Milestone Birthday – 10 years old – B10d

Found this idea on Pinterest of course!  This is my last Shark punch art card for my 10 year olds!

Stamps: Something to Say (Happy Birthday), Timeless Treasures, Sky is the Limit (clouds), Bring on the Cake for the inside, Perfect Pairing (SAB 2016) for the envelope, Animal Stories for the envelope.

Paper: Smokey Slate, White, Black, Marina Mist.

Ink: Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray, Marina Mist

Accessories: ½” wiggle eyes, SU Dazzling Details glitter glue, Coluzzle, sponge, Gently Falling EF, Creative Memories Decorative Trimmer.

Punches: Carl for sun, Word Window.

Cut white cardstock 4-1/4” by 8-1/2” to create a top fold card.  Grunge the front with yellow ink and a few blue clouds.

I cut some waves and added glitter glue.  I didn’t do a very big piece as the middle will be covered with the shark. 

Cut in half and adhere to card. 

I just free handed the body shape.  Trace on to Smokey Slate cs. Trace the eye and mouth placement. 

Cut out the body only – erase pencil lines.  Sponge edges gray.  Put through the embossing folder and glue to the card front.

I used an oval Coluzzle to get the top of my mouth pattern.  Trace one black for mouth and one from white for teeth.  Draw teeth. 

Cut teeth.  Lay wrong side of teeth to the black mouth. 

Trim following the curve of the black, sponge and adhere to the shark.

Add the wiggle eyes and the sentiment.

I splattered a blue envelope with navy acrylic ink then stamped the HB from the Perfect Pairing (SAB 2016) stamp set and a couple whales from the Animal Stories stamp set.

Milestone Birthday – 10 years old – B10c

Cardstock: Basic Gray, White, black, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight.

Ink: black, Marina Mist, Pacific Point.

Stamp: For a Friend.

Accessories: sponge, Coluzzle, Stampin Chalk Marker, pencil, wax paper, wiggle eyes.

Punches: 5 Petal, Blossom Petals Builder, ¾” circle, ½” circle, sun by Carl.

Font: Calibi size 28 for the #10.

After making Marie’s shark punch HERE, I thought – why can’t I make the same shark head using my Coluzzle to make a bigger shark?  Not sure he really looks like a shark or whale but I hope my 10 year olds think he’s just fine!

Here is what you need to make this.  Not sure why the owl punch is listed – I think I planned to use the little circles for the eyes but changed my mind so just ignore the owl punch!

Cut one grey and one white oval about 4” tall using the Coluzzle.

Cut one black oval about 3” tall using the Coluzzle.

Punch his tail using the 5 Petal punch in grey.

Punch two fins using a petal from the Blossom Petals Builder punch.

Sponge all pieces in black ink.

Fold all ovals in half with right sides together.

Draw teeth on the edge of the black oval with a Stampin Chalk Marker or a white gel pen.  Set aside.

Kiss the top part of the white oval to the top part of the grey oval as shown.

Glue into place.  Glue the black oval to the white oval matching the fold lines as shown.

Add tail and fins.  I found this easier to do if I set my shark on the top of the card so they would fit for width and height so they would fit on the card.  Set this aside until the card front is prepared.

I stippled the card front with a ball of wax paper and Marina Mist ink.

Cut two, 2” strip of Marina Mist cardstock a bit wider than the card.

Alternate between the ½” and ¾” circle punches to make the waves.  Sponge with Pacific Point ink.

Draw a line with a pencil at 2-1/8” from the bottom of the card.  Adhere a strip of waves matching the pencil line.  Add a second row of waves under this.  Trim edges.
Draw another pencil line at 2-7/8” from the bottom of the card.  Line up the bottom of the fins with the pencil line and glue in place.

Erase pencil lines.

Another fun Shark punch art or is it a Whale punch art to make using the Coluzzle this time.

SU270 Watercolor Trio – Thanks so Much

I used markers to ink my stamp then used the stamp-a ma-jig to position them.  There is a great tutorial on how to use the stamp-a ma-jig HERE.

Stamps: Watercolor Trio, Flight of the Butterfly (for the inside).

Inks: Basic Black, Regal Rose and Always Artichoke.

Paper: Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, Regal Rose, White.

Accessories: Always Artichoke Marker, Regal Rose marker, mounts, stamp a ma jig, Decorative Dots embossing folder, sponge, Crystal Effects.

Punch: Large Oval, Scallop oval, Scallop Trim Border, ¼” circle.

Once I finished the panel, I ran it through the embossing folder.  To make Faux brads, punch ¼” circles.  Adhere to the card.  Cover with Crystal Effects and let dry.

Here is the inside of the card and envelope.

Stampin' Up! Foam ink pads

Each of the pads comes with a multi-language label affixed to the bottom.  Remove the entire label and select the correct language and adhere it to the flat end of your ink pad, so you see the color and the color name.

From one of the remaining labels, cut off some of the color and stick it on the inside of the open pad.  Whether your ink pad is open or closed, you can see the color especially if you have several pads open.

Also, fill the top of your re-inker lid with glue.

Punch a 1/8” or ¼” circle   and stick it to the top of your re-inker making it easy see the right color.
