Hooray Otter // Card Creations11:00:00 AM
Hey there friends! It's a beautiful Tuesday in April and what else could I share with you today, but another otter card?! I know, I know, you're getting sick of these little fellas. Luckily, I just filmed a haul video which included a bunch of new stamp sets! So, be prepared for less otters and more cute cards! I really want to film more tutorials for cards as well, so if you do like my card videos please let me know and I'll plan to film more!
This little otter guy is from the same My Favorite Things stamp set. I stamped this little fella with some Staz-on black ink and then lightly water colored him. I then, made the sentiment piece. I used two stamps to create the little bubble using Memento black ink. This ink has really great coverage and I would really recommend it (but it is not water proof). These stamps are from a Whimsy Stamps stamp set.
The card base is the traditional size of 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". I layered a kraft cardstock panel on top of that. To create a base for my little otter man to lay on I used a couple of different materials. I used black polka dot washi tape from Scotch to give contrast. Then, I added some light blue lace ribbon on top of that for texture.
I also used a partial doily from Recollections behind my otter. I like how there are different shades of blue on this card. They almost represent the water ways that our little otter friend would be floating on. To finish off the front of the card, I used a couple Echo Park enamel dots. I love this beautiful light blue color because it matches the lace too.
I am enjoying putting something on the inside of my cards lately, so this card was no exception! This is the same sentiment I have been using from other cards which is from Whimsy Stamps again. I hope you enjoyed this other otter card. It's fun to see the variations of one stamp set on different cards. Thanks for stopping by!
