Hello again, Cheryl here today. I had a lot of fun playing with another of KatScrappiness dies that was just released. I hope you’ll like what I came up with. So here we go!
I started by picking out the green patterned paper. I pulled out a stencil from Echo Park called Birthday Candles Stencil. I have a jar of translucent embossing paste. I laid down the stencil on the paper and used low tack tape to secure, then spread on the paste. Gives a super fun shine and dimension to the paper. I love it! I then cut it using one of KS Stitched Fancy Scalloped Circle dies. I layered that on a circle cut with a KS Double Stitched Circle die. Next I cut the KS Seal from KS Seal with Ball Scene Die Set in grey cardstock and inked the edges. I used clear embossing powder and did several layers over top to give the seal a wet look. Love how it turned out!
Next I cut the beach ball from the same die set and used a few different colors. I brushed on a bit of sparkle with my Clear Overlay Sparkle Marker. I layered it onto a grey circle. Added a sticker for the seals eye and tied on some cute twine. I also used a stamp from KS Interactive Card Instructions stamp set, trimmed it out, and added to the edge of the beach ball. Attached a Mini Action Wobbler to the bottom. Scattered a few sequins from KS Neon Summer Sequin Mix and stars from Rose Sparkle Glitter Sequin Mix and then set this element aside.
I picked out a patterned paper from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Paper Pad and cut it with a KS Double Stitched Rectangle Die. I added that to an A2 sized card base. I pulled out two Lawn Fawn stamp sets. Wild For You and Elphie Selfie stamp sets to stamp my sentiment. I did part on a turquoise strip and part on velum. I wrapped the edges of the velum around and taped on the backside. And I added the turquoise strip with foam tape. I then finished off the card by adding on the main element right to the front with liquid glue. It hung over a bit and I trimmed off the overhang.
And that’s it. I think it turned out nice. I love how the beach ball “wobbles” on top of the seals nose. Like he’s playing with it and having fun. I hope you got a bit of inspiration today and will pull out your supplies. And should you need any new things or want to purchase what I’ve used, head to the Kat Scrappiness Store and check out her inventory. A great place to shop, for sure!
