Today I’m sharing a card using the Stamp Club stamp called Don’t Worry Beach Happy.
Even though one might think that the stamp club stamps are small, they always pack a powerful punch in the sense that you have many options given their smaller size. You can repeat stamp, layer, make a focal point, make a background and so much more with them. I’m going to use all three elements and distribute them over a mini slim line panel.
To start I took a mini slim line base in white and another mini slim size panel 1/4 inch smaller than the card base size. Find the related video on Youtube here: https://youtu.be/GrflYTsV4NM
Working with the smaller panel I teared uneven strips of painters tape (you can use 1 inch wags tape instead) to make my own background stencil to use with the glaze and candy coat.
On a piece of watercolor card stock I stamped the cute squirrel with Raven Black Ink which is waterproof. This image was colored with Karin Markers. I also stamped the sentiment and the starfish. Once the coloring was done to my liking, I proceeded to die cut them with different sized rectangular dies.
Meanwhile the coated background was dry and ready. I added gold lines by using aqua pigment straight from the bottle. I framed this background with a black card stock mat. In the final step I adhered the background panel with tape runner and over that added the stamped elements in a tumble-down manner with foam tape to give some dimension.
I love the fun and bright stripes on this card and of course the cute squirrel building the sand castle.
