Shell, Yeah!

1/23/22 Favorite at The Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes Challenge!

Hey y’all! It’s a beautiful 42 degrees here in southwestern Colorado – the sun’s out and the sky is blue! Couldn’t ask for a better day! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! There’s a whole lotta fun going on over at The Outlawz Challenges and I’ve created a cute card to enter into the current Sunday Songs and Rhymes Challenge! Polkadoodles is the sponsor this time and we were given the Mermaid Song to find inspiration from, so I thought it only fitting to use the Polkadoodles Winnie Mermaid Kisses digital image which I combined with the fun Trinity Stamps Summertime Sentiments stamp set.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Vista cardstock and Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock. I adhered the metallic blue cardstock to the card base. I inked the watercolor cardstock with Ranger stormy sky and chipped sapphire distress inks, cut four waves from the panel using the My Favorite Things Ocean Motion Die-namics and adhered them together in horizontal strips. I added an Eyelet Outlet shell brad and adhered the waves to the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Trinity Stamps Summertime Sentiments stamp set which I trimmed and flagged with a square punch, and adhered it to the bottom of the waves. I printed the pre-colored version of the image on CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock, die cut it with the My Favorite Things Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle STAX Die-namics and adhered it to the card front. The finishing touch was the addition of some blue bumpy bling from Eyelet Outlet.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Vista cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the same Trinity Stamps Summertime Sentiments stamp set in Catherine Pooler Cove Blue ink and layered the panel on the metallic blue cardstock.

And one more peek… such an adorable image that I’m glad I remembered I had. I believe this is only the second time I’ve used it.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
