I hope that you’re playing along with the Scrap ‘N Stamp daily challenge, and enjoying yourself! I love visiting the challenge page HERE on Facebook, and seeing how creative everyone is. If you haven’t joined us yet, it’s easy to do! Just join the page, create a project for one of the daily prompts, and share your creation on the page. Be sure to use the hashtag #snschallenge there, & on your other social media pages. Play along with as many days as you want. Then, at the end of the month, one lucky participant is randomly chosen, and WINS a $50 GIFT CARD to shop Scrap ‘N Stamp! Today’s word prompt is ‘sentiments’, courtesy of me *smile*. I chose to use the Poppystamps Sea Life Sentiments stamp sets, along with some Lavinia sea themed stamps.
I admit that I just love the design style of Lavinia stamps! And since I’ve been in a sea/ocean theme lately, it was easy to choose the Sea Creatures, and Sea Tangle stamps to use on today’s card.
This card was fun to do – I just let my creativity have fun!
First, start with a blue slimline card base. Next, use the Picket Fence Studios Slimline Die Cutting System to cut a piece of white cardstock for the back layer, and a light blue/green piece for the top layer. Next, use the stitched circle from this same die set, and die cut 3 circles from the front.
Use the Lavinia Sea Tangle stamp and a turquoise ink, and stamp randomly on the die cut front panel. Set this aside, while you work on the back panel. On the white panel, use a blending tool to apply Broken China Distress Oxide ink within the 3 circle areas. Next, place the piece in your stamp platform, and line up the image stamps from the Sea Creatures set. Cover the stamps with Versamark ink, and stamp. Have fun with the embossing powders – I combined 3 WOW embossing powders in Gold, Florida Sunset and Sea of Tranquility on the 3 images. Shake off any excess powder, and set with your heat tool. Stamp the sentiments from the Poppystamps Sea Life Sentiments set in Versamark, and use the left over combined colours of embossing powder for them.
Now, layer the stamped die cut/stamped panel over the image panel with foam tape or squares, and then attach the sentiments. Finally, add some sparkle with Picket Fence Studios Spiked Ocean Water Sequin Mix, and some clear acrylic bubbles.
I love the sparkle & shine from the mixed embossing powders, along with the sequins!
