Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. Today I am sharing some Waves of the Ocean suite cards with you. I have been noticeably absent this past week, or at least I hope it was noticed! My oldest daughter and her family moved in with me temporarily until they get possession of their new house. I was in full mom and oma mode and it has been wonderful! Now it is a new week, March break is over, school has begun and so has their regular work routine. Let’s take a look at my Waves of the Ocean cards.
Waves of the Ocean Cards
For the month of March I have been doing a video tutorial each Tuesday on YouTube and Facebook at 10am EST. I pair this with something I call “Parcels in the Post”. This is a collection of cardstock, patterned paper, embellishments and ribbon that gives you enough to play with but doesn’t break the bank. If you want one, click here.
When you read this, I will still have two of these cards to share in my Tuesday tutorials. I hope that you will find me on YouTube and subscribe to my channel! It really is one of the best ways to see what I am doing quite literally.
Embossing on Blue Foils
Yes, you CAN emboss on our foil paper. You have to be careful to stop as soon as all the powder is “set”. If you “cook” it too long, then the foil will start to bubble or delaminate. Embossing in white on those gorgeous blues is really quite stunning. The wave image is really a gorgeous stamp.
Magic happens when you layer the stamped wave with the die cut waves. One wave is cut from our blue foils paper and the other is cut from our Supple Shimmer paper. The wave was stamped twice and spritzed to get this great effect. You can see it all in action in my video tutorials.
Masked Cloudy Skies
For this card I used the Basic Borders dies to make a mask which I then moved around after sponging on ink with my Blending Brushes. Both the wave and the pelican stamps were inked and spritzed to get a softer look.
I don’t quite know whether I am coming or going these days. My household has grown from one person to five people, including two littles and a dog! Last week was also March break which meant no school and no daycare, but it also meant lots of oma snuggles and precious memories. I pre-recorded some of the videos for these Waves of the Ocean cards, so some are already up on my YouTube channel and some will be going up in the next two weeks. Please follow me on YouTube and subscribe to my channel. Videos are going to be the main way that I connect with my stamping audience, all other things are secondary.
Just Until the end of the Month
Please be aware that a lot of the products in the Waves of the Ocean suite are only available until March 31. Only the stamp set and dies will carry over into the new annual catalog. The rhinestone waves gems are stunning and the patterned paper is beautiful too. It’s all fabulous!!
Thanks for joining me today, I hope you have a fabulous day. See you here on Wednesday again.
Great work, Jackie
Enjoy your creations! love to watch you on FB & U tube.
