Friends Are Like Seashells Card Project Featuring Waves of the Ocean/ Savings are in Bloom! / New Robot Buddies Kids Card Kit

friends are like seashells…you collect them along the way

Here is another card using the Waves of the Ocean bundle. Today’s card features an ocean wave crashing to shore with a pelican looking on while seagulls drift lazily overhead. Can you hear them?

I used an ink dauber to blend the sky colors of Balmy Blue and Fresh Fresia, while I used a blender pen to deepen part of the wave, the pelican, and pilings. The card is mounted on a Misty Moonlight card base with Wink of Stella to sparkle up the white of the wave, the seagulls, pelican and cloud.

The Waves of the Ocean Collection is now open for customer orders and I’m very excited for you to get your hands on this collection because all of the items are beautiful!

Singing the Blues…and Greens (One Sheet Wonder) Card Project / Waves of the Ocean Collection Open March 1 for Customer Orders / March Savings Offer!

singing the blues…and greens – One sheet Wonder Card project

One Sheet Wonders are quick and easy to create! Essentially, you are creating your own designer paper using just stamps and ink and a full sheet of cardstock. Multiple images are stamped across the sheet of cardstock, then the cardstock can be cut up into four pieces to create four cards. I’m only showing one of the four cards I created from my One Sheet Wonder.

I chose a blue and green theme for my One Sheet Wonder. The colors I selected were Misty Moonlight, Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen and Granny Apple Green. I cut a panel from my One Sheet Wonder which was mounted onto a Granny Apple Green mat. Using VersaMark Ink I stamped the large flower and a sentiment onto white cardstock. I then sprinkled gold embossing powder over the stamped images and heat set using the heat tool. The gold embossed flower was then fussy cut and glued to a Granny Apple Green circle which I had die cut. I used the Every Day Label punch to punch out the gold embossed sentiment and both were adhered to the card front. I added a Misty Moonlight bow. Some stamping of the large flower image and small cluster of green flowers were also stamped on the card’s inside mat, as well as the front of the envelope and envelope flap. This completed the card.

One Sheet Wonders don’t have to be just flowers and leaves…you can use any stamps you have to create a card for a baby shower or child’s birthday, for example. Give it a try…but be warned…it’s a little addicting!
