Christy’s Clever Under the Sea Card!

Hey friends! It’s Christy here today with another card for our Little Things challenge. This one is so fun for me because I love all the little accessory images and mini sets that Lawn Fawn comes out with, and now is the perfect time to let them shine!

I started by stamping out my images from Seahorsin’ Around, Keep on Swimming, Mermaid for You, and Party Animal. I chose some bright, fun colors of Copics to color them with, limiting my color palette to really unify the scene. I also stamped out some coral with Plastic Flamingo ink, and sea grasses with Jalapeño and Noble Fir. Then I used the matching dies to cut out all the images.

To help the colors pop even more, I created a white focal panel, trimming it down with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables and die-cut three bubble windows with the Circle Stackables.

I popped the focal panel up with foam tape on my Mermaid card base, then adhered my images with a combination of foam tape and liquid glue. I also stamped a couple bubbles on the background with Peacock ink and finished off the inside with that as well. To complete the card, I added a sentiment strip that I white heat embossed on Black Licorice cardstock, and dabbed on a little Stickles glitter glue to bring the bling.

I also created a video tutorial for you, so you can watch how this card came together on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty!

This is a 3 week challenge so you still have time to enter and let those Little Things shine! We can’t wait to see what you create! Click HERE to join the fun!

Jessica’s Seahorsin’ Around Aquatic Scene!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Little Things challenge! Today I decided to use the cute little seahorse mini set, Seahorsin’ Around to create a magical aquatic scene!

To start I stamped the seahorses and heart with black Versafine ink and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. Then I colored them with Copic markers and die-cut them with the coordinating dies. I also added a few accents with a white gel pen. I stamped the sentiment onto Black Licorice cardstock with Clear Embossing Ink and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I trimmed it down to a fishtail flag.

Next I created my background. I’ve been trying different alcohol ink techniques this summer to get different textures and dimensions and I thought this piece was perfect for waves. I used Copic refills in BG10, BG11, and B66 along with brass metallic ink to create the background and added bubble splatters with isopropyl alcohol. I finished the panel by adding a little liquid glue along the bottom and pressing gold leaf into the glue. Once the glue dried I brushed off the excess flakes. I adhered my sentiment and heart with liquid glue and then adhered my seahorses with foam mounting tape for a little extra dimension! I finished the card by adding a little Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle to the seahorses and heart.

And that’s it! You have two more weeks to get crafty for our Little Things challenge and I can’t wait to see how the little things inspire you! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!
