Sea you soon

I’m so in love with July’s Animal House Stamps from Technique Tuesday. These shells were so easy to colour, it made for 2 very quick cards that gives me those summer vibes. The set also has many variations of shells which makes it easy to change up your layout. For my 2 cards I picked out my favourite shells, did a slightly different layout for both but kept the cards similar in style.

To make the cards I did a simple stencilled Background 2/3rd of the way down my white card panel. I ripped that purple tape (I always forget the name of it) like masking tape. Overlaying pieces of ripped up tape starting towards the bottom of the sky I created a band across the panel. Left a gap then made another band. I then pressed my embossing pad onto the white space in the gap and heat set sand like embossing powder. I trimmed each side down on the panel. (Just eyeballed)

I added a blue polka dot panel to a white card base and added the sky and embossed panel on top. I finished the card with the shells attached with foam tape.

My sentiment was stamped on the white space on the top panel.

The pink sea shell card I used the same technique with the tape but made only one strip and embossed the entire bottom of the panel. I stencilled the background with the same polka dot stencil and filled in the space with the smaller stamps in the set and small Copic marker dots.

I Ink blended a soft blue on top of where the embossing powder ended and attached my shells with foam tape.
