Jessica’s Cute and Fishy Back to School Inspiration

Good morning! Jess here with a fishy card for our current Back to School challenge!

I decided to use a school of fish as the basis for my card! I started by stamping the teacher shark and a ton of fish from Duh-Nuh onto a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock. I also stamped a few fish onto a separate piece of white cardstock. Then I stamped the shark and the fish a few times on a stack of full sheet post-it notes and fussy cut them to create masks. I placed a mask over every stamped image to prep it for ink-blending!

Next I used the Hillside, Ocean Wave, and Scene Builder: Bayou stencils to create a background on the stamped panel. I used tumbled glass, peacock feathers, blueprint sketch, and chipped sapphire distress oxide ink for the waves, chipped sapphire for the bayou, and antique linen and tea dye distress oxide ink for the sand. Then I splattered water across the panel and a little watered down gathered twigs and tea dye distress oxide ink across the sand. I dried it with my heat gun and then removed all of the masks!

Then it was time to color! I used Y32, 35, and 38 for the fish and also colored the separately stamped fish before fussy-cutting them. I used neutral grays for the shark. Then I die-cut the sentiment using Finley’s ABCs and Black Licorice cardstock. I adhered the letters across the panel and then added a few of my fussy cut fish in and around the letters. In hindsight I wish I had one more fish to add above the L but we’ll pretend he’s running late today! 😉

Next I stamped the rest of the sentiment from Thanks a Bushel onto Black Licorice cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I trimmed it down to a thin label and adhered it to the card. Finally I used a black glaze pen to define the eyes of the fish and shark and finish the card!

And that’s it! You have one more weekend to get crafty for Lawn Fawnatics Back to School challenge and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

Joyce’s Adorable Card Inspired by Finding Nemo!

Joyce joins us today to share her adorable, underwater scene inspired by Finding Nemo!

Joyce assembled her cast of characters and scenery from Fintastic Friends, You are Sublime, Duh-nuh, Get Well Before ‘n Afters and Mermaid for You!

She used a Stitched Hillside Border for the ocean floor and did some amazing ink blending to create the watery backdrop! Then she white embossed the sentiment from You are Sublime directly on the background!

Thanks so much for sharing with us today, Joyce! Marlin, Nemo and Dory along with all their friends are adorable!
