It's time for my weekly video series,It's In The Details, for the Waffle Flower Inspiration Team. Every Friday I will share a new video featuring amazing Waffle Flower Stamps and Dies. (I'm a little late sharing this as I had so many new cards and projects last week I thought I'd wait a few days before sharing this here).
Get the most from your stamp designs by taking non-holiday themed stamp sets and adding holiday accessories to the images for one-of-a-kind greetings! The adorable sea turtles from Shellebrate are shell-ebrating Christmas with this underwater holiday design! With gift packages and candy canes intermixed with the seaweed and a santa hat on the larger of the two turtles, these critters are ready for the holiday season! Layered dimensional frames created with Lacy Layers and Lacy Layers 2 Dies frame up the aquarium nicely and the New Fish In Pond Ink is the perfect color for inking up the “water” for the scene.
I created the frame for my underwater scene with dies from both Lacy Layers and Lacy Layers 2 die cut from both white and black cardstock. I inked up the "inside" white rectangle with New Fish In Pond Ink and a Dauber Duo. A greeting from the Stocking Stamp Set was stamped long the bottom edge of the black frame using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
The turtles and seaweed from the Shellebrate Stamp Set and the santa hat, candy canes and gifts from the Stocking Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored in with Copic Markers. I die cut the images with the coordinating Shellebrate and Stocking dies.
The images were adhered to the "underwater" inked scalloped rectangle, trimming excess off the edges as necessary. Using the outside frames as a guide, I adhered the scene to a side fold card base and then used foam adhesive to adhere the wide black frame and tiny, tiny white frame together before adhering to the card base. To make the tiny, tiny frame "pop", I die cut the frame again from white glitter cardstock and adhered it on top of the plain white one.
I finished the card by stamping bubbles from the Shellebrate Stamp Set with New Fish In Pond Ink and filling in with Glossy Accents and adding a puffy trim and ball to the santa hat with the Marvy Snow Marker.
