Happy Friday fawny friends! It’s time for another 1 Stamp, 3 Ways with Tammy! This month you chose On the Beach and Tammy created three amazing card designs to inspire you! She included a special photo tutorial to make your own tiki bar!
Hi friends, Tammy here with another fun 1 Stamp, 3 Ways feature! This month, we are showcasing On the Beach, perfect for Summer or Vacation themed cards! These sweet critters are enjoying the summer months with a beach party…I wish I could join them!!
For my first card, I created a shaped card to look like one of those yummy tropical drinks you get in Hawaii. This smaller sized card will fit perfectly into an A2 envelope.
To begin, I cut the second largest oval, using the Large Stitched Oval Stackables, from Bristol Smooth cardstock. I cut the top portion off to create a straight edge. Next, I lightly applied Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink over the entire oval. I then used very thin washi tape to create a diamond shaped a grid. I added depth by ink blending with Rusty Hinge, Mustard Seed, and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide inks using sponge daubers. Then I splattered some brown acrylic paint, thinned with water, onto the pineapple before removing the washi tape.
Next, I stamped the umbrella from On the Beach and the leaves from Critters in the Jungle, colored with Copic markers, and die cut with the On the Beach and Critters in the Jungle coordinating dies. I made the card base by die cutting a folded piece of white cardstock with the oval used to create the pineapple. I then attached the decorated pineapple to the card base and added some yellow jewels to complete my card.
Tiki Bar Card
This card is an A6 card, measuring 4 ½ X 6 ¼”, and features a custom Tiki Bar that I will show you how to create using Lawn Fawn dies.
Next, I cut a 3” strip and (2) 2” strips from Woodgrain Cardstock. Then I cut one of the die cut rectangles into strips, varying in widths. I inked the edges of all the cut pieced with Walnut ink and assembled the Tiki Bar. Next I glued all the cut strips to the rectangle base, and then attached the 3” strip across the top.
I cut a Grassy Border from Cilantro cardstock, darkening it with Mowed Lawn ink, and attached to the back of the roof. To finish, I attached the 2” strips vertically to the back of the Tiki Bar base and then attached the roof to the strips.
Now that the Tiki Bar is complete, we can finish up our card. I tucked the Tiki Bar underneath the sand and attached using foam tape. Next, I adhered all the colored images and palm trees, using foam tape on some for dimension.
Finally, I stamped my sentiment in Black Licorice Ink along the bottom of my card and attached to a white card base, measuring 4 ½ X 6 ¼”.
