I am loving living at the beach and having so much fun collecting shells. My sisters birthday is coming soon so I need to make her a handmade birthday card. I don’t know what she would do if I bought her a card, but she NEVER has to worry about that since I love making cards.
I will be using a rubber stamp from Peddler’s Pack of a pair of flip flops (beach theme again LOL) I stamped this image 2 times on plain white cardstock, because I wanted to add some dimension with layers. The sentiment stamp Live, love, laugh and be happy… is from Stampabilities.
I used one image for the base and colored using Copic sketch markers. Then with the other image I cut out the wave border and the flip flops. I used small pop dots on those images so they really looked like they were popping off the card. (of course I took the photo straight on so you really can’t see the dimension, sorry)
But now comes the really fun part. I glued tiny shells that I found at the beach onto the frame of the card, and since I raised that wave border the shells sit really nicely on the card.
~ Happy Birthday Lori ~
Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
Ever since I went to my local rubber stamp convention, I have so many new ideas for handmade cards. And the best part is that it is not costing any more money, since I have all the supplies. I am using all of the stamps that I have already owned but am using them in a totally different way. I went from just stamping on cardstock to making 3D images.
So here is a bunch of supplies that I have used to make this Easter Card. Rubber stamps from Stamps Happen Inc, and Stampabilities. Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Cutter Bee Scissors, Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page paper punch, Cardstock and alot of Copic Sketch Markers.
I also used my Cricut Expression machine to cut out the border grass from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and also used the Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge for the small patches of grass.
The template was used to cut (with X-Acto knife) small lines and then folded to make a 3-D platform. It took awhile to get the folds just right, but it was sure worth the effort.
It was so much fun coloring these stamped Easter eggs, then I cut them out and added them onto the card.
I almost forgot to tell you. I wanted the front of the Easter card to be really simple since the inside had all of the fun stuff . So all I did was stamped Happy Easter on the bottom corner and then I used some Easter egg ribbon from Bobbin Ribbon, that I wrapped around the card and made a bow on the front. That’s it really simple.
Look how cute this Easter card came out. This little chick is so adorable.
Happy Easter Everyone!
