Making Waves – TCP May Release

I’m waving hello to May with this month’s TCP release.  I’ve had so much fun with the Make Waves SVGs. As soon as I saw the set, I couldn’t wait to cut out that cute seagull and have him bobbing on the waves.  And after I cut out the seagull and waves, I noticed I had a fabulous stencil left over:

Well, I was also excited to use the Fun in the Sun Digi and I went ahead and spread some Paper Glaze through my freshly cut stencil.  That fun wavy background was just right for this cool cat to float and enjoy her margarita.  I guess ocean scenes always get me thinking of portholes which put me in the mood for some round cards.  I decided to make this into a get well card with one of my favorite retired TCP sentiments.

For my gull card, instead of a porthole, I used the life preserver to frame the seagull.  I cut each piece with my Brother ScanNCut out of Neenah Solar White and sponged on all the colors with Distress Oxide, shading each piece a bit just by using the brush that I usually use for black or gray ink.  I popped up just the top of the bird and let the bottom of the bird rest more in the water.  And of course, I needed to add some glitter to the waves.

Frankly, I love to make seagull cards, because I can use one of my favorite birthday sentiments.  29 again?

The sentiment uses my very own font that I created on calligraphr.com.  If you’d like to use this on your cards just right click on the image above and save it to your computer.  If you use it, I’d love to see it, so please tag me @cardsbyjennifrann and #thestampingactuary.

Friendships Grow – Chibi July Release

Today we’re celebrating the  Stampers Delights  July release of Chibi-Friendships Grow.  As always this digital image comes in jpeg and png formats but this stamp set is also available as a clear stamp!  I love it! You can find the July release here.

I cut the stamp out using my ScanNCut and really enjoyed coloring her with my Copics.  Skin: R20, E11, E02, E00 | Hair: YR20, Y21, YR23 | Dress: R22, R20

I wanted a sunny card, so I used the flower image as a sun behind her, masked it, and applied yellow and gold Paper Glaze through a radial stencil.  She’s watering her field of patterned paper flowers and surrounded by shiny gold sequins.

Whale Hello – Inspiration Challenge #808

Saturday means it’s Inspiration Challenge Day.  Kelly is our hostess and she found us some great photos to inspire us.  This whale reminded me of one of my most recent purchases waiting to be inked up.

I bought A Dose of Vitamin Sea in my last purchase from Picket Fence Studios.  Ooh, it’s on sale right now!  Come to think of it–everything is on sale right now at Picket Fence Studios, so I need to go buy some more Paper Glaze.  I love this stuff.  I envisioned my whale in a deep blue ocean with fish swimming all around. A perfect excuse to use my Current of Fish Stencil with my PFS Paper Glaze. I used blue and green kind of mixed together for it. The background started with a swirly kind of marbly dark blue DP and I stamped SU Bamboo II to add some more depth and interest behind the fish. And because the site is Picture Frames, I added a frame.
