Our Shells Shine

Over at The Stamps of Life we are all excited to get creating with the NEW Club Set for May! Let us introduce you to shells2stamp! Today we made a simple little card to get the creativity started!

We started out die-cutting the perfect card base with the Sizzix Lovely Drop-in A2 Card Base. If you want a perfectly even card every single time this is the way to go... It even makes a easy to see create line down the middle!
Add some Stamps of Life patterned paper from the Together Collection and some twine from the April Card Kit! Next we used our Circle Dies, nested two inside of each other to die-cut some rings. Die cut the Shine Statement Set with a shadow and attach to the card. Of course we used Adhesive Sheets on the rings and the Shine Statement. Boy, that stuff sure makes life, or at least crafting, easier!

Here's our favorite part! Use a Water Brush to pick up some ink either directly from your Stamps of Life ink pad or from the lid of the stamp pad. All the shells from shells2stamp were stamped in Chocolate ink and watercolored with Storm ink.

Now use some Adhesive Foam to pop up your shells and stamp a sentiment from the Club set!

Hope you enjoyed todays tutorial and you take some time to create something like it with your Club Set!
