An Underwater Shaker Card with Anja!

Hi crafty friends! I’m so excited to share Anja’s shaker card for today! Anja used our recent released The More We Get Together stamp set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts for this card.

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!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you like this example featuring The More We Get Together stamps and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts!

Anja’s Sun-Kissed Beach Scene Creation

Hi crafty friends! Anja is back today sharing a just because card full of summer vibe! Her card features The Sweetest Truck stamp set & its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts; and the Summer Sunshine stamp set & its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

She created the background by die cutting an A2 sized panel with the large die from Dots 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!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

A Delightful Summer Scene Card with Davina!

Hey everyone! Davina is back to share with us a super delightful summer scene card!

Davina combined cool images from the Summer Sunshine stamp set and The More We Get Together stamp set to create this unique and incredible scene!

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!

Thank for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

Anja’s Pop-Up Surprise!

Hello! Today Anja has for us a fun pop-up shadow box featuring the new The More We Get Together stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts!

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.

She stamped out her images from The More We Get Together stamp set and cut them out using its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. All images were colored with Copic markers.

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!

An Underwater Scene Shaker Card with Jo!

Hi everybody! Thanks for stopping by our blog! Today, we have Jo sharing her gorgeous shaker card with us!

Jo mixed the different sizes dies from the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays and the Dots Meet Dashes Small Rectangles Overlays to create the boarder detail on her base panel and the two smaller frames.

She added acetate to the two smaller frames to create the shaker windows. The adorable underwater creatures were from The More We Get Together stamp set. The pair of cuttle fishies formed the main focal point and the sentiment “Wanna Cuttle?” is just the perfect match!

She also used a tiny bubble image from the Hot Mama stamp set for some extra detail on the seaweeds. I just love this bright and vibrant card! Check out her video tutorial below or over on our YouTube Channel.

Thank you so much Jo for your wonderful inspiration!
