Smile, I Turtley Adore You!

Welcome back!  Today is Tuesday, so that means its time to share another card featuring The Project Bin.  Today, I chose to use the stamp set called Love Your Shellfie.  I just love this cute, little turtle and there are also so many "punny" sentiments with this set as well.

I started my card by using a stitched rectangle die to frame the front panel.  I used the Smile word die from MFT at the bottom of the panel, then stamped the turtle as if he was standing on it.  That helped to ground him, because I've ever seen a floating turtle, LoL.  I used the Smile word die 5 more times and cut out the individual letters in various colors of patterned paper and then inlaid them into the negative spaces.  To color the turtle, I picked out some blues, greens and yellows from my always-growing collection of Copic markers, so he would coordinate with the patterned papers.  To add a little bit of whimsy to him, I gave him some polka dots using a white gel pen.

Next came the sentiment.  I used one of the sentiments that is also included in this set and white heat embossed it onto black card stock, then popped it up using foam squares.  To complete the card, I added some Glossy Accents to the hearts a little bit of bling for the finishing touch!

Thank you for stopping by!
