Joy Clair - Seas the Day

Hello Everyone, 

today I am sharing two cards using that cute set called Seas the Day from Joy Clair! 

For my first card I used a stencil to make the background. Using distress ink and sponging in a lighter color at the top. I colored the mermaids with Copics. their fishtails are paper pieced with paint chips and heat embossed in gold. The rest I just stamped directly on the background, addling glossy accents to the bubbles and Wink of Stella to the jelly fish.

For my second card I used the same set - those fish are just the mermaids tails. Their back fins are the crowns. Just drew in the eyes and mouth. Added Bakers Twine and a little strip of patterned paper (envelope liner).

Hope you liked this!

Don't forget to play with us in the Joy Clair June challenge - the theme is Masculine or Fathers Day and we have a beautiful inspiration picture to give you some colors to play with! The challenge closes June 30, so there is still some time to play along!

Are you kidding me. The first card is adorable with those sweet mermaids. But the second one...well, all I can say is, you're a freaking genius to see that those elements could be fish and the crown on their backs. I'm totally mind blown.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
