Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a fun card to share with you using the new Under The Sea release. Below are the steps to create your own Beach Scene Card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)
Step 2 – Diecut Adventure Edges (the cloud die) on scrap Cardstock. Place the diecut on the front of the card and apply using a Blender Brush and Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass. Repeat this step until you reach the middle of the card.
Step 3 – Diecut Sea Weed (the sand die) using White Soft Finish Card. Ink it using a Blender Brush and Ink of your choice.
Step 4 – Stamp Splish Splash sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink towards the left bottom of the sand created from Step 3.
Step 5 – Diecut Ocean Edges (x2) and apply ink to the top and fading out. Adhere to card the 2 waves and the sand from Step 3 using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 6 – Diecut Sea Weed (the stones, treasure chest and sea weed). Ink the pieces and assemble the treasure chest using Kids Choice Glue. I used Matte Metallic Cardstock for the treasure chest trims. Adhere the treasure chest, stones and sea weeds to the card front using Kids Choice Glue.
Step 7 – Diecut Sea Shells (crab) using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the pieces and assemble using Kids Choice Glue. Adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue. For added interest apply dots to the eyes using a White Gel Pen.
Step 8 – Diecut Lighthouse (Sea Gulls) x 3 using soft grey Cardstock. Adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue.
This card is great for any occasion you may have forgotten. You can always change the sentiment for a different occasion. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!
Hi there, it’s Tanja here! Today, I would like to show you how to create this Mixed Media Tag using one of Charlene’s wonderful stamp sets.
Step 1: Die Cutting
- cut the larger of the tags from the Planner Essentials 2 set from watercolor paper
Step 2: Stamping, Embossing and Adding Color
- stamp the large feather from the Make a Wish set with Versamark and heat-emboss them with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
- add color with Distress Oxide Inks (Tattered Rose, Abandoned Coral, Seedless Preserves) and a Mini Ink Blending Tool
- mist the tag with water to create extra texture
- ink up the edges with Distress Oxide Ink Black Soot
Step 3: Adding the Sentiment and Finishing Touches
- stamp the sentiment from the same set with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder onto a piece of black cardstock
- cut the sentiment apart and adhere it with clear double-sided adhesive
- dye a piece of seam binding with Distress Oxide Ink Abandoned Coral and thread it through the hole of the tag
I hope you got inspired.

Karen here today from Craftily Yours! I’m excited to be sharing with you some pages I created using the Planner line. These dies and stamps can be used for planning, but I also enjoy using them to document special moments in my life. Today’s post is all about a mighty fine time I had with three wonderful women at the last Scrapbook Expo in my area!
Hi! Diana here with one of my favorite dies to work with –– anything with butterflies! I love the color scheme I ended up with but purple is hard to photograph –– and glitter even more so! But this one is very pretty in real life so I hope you give it a try.
- I started with a light green sheet of cardstock measuring 4.5″ x 6.5″. I used Distress Oxides Lucky Clover and Cracked Pistachio to sponge around the edges and Squeezed Lemonade in the center to give it a sort of glow. I splattered with water and pat dry.
- Die cut the Butterfly Spray out of the top half of the colored cardstock and stamp the You were born with greatness in the bottom left corner of the sheet.
3. With a bigger sheet of purple cardstock, I marked the approximate area behind the butterfly spray and covered that part with double sided adhesive.
4. I then added a mix of Silk Microfine Glitter over the area. I initially wanted just the Amethyst but then lightened it with the Bright Cranberry and Silver Sands glitter. Rub in the glitter and use a Swiffer sheet to wipe off any excess.
5. Adhere the front to the purple sheet and trim if necessary. I then placed it all on a white card base.
Thanks so much for looking! I hope this card signals spring to come –– or 3 feet of snow. Nothing in between, thank you. 🙂

Karen here today from Craftily Yours! Eek! There’s a new release today! So much fun to SEA! It’s MERMAZING! No crab! Ok, yes – there is a crab!

Hello Everyone! It’s EK, and today I am popping in with a non-Valentine’s Valentine’s Day card. I like giving out cards to friends and family on the 14th, but I also like it to look like a card for any other day of the year. Today I am playing around with the negative image of a die cut to create this any-time Valentine’s day card.
Step One: Trim a piece of Dusky Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches. Score and fold the the cardstock to make a 6×6 inch card frame.
Step Two: Using the A Way with Stencils – Flourished Frame stencil, apply it over the card frame and blend in ink. I used Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide.
Step Three: Lift the stencil and lay it down to the side of the original image and blend more ink.
Step Four: Repeat on the opposite side.
Step Five: Die cut the sentiment from the card frame using the You Are Perfect die set from the A With Words Line. I tack down the dies where I want them using a little bit of blue tape.
Step Six: Using a scrap of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock and 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, cover the die cut area of the die cut in the inside of the card frame.
Step Seven: Add the die cut sentiment back into the negative space, tacking it down with some blue tape.
Step Eight: Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere back in the pieces from the die cut. Carefully lift back out the die cut sentiment.
Step Nine: Repeat step 7 and 8 using the other die cut sentiment.
Step Ten: Stamp on heart and flutter images onto the stamp using the Soar Collection stamp set.
Step Eleven: Fill in the hearts with some color. I watercolored ink from a Worn Lipstick Distress Marker.
Step Twelve: Fill in the wing with a contrasting color. I watercolored Black Soot Distress Marker into the wings.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how I created this fun negative effect card.
Let us know in the comments below if you ever play with the negative images of die cuts. Until then, happy crafting!
