Guest Designer Spotlight: Cards with Keeway Tsao

Hi crafty friends! It’s Keeway Tsao from Kiwi Koncepts and I’m excited to be back guest blogging to share with you some fun oceanic cards with the Best Fishes set from the Summer 2019 release!

My first card is an underwater shaker card with many of the cute fishes from the Best Fishes set. I stamped all the images in the set in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them with Copic markers. Then, I used the matching dies to die cut the images out.

I created an ink blended background with Cracked Pistachio and Shaded Lilac distress oxide inks. With this ink blended A2 panel, I die cut the frame from Frilly Frames Chevron Die and again with a basic rectangle that is just slightly smaller. This creates our frame for the shaker.

I heat embossed the sentiment in white in the top right corner on the center piece. I also added a few images that will be inside of the shaker, leaving a few for later to be outside. I added lots of sequins and sealed it off with a foam taped border, acetate layer, and then the frame we just die cut out.

Lastly, I added all the remaining fishes to the card on top of the frame and acetate. This gives the scene some extra dimension. Look at how the shaker shines!

For my next card, I also used the Best Fishes set this time using the sharks. I had to separate them so they don’t eat the little fishes!

This card has a more graphic layout and uses the Catch A Wave Dies to create several layers that I ink blend on. I used this die several times on a piece of A2 white card stock and for each layer I picked one distress oxide ink to blend it in full.

In the top dark blue layer, I heat embossed my sentiment in white. Then I inlaid all the pieces back together when I adhered it onto a A2 base.

I splattered on some water to distress the ink for some texture. Finally, I added my sharks and some ocean plants to the card with foam tape.
