Sending You Oceans of Love with Memory Box


Hello and welcome!  I'm up on the Memory Box blog today with this fun slimline "oceans of love" card!
Here's another look at my card:


Here's how I created my card:

1)  Dry emboss the "Ocean Fish 3D embossing folder/die set" on white card stock.  I lightly spray both sides of the card stock so I get a deep impression and no cracking on the paper.
2)  Using the coordinating dies, cut out each of the fish.
3)  With rainbow colored inks and an ink blender, add color to the top portion of each fish.
4)  Ink blend some extra turquoise card stock so you can cut the "Kelp Collage" & "Deepwater Collage" foliage from it for the bottom of your card.  
5)  Take a slimline piece of card stock, I used 3.5" by 8.5" and dry emboss the "Waves" 3D embossing folder on the top half first and then run it through again on the bottom half.  Don't worry about the seam you see, you will cover it with the sentiment.  
6)  Heat emboss the sentiment from the "Deep Blue Ocean" stamp and die set.
7)  Add the fish in rainbow order, some with glue some with foam tape, the sentiment in the middle on the seam, and the foliage on the bottom.
8)  Lastly add some clear "Fairy Drops" around the front of the card.

Below you can see the fish embossing folder and stamp set I used.


And one more photo of this colorful fish card!

Second Cup Sunday - A Brew Will Get You Through



Hello and welcome to another "Second Cup Sunday!"  I'm up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today, using a "Dare 2B Artzy" wavy slimline die, a "Right At Home" sentiment, and an image from "Penny Black."  The plaid paper is from "Brutus Monroe."



 This card was super easy and quick to put together.  I heat embossed the sentiment in white and then added the image after coloring it with alcohol markers.  I cut the wavy die and the plaid mat and then added them to a 3" by 6" slimline card base.  Lastly I added 3 small hearts from my stash and put a little sparkle pen on them for shine.  Here's one last look:



I hope you like my card for today!  I think that bunny is just adorable!

Hugs with D2BA Waves Hot Foil Plate


Hello and welcome!  I'm up on the Dare 2B Artzy blog today with this fun card featuring the Make Waves hot foil plate.  Here's a closer look:



For my card I used the negative piece of turquoise foil on some dark blue card stock and was able to get these amazing looking waves for my fish to swim in.  The sentiment is from the "Hugs" tag die set and the fish are cut from D2BA Make Waves patterned paper.  

The fish and shell were cut from the "Make Waves, Under the Sea" papers and the sentiment strip was made with the "Sea Horses" stamp and die set.  I also used the dies from this set to cut the fish from the patterned paper.  The tag was made with the "Mini Hugs Tag" die set and I actually foiled the rectangle from the die set before cutting it out.I also used some water droplet gems from my stash.


Here's one last look:
































I hope you like my card for today!  I had so much fun creating it!

And on a sad note, today will be my last post as a design team member for D2BA.  I am stepping down from the team to spend more time with my husband/family and I am adding a couple of students to my piano studio.  I've enjoyed my last 6 months on the team and I want to thank Cindy and the whole team for making me feel so welcome and for the chance to design with these amazing products! 

Keep crafting my Artzy friends!

Second Cup Sunday - Coffee is Always a Good Idea

 

 Hello and welcome, I'm up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog with another Second Cup Sunday!  I made a quick and easy card using a sentiment from Super Sponsor, Newton's Nook, and a cup die from Super Sponsor CAS-ual 
  

To make my card I die cut the cup and lid from watercolor card stock and inked the edges with tan ink.  Next I die cut the center piece from corrugated card board and added it to the cup.  The tiny pink hearts are actually a very thin washi tape.  Next I stamped the sentiment directly onto the cup at the bottom.  I added the cup to a piece of heart paper from my stash and also cut an extra larger heart with a heart die in my stash to place on top of the cardboard.  The heart paper was cut to 2.75" by 5.75" and then matted onto a 3" by 6" mini slimline card base. Here's on last look at my card:

   

 I hope you like my card for today, I really love this little set and the price point is really reasonable!  Here's a little kindness quote to get you through the upcoming week:
