Best Fishes Cards with Rachel and Lexa

Hello everyone! It's Rachel here and I'm really excited to share with you today the brand new Best Fishes Stamp Set. I absolutely adore all of these cute little beach/sea creatures!

I created a fun little box card to share with you today that showcases this set. To start, I first created the base of my card with a scoring board, scissors, paper trimmer and adhesive. When folded, this card fits perfectly into a standard A2 sized envelope.

I stamped all of my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used my Copic Sketch Markers to color everything and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

For my waves, I blended some Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks and then used the new Catch A Wave Dies to cut them out. I also added some sandy beach portions using the little island from the Island Getaway Stamp Set as well as the Ocean of Joy Stamp Set. I used some patterned paper from the new Summer Splash Paper Pack for the background clouds as well as the side panels on my card.

I added two different palm trees using both the brand new Sending Sunshine Stamp Set and the Seasonal Trees Stamps. For my sentiment, I heat embossed it onto a strip of black card stock and then trimmed it with my paper trimmer. I placed it on two colored pieces of brown card stock to make it look like a banner being held by the cute little crab and the lobster.

I hope you enjoyed my card today! If you liked this card and want some more crafty inspiration, don't forget to check out my INSTAGRAM feed! Hugs!

Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a card featuring the brand new Best Fishes Stamps and the coordinating dies. I bet you enjoyed last weeks sneak peek through the new releases. So many wonderful new goodies right there, a week full of inspirations! So here's my take to create something from one of the cutest new stamp sets.

I start with an idea of vertical aquarium on my card. So I make 5.5"x1" and 5.5"x2" white stripes from a cardstock and created another 5.5"x2" with a watercolor paper. I think it's been a while since I did my favorite watercolor background like this. I use Salty Ocean, Peacock Feather, Tumbled Glass and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks to create the background. I just simply scribble some of them on a plastic sheet and sprayed a good amount of water to kind of blend them together. Then I put the watercolor paper on it. Yes, it's that simple really.

I stamped the images from Best Fishes with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Inks. After I finished with the coloring, I use the coordinating die to cut all the pieces in one go. Aren't they the cutest? I love them all, especially the hammer head shark! I also add rosy cheeks and googly eyes on them to add extra cuteness. I also stamped some bubbles with blue dye ink on the background. I want to keep rest of the card simple and white to keep the vertical aquarium the main point of my card.

That's all for today, I hope you like today's post and my card as much as I do. Thank you so much for stopping by today and have an amazing day!
