There's a Hole in the Bottom of the Sea - Create a Smile Stamp Video Design Team Debut

Hi Crafters,
I'm bringing you my very first Youtube Video for the Create a Smile Design Team :) I am so honoured to be a part of the team!

The idea behind is quite odd - most of my cards start off with an absurd idea. I teach English in Germany and I was teaching my students the song "There's a Hole in the Bottom of the Sea" and when I arrived home my Underwater Love Stamp had arrived and thus a card was born.

For a full tutorial, I have the video here:

  1. Create a top folding card by cutting a piece of 8 1/2 x 5.5 piece of cardstock and folding in half at 4 1/4 inches.
  2. Using watercolour paper, saturate the paper with water. Go back and forth with the brush using different shades of blue dye ink. Add some waves with your brush. Blot with paper towel.
  3. Stamp Wild Waters onto a piece of vellum. Cover with white embossing powder. Heat.
  4. Attach your vellum to the watercolour and cut a circle into the front of your card through all the layers.
  5. Using a pencil, trace the hole onto the inside of the card, stamp the octopus and watercolour. Add the bubbles.
  6. Create a banner and stamp the sentiment. Attach to the card. Erase pencil marks - Voila!

Hope you enjoyed this video tutorial!

Much love,

Christmas Card Challenges: Cookies Inspiration!

Hi crafters,
today I created a card for the Christmas Card Tutorials Design Team that had the theme of cookies. There was just one problem - I don't own anything with cookies. I will have to get to work on that, any stamp suggestions out there?

Anyway, when I don't have what I need I always check Cricut Design Space. I was a little nervous because this was my first time using the print and cut feature, but it worked beautifully and I was very happy with the card and how easy it was!

There is no video tutorial this week because it would have been about two minutes. Print and cut the grandma, glue down on some paper, stamp and throw some Antique Linen Distress Ink to fade out the background to match the image. That was all! Supply list is below!

Have you signed up for my class yet? Do so anytime, you do not want to miss out I am telling you!
