As in every month, there are also some wonderful Add-On products, and with some of those, I created two cards that I am sharing with you today. My first card features Deeply in Love stamp set, its matching frame cuts and a wonderful die called Underwater Pillar Window Die, take a look:
Using Hero Arts Orchid and Indigo Bold Inks I created a two color background. I used a sponge dauber to achieve an ombré effect. After that, I die cut the the pretty Underwater Pillar Window Die from it. I took a shortcut to create this shaker card, because I used a clear pocket envelope which I filled with green confetti and some gold sequins instead of creating it with acetate and foam tape as we normally do. Although, the sequins and confetti don’t move around as much as a normal shaker card. The envelope comes with a sticky back, so I stuck it over a folded card. Then, I simply affixed the window shape over it with a few foam squares.

Next, I used the Deeply in Love stamp set and matching frame cuts to create the dips diver and algae foliage. Notice that I use a bit of marker details over the diver, just so the image doesn’t look so flat. I adhered the stamped images over the card with glue dots and foam tape and I complemented the card with a stamped sentiment, sequins and some tiny hearts that I cut using the HA Nested Hearts.
Card #2 showcases the Submarine Fancy Die. So, I die-cut the submarine from four different colors of cardstock and using detail scissors, I trimmed off different parts of the shape, kind of like assembling a tiny puzzle. I put the pieces together using craft glue.
Then, I made a few strips from different colors of cardstock and I adhered them over a white panel to create a striped background. After that, I simply adhered the panel over a folded card and I adhered the submarine with foam tape.
Additionally, I stamped a sentiment from the Deep Sea Messages over white cardstock and I die cut it into a circle. I want to point out the this stamp set was designed to go with the HA Peek-A-Boo dies, but of course you can use the sentiment and images to create whatever your heart desires 😉 Finally, I simple adhered some Blues Hero Hues Enamel dots to complement my card.
