Hello stampers and happy Monday. Today I want to share some very simple kids cards using Make A Splash. This stamp set is NOT for sale but you can get it for FREE if you place a $200 order or if you host a virtual workshop. How much fun would that be? You can invite some of your friends and we can do a private Zoom class. Everyone can then place their orders using the host code and you will get the host rewards. If we do it before March 31, then you will all get free saleabration products too.
Fishy Kids Cards
This is such a fun set where you can use the stamps to build a colourful scene. There are three different fish and three different types of plant life. Included in this fun stamp set is also a happy crab, some bubbles, a fish bowl and a water stamp and a water line stamp. Lots of creative possibilities. I hope to use this set for my next kids class.
When I am editing these pictures I am thinking, wow, they are dark! I must have taken these at night, so sorry that they are a little unclear. You do get the picture though, pardon the pun!
The Details on Make a Splash Cards
I used granny apple green, pumpkin pie and bermuda bay. If you use shimmery white cardstock then you can also use an aqua painter for a fun effect.
Here the fish were stamped repeatedly in pumpkin pie. Two of the fish were stamped and fussy cut and then popped up with dimensionals. The saying was stamped in versamark and embossed in white on pretty peacock cardstock. I added a few gold sequins and some bubbles in bermuda bay.
This card uses shimmery white cardstock. I stamped the fish bowl in memento ink stamped off so it would be lighter. An aqua painter was used to colour the water and then the fish were stamped on top. The fish on the top right was stamped upside down, so he wasn’t looking too lively. I decided that this would be an embellishment opportunity, so I popped up another fussy cut fish so it would appear that this lively fish was swimming ahead of the unfortunate one! Here is a blog post from a year ago that shows more watercolouring on shimmery white cardstock.
Class to Go
I am hoping to incorporate these cards into a Littles and Me class to go for Saturday April 11. The first seven people who sign up will get the Make a Splash stamp set as an Easter gift from me. Stay tuned for details, the only thing I know for sure is that the class will be $35 and there will be enough supplies for the whole family.
Time is Running Out
This is the last week of March, so that means time is running out for you to get free saleabration items or to get an amazing deal on the starter kit. With everyone starting to go a little stir crazy from being cooped up in their own homes and not being able to socialize, a box full of Stampin’Up! supplies is a great antidote to boredom. If you live in Canada and want to examine this option but need more information, please message me and we can chat! Know what you want? Click here to get started.
If you are a fellow Stampin’Up! demonstrator and would love some personal training in a small group environment, you might want to join my Pampered Stamper Facebook training group. There is small monthly fee of five dollars to compensate me for my time, but it is worth far more than that. I do weekly live videos and a free monthly pdf tutorial. Connecting is what I do best, and I love to help you maximize your potential.
Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you are keeping sane throughout these unusual times. I am doing daily Facebook lives, I hope you join me and that you tell your friends about it too. Creativity and live videos can really help people feel less alone. There has never been a better time for happy mail, so start stamping and sending cards and making a difference in people’s lives! I hope you have a super day.
