Hello! Happy New Year everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here on the PP blog! I miss you all so much! I’ve been busy getting all of the pre-orders on the Stencils 360°™ shipped out, and I’m so happy that I get to share the joy of crafting with this new tool together with you!
Ashley chose a panel of light blue cardstock cut with the second-largest Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle stand-alone die set. Combining the Stencils 360°TM and the Waterspout circular stencil, she ink blended light blue ink and white pigment ink in alternating sequence to create this wonderful underwater background!
I just love the tone-on-tone effect and how this pattern mimics the bubbles under water surrounding all these cute images!
She stamped and coloured some images from the The More We Get Together stamp set and arranged them onto the card panel, adhering them with liquid glue or foam squares to give it more dimension. She used the sentiment “You have my seal of approval” which coordinates with the adorable seal image.
All of the images were colored with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. I love that she used the slimline card in its portrait orientation so that she can arrange her scene in a tiered manner!
She die cut two slimline panels, and one of which had two windows for her shaker element. I love the beautifully blended turquoise tones on her card panels. Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink was used on the back panel and Peacock Feather on the top panel.
I love the adorable seal on the ice berg floating at the very top with its thumbs up! As you look further down, you will see a bunch of adorable sea creatures including some tiny fishes, cuttle fishes and even a jelly fish!
Other accessory images like the seaweed, coral reefs and sea shell, just make the scene so much fuller and cuter!
To finish off, she added white gel pen highlights. Thank you Anja for this fun and awesome creation!
She created the background by die cutting an A2 sized panel with the large die fromDots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlay and ink blending it using Scattered Straw Distress Oxide ink for the beach, and Mermaid Lagoon to portray the ocean.
She used the little girl server image and the truck from The Sweetest Truck stamp set, combining them with the the girl in swimsuit along with several other cute images from the Summer Sunshine stamp set.
I love how she splattered water onto the ink blended card while adding dabs of white acrylic paint with a bristle brush. This technique really mimics the waves hitting the shoreline!
The extra beverage and the watermelon slices on top of the truck are just too cute! White gel pen details and glossy accents were added for some final touches!
Thank you so much Anja for this summery inspiration!
She stamped a bunch of images from both sets and colored them up using bright summery colors. I love how the cool kitty is suntanning on the beach and at the same time, having all the cute creatures swimming in the ocean!
She used the largest die from the Cross Stitched and Dots Large Rectangle Overlays on her back panel for the wonderful boarder detail. She cut the stitched layers from several panels of Bristol smooth cardstock, and inked them up using Distress Oxide Inks.
I just love the splash of water and the watery inks on the cards for the added texture.
She used the sentiment, “Seas the Day” from the Summer Sunshine stamp set on the sand layer then adhered all of the pieces together.
Thank you so much Davina for this lovely scene. It is so vibrant and lively! I really love how she composed her card into a split level scene where you can see both the beach and the underwater!
She started with a pop-up shadow box die from Lawn Fawn as the basic structure of this box. She added some yellow patterned papers to the faces of the box as accents. I love how she removed the front flap, cut a panel at the front of the box and added a piece of acetate as the window.
I love how she positioned the cute images at different depths; some were just behind the window, while some were adhered at the very back. The kitty blowfish near the centre portion was the focal point and she choice a sentiment “You Blow Meow Away!” – so cute!
She also added a piece of wavy cardstock in front of the blowfish as if it was just swimming to the surface! The whole card came together so nicely!
We hope you enjoy Anja‘s pop-up box card! Thank so much Anja, your card is so amazing!
