Shark Hugs Week - Day 5

January 17, 2020

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing Shark Hugs and let me tell you this shark has such a fun personality. I am excited to share my card with you!

To create my card I made stamped, die cut and colored the shark and envelope stamps. Next, I masked the background and added the ocean and sun. I used an older set to stamp the waves and used Shark Hugs to stamp the splashes. Next, I stamped the sentiment on a banner from Grand Photo Mat Dies and assembled the card.

Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you create!


Shark Hugs Week - Day 4

January 16, 2020

Hey everyone! It's Heather Campbell here. Today I've got a super cute card to share with you today using the new Shark Hugs stamp set. Eep, have you seen this set? It's so stinkin' cute!

For my card...
To create my card, I started with the Sea Scene die and cut from a light aqua cardstock. I used a Comic marker to color the waves a little darker and added it to my card base. I added glossy accents to the waves to make them really pop! 

I stamped, colored and die cut the shark and accessory bits from Shark Hugs. I thought it'd be fun to include the sentiment on a vellum banner using Banner Bits. Finally I assembled it all onto the card base and added a bit of twine to top it off. 

Super fun and sweet and I'm absolutely loving the vellum banner on this card. 
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day! 

Shark Hugs Week - Day 3

January 15, 2020

Hi friends,

Katie here with a card and tip to share with you featuring the Shark Hugs Clear Stamps and coordinating Elle-ments dies.

The Shark Hugs shark is so dapper, and I love that you can tuck various accessories into his fins. While you can certainly use a masking technique to place items into his fins, the coordinating Shark Hugs Elle-ments dies contain a special fin flap die that makes it so simple to tuck items into his fins.

I follow some easy steps to align the fin flaps die with the stamped image.

Once the fin flaps are cut, proceed as usual with coloring and die-cutting the shark image. I colored my shark with Copic markers and chose to tuck the bitten heart into his fins. For the background, I die-cut a panel of white card stock with the Three Hearts Elle-ments die. I blended a panel of watercolor card stock with a few shades of Distress Oxide Ink and spattered it with water to lift off some of the ink. 

 I placed the Three Heart panel on top of the blended panel. I die cut the Heart Frame Elle-ments die from gold card stock and placed the shark on top. I stamped the sentiment with black ink and attached the finished panel to an A-2 notecard. 


I hope that you will invite this handsome shark into your crafty collection and give the fin flap die a try! 

Thanks for stopping by!
