CARD DETAILS

If you’ve been a follower of mine for some time you know that I love to use small stamps to create my own unique custom stamped patterns. And yes, there are all sorts of patterned papers out there that one can use for a card, but I think it’s super fun to be able to make a custom pattern yourself. You can pick the colors you like and you can stretch the use of the stamps that you have. So it’s a win win in my book.

Today I used two small surf board images from the Surf’s Up stamp set from Simon Says StampIt’s not hard to make this pattern at all, a few good tools will help you easily create it using these or any other stamps you might choose to use.

This is a liner pattern, in other words the surf boards are stamped more or less precisely on the background, the image placement is not random. To create this linear and non random look I like to use a clear block with a grid to help me align and stamp images perfectly. I also often use the grid on my cutting mat and align it with the grid on my clear block for even more precise placement.

I used Simon’s Intense Black ink for my stamping and stamped surf boards forming a pattern on my card. Once the first row was stamped it became much easier to align and stamp the rest as for this particular pattern the images sort of nestle inside each other. It’s just a matter of inking up and stamping these first boards.

I used Copic markers, some of my go-to colors, to color these images. I used:

  • YG67, YG17 and YG25 to color green surf boards;
  • BG18, BG15 and BG32 to color teal surf boards;
  • RV14, RV13 and RV11 to color pink boards
  • Y35, Y13 and Y11 to color yellow boards.

I also used a cool gray C1 marker to add a light gray shadow around each board to create the illusion of dimension on my card.

Next, I used my Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen and added a bunch of sparkle to each of the boards. I also coated some of the boards using Glossy accents and finally, once everything was dry I used a white gel pen and added highlights to some of the boards.

I stamped “Surf’s Up” sentiment, added a colored palm tree and umbrella along with a cute little sea gull and called this card done!
