Fun with Tans & Teals


Hello Design Junkies!

Today’s card features the wonderful Zen Circles background stamp and the beautifully detailed King Fisher stamp.  The zen circles background does all of the creative work for you - you just color!
So grab all of your tan and brown markers plus a couple of teal markers and get to coloring. I also used the teals on the king fisher, plus some orange for some of the feathers and dots on the card.  

I hope this quick card color/stamp combo brings you a little inspiration today.  

Happy Crafting!   AJ

The Answer

 Hello Junkies ( Chris here)

I love when these large silhouette stamps.  They make for very easy cards.  But most importantly.  They make for STUNNING cards.   I experimented here with four different ways to make backgrounds.  Then I used versa clair ink to stamp the Palm Tree Paradise stamp on top for a different beachy effects.   

Backgrounds

#1- is patterned paper (yep... how easy is that!)

#2-Dye Ink Sprays (check out Technique Junkies shop she has a bunch of them in stock)

#3- Scribble Sticks.  These are really easy to use and they make fun watercolor backgrounds

#4- Floating Alcohol inks - you can see how I did this in this video

Hang 10 and Learn To Surf

 

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday!  Even though I have never surfed in my life, I love to watch the surfers at the beach here.  And, surfing is huge here in Brasil.  When I saw the new Hang 10 stamp I knew that I would love to color all those boards and, it would be perfect to use with the Learn to Surf stamp.  

So, let's go make a card.  

  • First, I stamped Hang 10 on white cardstock and used my Scan N Cut to cut the surfboards with a small border.  You can also fussy cut then if that is your thing.  
  • I colored in a few of them and then applied glossy accents to each surfboard so they would have a glossy when dry.  Then I set them aside to dry for a few hours. 
  • While they were drying, I made a top-folding card using blue cardstock.
  • I die-cut a piece of light blue cardstock using a 4" x 5.25" stitched rectangle die, embossed it with the Waves 3D Embossing Folder from Memory Box, and adhered it to the card front.
  • I stamped Learn to Surf on white cardstock, die-cut it with a rectangle die, layered it on a piece of blue cardstock, adhered a piece of fun foam to the back, and then adhered it to the card front higher up to make room for the surfboards.
  • I adhered the surfboards to the bottom of the sentiment using wet glue and foam squares.  
  • Lastly, I die-cut another piece of white cardstock using the 4" x 5.25" stitched rectangle die and adhered this to the inside for a message.  
Done!

I really love this card if I do say so myself.  LOL.  The glossy accents on the surfboards really make them pop.  What do you think?  I'd love to know...leave a comment below! 

If you want a more detailed step-by-step, with photos, on how to make this card, head over to my personal blog.  Just click HERE if you want to see that.  

Until next time...

Hugs from Brasil.
