How to Create Seafoam with Embossing Paste

Today I’m sharing a beach scene card and how to create seafoam with embossing paste.  I never tire of creating beach scenes for the summer months and using different die cut images to change things up from one card to the next.  For this card I used the Rubbernecker Inside Scallop Nested Die, Beach Chairs, Beach Umbrellas, Sun Moon, Deckle Hills, Grass #2, Small Birds and Splatter Background.

Come over to my beach scene post to see my tutorial on how to create seafoam with embossing paste and sparkly clear glitter.

Sky and Ocean Scene Base

  • Hand cut a scalloped mask and attach it across the scene base.
  • Use a blender brush to apply Beachside ink to the ocean area of the scene base.
  • Remove the mask.
  • Create the cloudy sky area using Beachside ink, a cloud stencil and blender brush.
  • Move the stencil down on the cardstock after each application of ink. 
  • Note:  I flip the stencil over after each row of clouds is applied so no two lines of clouds are the same.

Create the Seafoam with Embossing Paste

  • Dip your finger into the white embossing paste and apply a small amount on your finger tip.
  • Lightly dab your finger over the ocean area.
  • Continue the process until you are happy with the  coverage.
  • Allow a few spots to have heavier coverage of paste.
  • Note:  The trick to applying the embossing paste is just light dabbing touches with your finger. Dabbing too forcefully flattens the paste and does not look natural. 
  • Apply clear glitter to the paste while it is still wet to add a touch of sparkle. Set it aside to dry while you die cut the beach images.
  • Take a look at my Tropical Beach Card to see step by step photos of how I used the masking technique and cloud stencil to create the sky and ocean background and how I applied the embossing paste to create the seafoam.

The Scene and Card Base

  • Cut the scalloped layer using white cardstock.
  • Attach the scene layer to the scalloped layer using ATG adhesive.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the layers and attach to the A2 sized card base.

Come over to my beach scene post to see my tutorial on how to create seafoam with embossing paste and clear glitter.

The Die Cut Images

  • Cut the beach chair and small birds using white cardstock.
  • Use Kraft cardstock to cut the sand layer and grass using green cardstock.
  • Cut the umbrella using bright pink and yellow cardstock and the sun using yellow cardstock.
  • Apply Mocha ink to the sand layer and then stamp the splatter image using Pecan ink.
  • Use a mini applicator to apply Chill ink to the wings of the birds.
  • Attach the umbrella sections together using glossy accents.

Assemble the Scene

  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the sand layer and attach it to the scene base.
  • Use a strip of rolled up double stick tape applied to the back of the umbrella pole, tuck it in behind the sand layer and attach it to the card base.rolled double stick tape 2
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the inside corner and top center of the umbrella.
  • Round the umbrella gently with your fingers and then attach it to the scene base.
  • Apply glossy accents to the bottom portion of the beach chair and attach it to the sand layer.
  • Attach a few of the grass sprigs in behind the sand layer and attach using glossy accents.
  • Use a large piece of mounting tape to attach the sun to the scene base.
  • Finish the card by attaching the small birds in the sky area using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come over to my beach scene post to see my tutorial on how to create seafoam with embossing paste and sparkly glitter.

I hope you enjoyed seeing how to create seafoam with embossing paste.  White embossing paste also works great to create snow on your winter cards.  Take a look at my Snowy Pine Tree and Woody and Christmas Tree cards for snow examples.  And for more inspiration check out Pinterest to see lots of different ways to use embossing paste.  I sure do appreciate you coming by today and I hope you have a great week.

Farm Pop Up Box

It was so much fun making this farm pop up box card. When I design a pop up box I like to fill it full of themed images that tells a story, starting on the main top portion of the box and carries over to the three flaps.  For this project I used Rubbernecker’s Barn, Tractor, Farm Animals, Chicken/Squirrels, Ducks, Picket Fence, Corn Stalks, Grass, Bird Set and Cloud Stencil.  I used Color Fuse Inks Sets #2, #4 to color the chickens and ducks and set #9 to create the cloudy background. The card base was made using the Square Pop Up Box Card kit from The Paper Cut.

I pulled out all the farm themed dies that I had to create this fun, dimensional farm pop up box card. All dies are made by Rubbernecker.

Assemble the 3D Pop Up Box Base

  • Cut the layering pieces.  The sky sections were cut using blue cardstock and the grass layers were made using  green cardstock.
  •  2   5 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ layers
  •  2   3 5/8″ x 2 3/4″ layers
  •  4   1 7/8″ x 2 3/4″ layers
  • Use a cloud stencil, blender brush and Beachside ink to create the clouds on the blue sky layers.
  • Attach the paper layers to the inside and outside card base using ATG adhesive.
  •  Apply 1/2″ double stick tape to the box tab, line it up and secure the box closed.
  • Cut the green grass sections to fit the tabs included in the kit and attach them with ATG adhesive.
  • Apply 1/2″ double stick tape to the tabs on both sides of the grass layers and insert them inside the box.
  • Note:  I use the Be Creative double stick tape on the tabs because it is much stronger than the ATG adhesive.  I like to use the ATG adhesive on layering paper because it is fast and easy.

The Barn and Tractor

  • Cut the barn using red and white cardstock.
  • Assemble the barn pieces and attach to the barn base using double stick tape.
  • Cut the tractor using red and black cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces and attach together using mounting tape and glossy accents.

Fence, Grass Layers and Corn Stalks

  • Cut several fence sections using white cardstock and grass an corn stalk sections using green cardstock.
  • Trim fence sections to fit on the front flap and attach them together using glossy accents.
  • Cut the small fence layers to fit on the side flaps.
  • Attach grass layers to the back of the fence sections using ATG adhesive.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the bottom of the fence grass sections and a strip of mounting tape to the side fence sections and attach them to the flaps.

I pulled out all the farm themed dies that I had to create this dimensional farm pop up box card. All dies are made by Rubbernecker.

The Farm Animals

  • Cut the cows and ducks using white cardstock and the chickens using yellow card stock.
  • Use a black marker to color the cows and bulls.
  • Attach the red collar and gold bell to the cow necks and the gold ring to the bull nose using glossy accents.
  • Color the chickens and roosters using Pumpkin and Crimson ink and mini applicators.
  • Use a mini applicator and Pumpkin ink  to color the beaks and legs of the ducks.
  • Cut a bird using red cardstock and color the beak using a black marker.

Assemble and Attach the Farm Pop Up Box

  • Apply double stick tape to the back bottom portion of the barn and mounting tape to the back top and attach it to the top card base.
  • Tuck the corn stalks in behind the fence sections and on both sides of the barn and attach using glossy accents.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the cows and chickens to the top grass layers.
  • Attach the tractor to the front flap using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Use small pieces of mounting tape to attach the ducks, red bird and chicken to the flaps.

I pulled out all the farm themed dies that I had to create this 3Dl farm pop up box card. All dies are made by Rubbernecker.

My thought process for this farm pop up box was “more is more” and it was lots of fun deciding where to place all the images.  I like creating themed car and this one definitely says “Farm”.  Check out my Fall Pop Up Box Card and Paper Flower Pop Up Box Card to see other fun themed projects.  For even more inspiration check out my Pop Up Box category and this Pinterest link. Thank you so much for coming by and I hope you are having a good week.  Stay safe and be careful out there.

Door Cards that Welcome You In

Door cards have become so popular in paper crafting.  I love the challenge of making each door scene unique by adding seasonal embellishments.  For this pretty summer scene I used the Rubbernecker Door with Steps, Macrame Planters, Tall Terracotta Pots, Small Flowers #1, Small Flowers #3, Tiny Flower Buds, Grass Set, Puppies, Knob Top Fence and Leaves and Greenery.

Door cards have become very popular in paper crafting. Embellishing the door with flowers and foliage creates a pretty welcoming scene.

The Siding Card Base

  • Cut several 1/2 x 4 1/4″ strips of white cardstock
  • Apply ATG adhesive to a strip and attach it on the bottom of the card base.
  • Continue attaching the strips overlapping each strip slightly over the strip below it until you reach the blue layer..

Assemble The Door

  • Cut the door sections using white cardstock.
  • Attach the pieces together using double stick tape.
  • Cut white cardstock to fit behind the window openings and attach to the back of the door using double stick tape.
  • Attach the whole window unit to the door using strips of double stick tape.
  • Attach the door to the card base using double stick tape.

Door cards have become very popular in paper crafting. It's fun to embellish the door with flowers and foliage to create a welcoming scene.

The Fence and Grass Layers

  • Cut the grass layer using green cardstock and the fence using white cardstock.
  • Attach double stick tape to the back of the grass layer and attach the fence sections.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the grass and fence layer and attach it to the card base.

The Macrame Planters, Flowers, Pots and Vines

  • Cut the pots pots using yellow cardstock and color using a mini applicator and inks from the Color Fuse Set #2.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the macrame planter and attach it to the flower pot using glossy accents.
  • Cut several sets of the leaves and greenery to use in the planter and to create the vines.
  • Use light and dark pink cardstock to cut the flowers and form them using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the foliage and flowers to the hanging planter and pot using glossy accents and attach them to the card base with strips of mounting tape.
  • Attach the tall vines to the door and fence using glossy accents.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the tiny flower buds to the vines.

The Puppy

  • Cut the puppy using white cardstock and color the ears, tail and feet using a dark brown marker.
  • Cut a small piece of white cardstock for the ear.
  • Color the ear with the brown marker and attach it to the puppy head using glossy accents.
  • Attach the puppy to the grass using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Note: I  think using an animal in an outdoor scene adds interest and adds a breath of life to the scene.

Door cards have become very popular in paper crafting. It's fun to embellish the door with flowers, foliage and a pet to create a welcoming scene.

I love making door cards.  Check out my Handmade Door CardChristmas Front Door Card and Home Sweet Home Card to see the different ways I used the door die set. I was amazed to see how many door cards there are on Pinterest for inspiration.  Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have an enjoyable weekend.  I hope everyone will be safe and cautious with so many states opening up.

Tropical Beach Card with Color Fuse Inks

I had so much fun making this colorful tropical beach card.  I created the beach scene background and colored all the tropical foliage and flowers using Color Fuse Inks by Rubbernecker.  The inks are so easy to work with and blend beautifully using blender brushes and applicators.  I love the large exaggerated foliage and flowers in the foreground with the ocean in the background.  

For this card I used the Rubbernecker Leaf Set. Sea Grass, Mixed Flower Stack, Birds, Deckle Hills and Rectangle Combo OPC #4.

This pretty tropical beach card was made using the Rubbernecker Color Fuse Inks. Come over to my blog to see my step by step coloring tutorial.

Creating the Ocean and Sky Background

4

  • Cut a 5.25″ x 4.00″ rectangle piece of white cardstock.
  • Apply a strip of masking tape down the middle of the cardstock.
  • Apply the ocean using a large blender brush and the Beach Side ink from Color Fuse Set #9.
  • Remove the masking tape.

5

  • Use a cloud stencil and blender brush to apply a fluffy cloud background using the Beach Side ink.
  • Move the cloud stencil around on the cardstock and lightly brush on the ink.
  • Note:  I flip the cloud stencil back and forth on each layer to create a more natural looking cloud layering.

6

  • Create the appearance of sea foam on the ocean using white embossing paste.
  • Use your finger to lightly dab on the paste.
  • Create some fine foam as well as a few heavier looking foam sections on the water.
  • Attach the background layer to the white card base using ATG adhesive.

Color the Foliage, Flowers and Seagull

1

  • Cut the foliage, flowers and gull using white cardstock.

2

  • Apply shades of the Fern and and Grass ink from the Color Fuse Set 11.

3

  • Apply Blush ink to the flower from the Color Fuse Set #5.

7

  • Apply Chill ink to the wings of the seagull from the Color Fuse Set #12.

Assemble the Card

8

  • Cut the rectangle frame layers using white cardstock.
  • Attach the two largest frame layers together using double stick tape.
  • Use Kraft cardstock to cut the Deckle Hill sand layer.
  • Attach the sand layer to the back of the frame.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the scene layer on the card base.
  • Attach the foliage and flowers to the card using glossy accents.
  • Finish the scene by attaching the gull in the sky area using a small piece of mounting tape.

Scooter Card

This scooter card with the scene set along the backyard fence was so much fun to make.  I used the flowering vines to soften the wood fence background and added small touches of red to match the scooter by placing a few birds in scene.  For this card I used the Rubbernecker Nested Rectangle Scallop, Scooter, Berries Branches, Spring Leaves, Tiny Flower Buds, Grass, Small Birds and Wood Fence Background.

I had so much fun making this scooter card with the wood fence background. Come see how I made this using dies made by Rubbernecker.

The Fence Background Layer, Grass and Card Base

  • Cut an A2 sized card base using red cardstock.
  • Use white cardstock to cut a rectangle layer for the fence.
  • Secure the stamp and cardstock in the MISTI, apply dark brown ink and stamp the image.
  • Apply the light brown ink to the wood fence layer by swiping the ink pad directly over the paper.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the fence layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Cut two sections of grass using green cardstock and use the scallop die to cut the bottoms to match the fence layer.
  • Attach the back grass section to the fence layer using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the front grass section and attach it to the fence layer.

Feminine Greeting Cards for All Occasions

I love creating feminine greeting cards with floral themes and pretty color combinations.  For this project I created a park bench scene with a soft aqua sky background and pretty purple flowers growing on the vines.  I love how this color combination is accentuated with the white frame and bench.  This would be perfect for a any occasion.  I used the Rubbernecker Rectangle Combo #2, Tree Panel #1, Park Bench, Grass, Grass #2, Flower Buds, Flower Stems and Tiny Flower Buds.
