I decided to make three cards with one set again. This time I choose the Seaside Seagulls stamp set from My Favorite Things.
For the first card (bottom left card) I started by using the Cloud stencil from MFT. I didn't create clouds, I made waves with them. I used four different Distress Ink colors. From top to bottom I used: Thumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire. Above the waves, I wanted to create rays of sunlight. I used the Radiating Rays stencil from MFT and applied Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink onto the paper.
I colored te seagulls (I used the same colors on all cards) and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Seagulls: C0 - C2
Beaks: Y15 - Y17
Pole: E57 - E29
I fussy cut the images. I wanted to create some wave slots, to put the seagulls in. I used the Ocean Wave Accents from Lawn Fawn. I added the seagulls onto the card. I heat embossed the sentiment with White embossing powder from Ranger, onto a piece of Blue Jay cardstock. I adhered the panel onto a Mermaid cardbase.
For card two (bottom right card) is used the Herringbone Brick stencil from MFT. I applied Thumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Ink onto the paper. I then die cut three squares, with the Ouside In Stitched Square Stackables from Lawn Fawn. For the background, the part you can see through the squares, I applied Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink to the paper.
I colored the seagulls and fussy cut them. I added everything together and heat embossed the sentiment. I added the panel onto a Blue Jay cardbase.
For the final card (top card) I kept it really simple. I took a piece of watercolor cardstock and die cut a square with the Outside In Stitched Square Stackables. For the inside part, I took the Cloud stencil again and applied two Distress Inks onto it. I used Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire, again to make waves. I left the sky white. For the outside part, I only used Squeezed Lemonade and made it darker on the bottom and lighter towards the top.
I die cut another wave, with the Ocean Wave Accents. I colored the image and fussy cut it. I assembled the card and added the heat embossed sentiment. I added the panel onto a Blue Jay cardbase. And done are all three my cards.
I made three very different cards, but kept the same color pallette and theme. I'm so in love with these stamps, really easy to create pretty cards with.
