Hello friends and Happy Monday!

Like many of you, we will be having a staycation this summer. It's time to explore our own backyards and enjoy the nature around us. Thankfully we do have mountains and lakes a few hours away that we can explore. We will miss the beach this year, but hopefully, we will have things figured out for next summer as we would love to travel back to Europe to visit our family and maybe get that beach time in. Today's shaker card theme is about missing someone, so I thought it would be appropriate to create a missing you Beach card.

CARD DETAILS

To start, I began by die cutting 2 of the frames from the SLIMLINE SENTIMENTS EYELET DIES. I then used the MAKING WAVES LONG BORDER DIES to create the sand and the ocean waves using the inside die cuts of the SLIMLINE SENTIMENTS EYELET DIES

I used Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Inks (OI) to blend out the sand on the gentle waves and glued those pieces together and set them aside to use later on top of the shaker card.

For the top of the card panel, I blended out a soft sun using a circle from the CIRCLE SPOTLIGHT STENCIL and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink and glued that to the card base. For the sky, I used Broken China OI.

Next, I glued the ocean waves to the middle are of the card base that I had blended Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean OI. The bottom area was left blank as the sand will cover up the area in the final steps of the card.

I then glued acetate to the scalloped slimline frame and added very thin strips of foam tape all around the edges and across the bottom just under where the sand will be. This will keep the shaker bits from falling all the way down under the sand and make the confetti more visible.

On the top half of the card base, I added my Confetti Mix (see links below) in a pile and then pressed the frame in place.

Before gluing down the sand area, I stamped the missing you sentiment from PARADISE BLOOMS.  I then finished off the card by stamping out a few images from the HELLO SUMMER set and did some simple no-line coloring using Copic markers and added them to the sand area.

I hope this Missing You card doesn't make you miss the beach too much but instead inspire you to send a card to a friend that you spend time with at the beach or anywhere else that reminds you of them.

Have a wonderful week! Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting πŸ‘‹

Koi Pond Inspired Friendship Cards | Ink On 3


Atelier Inks, blending Fadeout Ink, Friendship, Ink On 3, Koi Pond Stamp Set, Pondie Stencil, Shaker Card, Water coloring, Wavy Stencil,

Happy Friday Peeps!

Today I am sharing a trio of cards inspired by the new KOI POND stamp set from Ink On 3.  I am in love with the latest release, which by the way I just received not too long ago because snail mail is really real right now people😏 Thanks Covid!

Check out the goodies from the latest release... The KOI POND, BEYOUTIFUL, MIRROR STAMP, PONDIE STENCIL and the WAVY STENCIL.


CARD DETAILS

The first card I created was this shaker card. I first stamped out the fish using the FADEOUT INK onto Bristol Paper. I then colored them in using a variety of ATELIER INKS, I used every color on them listed below in the Supply section. 

Next, I masked the fish and added a very light blend of blue using the new WAVY STENCIL and ATELIER PEACOCK BLUE ink.

I then stamped out the Lilly pads using ATELIER GODDESS GREEN by doing some second and third generation stamping to get the gradient shades. The ripples and bubbles were stamped using the ATELIER PEACOCK BLUE ink and just blurred and colored in with a water brush. 

The sentiment stamped in the center also comes from the KOI POND set that I stamped using BLACKOUT INK.

Before adding the shaker window,  I added a layer of LIQID PIXIE DUST to all the KOI fish for sparkle.

I then used a Rectangle Frame to create the window for the shaker panel that I filled with clear sequin bits to allow the colors to shine.

This next card was so simple to make and I love the results.

I began by adding a subtle green color of ATELIER GODDESS GREEN using the WAVY STENCIL. I then moved the stencil and repeated the process, this time using ATELIER PEACOCK BLUE. Before removing the stencil I added a layer of Glimmer Paste, removed the stencil, and allowed it to dry.

I then finished off this simple card by adding the stamped sentiment on the card from the KOI POND set and adding a few clear bubbles.

For this final card, I started by blending ATELIER BEE STING YELLOWATELIER MARILYN RED, and ATELIER PEACOCK BLUE together and overlapping them in areas to create the blended colors on the PONDIE STENCIL. Before removing the stencil I added a layer of glimmer paste and then set it aside to dry.

I then stamped out one of the KOI using JUICY INK, and then heat set it using GOLD RUSH EMB.PWD. I then used the same 3 colors that I used on the background to color the fish in. Once it was dry I fussy cut the fish out.

The sentiment comes from two older sets, the Hey from HEY GORGEOUS and the Friend from HEELS TO YOU set that were stamped again using JUICY INK, and then heat set it using GOLD RUSH EMB.PWD.

To finish this card, I popped the Koi onto a bed of coiled foil thread and added some iridescent bubbles.

Hope this trio of Koi Pond friendship cards inspired you today. 

Thank you for stopping by 😊
Until next time... Happy Crafting πŸ‘‹
