"Waving" Hello

Hey guys, thanks for stopping by. Being that we are in the middle of summer, I just needed more beach and ocean cards. So here we go. I used a bunch of different companies products for this card. You don't have to stick with just one stamp set or die cut when making a card. Mix it up, it really opens the door for some really fantastic cards.

The paper I used for this card is Bristol Smooth Card Stock . I like this card stock when I am going to blend my Distress Oxide Inks, they blend so smooth. The circle frames I used are from Pink and Main (I just love the color of the dies). The waves are Lawn Fawn Wave Border dies. The Hello sentiment die is from Spellbinders, Die of the month for May.

The colors of card stock I used was Simon Says Stamp Peacock (that is the darker color) and the other teal color is from my stash. I used regular white card stock for the hello die cut because, I will just be embossing on it.

I used the circle die cuts and cut the frame out of the Peacock Teal card stock. Using the smaller die cut circle I cut a circle from the Bristol Smooth card stock, that is what I will be inking with the Distress Oxide Inks.

I used the Mini Ink Blending tool and made a small circle for the (sun) using Squeezed Lemonade distress oxide ink, I then cut a piece of masking paper from Simon Says Stamp using the smallest circle from the die cut circles. I placed it over the "sun" and then continued to ink with more squeezed lemonade and abandoned coral distress oxide inks.

Here is what it looks like with the mask removed.

I colored the palm tree from Mama Elephant Summer Days stamp and die set. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, I did the no line coloring for this project. I added some white highlights to the palm tree and coconuts with a white Gelly Roll Pen.

I adhered the waves with Tombow Mono Dots Adhesive. I spritzed the background with Imagine Sheer Shimmer craft spray in Sparkle because, you just have to have sparkle. I embossed the "hello" sentiment with the sand embossing powder from the Hero Arts June card kit. I adhered that and trimmed off the excess paper.

I used the clouds from the Hero Arts June Card Kit and stamped that with a white pigment ink multiple times to get a pretty dark coverage. I positioned the palm tree and adhered that and trimmed of the overhang.

I adhered the center piece with my tape runner, and then using one layer of foam, I adhered the frame. This card really was super simple to make and a ton of fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope this inspired you in some way. Have a wonderful week.
