I had a bit of a play with friend of mine the other day & decided that we would play with the great Technique – Background Wash but with a twist!
As I hadn’t had a couple of my favourite sets out for awhile, I thought it was time for “By the Seaside” & “By the Tide” left the shelves & were once again used to create a card. Don’t forget, “By the Seashore” will be retiring at the end of the month & will no longer be available.
I carried the theme through to the inside of the card by stamping the coral image onto a piece of Whisper White Card in Crumb Cake Ink & then stamped a shell image in Calypso Coral.
I decided to create the Birthday Card from a couple of days ago for my Thank You Cards this month with a few slight differences.
I don’t have any of the cards left at this point so I can’t really give you the measurements or a tutorial for that matter.
Again I adhered a piece of Very Vanilla Card to a piece of Transfer Adhesive Sheet prior to running it through the Big Shot using the Striped Scallop Thinlit Die. I carefully peeled the shape away from the Transfer Sheet leaving all the little shapes adhered to the Sheet for another project & adhered to a piece of Very Vanilla Card. This was then adhered to the Base Card – Strawberry Slush.
I run the Thinlit through the Big Shot a couple more times, this time using scraps of Coastal Cabana & Strawberry Slush Card before randomly adhering the shapes to the middle of the scallops.
The “Thank You” is from the “Four You” Stamp Ste, stamped onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Card with Strawberry Slush Ink & cut using the Project Life Cards & Labels Thinlits & adhered to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
My card today is one I saw on Pinterest & thought it would make a lovely Birthday Card for Di who celebrated her Birthday early on in the month.
As I poste the card before writing a tutorial, I will try & remember how I created the card.
I adhered a piece of Coastal Cabana Card to a Transfer Adhesive Sheet, added the Striped Scallop Thinlit to the top & ran it through the Big Shot. This saves you a little bit of time & effort by trying to apply adhesive to the back of the cut out Thinlit as the Transfer Adhesive Sheet has already done it for you.
All you have to do, is carefully remove the cut our Scallop & adhere to a same size of Very Vanilla Card prior to adhering to a Very Vanilla Base Card.
I then proceeded to do the same with scrap pieces of Coastal Cabana & Strawberry Slush Card but adhered them randomly to the Card uses Multi-Purpose Glue or even Snail.
The “Birthday Wishes” from “Four You” Stamp Set was stamped onto scrap Very Vanilla in Strawberry Slush Ink, cut with the Die from Project Life Cards & Labels prior to adhering to top of card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A very easy, but effective card using scraps of the In Colours that are due to retire this year.
