Thanks so much for stopping by again today! I had so much fun with the Your Next Stamp challenge that I wanted to pull out the only other set I have from them – Snorkel Fun Penguin – and try another simple but fun idea I had for it.
For this card I inked up a panel with distress inks and spritzed it with water. Then I die cut some water from iridescent vellum using my sea borders dies from Newton’s Nook. Then I stamped my penguin and die cut him out. I thought it would be fun to put the sentiment in speech bubble like the penguin was saying it so I grabbed my Newton’s Nook Speech Bubble dies and chose the one that fit best.
The top of the card looked empty so I grabbed my sky scene builder dies and cut some clouds out. I needed a way to hide the adhesive under the vellum so I pulled out the largest of my stitched scalloped rectangle frames from Lawn Fawn, die cut one from white cardstock and set out to assemble all my pieces.
Once everything was adhered I moved to the inside of my card. I stamped my sentiment in two inks for added interest and then thought it would be fun to put some fish around it to bring the ocean feel from the front to inside too! These fish are from the Lawn Fawn Tank You stamp set.
Once those were glued in place I went back to the front for finishing touches!
Which happened to be simple white gel pen accents and glossy accents on the penguin’s goggles, snorkel and the polka dots on his floaty. The iridescent vellum adds some fun shimmer already so I didn’t think it needed much more.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
