Stretch Your Supplies With Marine

Hi there, Marine here with a cute window scene. A few days ago, I shared this card inspired by Canadian landscapes, so today we’re going to zoom into this scene and get a close up at the cabin! (this card was also inspired by a card Keiko made last year) I started by cutting a frame out white woodgrain cardstock using the Gallery Frame #3. I only kept the middle part that I trimmed to get a 2 x 2 square window, and colored it using vintage photo and ground espresso distress inks. To create the wood planks, I...

An African Savannah Safari with Marine

Today’s card features some cuties from the More Jungle Littles stamp set, as well as a few other stamp and die sets that helped me to create this lovely savannah scene. I started by cutting a bristol panel measuring 8,5 x 4,5 inches. I created the sky using a homemade cloud stencil and tumbled glass distress ink.

I colored the bottom piece using shabby shutters and peeled paint distress inks to get a faded green grass, and colored...

I stamped the images on...

Feel welcome to watch the video at the end to see the process ^^ In my head, unicorns go with sparkles and maybe rainbows, so I cut three rainbow sections out of blue, silver and white adhesive glitter cardstock using...

Light Up Fairy Card with Marine

Today I am back with a new light up card featuring cute fairies by Hello Bluebird decorating their Christmas tree. I hope you’ll like it. I started by creating the background using non traditional Christmas colors: shaded lilac and spun sugar. As always, I splattered water on my panel and used a paper towel to dry it and add texture, and to create falling snow I simply splattered white paint on the paper. The images were stamped on neenah solar white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink and colored using my alcohol markers. Here are the supplies I used: – Fairy...
