Hello Sweetums - Oceans of Encouragement





 Rina here with an ocean themed card using the HelloSweetums “Oceans of Encouragement” stamp set.  I am having holiday crafting withdrawals, but I am also excited to start using non holiday color palettes! 

I created a background using Distress Oxide inks in Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass.  I added more texture to the background by splattering white paint.  I then used copic markers to color in my images.

I had planned to tuck the ocean critters into waves on my background, but I had a hard time covering up these little cuties.  Instead, I adhered them directly to the card making sure that the images faced different ways.  I stamped out the sentiment on a strip of white paper and cut a fishtail on the end.

I finished off the card using the Inkon3 Liquid Pixie Dust to add shimmer to the images.  I also added sequins for added shine.

Hope you try out this card, I absolutely adore the shark image, it is my FAVORITE!

Thanks for stopping by,
Rina

I Am Roses - Teresa Collins Christmas Home Layout

So I'm in LOVE with the new Teresa Collins Christmas Home paper....decided to get a jump start on the holidays and start my Christmas projects NOW!!!!  I had so much fun creating the Haunted Hallows layout that I decided to create another 12x12.  12x12's are challenging for me and I do not really do them, I decided to challenge myself and create a couple (...hope you follow my YouTube channel (scrapstress), because there are MORE to come!, hint hint) 

I also wanted to use some non traditional Christmas flowers to accent my layout.  I used Red, Black, White and Green flowers in different styles to match the colors in my layout. I LOVE the way this came out.  I love this time of year because Christmas and Halloween layouts are the best, the new paper coming out is so LUSCIOUS, I almost feel like doing these themey projects all year round...WHY wait!!!

Mama Elephant's #celebrating6years Anniversary Event

Happy Anniversary Mama Elephant!!
This release is super SPECTACULAR and I was so happy to work with the Cool Penguins stamp set!  The set comes with the most adorable penguins getting ready to wrap some holiday gifts.  I used the Basic Rectangles die set to create a window opening as these penguin friends are going to wrap their gifts together.  I also really adore the sentiment that comes with the stamp set.

I wanted to keep the coloring super simple on this card and used a few light colored Copic markers.  My favorite Copics are the ones that end in 0000 and 000 because I can achieve a light almost watercolor look.  
Here are the colors I used: B00, RV02, RV23, YR00, YR000

To finish off the card I wanted to add the star banner from the Sentiments from a Yeti stamp set, its one of my all time favorite stamps.  The set also comes with a banner that is oh so cute.  I love stars on a background and used the Lots of Stars Creative Cuts die.  I ink blended the background with Tattered Ros…
