Simple Just Because Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Keep On Swimming” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m back with another just because card using Lawn Fawn’s “Keep On Swimming” stamp set!
1
The images in this set are adorable, I was immediately drawn to the pufferfish! I stamped my images using my Misti stamping tool and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I used my alcohol markers to colour them but for the water in the fish bowl I used a combination of Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. I added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out.

I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative cuts and used Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey cuts to cut a window to the left of my panel.

I used the second largest from the “Basic Rectangles” to cut another white panel, I blended over it with Squeezed Lemonade and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide Inks using the Altenew “Watercolor Stripes” stencil. I cut a black panel from the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to frame my card.

I used my Misti to stamp my sentiment on white card stock using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink, trimmed it down to size and framed it with black card stock also to make it pop from my white panel. I adhered my white, striped and black panels together using Scor-Tape. I adhered my images with Scor-Tape also, apart from my pufferfish and sentiment strip which I adhered with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I adhered my panel flat to my card base and embellished with some blue Nuvo drops.

Cute Sea Themed Birthday Card Using Avery Elle’s “Sea-prise” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I thought I’d change it up from all the love themed posts this week and make a birthday card instead. Sea themed stamps are ones I’ve always struggled with, however I have a huge love for sharks and finally gave in to getting the “Sea-prise” stamp set from Avery Elle!

I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers. I used a white gel pen to add highlights to my images and some texture to my pufferfish before fussy cutting them out.

I cut a panel from white card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and cut a window in the panel using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts. I stamped the little bubbles all over my panel using Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink to add a little more detail to my panel. Once my ink was completely dry (with no risk of me smudging it!) I stamped my sentiment above my circle window using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
5
I cut a panel from white card stock bigger than my circle window. I blended Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink on to my card stock, keeping Broken China towards the bottom of it. I sprayed it using my Distress Sprayer and cleaned off the excess water with a paper towel.
6
I backed my white panel with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered the blue panel behind my window. I added some foam tape to the back of my shark and pufferfish also, adding the shark inside the circle and the pufferfish on the outer edge before adhering my entire panel to my card base.
