “Otterly adorable” stamp set. Next, I made the float using the smaller die from Lawn Fawn “Small stitched ovals” on a piece of paper from Lawn Fawn “Let’s polka in the dark” paper collection. I used my craft knife to cut a slot in the float for the sheep and also to cut around the sheep’s paws.
I used Mama Elephant “Peek a frame” dies to die cut two panels from Bristol paper and one from vellum. Then, I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched hillside borders” dies on one of the Bristol panels, and Mama Elephant “Ocean Waves Trio” dies on the vellum panel. I used Lawn Fawn “Slide on over” dies to die cut a slide on my background and vellum panels. Next, I blended Wild Honey and Dried Marigold Distress inks on the background panel, Peacock Feathers on the vellum panel and on the front panel, I used Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs for the sand and Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers for the sea. On the sand I used some brown alcohol markers, my Sakura Stardust clear pen and also applied some Picket Fence Distress paint with a brush.
Next, I used La Vida en Scrap “Escríbeme” stamp set to stamp the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. Last, I adhered everything together and to a card base, and added some details with a white gel pen and Glossy Accents to the float and to the sunglasses.
I love this sheep, I think she looks so cool with her float!! I hope you like this card.
