Today I have a fun clean and simple card to share with you. LDRS Creative has just released our fun summer release. This fun set named "Shore Lucky" includes 25 photo polymer "clear" stamps which make creating a fun summer scene super easy!
Step By Step Card Recipe:
Step 1: I started with a A2 size card base ( 8.5 x 5.5" folded in half) and using the newly released Hybrid Inks in "Swimming Hole, Bali Blue, and Iced Tea" I swiped (ink pad directly onto paper) the white card with the ink pads in a wavy pattern to create the sky, sea, and sand.
Step 2: I used some of the stamps from the "Shore Lucky" stamp set to create the clouds, waves, and sand, also using our Hybrid ink.
Step 3: I stamped the palm trees, dolphin, surf board, and the two little crabs onto white card stock. For the palm trees I inked the stamps with both "Four Leaf and Coffee Bean" Hybrid Inks. Using my alcohol markers I colored in the dolphin, surf board and crabs in and then attached all of the pieces to the card front.
Step 4: I stamped the "Shore lucky to have you" sentiment from the "Shore Lucky" stamp set with our "Raven Hybrid Ink"
Step 5. I wanted to add a frame to give the card a photo feel so I cut 1/4" strips of blue card stock which matches the A2 card base that I attached the scene onto. I layered them around the edge of the card popping it up with foam tape.
This was my very first time using the new Hybrid Inks by LDRS Creative and I am excited to let you all know what a wonderful product they are. I had no issues using them with the clear stamps. Each stamped image came out crisp and clear on the first try. For the dolphin I actually stamped him in "Dark Washed Jeans" and since it is a Hybrid ink I was able to color it in with my alcohol markers without any smears or smudging.
