Hello crafty friends!
I love how easy it is to make a card using these beautiful papers for your background! They are so beautiful and all I needed to do was run them through the Big Shot with a fun die to create my background. For the cards I’m sharing today, I used the Stitched Circle Plate Background die by Gina Marie Designs. I die cut it four times… twice for the two patterned papers and then with white card stock and kraft card stock.
Once I had that done, I set it aside and stamped my sea creatures… oh my goodness… this set of sea creatures just might be my favorite!! The turtle… love! And that seahorse… adore!! I sure had a blast coloring all the images!!
I used the following Copic markers to color the images:
Turtle ~ G12, G24, G28, BG10, BG23
Whale ~ B21, B23, B26, T1
Clam ~ RV63, RV91, N0, N1, N3, R00
Seahorse ~ G12, G24, YG01
Jellyfish ~ RV91, V04, V12
Octopus ~ V04, BV000, BV00, BV04, BV13
Starfish ~ YR15, YR16, R12
Shark ~ N0, N1, N3
Seaweed ~ YG01, YG23
Coral ~ R12, R22
Once I had them all colored, I fussy cut them out as close to the black line as possible and then colored the edges with my Memento tuxedo black marker. That’s a great way to make the edges look nice and clean. And then the fun part of building my scenes… so fun! On both cards, I wanted a creature to look like he was swimming through the circle so I used the whale on my first card and the shark on the second. I think it gives dimension to the card even though all the layers are adhered together. Yup… you read that right. I didn’t pop up any of the images!! Lol!
But I did pop up the sentiments!!! I just love how these turned out! I hope I’ve inspired you to create a fun scene using pretty papers and cute stamps! Both items I’ve featured today are in stock in the SFL shop!!
Thanks so much for taking the time to check out my blog!
See ya next time.
Hi everyone, it’s Stacy today up on the SFL blog.
Today I am sharing a card I made featuring the Give Thanks stamp set from Concord & 9th. I also recorded a process video showing it being made, which you’ll find below. This was the first time I have ever used my new Distress Oxide inks. Boy was everyone right! They blend flawlessly on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I’m definitely going to be using these more often. I didn’t really use the regular Distress inks much only because I wasn’t very good at getting a good blend.
I also used my brand new Brother Scan n Cut machine. I can’t believe I was on the fence for buying it. I’m certainly kicking myself now. It is the coolest and easiest for cutting out stamped images. No more fussy cutting for this chick. (I despised fussy cutting!)
Enjoy the video.

Hi, Stacy here with a super “pineapple sweet” set of cards. I thought I would make some cards that would be perfect for telling that special someone how much they mean to you.
I used Lawn Fawn’s Aloha mini stamp and die set. The Papers are from Doodlebug. The oval, scallop oval, and ribbon tag dies are from Spellbinders. The Stitched Rectangle dies are from Gina Marie Designs. I used Glimmer Glitz paper from DCWV. I colored in the sweet little images with my copic markers. I also used white seam binding to attach the sentiment tag to the card.
