Ocean's Of Fun!

Good morning friends~  I've got a few sweet ocean themed card for you this morning using some fun dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  

I created the background on this card using the Ocean Edges die and Broken China Distress Oxide Ink.  This die set comes with 5 different wave designs so it's easy to create a random wave pattern.  I made my own stencil but cutting 4 different edges onto a square piece of thick vellum, one die for each side.  I simply rotate the vellum and stencil in another wave design.  Because of the thickness of the vellum, I was able to wipe it clean with a baby wipe and I'll have it to use over and over again!
I added some Seaweed that was cut from white cardstock and then covered in Silk Microfine Glitter by running the die cut through my Xyron and rubbing the glitter onto the surface making it sparkle.  The darling little Mermaid was cut and assembled and then I added some Clear Wink of Stella to her body. 

I'll be adding this card to the Simon Says Monday Challenge ~ Create Your Own Background

My next card uses Joset's Octopus.  I simply stenciled in some sunrays using Broken China DOX ink and stamped the sentiment from Splish Splash Sentiments.  I cut the octopus out of a soft orange card stock and added a bit of Spiced Marmalade DOX ink all around.  The bubbles are from the Sea Turtle die set, which you'll see in my next card.  Isn't he cute?

And here is the Sea Turtle, oh my!  I just love him!  He looks so happy to be swimming in amongst the seaweed.

My last card uses the Ocean Edges die and this adorable Whale die.  He comes complete with his little sailor's hat.  Oh my!  I think he's "s'whale"!  

I hope you're all staying well and healthy.  We're starting to see things opening up here in Maine, though I've discovered that I'm very happy staying at home.
Be well and 
Thanks for stopping by!

You are just amazing with your fabulous creations and dies, I think you are queen of the dies! I agree, all those sea creatures are just too too adorable! And I also agree that I am liking being home and not feeling guilty that I am not out runny errands, or "having" to do this or that...I guess we are homebodies at heart! We are in phase 2 of opening up...I actually got my hair cut yesterday! I was the only one in the shop, wore my mask the whole time as did my hairdresser. I felt safe! Heart Hugs, Col
