A Pair of Fun Ocean Shell-fie Cards with Ivy

Happy Saturday Friends! Ivy joins us today to share two super cute and fun Ocean Shell-fie cards!

Ivy combined Shadow Box Card and it’s Ocean Add-On to make this adorable pop-up shadow box! She used Pastel Shimmer Cardstock and vellum to cut the box and the layers of waves.

Ivy added a sentiment from Wavy Sayings on a Simple Wavy Banner that was cut from more pastel shimmer cardstock! All of the cute little Ocean Shell-fie critters are water-colored along with the cloud from All the Clouds!

The Shadow Box Card folds flat to fit in a standard size envelope! It makes it so easy to pop in the mail to brighten someone’s day!

This super cute shaker card features Peekaboo Backdrop and more Ocean Shell-fie and Shadow Box Card Ocean Add-On images! Ivy added acetate behind the Peekaboo Backdrop so she could add the ocean critters in front of the shaker element! Keep scrolling below to find out the secret to this clever design!

This fun shaker card has a cool surprise! The confetti and glitter are suspended in hair gel! Ivy added Chunky Glitter and confetti to a cellophane bag then she squeezed in colorless hair gel and squished it all around to evenly distribute everything. The bag is then wrapped over the background piece and taped securely on the back (Ivy used packing tape). Some of the images are placed on the background behind the shaker element!

Thank you so much for sharing this fun Ocean Shell-fie inspiration with us, Ivy!

Renata used Oh Gnome! images to fill this adorable 3D scene! The scene includes some Butterfly Kisses butterflies attached using clear acetate so they appear to be fluttering overhead! She also filled in with pretty flowers from Fairy Friends!

Jenn’s Simple Cards for Everyday Heroes!

Join us for another fantastic Inspiration Week starting this Friday! We will finish shining the spotlight on our Spring 2020 release with lots of great samples and giveaways! We can’t wait!

Jenn is making multiple cards in response to Jennifer McGuire’s call to Stay Home and Make Cards! Jennifer is encouraging us to create simple cards for health care workers, first responders, grocery store employees, etc. It’s a great way to put our cardmaking skills to excellent use to encourage the people working selflessly every day!

Jenn assembled strips of Dandy Day 6×6 papers in a rainbow pattern to create this colorful design! She stamped the sentiments from Big Scripty Words and Simply Sentiments in Hippo ink and added hearts cut from Narwhal cardstock. Quick and easy to put together with a whole lot of heart!

Jenn has a great tip for stamping die cuts when making multiples of the same card! It’s brilliant!

  1. Put some scrap cardstock into your MISTI, and stamp the words you will want to use on your card. Keep this setup. Hold it with your magnet, or some Therm-o-Web Purple Tape.
  2. Die-cut the words you will want to stamp. Overlay the negative on top of the words you stamped on scrap cardstock. Be sure that the alignment is correct. Tape in place.
  3. Place the die-cut words into the negative cardstock.
  4. Stamp your words in whatever colored ink you would like.
    Perfect placement each time!

Thanks so much, Jenn for sharing your beautiful card design and super helpful stamping tip!
