Hello and welcome to my blog. We have had family visiting for several days, some of whom we have not seen in person since last August! Needless to say – my focus was on them… it was awesome BTW…
My card today is a thank you card featuring a couple of new products: the Seascape bundle and the Ombre Specialty DSP. Oh my, the DSP is just sparkly and variable in shade and easy on the eye :). And the seahorse in the dies ( Sea Life Dies) is beautiful, as is the coral. There are other dies in the set just as stunning, but these are what I used for this card.
I began with a Balmy Blue panel that I ran through the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I used the wonderful Blending Brush to add some depth to this textured surface, begging with the lightest color to darker shades. By doing this, there is no need to change to a different Blending Brush. My colors were Balmy Blue, Misty Moonlight and Pacific Point, with the lighter colors at the top and getting darker as I moved down the panel. I next stamped the ‘sand’ in Crumb Cake ink at the bottom, then seaweed in both Garden Green and Old Olive inks. I then die cut the two shapes from the Ombre Specialty DSP, the coral in Mango Melody and the Seahorse in Night of Navy. It’s possible to see the shading more especially on the Seahorse in the photos. I added the seahorse with liquid glue, leaving the tail a bit loose so it could grasp a bit of the coral to keep itself from floating away:) The coral is added with mini dimensionals. The sentiment is from this same Seascape bundle and is stamped in Night of Navy ink on a Very Vanilla strip. Before stamping, I used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch to create the one end. The sentiment is added with dimensionals, then Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for the Seahorse eye and near the sentiment banner. This completed front panel was adhered to Crumb Cake with liquid glue, then dimensionals on the back of that to attach to the Night of Navy card base. And the card front was done!
For the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink, then the bubbles in Night of Navy ink. The fish was stamped in Crumb Cake ink, then colored just a bit with the Pumpkin Pie Blends. This was adhered with liquid glue to a Crumb Cake piece, then right into the inside of the card n- and voila!
For the Very Vanilla envelope I chose the three small fishies to stamp in Pacific Point ink (stamped off once), then the bubbles in Balmy Blue ink. For the flap I pulled out the Whale of a Time 6×6 DSP (retiring end of Jun), adhered it with liquid glue and trimmed to fit. And bingo – this card is ready! Card cuts are listed at the bottoms of this post.
