I made an A2 size card or 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 inches, I cut a panel to 5 1/4 X 4 inches for the scene. I made some masks for the images, and I stamped and masked as I went, using Momento Tuxedo Black Ink for stamping the images I was going to color.
I drew in lines for the cabana, horizon, and beach with a pencil before I started ink blending and then colored the images. After I finish coloring and blending I stamped and embossed the sentiment. I added the glossy accents, the Sparkle Pen for the reflection of the sunset on the water. After it dried I adhered the panel to the card base and used a black Zig Marker to outline the wires on the string lights.

Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a few cards using the Pink & Main “Turtley Amazing” stamp set. Be sure to check out the video for all the details HERE!
I colored the images on the last two cards with Studio 71 by Darice alcohol markers. I had heard good reviews on them and decided to pick up a set with 48 markers. Check out the video for my thoughts.
The first card is an A2 size 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 and I used “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide Ink to create the background on a 4 in. square piece of white cardstock. For the stamping I used Hero Arts Charcoal ink and the Gina K “Wreath Builder“. I stamped the sentiment with Brutus Monroe embossing ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I placed the panel on a black card base and finished it off with a few sequins, clear enamel dots, Ranger “Glossy Accents” on the turtle shells, and a Sakura “Black Glaze Pen” on the turtles eyes.
My second card is a 4 1/2 square card. I used all of the small images with the wreath builder to create the background on a 4 in piece of white cardstock. The inks I used were Hero Arts Mulled Wine, Moss, Soft Cantaloupe, and Lawn Fawn Merman. I added two of the turtles I colored. For the card base and sentiment strip I used a burnt orange piece of card stock from my stash. I stamped the sentiment with VeraFine Onyx Black ink and I finished the card by adding glossy accents to the turtle shells and for the eyes the glaze pen.
My final card I used the Scrapping for Less “Water Patterns” 6X6 paper pad to create a background along with a piece of kraft cardstock. I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and I heat embossed it with black embossing powder. I placed the colored images around the background and finished it with glossy accents to the turtle shells, a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen on the small images and for the eyes the glaze pen.
Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a few cards I made using the Pink and Main “Turtley Awesome” stamp set! I made some fun backgrounds from three embossing folders, a stencil, and “Distress Inks” to use with images from the stamp set. Carta Bella Ogee, Darice, and Tim Holtz The images are stamped with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I stamped the sentiments with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and finished off the cards with Glossy Accents, Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen, Nuvo Dream Drops, and a black gel pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I love getting a jump on Christmas cards and this little cutie moved right up to the top of my list. I dug into my Christmas stash and went through some patterned paper. When I saw the green plaid I immediately wanted to use that for her dress. Then I ran into a snafu…have you ever not done a technique in so long that you forget how? That is what happened to me! Embarrassing but in case any of you out there experience this now you know you’re not alone. Thank goodness my friend was hanging out close by and when I mentioned that I really wanted to paper piece her dress but couldn’t she laughingly reminded me how. As soon as she reminded me I felt so silly but we got a good laugh out of it!
using my Tim Holtz stamp platform I stamped the Pure Innocence girl with Lawn Fawn’s Jet Black which is waterproof and alcohol marker safe
I colored her in with my Copic markers and Teresa gave me a tip after I paper pieced her dress that I didn’t know about…she said to take a dark grey marker and color around the dress parts that I paper pieced to soften the edges so that the dress doesn’t look like it’s floating on top of her, brilliant!
the sentiment was stamped in VersaFine since it gives such a crisp look
wanting her shoes to look like patent leather (the shiny ones from my childhood) I covered them in glossy accents
MFT’s Pure Innocence stamps are just that perfect mix of sweet and cute, and I am smitten with them! Now to make more Christmas cards!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my post I hope you get the chance to craft today. A little or a lot just some time for what you want to do. Have a great day!
These puffy stickers are beyond ADORBS!!! Plus they go perfectly with the pattern paper that was chosen for this collection. I don’t want to give too much away but one thing I can say is, “You are going to LOVE this kit!”
So if you haven’t signed up for a monthly subscription (at a fantastic discounted price) then be sure to rush over to the Flavor of the Month page. By signing up for a subscription is the only way to insure that you get a kit. They tend to sell out fast.
Now onto my card. I used my Stitched Circle Dies from Gina Marie Designs to cut out a circle and offset it in the lower righthand corner of my card. I also cut the same circle out of some wavy striped pattern paper from the collection that reminded me of sandy hills on the beach. I glued on some of the sequins that come in the kit and added some Glossy Accents dots to resemble water droplets. I think it turned out super cute! I can’t wait for you to see the kit, so make sure you check back each day to see what the Design Team has done for you with their Sneak Peek projects.
The full reveal of the kit will be this Saturday, June 30th at 12:00 am EST.
We hope to see you then and hop along with us.
