For our projects today, the design team is showcasing Newton’s Perfect Wave and Scuba Newton + coordinating dies:



I started with an A2-size Bristol smooth panel and used my Sunscape stencil and distress oxide ink to add the sun.  I die-cut different shades of blue card stock and used the Sea Borders die set to create the waves.  I also die-cut the Coconut trees and border frame from my stash to use for my scene and ink-blended them with distress oxide inks.


I stamped my image on smooth white card stock and colored him in with my Spectrum Noir Triblend markers.  I die-cut the image using the coordinating die.  I adhered my colored background to my card base and adhered the rest of the die-cuts with foam adhesive for added dimension.



I finished my design by adding glossy accents to Newton’s surfboard and stamped my sentiment on the card.  Here’s a closer look:



For my second card, I stamped and colored my images using my Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut them out.


I used a Sea-border die from my stash to use for my scene. I also ink-blended some Bristol smooth A2-size card stock with some distress oxide inks and sprayed them with water to make it look like bubbles.  I dabbed it with some paper towel, and adhered this piece on my card base.  I adhered the the rest of my elements to the card with foam adhesive to add some dimension and also used some liquid adhesive.



To finish my design, I added some blue enamel dots on the card for added interest and texture and used glossy accents to Newton’s goggles.  Here’s a closer look:



I absolutely LOVE creating “under-the-sea” and beach-themed cards!  You guys will be amazed on how many cute stamp sets we are revealing this week.  I can’t even pick a favorite!

  1. Love all of the detail in the first card – from the beach
    to the sun in the sky. The second card with the
    grotto to swim into is fantastic. thanks for sharing


  2. I love the layering on the first card with that scene and the underwater one is so stinkin cute! Love that die you used with the bubbles very much! Nice work!


  3. Wow, that sea border die is so purr-fect with this new set!! That card is really a stunning design. And I love how the glossy accents makes the surfboard so realistic!


  4. Love the bright & beautiful dimensional scenes on your cards! Love your unique second Card! It really looks like Newton is scuba diving deep below the ocean!


  5. Love the backgrounds and the fun scenes. The surfing and scuba Newton images are so adorable. Great idea to add glossy accents to the surfboard.
