Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Surf's Up

Thanks for stopping by today! It is time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Surf's Up. I hope you get a chance to play along. The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge.


Here my card based on the inspiration photo. The card is created with the new adorable Sea Friends Stamp Set from Pretty Pink Posh


I just love this underwater scene. I started by cutting a piece of watercolor paper from the card front. I stamped the bubbles in white pigment ink and embossed with white embossing powder. Then I used Distress Inks, starting at to bottom with greens and browns and working my ink up the card. Then I misted the paper with water. 


To created the shaker I used the Scallop Circles Dies and cut directly into the card front. Then I adhered clear acetate and foam to form the shaker. I stamped a sentiment from the Sea Friends Stamp Set and dropped in sequins from the new Mermaid Sequins Mix


Here's a closer look at the bottom of the card. The images are colored with Copic Markers and die cut with the Sea Friends Coordinating Dies

Please welcome our newest Guest Designer,
Lenae, SugarGem

Sending Lots of Love with Pretty Pink Posh

Hi Everyone and thanks for stopping by! I have a floral card to share that I created with combination of Pretty Pink Posh Stamps and Dies.


I started by stamping leaves from both the Build A Bloom Stamp Set and the Bold Blooms Stamp Set on Kraft Cardstock and colored the leaves with Copic Markers. Next I cut the bottom edge of the Kraft Cardstock with a border die in the Scallop Borders 2 Dies and a another border from white cardstock. On the Kraft I splattered white paint and sponged the edges with white pigment ink. 


I stamped and colored a variety of flowers from the Bold Blooms Stamp Set, die cut with the Bold Blooms Coordinating Dies, and added the flowers to the card front. The two bees are from the Bee Friends Stamp Set and die cut with the Bee Friends Coordinating Dies. The sentiment is from the Everyday Greetings Stamp Set. I finished off the card with a few Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix
