I am so excited to share my Seaside Shore 3D Fish Tank Card with you all, that I honestly couldn’t wait and had to post about it TODAY!
Our Team – Eureka Stampers – has been set a challenge this week from our amazing leader.
She has challenged us to create SOMETHING every day for the first week of October. She sets a specific challenge everyday, and we create something according to tat challenge! You may have already seen one I have shared on my Facebook Page – My Paper Oasis.
Todays challenge was to create something using EVERY SINGLE STAMP in one set! Have you ever thought about such a task. I realised the difficulty I was facing when rummaging through my sets to decide which stamp set to use. So many actually have multiple sentiments that would make them tricky to use for this challenge. The more I looked, the more I realised just how tricky this was going to be!
After LOTS of consideration I decided to choose our Seaside Shore Stamp Set. It only had two sentiments and a host of stamps that coordinate really well together. But I really wanted to do something Fancy! So I started playing around with ideas in my head, and came up with using one of Bronwyn Eastley’s Tutorials for my design team project this month. The tutorial I used to create my fish tank was none other than her Spring Planter Box Card!
Huh? I hear you ask – pop over to her tutorial shop HERE and see her brilliant design for yourself!
I basically used her Box Base to create the base of my Fish Tank. Check it out –
I cannot tell you just how much fun this was to create! The most difficult part was photographing the Fish Tank! But I gave it a good try so you could see all the angles!
And from the top :
And you are going to love the next bit … it even folds flat for postage! This one is in a 6″ x 6″ envelope. The top will need adjusting slightly – or you could make your own using our Envelope Punch Board.
Bronwyn’s tutorials really are versatile. I simply added Window Sheets at the same measurements as the box base (although I did have to trim a very small bit off one end for it to fit snuggly) and then filled it up with all the images from the stamp set as per our team challenge!
I truly hope you love it as much as I do! I would love to hear what you think – so feel free to leave me a comment 🙂
Hi everyone and welcome to Colour INKspiration 17!
Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month we get to play along to a gorgeous colour combination inspired from Pinterest Images. This week we have such a bright and fun colour palette to work with!
The colours this week are Pool Party; Lemon Lime Twist; Tempting Turquoise and Flirty Flamingo! They scream spring and summer to me, unfortunately in Melbourne there is very little sign of sun at all!
I was grateful for the bright cheery colours though this week. It’s my niece’s birthday this week and I needed to make her a birthday card, so I combined this colour Inspiration with a tutorial from the amazing Bronwyn Eastley at addINKtive Designs to create my project.
I used Bronwyn’s This Little Piggy Slider Card tutorial for the base of my project and switched out the colours to suit this challenge, as well as using my gorgeous Magical Mermaid Stamp.
This card design is extra fun because it’s interactive. You can actually move the mermaid along the card, so a bit of extra fun for my niece! If you would like to make a card like this then just pop on over to the AddINKtive Designs Tutorial Shop where you can purchase the tutorial and create your own design 🙂
Now it’s time to hop on over to the lovely Simone Bartrum and see what beautiful project she has for you all.
I am super excited to announce that I have been chosen to be part of the addINKtive Design Team. Each month I will be showcasing one of the tutorials by the amazing Bronwyn Eastley.
To kick off my first month I decided to use Bronwyn’s One Wild Ride Z-Fold Card Tutorial with its special slider feature. Bronwyn’s instructions are very clear and simple to follow, so you can adapt her designs to create your very own…like I did for my version!
Bronwyn’s design is a masculine card, but I changed mine up for just a bit of fun and created my This Little Piggy Z Fold Card … he he he…
When I saw her design the idea of a little piggy running along a fence just bounced into my head, so of course I had to create it!
I created the background using the ombre papers from the Colour Theory Designer Series Paper Stack. Simply use Bronwyn’s measurements and lay a Blue piece on top of a Green Piece, then cut the rolling hills. Seperate them and then match your bottom green piece to your top blue piece and voila – instant rolling hills with shades of blue and green! The only thing I did do was mark where I needed to begin cutting the next pieces so my ‘hills’ would meet.
I pulled out the much neglected (in my craft room anyway) Sprinkles of Life stamp set and punch to create the trees, apples, birds and flowers. I had truly forgotten how versatile this amazing stamp set can be! Did you know it also makes cupcakes, ice creams, clouds, baskets and bunches of flowers!
I did change up the slider section slightly as I wanted it to look more like a fence, so I created two strips rather than one, and used a couple of the punched pieces for fence posts at the start and end of the slider.
Some embossing paste for fluffy clouds and the cute little piggies and I was finished! It’s just a bit cute and fun to slide that piggy along the fence! Lol. And the best bit – these cards fold flat for posting!
If you love this and would like to know how to create your own – just pop over to the AddINKtive Designs Tutorial shop HERE and purchase the tutorial. Simple 🙂
