As I was trying to fall asleep the other night, I came up with an idea- I wanted a wave on a slim card!
You’ll see in the video that my last few weeks have been crazy! I am redoing my stamp room (YAY!) so I had to start figuring out what to do with everything. I had quite a few retired products, so I decided to list them on ebay. I’ve done that before, but never this many. 158 products for sale!! What the what?? Here’s a link to see them all:
I bought the hedgehog stamps and matching punch a few weeks ago. I had them on my table, knowing I had to make something with them! I was sitting on the couch that night in my family room thinking about what I could do…..
I know! I wanted them to ride bikes!
I had to do a lot of reverse stuff on this card- the hedgehogs, the trees, and the bikes! Reverse stamping is pretty easy, but reverse die cutting was a little different!
Here’s the video to see how I did the whole card!
Lots and LOTS of products used on this card- here they are!
This year’s first SAB is one of my favorites. I love the otters and the Simply Marbleous paper!
I used the Diorama dies to make it look like one of the otters was swimming, one peeking, and one standing up outside of the water.
I colored the Otters with the Watercolor pencils. I used Early Espresso, Basic Gray, and Pumpkin Pie. I colored, then I went over all of it with Gamsol- an odorless mineral spirits. I used what they call “Blending Stumps” to color the Gamsol on top of the pencil markings. You can google that- they sell them in many places.
The grass/plants dies is from the new Horizon dies from the mini catalog.
I made this card a few days ago. I mentioned it when I showed the “You Got This” card- the card for the 9 year old, teammate of my youngest son in XC, who has been diagnosed leukemia. Here’s a link to that:
I made this card for a friend of mine. I met her this school year, her son plays football with my youngest son. She is awesome! She takes the kids to places all the time- Scream-a-Geddon, Sunwest Park for wake boarding and knee boarding, birthday parties, etc.! If you’re not in the Tampa area- look up those things! We have some awesome things to do around here!
I made this card pretty fast. Using the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set, I used Sponge Daubers to ink it up using Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay. I stamped it on Basic White cardstock.
I die cut the matching dies with the AMAZING Silver Foil Specialty Paper (it’s on page 23 in the mini catalog). I fussy cut the leaves off. Before I did this, I actually die cut the die with Basic White cardstock and put Versamark all over it and then added silver embossing powder. It looked great, but I messed up the die cut unintentionally later. I kept that one and used it on another card- I’ll show you that in a few days.
For the sentiment, I used the stamp set Biggest Wishes. I stamped with Versamark, embossed with silver embossing powder and then die cut it with one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies.
