Hello friends and happy Monday! 

I hope you all are enjoying your summer so far. I have yet to do so. Work is out of control as we are so short-staffed and it looks like I won't be getting some of my vacation requests approved so it will be a staycation for the time that was approved which will be later on in August. Plus, how can anyone get anything done with the kids at home, lolπŸ˜†. I feel like I'm constantly cooking or cleaning. Anyways, I digress... guess I was wishing I was somewhere like on today's card for the summer. A girl can dream, right!?!

I kept this card super simple as I wanted the Ocean Circlescape Dies to be the focal point.

CARD RECIPE

  • Die-cut the Ocean Circlescape Dies using paper for ink blending. 
  • Ink blend the waves, sun, and sky using distress oxide inks, see colors listed below. 
  • Spray the waves with water to add distress and texture to the blending. 
  • Glue all the die-cut pieces back onto a circle smaller than the circle shape. I used one of the circles from the Circlescapes Shaker Frames.

  • Pop up the sun in the center using foam tape.
  • Add white gel pen details to the waves, sun, and sky. 
  • Add a thin layer of glue to each layer of wave and add chunky glitter for a touch of sparkle.
  • Add the birthday sentiment from the Foil Script: Wishes Hot Foil Plate/Dies that has been foiled using polished brass glimmer foil with the Hot foil glimmer system.
  • Add foam dots to the back of the finished Circlescape panel and attach it to a black piece of A2-sized cardstock that has been glued to an A2 card base.

    Ocean Themed Frameless Shaker Cards | Honey Bee Stamps | Perfect Day Instagram Hop


    Hello my friends and welcome back, it feels like it's been a while since my last post. 

    Today's cards are part of the Perfect Day Release Instargam Hop for Honey Bee Stamps. So if you would love to take part and qualify for 1 of two $50 Gift Cards that will be given away, click HERE.

    All three of these frameless/infinity shaker cards have the Layered Waves Stencils in common. This time I got 3 cards from one technique. The technique is actually simple, rather than wiping or washing your stencils after the ink blending is done for the first card background, spray the stencils and pick up the watered-down ink with a card panel. I'll explain more with the next card.

    CARD RECIPE
    • Ink blend the background panel using Oxide inks with the Layered Waves Stencils. I used Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Saphire, and Blueprint Sketch Oxides.
    • The sea life comes from the new Ocean Deep Scene Builder Dies that I also ink blended and then added details to them using Copic markers and a white gel pen.
    • For the bottom of the card, I tore a piece of kraft cardstock and then added Copic maker details.
    • The stamp on the background panel comes from the Seas The Day stamps set done in Intense Black Ink.
    • To assemble this card I first attached the turtle to a clear thread and secured it with tape on the back of the turtle. I then wrapped the ends around the panel, leaving a little slack for up and down movement when the card is shaken. I also glued down any elements that I wanted to be on the inside of the shaker.
    • Next, I used a piece of cellophane plastic for the card front. For a tutorial on a DIY frameless shaker click HERE.
    • Once the pocket was created I then filled it with shaker bits and closed the pocket and glued it to the card base.
    • To finish off this card I then added the front sea life to the bottom of the card. The "sand" hides most of the shaker bit until it is shaken.

    These next, bonus cards were created using the same process as the first one. The backgrounds however were the result of spraying down each of the layers of the stencils used to make the previous card. As you can see this next card uses the top layer of the stencil. When you spray the stencil down the results create a water-colored background look. TIP: place a paper towel under the stencil before you spray the water. Make sure the stencil is saturated to give you solid lines. Remove the paper towel and then press the cardstock panel into the stencil. Avoid moving the cardstock for a clean transfer. Allow to dry.

    For the next few cards, I used the new Lovely Layers: Seashore Dies. The frameless shaker was created by simply wrapping the backgrounds and filling the pocket with Bokeh Lights Confetti.

    To the front of the shaker, the "sand" was created from a torn piece of kraft cardstock and then various Colors of Copic Dots were added to the sand. The shells from the Lovely Layers: Seashore Dies were ink blended and then glued together using foam dots for dimension.

    For the sentiments, I used white pigment ink to stamp out the sentiments from Seas The Day and then heat set them using white embossing powder. I then used the coordinating dies Seas The Day Dies.

    I love these cards sooooo much! The shaker bits remind me of the foam in the ocean waves.
