Hello, crafty friends! For this month’s MFT Stamps Hits & Highlights the Design Team was challenged to use the largest frame from the A2 Rectangle Frame Die-namics along with the A2 Rectangle Shaker Pouches.
I absolutely love the A2 Rectangle Shaker Pouches and Frame. I recently made a few other cards using these same two pieces but for my card today, I went with the BB Mermazing Stamp Set. This is one of my favorite stamp sets from Birdie Brown (truly, I love them all) and I had a lot of fun creating this underwater scene.
To start, I first created my background by blending some Distress Inks (colors listed above) onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I splattered it with some water and then blotted it dry with a paper towel to create some more interest and an underwater effect.
I stamped all of my images with Copic friendly Black Ink, colored them with Copic Sketch Markers, and used their coordinating dies to cut them out. I used the Adorned Ocean Friends Stamp Set to heat emboss some underwater foliage in Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. Once finished, I adhered my images with some liquid adhesive and then poured my embellishments carefully into the middle of the card.
I then was able to glue on both my Shaker Pouch and then Frame around the outer edge of my standard A2-sized card.
I just love the final effect! I used a mixture of White Seed Beads and small clear sequins for my shaker embellishments.
Here are the two other cards that I’ve recently made using the A2 Shaker Pouch and Frame.
