Honey Bee Stamps Under The Sea Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!
Today I'm here to share my cards for the Honey Bee Stamps Under The Sea Blog Hop. We have an a amazing new release and loads of inspiration & prizes, you wouldn't want to miss. You should have come here from the amazing Galina's Blog, If not, you can start from the Honey Bee Stamps blog. Here's a look at my cards for the hop :

CARD INSPIRATION :


 I have added few clear dew drops, stars and sequins from the Coral Shell Sequin Mix.


To create this card, I started with the new Swimming By set. I stamped the mermaid on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest 110 lbs cardstock and coloured it using the Zig Clean Color markers. I fussy-cut it out and placed it on my card base. The sun-rays were lightly ink blended using a DIY stencil I made. The waves were also created using the same way. I used Broken China for the waves & Mustard Seed Distress ink for the rays. I also stamped, fussy-cut and added those tiny elements on the bottom of the card using stamps from Under The Sea set. The sentiment is from the Mermaid Song set. I added few sequins, dew drops and stars from the Coral Shell Sequin mix to complete my card.


CARD 2 : MISS YOU SHAKER CARD 



I have used the Ocean Borders stamp set for this card. I started by stamping the large 6'' X 6'' Ocean Waves pattern using Versamark Embossing ink on Neenah 110lbs cardstock and heat embossed it in white. I watercolored the background using Zig Markers.  For the focal of my card, I again used the mermaid from the Swimming By set as well as the smaller images from the Under The Sea set. All of them have been stamped, coloured and fussy-cut. I added sequins from the Birthday Bash Sequin Mix to create the shaker. I then used an inverted scalloped rectangle die frame to complete the shaker. I added another scalloped frame over the watercolored background and popped it on foam tape for that raised look. It was colored lightly using Broken China Distress ink. Matted everything on a A2 Card Base to complete my card.
