You're So Speshell

Hello again!  There's just something about "punny" sentiments that I love and this set does not disappoint!  For my card today, I used a stamp set from The Project Bin called Love Your Shellfie.  There is also a new addition to this stamp set, a coordinating die to cut out the turtle, which I love!

I started this card by using the Starburst Cover Plate to cut my background panel from white card stock.  Then I did something really dumb!  I used the die again to cut the rainbow paper and then used the die cut inlay technique to fill the negative spaces with the rainbow-themed paper.  Why was that dumb?  Well, I'll tell you.... all I needed to do was simply put it behind the white panel.  Duh!!!!  See, you're never too old to learn. 😉  I ended up cutting the white background 2 more times and then stacked the 3 of them together.  I really like the dimension that that created, even though is doesn't really show in the photo.

Next, I stamped the turtle and sentiment, and colored him using Copic markers.  I used a circle die to cut that out and then popped it up onto the card panel using foam squares.  That helped to create more of a focal point on my card.

For the finishing touch, bling, cuz we all gotta have a little bling!

Thank you for stopping by!
