Oh Manatee...Or Maybe Coffee?

September 10, 2018

Hi Everyone! It's Cathy here with a card using the 
 playful Oh Manatee stamp set. These guys have so much personality. 
Who doesn't love a big huggable manatee?!
 



I created a little habitat for him by die-cutting the background pieces and airbrushing a blue-green gradient with Copics. The Avery Elle waves die that I've used here is quite intricate, so it's easier to ink or airbrush the cardstock before die-cutting.
 
I've cut a few areas out of the waves background piece for open space to stamp the sentiments.
I colored all of the images from this stamp set with Copics and also used the coordinating dies to this set.
 
To bring the manatee up out of the scene just a bit and give him the appearance of floating along in the seaweed, I adhered him with dimensional foam tape.
 
Hope you enjoyed and happy crafting!
See you soon!
 
Cathy

I wanted a softer look for this card so rather then stamping with black ink onto white paper, I used gray...

Wishing You a Very Happy Easter

March 22, 2019

Happy Friday! It's finally Spring!! Easter will be here soon and I just love this bunny from the new Easter Bunnies stamp set.

First, I created a background for the bunny by die-cutting a large egg and inking a few clouds and grass with Distress Inks.

For a little extra interest, I adhered the egg to a piece of white cardstock slightly overlapping the edge and then die-cut using a stitched rectangle...
