Submarines On Patrol For Your Heart!


Hello Crafty Friends! Today I am super excited to show you cards I made using the new Submarine Cubbies set from Art Impressions.

What are Cubbies? It's a line of stamps and dies (they always come together) that allow you to put characters into a structure of some sort. There are typically door flaps and other areas where you can stage the characters easily into a scene.

Both cards have the same clear embossed background. I used a My Favorite Things stencil called Perfect Pool Water and applied clear embossing powder on top of the patterned papers to create waves of shine. I love how it created so much texture while also making it look wet as all water should look! The watery patterned paper on the square card and the strip of fish patterned paper comes from a great Echo Park 6 x 6 pad called Summer Splash.

I have a video tutorial today full of tips and tricks for creating underwater scenes.

The first card is an A2. Isn't that octopus just precious? You can't say that about octopuses too often! I used the Ai Double Stitched Circle Dies for the sentiment and a matted fish patterned paper to add additional interest. I used Basis Aqua cardstock for the card base.

For the square card, I created sand at the bottom with torn gold glitter paper. I brushed the torn edges with Hero Arts Sand Tone ink and staged some of the stamp set's images in it. I used shell sequins and pearls from Eyelet Outlet to enhance it further. Then I positioned the submarine, critters and another sentiment from the set. I matted the main panel on Silk Glitter cardstock in Sparkling Water Aqua and used the same cardstock to make the bubbles which are included with this set. It even has the die for the bubbles! No shell was left unturned to make this new set a bonafide must have for your collection!

Have a fantastic Saturday everyone! Thanks for stopping by today. Don't forget to enter the Art Impressions current challenge for a chance to win 3 stamp sets of your choice!

Happy Creating!
