Hello everyone! Are you all enjoying your summer? I am going stir crazy because it is so HOT where I live and with the current “situation” all over the world, the only way I can enjoy the beach and see sea creatures is making a card! I am back today for Newton’s Nook Designs with some summer-themed cards, showcasing the Tranquil Tides stamp set and dies along with the land borders die and Circle Frames Die set.
To create this first card, I stamped the images using my Spectrum Noir Harmony Quick Dry Dye inks. I used the coordinating die to die-cut the images.
I randomly stamped more images on an A2 size card panel to fill in the spaces.
I used the hill from the Land Border die set to die-cut two wavy panels and adhered them onto the card with foam adhesive for added dimension. I added the rest of the images on the card with either foam or liquid adhesive.
Lastly, I stamped my sentiment on the card with Versafine Onyx black ink and adhered the Sparkling Clear Droplets for added texture. Don’t they look like bubbles? Here’s another look at the card:
For my second card below, I went for a simple nautical design. I stamped the images using the same Spectrum Noir Harmony Quick Dry Dye inks.
I used the smallest circle from the Circle Frames Die Set to die-cut the stamped image and foam mounted this piece on the card. I stamped the sentiment a few times with Versafine Onyx black ink to make it stand out a little and give it more texture.
I finished my design by adding two black strips and using my black gel pen, I dotted them on each crab’s eyes. I adhered this panel on an A2 size card base.
I hope you like my cards today and got inspired. The supplies I use are listed and linked below.
