You're Sublime - 5th and final card The camper "Follow Your Heart"

If you've been following me, you know that I've made a set of 5 cards that are 4 by 4" in size.  Each card depicts one of the images of the stamp set "You're Sublime".  The first card showed a cute frog (does everyone love frogs these days?) click here ; the second a cart full of flowers click here         the third a submarine click here and the fourth a lobster click here 

Today is the final card of this "You're Sublime" series.

  • Card #5 shows a camper.  Just attach it to a car and away you go!  Wouldn't you like to follow your heart in this camper?

  • Again, the colour scheme is similar to the other cards.
Here are the 5 cards together, along with the decorated box. Because the cards are an odd size, there are no premade envelopes for them.  Thank goodness for the envelope punch board.

You're Sublime Card 4 Have a Snappy Day

This is the fourth card of a boxed five card set of 4 by 4 cards.  The first card feature a delightful frog click here; the second card showed a cart full of flowers click here ; the third a submarine click here
The lobster in today's card is pretty innocent looking, but beware of there claws, and those yellow eyes make it really spooky. However, he does have a smile on his face.
Lobsters are quite a delicassy, but I am not fond of that fodder - which is totally contradictory as I come from a seafaring country.  Sea food is not my forte.  But back to the card.

  • This time the DSP (retired) picks up the colour of the lobster, and the benotched strip of cardstock is now Calypso Coral, again keeping with the colour scheme of the 5 cards.
Tomorrow the final reveal.  Stay tuned.

Congrats - From Land to Sea Try Stampin on Tuesday #276

The hot spell has finally broken and it looks like there might be some rain (at last).  But looking forward to the long weekend, the weather is going to be perfect for my craft show at Stoney Lake.

The card for the sketch challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday has a definite nautical feel.  I use the stamp set "From Land to Sea" and I feature the turtle.

  • The background of the art piece was created by sponging 3 colours on a piece of Whisper White paper. - Night of Navy, Dapper Denim, Marina Mist.  After cutting it to size, the edges were sponged with Night of Navy.
  • The image needed some sea grass, so I used the meadow grass from "In the Meadow" and stamped it in the lower left.
  • One turtle was coloured, cut out and set aside.  But because I like to use the rule of "3's" I stamped two other turtles in the background.  I wanted to make it look like they were in the distance, so I stamped off twice before stamping on the art piece.  Look carefully and you will see them.  Perhaps in the close up below they can be seen better.

    The single turtle was coloured with a blender pen and ink pads, cut out, the edges sponged, and then adhered to the art piece using tombo glue. 

    Versa mark was applied to the entire art piece and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

    It was matted with Old Olive cardstock, and this unit was attached to the card front using dimensionals.

    The card base is Dapper Denim, layered with Whisper White embossed with perfectly polka dot embossing folder.  On top of that is Marina Mist embossed with Gently Falling embossing folder.

    The sentiment is from "Happy Happenings".

    Supplies Used:
    Stamps: From Land to Sea, Happy happenings, In the Meadow
    Inks: Night of Navy, Dapper Denim, Marina Mist, Black Memento, Turtle: Soft Suede, Crushed Currie, Always Artichoke
    Papers: Dapper Denim, Whisper White, Old Olive, Marina Mist
    Accessories: Linen Thread, Triple Punch, clear embossing powder, Polka dot embossing folder, Gently falling embossing folder, dimensionals, glue dots.
