CAS Seascape



Hi Again Friends!


I love the sentiments in the Rose Wonder set- the fonts look great with all types of card styles and there is a sentiment for most occasions :-)  

This card will be sent to a gentlemen from our church that has been going through a very tough time battling cancer- our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family for sure....

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge galleries yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous cards and inspiration!!

To create this card:

Mask a square area onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base, ink an acrylic block with an Island Indigo Stampin’ Write Marker, lightly spritz with water and stamp the card front.

Ink the lined Gorgeous Grunge stamp with Mint Macaron Classic Ink and stamp over the acrylic block stamping.

Ink the coral image from By The Tide using Island Indigo Classic Ink and stamp onto the background.

Ink the small splatter stamp from Timeless Textures using Island Indigo Classic Ink and stamp onto the background and add the large splatter from Gorgeous Grunge (also with Island Indigo Classic Ink).

Add the Clear Wink of Stella® to add highlights to the background area.

Ink the sea turtle and jellyfish images with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock, color with Stampin’ Write Markers and an AquaPainter™- Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Island Indigo.

Fussy-cut the images, add Clear Wink of Stella® and set aside.
Stamp the sentiment from Rose Wonder with Tip Top Taupe and mount the fussy-cut images with dimensional foam.

Stamp Sets: Rose Wonder, From Land to Sea, Gorgeous Grunge, Timeless Textures, By the Tide

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Stampin’ Write Markers- Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe; Clear Wink of Stella®

Thanks again for visiting- have a relaxing and safe weekend!

This is stunning Julie! Your sea background is so creative and realistic looking and I love the details you've added along with your fussy cut creatures. Such a gorgeous masculine card and I'm sure will bring joy to your recipient. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week :-)

Just beautiful! The background is amazing and love the turtle too! Actually, I love everything about this card except the fact that I don't have either set to try and re-create this beauty.

Julie, I think the simplicity of your card makes the scene you've created outstanding. Any more additions to the card would have tilted the balance. You've chosen beautiful colours and have used those colours like the artist you are---perfectly. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Amazing artwork, Julie! I'm in awe of it all - but the fussy cutting on the jelly is just incredible. Thank you so much for playing along with this week's color challenge at the Global Design Project.

This is really stunning Julie. I love how you trail elements of your design out of central focus. The impression of texture is amazing as well. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

It just hit me that you fussy-cut that jellyfish! Wow - amazing work, Julie. As always, I love the backgrounds you create; they add so much depth and dimension to your cards. I'm sure the gentlemen who will be the recipient of your card will appreciate not only your caring thoughts, but your artwork, as well. Thanks for joining our Watercooler Wednesday challenge.

This is a beautiful card, Julie, and perfect for the intended recipient. I agree that the Rose Wonder sentiments are so versatile; was just thinking that myself last night, making a masculine card! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

You are so talented! I enjoy all of your cards but this one is my favorite. I have debated about getting this stamp set (I have By the Tide) and this card is giving me good reason to go ahead and get it!!

Julie Gearinger said...

Wow, thanks everyone for taking the time to comment and for all of your encouragement!! Kampin' Karen- the From Land To Sea set is the perfect companion stamp set for By The Tide and I think you will find so many uses for it :-) Thanks again and hugs to all of you!!
