For this blue surfboards background, I laid the first stencil, surfboard shape only, on an A2 watercolour paper panel in secure, applied Tumbled Glass Distress ink using blending brush. I changed the second stencil, detailed one, on the same place, applied Mermaid Lagoon & Crushed Olive Distress inks. As you know, Distress inks react with water so, I added water drops all over the panel for the effect of splashing water in the beach. ;) For the sentiment, I used the Summer Drinks set.
I die cut the waves from kraft & watercolour paper using the new Stitched Waves die set. With 3 watercolour die cuts, I ink blended them with Mermaid Lagoon & Faded Jeans Distress inks. I mounted all waves onto A2 card base as shown in the picture, then tucked coloured critters in between the waves. Making summer cards are so much fun!
Hello crafty friends, happy weekend! Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Rainbows Release Blog Hop. I’m so delighted to be a part of this amazing blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Keisha Charles’s blog you are on the right track.
For this card, I used the Be A Mermaid set & the Scallop Borders dies. I die cut several waves from coloured cardstock (see the supply list below) in (kind of) rainbow order using the largest scallop borders in the Scallop Borders die set. I then stamped & Copic coloured two beautiful mermaid tails from the Be A Mermaid set. I die cut them with the matching dies. I put all elements as shown in the picture onto 2.75 X 5.5″ white panel using double-sided tape.
For my second 3D card. I made a rainbow coloured background using some Distress Oxide ink – I used the Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber, Broken China and Wilted Violet to blend the panel. I then dry embossed the panel with the Roseville Bouquet embossing folder, took out the colours from flower areas. I added rainbow & sentiment on the bottom of the panel.
We can flatten the 3D card and put it in an A2 sized envelope!

For the centre of the card, I added pinkish hydrangea using Hydrangea Petals die – sadly, it’s retired so if you don’t have, you can use any other flower dies.
I die cut several petals from watercolour paper, blended on each petal with Worn Lipstick Distress ink, then gently brushed them with water as shown in the picture. For the pale yellow leaves, I used the detailed leaf die in the Detailed Rose die set. I added pink jewels on the centre of each petals after assembling flower.
