Colour Creations: Diorama card featuring Calypso Coral and Sea of Textures

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Calypso Coral!!!

I am using the Sea of Textures bundle to create this Diorama card. Calypso Coral is the perfect colour for the fish, coral and starfish!

I have also used Pool Party for the background and embossed it with the Seaside TIEF. Crushed Curry makes wonderful bright coral and Bermuda Bay, well it’s just a stunning colour for almost anything!

The measurements to make this card, I started with a piece of cardstock measuring 5⅞” x 11¾” and scored at 3½”, 4”, 7½”, 8, 11½”. Burnish all the scorelines, and die cut the circle . Remember, before you adhere the short end to the centre of the card, make sure you do all the decorating first, it makes it much easier. 😉

And here’s the inside of the card. I stamped off the netting image with Crushed Curry for a more subtle background effect on the white card, but stamped it full strength on the Pool Party card behind the circle cutout. The octopus is stamped tone on tone in Calypso Coral. The border around the die cut circle is a piece of the Nature’s Poem DSP.

I love the layers of this with the Diorama style card acting like a port hole of a sunken ship.

Under the Sea Textures

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card with more of a masculine theme. As you know, I struggle with these types of cards, but this Sea of Textures bundle had me excited when I first saw it. In conjunction with the new Embossing Mats, it gives so many more options to add texture with the cutting dies!!!

See that white coral die cut piece in the bottom corner? Well, I used that same die with the new embossing mats to create the embossed section on the Soft Sea Foam card.

The octopus was inked with Grapefruit Grove and then I used Call Me Clover and Blueberry Bushel Stampin’ Write Markers using the thumping technique to add that extra bit of colour to the tentacles.

I love how the wood textures Designer Series Paper adds the perfect texture for the port hole!
