Hello friends! I hope that you’ve had a wonderful 4th of July celebration yesterday!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted! I have had MANY crafty things going on “behind the scenes” and I will be sharing all with you at another time, so please excuse the gaps in my postings until then. Hopefully in a few weeks it will calm down a bit and I can post about what I’ve been working on! 🙂
It is already time for another CUTE CARD THURSDAY challenge again! Where in the world did that week go?! Really easy peasy “ANYTHING GOES” challenge for you this week, so I hope you will consider adding whatever you’re working on this week to the gallery over there. The team has plenty of inspiration and there is a wonderful prize from our sponsor, Whimsy Stamps! I have used one of their images on my card for today…check it out!
Tee hee! This crab is just too funny and cute! I have used the Whimsy Stamps digital image called Crabby Cranston. I colored him with Copic markers and fussy cut him out and attached him to my beach background with foam tape.
To create the background, I have masked off the top portion, blended some distress ink and then spritzed it with water to give it some texture for the beach sand look. I’ve also taken a few markers and gel pens to add even more texture to it. I then masked off the bottom portion and blended some more distress inks for the sky. I had an old beach sign image (given to me by a friend) that I stamped over top of the sand before I attached the crab.
I cut out the beach scene with a MFT Wonky Stitch rectangle die and printed out my own sentiment that was cut with a MFT banner die to attach at the top of the scene panel. I then mounted this to an A2 sized top folding white card base. I then added some Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins and added some clear Stickles to the centers of each.
Hope you’ve enjoyed my “Life Lesson” for today! 🙂 Thanks so much for dropping in and I will be back again tomorrow with another week of ICAD and another fun creation I’ve been working on! Please be sure to join in our Cute Card Thursday challenge this week!
