Week 40 – Rich Razzleberry

You may be thinking, what on earth is she using the Waves of Inspiration bundle for this hop when we are featuring Rich Razzleberry, right?!! Well, I wanted to try something a little different.

Waves of the Ocean Collection 161797

My card uses pink tones of Rich Razzleberry and Fresh Freesia, and doesn’t it give a different vibe?!!!

I started with a Rich Razzleberry card base (29.7cm x 10.5cm, scored at 14.85cm). The Basic White insert (14.3cm x 10cm) was placed in the Stamparatus. I inked the wave image in Fresh Freesia then took a dauber and added some Rich Razzleberry ink to get some variation happening, then stamped it onto the card. I always use the Stamparatus for this, as I could line up the wave image perfectly if I needed to add more colour. I glued this to the inside of my card.

The Fresh Freesia layer is the same size as the insert and I placed this in the centre of the card front without glue. Sit it on the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Stitched Rectangle die. I place a tiny bit of Washi tape to hold the die in place as I run it through the machine. This cuts the stitched rectangle in the card front.

Are you wondering how I got that stamped texture on the Freesia frame? I stamped it with the wave stamp in Fresh Freesia ink! Isn’t it a cool effect?

The wave dies are cut in Basic White. One of them I placed (without glue) on the inside of the card at the base of the stamped wave. Carefully closing the card, I could see where I would need to apply glue. You can see this in this image below. The second wave die cut is placed on the card front in the same manner and trimming a little off the ends so it doesn’t hang over, before adhering the Freesia frame over the top.

The next step was to stamp the sentiments and die cut them with the label dies from the same bundle. The one on the front didn’t quite reach, so I cut a strip of Rich Razzleberry card and threaded it through so it could be adhered to the card front. I repeated the process for the Happy Birthday on the inside. The clouds and birds were also die cut and added with Multipurpose glue and some Basic Rhinestone Jewels added, because you can never have too much bling!

Has my card today inspired you to create with non-traditional colours for the waves?!!

I case’d this idea from a card I saw by Seeing Ink Spots, but I changed it up a little adding the die cut waves.

Waves of the Ocean Collection 161797

My card is using the Waves of Inspiration Bundle (stamps & dies) and is a fairly simple design aimed at the casual crafter. I first stamped the wave in Pacific Point ink, then used basic white & the supple shimmer card to die cut two of the intricate layers. I glued the white layer on first and took my blending brush with some pool party ink and blended some colour across the wave. The clouds are created using the Basic Borders dies and gently brushing ink starting at the top of the card and working down to the wave.

I then glued the (Pool Party) Supple Shimmer layer on top to get that gorgeous sparkle for the breaking wave. The pelican image is inked by placing Crumb Cake ink for the pelican and Soft Suede ink for the posts before stamping down onto the white card. Die cut this and place on the card with mini dimensionals. The sentiment and birds flying off into the distance are also stamped in Soft Suede ink. Lastly, I added some Wink of Stella to the feathers of the pelican.
