I hadn’t bought the Trimming the Tree stamp set until the Perfect Partners thing came around. I love it!!
For this card, I wanted the scene to look like Florida Christmas! So, besides Trimming the Tree, I decided to use Waves of Inspiration, Friends like Seashells, and the wonderful sentiment from Sunkissed. It’s perfect!
For the background, I used Polished Pink, Mango Melody, Pacific Point, and Crumb cake. I then used the Embossing Paste to make those ripples/waves in the ocean part. Here’s short videos (one landscape, one portrait) on how I did that (the portrait one you have to click on- you’ll love the music I used!)You’ll see some other cards in the videos- I’ll post those soon!:
I stamped the pelican from Waves of Inspiration with Sahara Sand and used the water painter to pull the color then die cut.
I reversed stamped and die cut another pelican. Here’s a quick video on how I did that:
I stamped the tree with Parakeet Party and Soft Sea Foam. Then die cut.
I stamped the starfish with Calypso Coral and then used a water painter to pull the color in the middle. Then die cut.
I stamped the shells with Sahara Sand and die cut.
The ribbon across the tree is from the Trimming Trees die cuts.
I added three small strips of Soft Suede to the bottom (I inked them up a bit with Soft Suede).
The sentiment from Sunkissed is so dang perfect! I stamped with Soft Suede, then using my blending brush, I put some Soft Suede on there. I die cut it with Stitched Rectangles.
Don’t forget! This offer is available now from me! Only good until the products sell out or 9/30!
