You're in for a treat today as I have 2 cards to share. Why 2? Because I have been making a bunch of cards for when I head to Wyoming in a couple weeks and I have 5 birthdays to celebrate. Plus I got 4 Mother's Day cards and 1 birthday card already mailed. Whew! Anyway, these 2 cards are for our grandson and a great grandson.
I had fun making this card. I did lots of paper piecing and embossing.
I stamped the fun submarine from the An Adventure ATS stamp on 3 new neon papers available July 1. They are Orange Rave, Sour Lemon, and Cosmic Grape. I embossed the Beach Breeze back layer with the Above The Clouds embossing folder. I added a couple Whip Cream clouds from the Cloud Dreams die set. I die cut the Cool Pool layers with the Border Basics die set (hopefully in the new catalog) and embossed with the Yummy Dots embossing folder. I added dots of Glaze to some of the raised dots to look more like bubbles. A few elements from the Rainbow Dots (hopefully in the new catalog) and some Rhinestones and I'm almost done. I did sponge some Pool Play ink on the cloud edges and used foam squares to raise 1 cloud and the submarine before adhering all to a Whip Cream card base. All elements of the submarine were stamped with Black Licorice ink.
I based this on a card posted in the FSJ website gallery. The only similarities are the background words (I used different ones and angled them), the Snapshot Frame and the dinosaur. I used the Dino-Mite! set and Snapshot Frames die set.
I used a variety of card stocks: Pineapple Smoothie, Citrus Cooler, Pool Play, Oatmeal Cookie, and Whip Cream. Two inks were used, Black Licorice and Citrus Cooler. I colored with Copic markers and added some little black rhinestones from my stash. I used foam squares to raise the frame and the dinosaur.
Both little guys getting these cards will be turning 1 so I doubt they'll enjoy these until they get older. Hopefully their moms are saving the cards.
