Birthday Fishes

Hi there,

I created this fish shaker card for the Stamping-Fairies Facebook Group:

  • build the shaker element from some frames layered on top of each and a piece of acetate
  • add some leaves cut with the help of two of the dies from the Sizzix Funky Floral #2 set between the acetate sheet and the top frame
  • add some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter to the top frame
  • cut out a background from watercolor paper and stamp some fish and plants from the My Favorite Things Gill Friends set with Versafine Clair Morning Mist
  • color the images and the background with Faber-Castell Albrecht-Dürer pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • add some waves using the My Favorite Things Make Waves stencil and Distress Ink Broken China
  • fill the shaker element with Distress Embossing Powder Old Paper
  • stamp the sentiment from the same set with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder


I hope you got inspired.

Hugs,

Happy Birthday

Hi there,

we are starting a new Challenge over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog and this time it is all about the Blackboard Number and Letters:

  • cut out a stitched panel from watercolor paper using one of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangles
  • create a gradient background using Schmincke Horadam watercolors
  • cut out the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blackboard Numbers from that panel and set it aside
  • cut out a matching panel and cover it with Elizabeth Craft Designs 5'' x 12 '' clear double-sided adhesive
  • remove the release paper an cover the whole panel with Elizabeth Craft Designs Ice Teal Microfine Glitter
  • glue the watercolor panel on top of the glitter panel
  • add a strip of patterned paper and a strip of Elizabeth Craft Designs Soft Finish Cardstock Rich Black to the panel
  • stamp the three smaller gift from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Gift Wrapped set with My Favorite Things Extreme Black and color the images with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers
  • adhere them on top of the strip using some double-sided foam adhesive for extra dimension

The question this month will be:
What Elizabeth Craft Designs die or stamp set would you use together with the Blackboard Alphabet or Blackboard Numbers die sets?

I hope you got inspired.

Hugs,
