Good Morning and Happy Thursday fellow crafters! Katie here from 2CrafyKaties to share with you a card using Sunny Studio Stamps “Summer Picnic” and Echo Park’s 6x6 “Good Day Sunshine” paper pad! This month’s theme uses products that focus on celebrating the outdoors, nature, camping, and being under the stars!
Here is what I created:
I love sketches! I have a few favorites that I check out every week. As I was getting ready to create this card, I had no idea what I was going to make. Sketches to the rescue! I started (and finished) with Sketch Saturday #572!
For this project, I pulled all the pattern paper out and grabbed a few card sketches for inspiration. It was a bit of a challenge using ONLY the paper and frames/tags pack, but I am really happy with the outcome.
I had so much fun with this collection! These cards will be perfect for children and adults!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy and get inspired!
Good Morning and Happy Thursday! Katie here (yes, again. I made extra cards when I was creating this card and a DT sister needed me to step in to fill her spot yesterday.) from 2CrafyKaties to share with you a card using Newton’s Nook Designs “Lake Advice” stamp set & Echo Park Paper “Good Day Sunshine” 6×6 paper pad!
These cards were
inspired by video that Jennifer McGuire posted about a week ago. I used my Gina K 4”x 4” wreath builder template with the Ranger Distress Oxide inks and stenciled the corners of the cards. Next, I cut I cut 4.25”x 8” cardstock for my
card base. I LOVE this technique that
Jennifer shared with us in her video. I
am looking forward to using this technique in the future.
Hey, everyone it’s Lynnea! I have another under the sea themed card for you using fun products you can grab in the Scrapping for Less shop! This time I’m making a super fun shaker card! And there’s a video!
I LOVE the My Favorite Things Ocean View Porthole die and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make a shaker! My shaker is quite simple, but for a step by step tutorial make sure you watch my video below! I started by picking out some of my favorite papers from the Echo Park Vitamin Sea paper pack. I wanted to keep the patterns masculine. I always have a shortage of cards for guys in my stash and these papers and stamps are perfect for guys!
Once I picked out my papers I die cut the waves patterned paper with the Ocean View Porthole die – you could just use a circle die, but I wanted to make sure that my window was perfectly sized, so I just used the die. I adhered some acetate to the back of my waves paper and used foam tape to make a circular “well” at the back of my patterned paper and filled it up with sequins and little anchor pieces. I used another piece of patterned paper to seal up my shaker. I die cut the Ocean View Porthole die three times from heavy white cardstock and stacked them together for dimension and then glued them onto the front of my acetate.
To finish off my card I stamped the cute little shark and sentiment from the La-La Land Crafts Jaws Because stamp set. I colored him up with alcohol markers and used a dotting technique for texture. I trimmed him out and added him to the front of my shaker with the sentiment strip. That’s it! Super simple and super cute!
Hey, everyone! It’s Lynnea! Are you ever just in the mood to stamp? No frills, no fuss – just stamping? I LOVE silhouette stamps for this reason! And today I have a trio of cards that took me no time at all to make, but I was able to spice them up a bit with some multi color inking! And I have a video at the end of this post to show you just what I mean!
I used the Vitamin Sea stamp set from Echo Park for each card in the set, but I changed up the images and colors to make them interesting!
You KNOW I just HAD to make a yellow submarine! Haha! I started each card with a gray sentiment. I think gray is an underrated color for sentiments. I frequently find myself reaching for black for sentiments, but the gray makes an impact in its own way, too! To add some dimension to my stamping I started by stamping the submarine with a yellow ink using my MISTI. Without moving the stamp I inked up the bottom portion of the submarine with a darker yellow ink and used a towel to dab away some of the ink so there wouldn’t be a harsh line of ink. I did the same thing with the crab using two colors of red ink.
I repeated the same process for my second card. I stamped my sentiment first in the center of my card using gray ink. Welllll …. I tried to stamp it in the center. I was about a quarter of an inch to the right of center haha! I lined up the fish with the sentiment and stamped a light orange first and then a dark ink second using a towel to dab off some ink to create a more seamless “blend” of ink. Once all my stamping was done I chopped off a quarter of an inch from the left of my card so that the images would appear centered. That makes this card 4 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches tall. I kind of like it!
I decided to do three colors of ink for my last card. I used a light pink for the body of the jellyfish, blue for the middle, and ending with some lavender at the bottom of the tentacles. I made sure to use a towel and dab away ink before each stamping. Be sure to watch the video below to see my multi inking technique!
Crystal here with a trio of cards using Lawn Fawn’s Lovable Legends stamp set! I thought it might be fun to share a trio of cards starting with a simple design and then building from that design to a slightly more involved card design.
My first card started with a simple stenciled background using the Echo Park Good Vibes Stripe stencil along with the Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink that I blended over the stencil. Once my background was done, I die cut it with a wonky rectangle die. I then cut a 1″ strip of the beautiful Watercolor Foil paper from Pink & Main and fussy cut the little flag end on one side. I adhered it to the panel and then trimmed off the excess.
I stamped the super cute sentiment directly on the panel and then adhered the entire panel to a white card base. I stamped the bigfoot character three times and decided for my card design… he’d be a cute yeti so I colored him very simply with the following Copic markers ~ N0, N1, N2, B0000, B00, Colorless Blender. I fussy cut my cute yeti and popped him up on the card.
So that is my first card design… pretty simple, right?! But still adorable!!
For my next card, to add a little somethin’ somethin’ and bring it up a step from simple, I decided to blend the background using distress oxide inks. I used Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. I then blended Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink over the same Good Vibes Stripe stencil that I used on the first card. I love the subtle stripes it made on the background! I die cut the panel with the same wonky rectangle die and adhered it directly on a white card base. I adhered a strip of the Watercolor Foil paper just like the first card, but this time I stamped the sentiments on scraps of white card stock. I used a banner die to cut out the ‘Have An’ sentiment and fussy cut the ‘Unbelievable Birthday’. I adhered both sentiments directly to the card. I popped up the cute yeti and to finish off this card I added a couple of trees that I stamped from the same set using green inks in my stash. I love how the Watercolor Foil paper breaks up the strips of the background and the foil in the paper adds a pretty shine for interest.
Are you ready for the third and final card… ?!
Whatcha think?! I’m a little partial to the background on this one because I love splatter!! I created the background the very same as the second card, but I added water and white acrylic paint splatters. I adhered the strip of Watercolor Foil paper and the top sentiment directly to the card, but I popped up the bottom sentiment using foam tape. I adhered more trees to surround Mr. Yeti… huh, just decided to name him… LOL! I also popped up the two trees on the far right. My final touch to finish this card was to add some random dots to the trees using a white gel pen… almost like snow falling on the trees from the splatter in the background.
Here’s a picture showing all of the cards together. I had a bunch of fun making these cards to share with you… I hope that you’ve enjoyed seeing the different steps in adding interest and dimension to the cards! I hope this inspires you to try different levels of cardmaking!!
For this first card I stamped out my images, cut them and colored using Alcohol Markers. I decided then to use the Lawn Fawn Shadowbox Die set and create a fun card. I used GinaK Amalgam Ink to stamp my images as I knew I would be using the alcohol markers, and ScraPerfect “Best Glue Ever” to adhere my images within the card.
This card was so easy to making using the Gina K Designs Wreath Builder. I used the small images from the Spring Showers stamp set and repeatedly stamped using the wreath builder and my Tim Holtz stamp platform. I colored the images using my alcohol markers, cut 2 circles using a set of dies from my stash and stamped the Hello Spring sentiment using GinaK Amalgam ink. I used foam to pop up the sentiment panel, ScraPerfect glue to adhere my layers together and with that my second project was complete.
