CC Designs Tuesday June review…get your goggles out!

Are you ready for the fun-est card ever??? ok,  I do get excited now and then! hahaha

Meet… Snorkeling Beatrice!!!
Is she cute or what!  Lovin’ her curly underwater hair!
I had to place her in an underwater-ish scene… out came the magnetic QK holder full of CCD Cutters dies.
I used…
Shell and Starfish dies (cuts and embosses in one pass)
Bubble Border die (to die for) pun intended = )
Bubbles die (3 circle frames, I used the largest for the underwater adventures sentiment)
Squiggles die
Mistletoe die
Cloud dies

I stamped Snorkeling Beatrice on Papertrey Ink white select card-stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic Sketch Markers.  I cut her out with the Spellbinders Mega Oval Nestabilities die and embossed it while it was still in the die with my embossing stylus.  Left it in the die and turned it right side up and sponged on Distress inks with the ink blending tools.  First Tumbled Glass, then a little Broken China and last and the least Faded Jeans. Goggles have glossy accents on the lens.

The mats are all cut with the Perfect Layers Tools.  Even the card base.  I scored an 8.5 x 11 piece of Bazzill card-stock in half and folded it.  I held my Tim Holtz ruler at 1/4 in. on the card base fold and placed the top card section (w/adhesive on the back) butted up right to the ruler.  Pressed it down… then proceeded to cut the other three sides with the Perfect Layers tools 1/4 in.  Because it’s a double layer, you will have to go over your cut again.  Works slick!

Luv the cute little underwater adventures sign!  I just hand cut the post and glued the circle and sentiment to the top.  I did stamp the new CC Designs Woodgrain stamp on the post and the New circle frame die!   The rocks on the water bottom are actually clouds!  I know… those clouds work for everything… well almost!!! lol Clouds, snow and now rocks!  I just hand cut the little “seas the day” banner but it dawned on me after the fact that there is a die that would work for that too!   The little fishie is an old EK Success small Paper Shapers punch… I know… not around anymore but Christine will make us some fishie dies!  yea!

Bee-trice… be prepared to smile!

Here’s A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E.  Bee-trice!  Bee-trice and Berry Beatrice are part of the May Release for CC Designs!  LOVE!

Beatrice is stamped with Colorbox Wicked Black Archival ink on Canson Manga heavyweight drawing paper and colored with Distress markers… I do love these markers!!!  So if you can’t decide but you think you want them,  I’m here to tell you…they’re GREAT!  I do think having the right paper makes all the difference though.

I used four markers for her hair…Scattered Straw,  teeny bit of Mustard Seed…thought it was a bit something, so I added in a bit of Antique Linen and finally Wild Honey.

For her face I used…Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar and Dried Marigold…scribbled on an imagine sheet from my Stamp a ma jig and mixed together with a wet #2 Grumbacher paint brush (Goldenedge 4620 Round).  Her cheeks are Spun Sugar scribbled on the sheet and a wet paint brush.

Her Body is Black Soot, Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed.

I painted the ticket with these same markers and edged with Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool.  Pretty much all my paper edges are done, the same way.

I used the NEW ticket die (comes with two sizes) that matches the NEW Bees Knees Logo set.  The Buzz Ticket and Happy Bee-Day are from that set also.  (Happy Bee-day is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink)  I had to use the Grass Border die and the Flower Border die… LOVE them both!  So… guess how I crimped the grass that I cut with the Grass Border die???!!!  There is an awesome tool (link below) from Quilling Creations… called the Deluxe Crimper… it does strips of paper up to approximately 3/8 in. wide and you can choose between two sizes of crimping…  oh me oh my… I fell in love!  I love little things anyway and just the thought of having little crimping makes my heart beat faster! hahahahahaha   So you’ll be seeing lots of little bits crimped for awhile!

Pattern paper from the October Afternoon Seaside 8×8 paper pad.

Holler if I missed any info you need!

Bee-trice and I are buzzing off to start another card for tomorrow!  Come back for a NEW Swiss Pixie and a NEW Sugarplum.

Thanks for visiting today….stampers are the best kind of people!!!  That would be YOU!
